A very, very, VERY nasty card with Thorn Elemental.

So nasty... even if the creature bites the dust, he still hits the player for whatever he's got.

At a cost of only 1RG, this thing has the potential to be a game winner, and effectively inflicts double damage if unblocked. Throw this on a creature with double strike and watch your opponent die very, very quickly.

Deus of Calamity loves this - even if he's chump blocked, this lets him do the full 6 required to destroy a land. If he isn't blocked? Goodbye two lands!

Use with Mossbridge Troll. That is all.

if you've got the mana, makes your ball lightnings and groundbreakers hurt more

i just realized, with lifelink would this card steal you 2x the life?

This card can NUKE opponents. This is a very welcome sight when one of my two of these comes up in my giant creature deck. Threw that on a 14/14 with trample (Thanks Mayeal's Aria!), and my opponent would have been defeated in one hit if he wasn't able to convince me at the time that deathtouch stops trample (being instakiled and all).

8O unbelievably useful, even for just R/G decks... try Goblin Lackey and Warren Instigator, or maybe Deus of Calamity or Shoker/Barbed Shocker if you like your combos like i like my coffee... STRONG

@ orisiti: Yes, if you've equipped a creature with multiple copies of Mage Slayer, they will each trigger on attack.
Mage Slayer is awesome because it makes your creatures deal damage through blockers. If Wall of Denial is stopping your RG aggro deck dead in its tracks, you should consider using this to help you bash through.
Also, Mage Slayer makes for tons of fun when equipped to a creature with Double Strike - giving creatures like Marisi's Twinclaws "Triple Strike" is really devastating if you pump them with Colossal Might or the like :D
