It costs less overall for any amount of damage than Rod of Ruin does for just one ping, and it gives you card advantage as well. Six mana is a tad high, but in EDH that's no problem at all. This is even seeing play in Standard sideboards. 5/5

I like that they have another option for white and/or red EDH decks. Those colours have the least options for drawing cards.

Why not print a BlueRed version of it? In this way, it should cost less...

Even though it's not exactly the same, I like to call it "Staff of Niv."

@lord_of_phyrexia: You're either trolling or stupid. Either way, 0/5 for you.

I win with this many times in mono black. Shooting and drawing for win...

Great card. Against green it's great to hurt reptiles, or using it as an eraser for weenies, or just putting your opponent into a slow downward spiral that brings you closer to victory.

This card is actually getting one-ofs in Legacy MUD decks right now. :o

Woefully underpowered for how much it costs. For 6cmc it needs to draw 2 cards to be worth it for me.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
