Okay, so a hornet sting equals a spear through the chest (Gut Shot), half a blast of electricity to the chest hitting twice (Staggershock) or a third of getting stuck in the face by a Lightning Bolt. One badass hornet.

INSECTOMANCERS REJOICE!! Fits right into my suck your blood, leave you with itchy sores, stab you with butt harpoons, inject you with venom bug deck.

Royal Assassin your days are numbered.

This card is critical for mana dork killing in mono-green. The fact that it comes at instant speed is also a critical asset. It will see play in some sideboards as long as there are a good number of tournament-level decks that rely on the Mythic manabase.

this is actually something I really wanted for my mono-green decks. Some type of weenie creature removal. using an elves deck or eldrazi spawn deck against a vampire deck with blood seekers can be a huge problem, but this gets rid of that 1/1 quickly. not over powered, not totally useless. 3/5

I think everyone is forgetting one important thing about this spell.

Sure, you can gut an enemy creature with Beast Within, Dismember, or splash red for hitting players too...

But when you die to this, you don't just die. You pack up your cards, go home and think about what you've done.

Because you just got your ass handed to you by a bee.

Play with Godhead of Awe in GreenWhiteBlue decks. "What's that? ... NOT THE HORNETS! AARGHLUBLGAHA"

Strictly better than Scorching Spear.
