I have been killed by this card before.

To add insult to injury, my only creature was a Wurmcoil Token.

This card is very nice in my morbid deck, especially when dealing with hexproof cards like the recent annoying invisible stalker

Great way to take down Darksteel Myr/Sentinel/Colossus.

Lovely card - so simple and effective.

Personally, I prefer this over Diabolic Edict, mostly because of the price tag.

Also, because in every deck I put it in, is either running Mono-Black, or mostly black splashing other colors. The one extra black requirement isn't that extreme.

The one life loss is irrelevant most of the time, but I like that it's not just a reprint.

@ subtle kay: Doom blade can be better in some situations because with this, you can't choose what creature the opponent sacrifices.

Ya, this card is great! Definitely comes in handy.

That's a nice creature you just cast. Kill it for me would you?

Adding color weight to diabolical edict drops the rating down a half star apparently..

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
