does Marit Lage from Dark Depths count for this?

This is like a slightly more versatile Where Ancients Tread, but more mana intensive. In most cases, you can just play a cheapo power 5 creature with Where Ancients Tread and let that do the talking.

If the casting and activation cost were lower this would be an amazing card. As is, it still seems playable but has never made it into top-tier decks, even as a sideboard.

With 6 mana available, an attacking Hero of Bladehold could also dish out 2 shocks each turn...problem is the 6 mana.

Interesting, but probably too expensive per activation.

Good in commander though.

It might not be useless but I'm willing to bet that in development it was a lot better before they realized it would be i followed by a set with Magic's biggest creature ever and then a set with infect creatures. Kind of wish they just kept this design on the shelf for a couple years when they felt like they could put it into a set without nerfing it.

Works well with Stigma Lasher, Heartlash Cinder and Nova Chaser.

I admit this card may have its uses, but it seems just too costly to pay 3 mana to activate this. Plus whatever manacost the creature requires. But I'd like to be surprised by good, repeatable use of a card like this, though. Maybe something for a red-green deck with lots of mana? And then with some big creatures to really get a bang for your buck.

Just use pandemonium instead. The downside is negligible since your deck will be built around it, your opponents won't.

Gonna put this in my Shimatsu EDH deck - 7 mana and sac all my permanents to do that much damage to someone. So good!

Should have been a red throwback to Necropotence! "Whenever a sorcery or instant you control deals damage, discard your hand, then draw that many cards"? That could have been cool.
