Oh my God, you people are retarded.
It's three direct poison counters.
Three. That's one, two, three.
It was meant to be a finisher and nothing else.
As a finisher- it's everything we need it to be.

It's a fun, versatile card. Can be a finisher, can fetch you another finisher if it still won't do it. This helps infect, making it more of a threat in the late game, catching your opponent off guard, and keeping them on their toes after seeing this hit once. And it's not over-costed. If you manage to get your opponent down to six poison, you can proliferate with the Clasp and follow with this.

For me, one of the strongest card in the block, maybe the more influential one. Now, we all know about the danger of the 7th poison counter against a black-infect deck (or the 6th with the zero activation cost of Throne of Get on the battlefield). If you are not running with some counterspell, this card is obviously a 4 or 5 turn kill spell, at uncommun range. And some counterspell like Ricochet Trap are not terrible if the opponent doesn't run an infect-deck. With some powerful infect creature, I think any black deck have to run with two or three of this. And in some crappy situation, you can target yourself... So I give a 5/5 because of the existence of this threat in standard: we have to calculate our attack/block choice in regard of a possible Caress of Phyrexia in the opponent hand.

1 titanic growth on a blighted agent = 5 poison counters. 1 Titanic Growth on a blighted agent with livewire lash = 9 poison counters. Ranger's guile to counter spot removal and deal another poison counter, 3 more if you got the lash on. If your not 1 shotting your opponent, your not playing infect right.

This is to slow and waste of a deckslot in an infect deck. If you dont kill your opponent with those 3 counters, this is very bad to play.

isnt it far far far better to use this on opponents?

Best finisher in a Poison Control deck. A nearly unstoppable (Aside from counterspells) 3 Poison Counters for 5 is good in my book. And if you aren't facing Infect and you need to draw some it's nice for that too.
