I would laugh so hard if the Orzhov cleric kicks this giant's ass. I mean, he looks pretty dangerous!!

I had the absolutely most ridiculous conversation at the pre-release event involving this card. Okay, so player A had a 3/3 creature with first strike and player B had a 3/3 creature without first strike. Player A cast this card with the intent of both of those creatures fighting and insisted that because his creature had first strike, it would deal damage before player B's creature and not die as a result of the fight. Obviously, player B disagreed because first strike does not matter when creatures fight. Naturally, player A continued to say he was right. Eventually, they called a guy who was supposedly rather informed and should have been able to make the right call. BUT THIS GUY SIDED WITH PLAYER A! This is where I stepped in and sided with player B because he was obviously right. And to break the tie, I got another person who was relatively respected to get his opinion on it. AND HE SIDED WITH PLAYER A TOO! And, since I was relatively new at this place, and since player B lost int... (see all)

@Kaeru_Jones: That's usually just a bordercase restriction, though.
Sure, there are creatures like Stuffy Doll, or cases where you want to get rid of your creature.
But in general, i'd much rather just pay half the amount of mana to get this effect.

If you have a deck where you need to get rid of a creature in general, you can use sac outlets instead.
Until you happen to experience the rare case that your opponent still managed to put you in a situation where you would like to get rid of your creature but can't, you'll probably have appreciated the mana cost of Prey Upon more than that of Pit Fight - at least in a monogreen deck.

Well this is what green gets for creature killing. And it ain't bad, I'd say. Only slightly more restrictive than some over removal spells.

Every time I play this I say, "You two, fight to the death."

Why rated so low? This is really versatile, and better than prey apon.

Green creatures are huge. And you don't have to play red; you can play this in just a green deck.

Instant speed Prey Upon. I can't see it being much use outside of a green deck or a RG deck that needs a little more color consistency, but this card is pretty nice. I like how the developers are trying to give green more removal that doesn't suck. Very much appreciated.

The problem I have with this card is that nowhere does it say COMBAT damage. So does this card force those creatures into combat (tapping/attacking/defending)? If they simply do dmg equal to their power to each other outside of combat, then effects like first strike would not apply. What I am wondering is would this apply to TRAMPLE as well? Let's say you cast this and select your Giant Adephage to fight your oponent's Warmind Infantry would the trample effect allow the surplus damage to carry over to your opponent and therefore allow the Adephage to create another copy?

Too bad the name "Mortal Combat" was already taken... Fun card!
