@car2n
"Sacrifice" is not the same as "dying" in the same way that a "Square" is not the same as a "Rectangle."
However, one implies the other, hence your 0.5/5 rating (and not just from me at the time of posting).

@Trygon_Predator, Continue
Somehow I doubt that this will be banned in Commander.
Somewhat due to the fact that it is not degenerate in any way.
But mostly because of the many many many many ma... (see all)

A 10/10 for 8 is just about on curve; compare Colossus of Akros, for example. That ability though? Holy crap. A reset button on a creature... never thought I'd see that. I agree with Trygon; expect Atlas here to get banned in EDH almost instantly.

@car2n: No, "destroy" and "sacrifice" are not the same thing. A creature dies when it is sacrificed, but it is not destroyed when it is sacrificed.

@orzhov20: I would table flip two lines into that crappy song. Only little kids need sound effects during a game.

I'm really upset that red's mythic is Prophetic Flamespeaker instead of this. Yeah, the flamespeaker is good-but that's it. Its a hyperefficient low cost card meant for tournament play with no flavor whatsoever-exactly what mythic shouldn't be. This, on the other hand, is Atlas! Its a 10/10! It holds up the entire world! It has "destroy all permanents" written on it! And yet its not a mythic.

@Syrtrees and anyone else disagreeing with that this should be mythic, the following is an article by Mark Rosewater on, among other things, the mythic rarity:

http://www.wizards.com/Magic/Magazine/Article.aspx?x=mtgcom%2Fdaily%2Fmr334

"This now leads us to the next question: How are cards split between rare and mythic rare? Or more to the point, what kind of cards are going to become mythic rares? We want the flavor of mythic rare to be something that feels very special and unique. Generally speaking we expect that to mean cards like Planeswalkers, most legends, and epic-f... (see all)

As useless as this card is for standard, this should have been the red mythic and not prophetic flamespeaker.

Combo with Tormented Thoughts for probably the most ineffective combo in the game...

Oh well, at least the look on your opponent's face is worth it.

A bit weird if you have two on the battlefield and one of them dies. What's the other one, invisible?

The sky falls pretty fast with Rakdos's help.

bolasevilplan, I actually want to pull this and the card you mentioned at the prerelease. not because of the ineffective combo, but because of this:

load up a song on your phone (a specific song)
before the combo, play the song

"This is the end
Hold your breath and count to ten
Feel the earth move and then
Hear my heart burst again"

do the combo when this part comes

"For this is the end
I've drowned and dreamt this moment
So overdue I owe them
Swept away, I'm stolen"

and then at the end step trigger:

"Let the sky fall
When it crumbles
We will stand tall
Face it all together

Let the sky fall
When it crumbles
We will stand tall
Face it all together
At skyfall
That skyfall"

you should just win the game for epicness
