Hate this card so much. Really wish they didn't bring it back. It's far too painful against decks that aren't prepared for it, especially when the deck that's included it can easily account for at least the discard and sacrifice portions of it (ie. Reassembling Skeleton for both, which will still be legal in Innistrad). Besides the sacrifice and discard, 1 life is laughable, and the land ditch can easily be offset by running a low CMC deck in the first place.

Basically, it's a great card to *use*, but a terrible card to play against, and that's why I hate it - the gulf between the two is pretty large.

I used this to screw over a guy who played Darksteel Sentinel.

I use it with Charmbreaker Devils in Rakdos, Lord of Riots edh. Does quite a good job of shutting the game down entirely. It's not like I'm going to miss the land, since I'm playing all my Eldrazi for zero mana.

During one game, on turn 2, I managed to catch a player with a Llanowar Elves and a Utopia Sprawl'd Forest. That's four cards in the graveyard (including the discard)! Shut 'em down pretty hard.

Simply LOVE this card for all its suicide black goodness.

Tarmogoyf loves Smallpox. Tombstalker loves Smallpox. Legacy Junk decks run four Tarmy and four Tomby and zero Smallpox. Go figure.
