Opponent has two creatures. You hit them with Tribute to Hunger / Chainer's Edict / Cruel Edict / Consuming Vapors / Diabolic Edict / Geth's Verdict / Gatekeeper of Malakir / Liliana of the Veil . . . see how easy this is? They sacrifice whichever creature they can more easily do without, then you punish them with a Tragic Slip and kill the other one that they didn't sacrifice. Fantastic.

They photoshopped out the banana peel.
Utterly fantastic common, utterly fantastic cost, utterly fantastic morbid effect. Guaranteed overkill if you get it active. Long story short, I love it.

And the Overkill award for Innistrad block goes to...

Even better (or worse, depending on which end you're on), it's cheap enough to imprint an Isochron Scepter with. Add in something like Phyrexian Vault and Breeding Pit, and they're going to have a problem keeping their critters around (at least until they find that Splinter)...

Don't get me wrong, 1 mana for removal that gets around Regeneration and Indestructibility is good. Great, even. But keep in mind that the main anti-removal tech in this set is Undying, and this won't get around that.

Which makes this one of those rare few cards that'll be better outside its Standard than in it.

Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre dies to falling in a grave. wut.

@SquirePath My point is, it's a joke. I'm putting a giant indestructible thing into a human sized grave. Come on, that's at least humorous :V More so considering the Eldrazi are powerful beings that eat entire planes for mana.

... Falling off a boat is equally as silly though.

I don't see how people think the flavour is ridiculous.People are taking the art too literally, it's not falling into a shallow grave that's killing your dude, that's just a nice piece of symbolism. Basically if you slip and fall you'll take a little bit of damage, but if you take a tragic slip off of say a cliff and land on your head, well then you'd have to be pretty badazs to survive.

Necroskitter+this alone won't actually get you the Colossus - this doesn't put any -1/-1 counters on the creature, it simply shrinks them

Gideon Jura should be much more careful now....

I love this card...I played the midnight release vs some snobby person who thought that just because he pulled Elbrus, the Binding Blade and managed to flip the card over, he would win. Well when he attacked I said to him "Ooooh...ummmm...shoot...ummmm...I am going to tap a swamp and kill it with Tragic Slip since you killed one of my creatures....is that okay with you?"

His face was priceless
