Hello, Power Creep Inc.? Yes, we have a Mr. Waste Away here. He's complaining about something like Dismember ?

Me being nitpicky: viruses aren't technically "living things" (but then again, I imagine the phrase "disease-causing bacteria" doesn't have quite the same gravity).

This card once made me win a very important game by destroying a Silvos, Rogue Elemental and swing for the win with a boosted Wild Mongrel.

I can't help but give this card 5 stars for the sheer memory.

As a matter of course, unreliable removal for five mana urgently needed additional card disadvantage.

I'd much rather run Sickening Shoal since you can sink excess mana into it to kill a bigger creature (whereas by itself Waste Away will not be able to kill of an 9/9) as well Sickening Shoal is more useful in the early game since it can be used to take out smaller threats, sure paying {1}{B}{B} to kill an X/1 isn't very efficient, but that is usually the tradeoff of {X} spells. The ability to pitch another black card also one-ups Waste Away in that you can pitch when you're backed into a corner, whereas here it's an additional cost meaning that if Waste Away is countered or for whatever reason fizzles, you're still discarding a card.

Might want to try Disciple of Tevesh Szat instead.

Yes, it is possible to make horrible creature kill.

It's as if they increased the casting cost to balance out the "ability" to lose a card from your hand. Now, sure, it enables Madness and such, but still - it is costing you 2 cards and 5 mana to kill a creature. Rather horrible.

Heh, yeah, that's about right.

Eh, it's not the junk that some of these worthless cards are. If somebody was new to the game and using a madness/threshold deck, I wouldn't laugh at them for using it.

Compare with pull under.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
