~3 seems like a harsh rating for this card. It's obviously designed primarily with limited in mind, and in that respect, it's removal that's going to kill a lot of creatures worth killing - if a creature is on curve its toughness is likely to be either on or below curve, and as such, POW!

Stop hitting yourself. Stop hitting yourself.

Gelzo has the right idea. But I want to see this reflected in the art. NEW PROMOTIONAL ARTS, WITH MONSTERS WE KNOW AND LOVE HITTING THEMSELVES! Imagine it...

Withengar Unbound, punching himself in the face.
Deadly Recluse poking itself once and immediately exploding.
Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite whacking a crack into her silly porcelain toilet-face, and then going "Oowwww....."
Kraken Hatchling flailing uselessly, for it does not have the sufficient length in whatever limbs it owns to hit itself in the fleshy bits.
Or just a human face like Village Survivors giving themselves a nosebleed after smacking themselves.

Actually, Repentance was back in black (Kiku's Shadow), that now is back in red... Wonder why they didn't keep the white nor black mana cost. If I remind correctly, they said that the Kiku's mana cost was more appropriate, than the white. At least, they could have made it an instant...

I think that it should cost {2R}... Flavour red damage-based removal! Should become a staple!


@DarthParallax: Great idea! A removal that costs {0} wouldn't be broken, we all know, surely not in a card that would give card advantage on its own. Moreover, a removal that could be played in every color wouldn't break the color pie. We need other form of color violation, because Planar Chaos and New Phyrexia didn't teach anything about it.

Seriously now. The 'must choose the same target' clause is the only way in you can make a card like this (preserving the Flashback {0}, I mean), but is of the most inelegant rule text I've ever read. Not to say that it's u... (see all)

This should have had Flashback 0. Becuase, just once, I want to see Flashback 0, and this seems like a good effect to use it on BOTH for Teh Lulz and for 'most balanced to repeat for free'.

Increase it's original casting cost to 4RR to compensate for the Flashback? Oh, and also make sure you preserve the flavor with some kind of rider 'must choose the same target.' THAT would be balanced, not getting to destroy TWO different creatures -.-

@CyborgGorilla: Wrack with Madness states "Target creature deals damage to itself..." ergo, Belltower Sphinx is the source of the damage, and it mills its controller.

There's no reason to run chaff like this. Just splash White like a good boy or girl and Dispatch/Path/STP those Colossi.

Repentance is better, just white.

I always wanted to see a card like this. Fantastic.

I was wondering what would happen if I were to target Belltower Sphinx with this. Is this card the source of the damage, meaning I get milled, or is Belltower Sphinx the source, in which case its controller gets milled?

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
