Using it now in black/red creature destruction deck. Fairly necessary if your going to run 3 of the new Abyssal Persecutor coming out in Worldwake. Veinfire Borderpost is a black permanent that can be usefully used with it.

Terminate seems better in constructed most of the time. If you absolutely must have more removal, I guess this could work. In limited, it's usually excellent removal.

A very fine spot-removal to get around all that protection from black (and sometimes white) nonsense. Makes a great sidearm for any RB mass destruction deck.

boo to most of you, this card is great in drafts, and if your setting up your cascade on a 3 mana spell like demonic dread and DONT want to hit a terminate then it fixs it, and ive also used this as a draw spell to net me two cards of a swans :D

I like this card together with terminate..spellbreaker behemoth cannot do anything about this one..I use this in my grixis unearth deck. this one is a preparation to remove defenses unearth all my critters terminate and temper the defence and then attack.

Don't undersetimate this card...have this in ur deck with Terminate giving you 8 copies to destroy 8 creatures... combine the two with Infest or the famous Volcanic Fallout to get rid of those token producers (Sprouting Thrinax) and other weenie creatures...Now its a massive killing and ur opponent is in a middle of a graveyard...

Obsolete, Terminate exists. The flavor is surperb, just about anything with Sarkhan flavor text rocks with draconic force. Its a shame however that one of Sarkhan's cool flavor texts was wasted on this card.

I want to love this card but it's just lost its luster after I realized that swamps were not black. Made sense a few years ago :/

This card fails. If you control a black permanent, then you should have something that makes black mana, and therefore can afford Terminate
