Yeah! Throw this on an infect creature, attack, when they block to kill play Withstand Death and you got the choice of giving a creature 2 -1/-1 counters or a player 2 poison counters.

Also works if they try to use some removal on your infect creature. Win/win situation card here.

Does Virulent Swipe's deathtouch kick in before the damage is dealt? It would be awesome to give a creature deathtouch before it dealt 2 damage to target creature/player.

stuffy doll, pariahs shield, this, win even faster,

in multiplayer, take down multiple people with one stuffy doll

however the most obvious of all is infect. protects your creatures like the tree of woe

Also Spellskite seems built for this

I have a Black/Red infect deck that loves this card:

It makes Vampire Bite on my Infect Creature bite just a little bit harder. Assault Strobe gives it two bites. Panic Spellbomb and Smouldering Spires get it through early. Flame Slash lets me get a final 2 poison damage through if I have to. All around awesome card for infect decks.

@Akaleth: Unfortunately, the Lash won't trigger from the Mountains' ability, since it only triggers on being targeted by a spell. Abilities, unusually, aren't included. I made the same mistake when I first looked at the card.

Could a few of these in a green deck, Overrun -> Giant Growth -> Attack
