Just for kicks, I targeted myself with it. The card I kept? Yawgmoth's Will.

Dark Ritual. I feel that people are forgetting that black has the 2nd best colored mana acceleration in the game.

Anyone who has run 4x Dark Ritual knows how much fun it is to play cards like this on turn one.

This card really shines in multiplayer games more so than in regular duels. There's always that one player who tries to hide in the corner and stay out of the way, sitting on nothing but lands and maybe one or two mediocre creatures, waiting to pull off an inconceivable combo that ruins everyone. That player is precisely who you want to target with this.

In most other scenarios, I would rather have Mind Rot or Mind Sludge. This card is really only effective in duels if you resolve it much earlier than turn 5 (say perhaps turn 2 or 3 with nuts acceleration) or when you resolve it very late in a stalemated game.

That being said, in M12 limited, which is where I would be most likely to main-deck this card, a well-placed Mind Rot or Smallpox is usually enough to ruin your opponent's game plan. This is not only overkill, but ineffective if not timed correctly.

Overall, meh. I would rather have seen autoc... (see all)

THis is very easy to pull off on t3 with some ramp. If it gets through you have a sick card atvantage. All you noobs have no vision and have no idea how fast a 5 drop can be played if you build your deck right.

I got it. Against control late game, play a large Blue Sun's Zenith at the end of their to make them draw a bunch of cards. Then, play this on your turn and leave them with one card in their hand. Keep a Negate in case they try to counter. You just wiped their card advantage and you still have your Blue Sun's Zenith in your deck.

What I fail to understand is why people so quickly discredit this card.
Yes, it is expensive. Yes, you more than likely can't get it out until late game.

So what?

If you're running a U/B draw and discard deck, then this is perfect. It could even end the game.
Think about it, if you make your opponent draw 5 or 6 cards in one turn and then use this, end of game. (if you are running Liliana's Caress or Megrim )

I personally have a U/B deck that runs this. It has won many games.

This card, (like almost all others) is best used in combo with other cards. Simply looking at the card and saying it sucks, without actually going over the possible implications, is completely counterproductive. And that goes for any card.

What many fail to realize is that some cards are not "swiss army knives". Some cards do one thing, and that's it. This is one of those cards. It makes players discard, plain and simple.

Cast it on yourself with a decently full hand from black draw.

"Wow, you're discarding all those awesome creatures? What card did you keep?"
"Twilight's Call."

Really helps you to have your opponent discard their hand when your not running Mono Black. Sure it costs five mana total but the 3 of it is colorless. Since it shuts your opponent down of their opportunities with a larger hand, I use it with great success. Was able to get this spell out against a mono-white deck. This card single handedly deprived him of several life gaining/enchantment cards. It'll be in my deck for a long time to come yet based on how nice this is. :)

Sweetest discard art I've seen.... Besides perhaps Cabal Therapy
