Hilarious when used with a prince of thralls under your control. Or if you have a necroskitter in play and played a soul snuffers the turn before.

This, with Liliana Vess on the table. :) Not that she can't do with Damnation as well, but it's actually harder to get and more expensive. And mana isn't that much of a factor in monoblack decks - even without Dark Rituals, some Cabal Coffers and/or a Nirkana Revenant or two, and you can cast whatever you want.

Anyone else think it'd be cool if there was a card that let you destroy any number of target creatures? I guess normally it would function like this card, but it would be more open to Donate shenanigans and the like.

Awesome card. Just the right cost for the effect. If all else fails you can speed things up with Dark Ritual.

Remember, this is a finisher, not a combo piece or a defensive reset button. Your opponent is laid bare, virtually defenseless, and the game has gone long enough to resolve a 9 mana spell, if you don't win on the turn you cast this, you are bad at magic and should find a new hobby (or at least stop playing black ramp decks?)

Good card for Lord of Extinction as well. Me and some of my friends were just doing a casual 3-way match with teams of two people, just to see how it went, and one of my friends was playing a deck that focused on resurrecting and the like. There were a ton of creatures on the field, and he had this card ready to use, but my Lord of Extinction just happened to have Shroud, so he knew what would happen if he did. :B He never got a chance to use it.

@steez4days: Not always better than this. This works wonders in multiplayer where Overwhelming Forces works best against a single player. There's nothing wrong with running both if you can afford them though - Overwhelming Forces deals quite handily with anyone trying to amass tokens.
