There's a reason Nevinyrral's Disk costs $10 a card and Pernicious Deed costs $25 a card. The Disk can be better in certain scenarios, yes, but in most decks where you can access the BlackGreen, Pernicious Deed is better. The great thing about the Deed is that you can CHOOSE what you want to destroy. If the thing that's winning you the game has 4cmc, you can use the deed to only hit everything ≤3cmc. And unlike other CMC sweepers like Powder Keg/Ratchet Bomb, this hits "cmc X or less," not "cmc equal to X." And of course this, unlike all those others (Disk included), can be activated the turn it hits the field.

This is my favorite card of all time. My friend used to play decks that constantly pumped crap out... and this card let me turn the tide against him. It lets you keep your big stuff around while clearing the board of enemy weenies- it protects you in multiplayer- it covers all the major permanent types... with the exception of Planeswalkers, which you could easily turn into an advantage. 5/5, forever.

Hey, it's Freyalise. Always wondered what she was meant to look like.

Which do you think is a better card to have in your hand at any time, this or Vindicate? Like just in any old match-up.

5/5. Just too good. I'll never be this card's best friend.

If this were printed nowadays, it would be a mythic that costs 2 more.

This card is an easy 5/5, and anybody who says otherwise hasn't played against it.

I remember pulling multiples of these when I was a kid and Apocalypse just came out. I was usually glad just because I knew people wanted them.

I'm pretty sure I traded one for a Sapphire Leech... then another one for a Wayward Angel later. Man, the adults really took advantage of me.

@ ZimmerRemmiz: And it would also destroy Planeswalkers.

Not only is it *that much better* than Gaze of Granite for obvious reasons, it has subtle reasons that it's better:

-It's {B} less color intensive, which is helpful
-It doesn't have {X} in it's cost, meaning that it's harder to counter-spell (due to you leaving mana open or casting it earlier). White also occasionally gets hard counters to {X} spells (not counterspells, but you get what I mean, like Medic)
-It's allowed to be activated at instant speed, meaning you can wait to pour in the same mana you would've anyway in order to kill an extra permanent, or to be ready to kill a crucial creature with another kill spell before igniting it the next turn.
-A pro *and* a con is that it misses planeswalkers. This sets it up perfectly for Garruk Wildspeaker to ramp it up a ton while protecting you with beasts. Also, Liliana of the Veil may see use in a deck with this included, and her low/common cost means ... (see all)
