I would still play this in a budget ramp deck. 6 Mana is not that hard to ramp into, and your taking out a threat plus removing a threat in hand. There is a good chance they will not have a land in hand at this point.

Is it too expensive? Of course. Can it still work? Most definitely.

Unconditional removal for 6 mana is never bad--even at sorcery speed.
Time has shown that any removal is better than no removal. This sort of card is more than fine if you have access to a limited card selection and your options are few.

2.5/5 - acceptable removal in limited / possible inclusion in newbie casual decks

Rough story. Even in an aggro deck with late-game slots open looking to synergize off discards and hand destruction--the perfect place for this--it's still just not worth the cost.

If this assassin was mine I'd fire him :/

Perhaps this was the end result of some bet to see if it was possible to make a terrible removal card without being too obvious about it. Twice the cost of Murder at half the speed! But they discard a card... who cares? Blah... This thing could have destroyed 2 creatures instead of 1 and still seen little play.

What were Wizards thinking when they made this card?! To make it uncommon too is just insane. And in a bad way.

This is an uncommon?

Lets see. Lets add 3 to the cost and reduce it to sorcery speed, and see what we can add to it.

A single discard effect? Really? That's it?

2BlackBlack would have made it playable and a good uncommon.

It's a good thing this is uncommon, because you don't want to see it every other pack. This is a draft mid-pick out of a weak pool at absolute best.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
