@Anyone who is saying this card breaks into Black territory too much, your point is invalid. Notice everyone comparing this to Wing Shards, a card that is from a set released 7 years ago. If you have a problem with white getting a sacrifice effect on a card with the attacking restriction, that's fine, but this isn't anything new, so don't be surprised like it is.

If the opponent is attacking with a single creature, this is better than Divine Verdict or Chastise or similar cards for the ability to go around indestructibility, regenerate, and shroud. However, if the opponent is attacking with multiple creatures, this card seriously loses value if one happens to be the bomb you want to kill and the other is a tiny creature that could take the hit instead. Nonetheless it's a pretty good card.

I am very picky, and I have low regard for most of the cards in existence. However, there are a few cards that rise head and shoulders above the rest for cards that I loathe. All of the "target player sacrifices an attacking creature" cards are on that list.
These aren't answer cards, these aren't strategic cards. They are crazy lame cards that make you second guess attacking with only your best creature EVERY attack of EVERY game. They don't have much power, really, as far as removal goes, but occasionally they gank the attacking player in spectacular fashion.
I am not disappointed by counterspells, direct removal, or having my combos spoiled, but this mechanic irks me. They reprint it just often enough that I can't forget it, but you can't play intelligently around this card. Does a good player see three untapped plains and think "I'm going to attack with my dragon, and throw my goblins in as well even though most won't survive just to protect my dragon"? No, because if they d... (see all)

Nothing beats:

Opponent: I attack with everything, at Elspeth.

Response: Tap 3 plains, dispense justice, pick two.

Opponent: Okay, are you blocking the other four?

Response: Nope. Tap 2 Gold Myr and a Palladium Myr; double Soul Parry. You done?

Opponent: Yeah...

@Frozenwings - White is the new Black, can't you tell? Any black ability that removes a creature can be made totally white by adding the "attacking" restriction. And since it's now a white spell, it has to be better than just plain old "destroy".

Not bad. Wing Shards is far better, but still this is alright. Beeing dependant on artifacts sucks a bit, so... 4.5 for wing shards and 3 or 3.5 for this.

Can stop Progenitus, Protection, Shroud, Hexproof, etc.

@ white sacrifice effect:
You're absolutely right. This shouldn't be a white ability. Just because it restricts the typical black ability to combat, doesn't make this ability right for the opposite color. They should have rephrased it.
