Deadly Allure, Virulent Swipe if you care about the instant. I suppose it gives any creature deathtouch, but....eh.

I'd have liked this much better if its mana cost was 0 and its ability cost 2, or something like that.

Bad. Could have been decent, like a common Brittle Effigy, maybe.

This is a rattle snake card. You stick it on the field, giving your creatures a bit of protection from some of the larger creatures on the field. This gives you some opportunity to go in for a few points of damage. In limited, this is a good choice for your deck. In constructed or even commander, I would look elsewhere. Still. I give it a 5/5 for its use in limited. And that is all it really needs.

If activation was 0, perfectly fine.

Run this with Glissa, the Traitor to get the back to your hand. continual deathtouch since you'll probably only sacrifice this when you're killing an opponent's creature.

This + Polukranos, World Eater

Maybe a silly question, but I'm very new to MTG. We just played a multiplayer game, and one of the players had just assigned attackers to me and another player. I had no creatures left, and this hit would kill me. I did however have Vial of Poison, and my vengeful self had a trick up my sleeve. My question: am I allowed to sacrifice Vial of Poison to give another player's creature deathtouch? And if it is, is it frowned upon?

Changes how your opponent plays. Any card that involves psychology and tactics is good in my book.

Much better in draft than I originally thought. The trick is finding a monster to use this on that will not 2 for 1 you. Good choices are Tenacious Dead, Striking Sliver, and expendable token creatures that you get from Young Pyromancer, Sporemound or Hive Stirrings.

Lots of ways to get your value out of this card. If you are lucky enough to also draft a Trading Post you can bring it back into play.
