everything dies to removal...that's why we call it removal. it removes things


I fullheartedly agree. This card makes infect stupid broken with no way to counter it but to waste a removal spell, and chances are if they're running a proper black deck they'll just disentomb him or something and he'll be right back on the field.

He is the face of your nightmares.You thought you had different nightmares? Think again. Hand of the Praetors gets so much hate from non-poison player that if all the hate were concentrated, it would cause every copy of HotP to ignite, leaving us infect deck players lordless. As it is, bow down to your overlord, who turns glistener elves into ammunition while laughing at all lifegain decks everywhere. Awesome is not enough for the Hand.

@ Thana: What are you thinking? You don't just toss this bird on the front lines and hide behind him FTW (although you pretty much can sometimes!), you're doing it wrooong! What lord would have your back when you don't have it's? And you're lookin for that kind of love in BLACK of all colors?!? Hahaha imagine that.. You have to protect him ;)

Hahaha @ "It has swamp walk. You have a swamp." Classic!

Perhaps the best thing about him is his ability to give unavoidable poison counters.
+1/+1 is a great thing for evasion like Plague Stinger or Ichorclaw Myr for the "should I block it?" clause,
Not to mention Putrefax and a hasty Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon.
He's an Infect 3/2, which is pretty solid.
But, he shines with his ability to allow you to cast your infect creatures, and give poison even if it's countered, destroyed, exiled, what have you,
That is what makes this guy so damn powerful.

Awkward if your opponent has shroud or hexproof!

@Thanatophagous: Are you suggesting we should use worse cards in our deck so that they aren't hit by removal?

Okay, now this nasty little bugger is cheap ... the infect ability so cruel, which ironically is why I love it so much.

@ Arachnos:

To me, it looks more like a painting by Hieronimus Bosch.
