The sight that steals memories from the mind that tries to comprehend it. To look upon it is to be eaten.

Another one of the dark stars in my black kami deck. With all of the black spirit and arcane spells being synergistic, this guy can easily exile up to two cards from an opponents hand each turn- all while punching them really hard in the face.

Need a crafty way to cast arcane spells quickly, but I'm sure one could do that, especially if you just abused this this Goryo's Vengeance

It's instant speed, so you may be able to combo it with Panoptic Mirror. I.E. respond to the mirror's trigger (that has an imprinted rend flesh) with this guy. The free casting exiles a card from their hand. You may have something else in your hand that's arcane...

Look.. I tried alright?

Kyoki's design actually compels me to want to create a spirit/arcane EDH deck.

I'm actually a little surprised that this is only a 6-drop. Compare to Myojin of Night's Reach which wipes the whole hand at instant speed but only works once and for 8 cmc. Oh, and you have to play the latter from hand for the effect, this can be reanimated...

I really want to like this card because the exile effect is great. The only problem is that it hits the table so late in the game and discard decks are most effective when the game is still fresh and new (when people still have a hand full of cards). I just pulled this from an old pack of Betrayers and I want to build around it just for fun but I think I will have to go reanimator if I want decent results.

If I could redesign this card, I would make him casting cost BlackBlackBlack with a 4/3 body so you could dark ritual him out but not without risk.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
