@ mrbackproblem20:

No, spell or creature mana abilities would not contribute to making this card stronger. "Swamp" means "swamp lands you control," not "Black mana in your mana pool." Only lands that count as swamps meet this card's requirement, so basic swamps, dual lands that count as both, lands that have been turned into swamps via a spell or ability, etc... are all that matter for Corrupt's purposes.

I think you mean that's the LEAST it could do.

This can be a win condition in a mono-black deck. Time to dust off my Urza's block Corrupts.

I like the 7th Edition art better. The dude making a face as he gets corrupted makes that picture both hilarious and awesome. Still, a decent card. I'm going to really miss tendrils of corruption when it rotates though.

I like this beter then consume spirit for obivous reasons. I love how there pushing mono colors again with cards like this, i think the game should encourage that.

This an ol' 'tuko are back for some good-reprint monoblack beats.

On constructed: Tendrils of Corruption is better at killing creatures, and as far as killing players goes, there are too many better options. Also, as far as "per Swamp" cards go, Mind Sludge is cheaper and its effect is much better.
On limited: Say you're running two colors, even split. That means that most games, this'll only hit for three on turn six. Yeah, that'll help in a race, but it's not too impressive otherwise. Never pick this early first pack unless you're set on drafting black, and don't pick it too early in the next two packs unless you're going heavy black. However, when you are running heavy black, this card becomes a bomb, and that volatility sometimes calls for exceptions to the advice above.

i love this card. in a mono black, the worst it can do is deal 5 damage and give you 5 life. thats the worst it could do

A waste for the name... and it should stay common. But the rest is good.
