One of the strongest multiplayer cards when it comes to finishers, but requires dangerous combo.

Platinum Angel with your choice of protection. Bring yourself down to zero life as fast as possible, and cast this. Once Repay resolves successfully, almost guaranteed you will win, unless someone else has their own Platinum Angel out.

Without some sort of goofy combo, this is pretty bad. 7 mana so you can bring everyone down to you, but not kill them? And if you're ahead it's worse than useless?

Should have costed less mana.
Given that you need at least two more cards (one to bring you down to about one life, and another one to send your opponent to death) to succeed, seven mana is quite much.
Aside from the fact that saccing you down to such a low life is already incredibly dangerous anyways since your opponent might have some burn or counter spells in hand. And if that's the case, you'll be either be hosed immediately or as soon as he/she starts the turn.

saved me in prerelease. can really turn the momentum of the fight. its funny to look accross the table and see someone who just went from 24 life down to three. if your playing with eldrazi token spawners its really not that bad of a mana cost. i would like to see how this could be used with death's shadow

It's definitely meant to be used in some sort of a combo-ish way. That said, it's pretty good in multiplayer, where it likely hurts you, but it probably hurts others a whole lot more.

More than a combo piece, I see it as a lifegain hoser, and a really good one at that. It's common at Free For All games that someone goes over the double digit lifecount, this keeps the lifegain honest.

I rate it a 4, only because I like Magister Sphinx a lot more (since it is a win condition by itself)

This would be real fun card to play in a late game with an Everlasting Torment in play...

Sorin, meet Hidetsugu the Heartless. Hidetsugu, meet Sorin Markov. I'm sure you two will get along JUST fine, considering your shared hobby.

Although its a pointless combo, I'll give major style points to anybody who uses this with Near-Death Experience

A very interesting card for a multiplayer suicide deck- Get to low life in exchange for a dominating board presence, then cast this card.

I could see myself using this in EDH, since I'm usually the biggest target on the field anyway.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
