I play red/green and i could make use of this car to a certain point. Oh you have a 13/13 Trampler, well now you have 13 1/1 elves, well not anymore, pyroclasm.

This + Leyline of Singularity.

If you underestimate the power a mercy killing holds i'll tribal you any day.

First of all it is a creature removal, ok so not a Great creature removal but still if there's a god sire on your opponents side let them have the elves.

Secondly it's a instant speed elf generator. let's pretend there about to trash your jagged-scar archers then why not throw a mercy killing at it and have a small elves army ready for your coat of arms to pump up.

I am defending this card because it has saved me games mostly when combo'd with a heedless one or wirewood pride .

this and Joraga Warcaller is a fantastic combo, you sac one of your 5/5 (or more) elves, and that elf become FIVE 5/5 elves!

My Elf deck goes off with this. Viridian Joiner and Umbral Mantle is the main combo. however, this works nicely to enable indefinate elves, helping my wellwisher and timberwatch elf.

When not enabling combos, it is a great mono- green kill spell

You play this in an Elf deck and didn't mention Immaculate Magistrate?

Ok, please tell me why I pulled this card and Rhys the Redeemed in a pack yesterday. Awesome stuff! I am definitely going to use this card. And in my green and white elf deck I have a few heavy hitters I can let go for a bunch of these that I get to double next turn. I'll gladly sac Primalcrux or Terra Stomper for this beauty

Oh, how I love these in my elf deck... Sigil Captain in play, attack with your largest creature, such as Altar Golem or Drove of Elves, for distraction and possibly some initial damage, Mercy Kill the poor thing when it's outlived it's usefulness for the turn, drop Wilt-Leaf Liege and tap Oran-Rief, the Vastwood (or a couple of them). Suddenly, the board is full of 6/6 (or larger) pointy-eared abominations.

Timberwatch Elf is wonderful in combination with this card.

This works wonders with 2 Joraga Warcallers and an Immasculate Magistrate on the field. I'm talking infinite tokens with Infinite Power and Toughness. Use I.M.'s tap ability on one of the J.W.s and their ability will bounce off each other, eventually becoming infinity. Then sacrifice one with mercy killing, and voi'la!! Of course, this is probably only acceptable in friendly play! xD

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
