1 Mana, Tap Symbol: Copy target triggered ability you control. You may choose new targets for the copy. (A triggered ability uses the words “when”, “whenever” or “at”.)

Its tines cannot be rung by mere physical force. Only magic of great power can start its eldritch resonance.



  • Bryan Johnson

    Betcha the design name for this was “Tuning Fork”. Creative saw it, thought it was funny, and just ran with it.

  • BeenPlayingForMonths

    Is this the first card to copy triggered abilities!?

    • Xero

      Don’t strain your brain too hard about the possibilities of this card. ;)

  • Rollover

    This card can be broken very easily I love it

  • Jordan

    This card is easily broken within the same set. Pair this with the new green hydra for instant 16/16.

    • Zombie

      *Watches you go through the motions as you build up a 16/16 Hydra.*

      *Slowly inches Doom Blade across the table towards your Kalonian Hydra*

      *Passes you the slip to sign*

      • Sabisent

        I didn’t take you for the ‘dies to doomblade’ type.

        • Zombie

          I’m more the “Heh, nice fatty. *Insert Instant- Speed removal here*” type. Doom Blade is the the most efficient from what we’ve seen from M14 thus far.

          • Sabisent

            *Fling*
            I think it is a shame that they are reprinting Doom Blade over Murder. Doom Blade is probably a better card from a tournament perspective, but Murder is just so…. beautiful.

          • Zombie

            Murder kills more things, Doom Blade does it faster and it’s easier to cast.

            It’s more preference, honestly. If your deck is slow, manipulates mana, or the metagame you play in has numerous black creaturs, then Murder is the stronger choice. If you just want Instant- speed spot removal to take care of early problem drops while still being able to contend with Murder late game against any deck that isn’t heavy on Black creatures, then Doom Blade is the better option.

          • Fbn Dnl Schlr

            I’d take Go for the Throat over both.

          • Zombie

            Go for the Throat’s balance was that it existed in an Artifact Creature- heavy enviornment. If it existed today, it would be as effective as Murder, but cheaper. It would be TOO good. Doom Blade is still strong enough to be played in Modern, and now it exists in Standard again. I’m completely fine with it.

      • richardshort2001

        *cast sheltering word*
        *makes changes to slip*
        *Signs slip*

        See how ridiculous that seems?

        • Zombie

          Considering Doom Blade is actually a viable Constructed card for spot removal, and the only Sheltering Word I’ve ever seen played was at a Sealed event by a 10 year old, no, Doom Blade doesn’t seem ridiculous.

          • richardshort2001

            Yeah cause decks that rely on one for one removal in a format filled with “When this creature dies” triggered abilities have been dominating the meta game.

          • richardshort2001

            Also, June 30th TCG Silver tournament 2 of the top 4 decks main decked Ranger’s Guile which would have, more or less, the same result.

  • CodyGozRawr

    Master Biomancer? Progenitor Mimic? New Hydra Guy? Wow im going to love M14

  • Matt Abraham

    for only 2 mana, yes please!!!

  • richardshort2001

    Azor’s Elecutors, Boros Reckoner, Cathar’s Crusade, Craterhoof Behemoth, Detention Sphere, Dungeon Geists, Dying Wish, Firemane Angel, Geist of Saint Traft, Gutter Grime, Huntmaster of the Fells, Kessig Cagebreakers, Kessig Malcontents, Lord of the Void, Mirko Vosk, Oblivion Ring, Obzedat, Renegade Krasis, Rubblebelt Raiders, Ruric Thar, Stuffy Doll, Tajic, Thragtusk, Trepanation Blade, Urbis Protector, Utvara Hellkite, Voice of Resurgence, Vizkopa Guildmage (does that work?), Wild Beastmaster (Amazing with some help), Worldspine Wurm.

    Those cards all just got a lot better, and I didn’t even look at other M14 cards.

    • Olivia Volderen’s lover

      Ruric Thar Especially

  • Sean Mclorie

    wow edh is going to love you

  • famguy3

    Oblivion ring just got worse

    • famguy3

        • famguy3

          and the titans

          • famguy3

            and snapcaster mage

          • famguy3

            and boros reckoner

  • Mike Thomas

    This plus Elite Archanist – What happens?

    • Jace Rocks

      Elite Archanist’s abiltity is an activated ability not triggered so……..nothing

      • Mike Thomas

        I mean the trigger of it entering the battlefield.

        • Eric

          You would then be given the opportunity to exile another instant with Elite Arcanist. I would assume you could then cast either with its activated ability, but it’s worded weirdly so I could be wrong.

  • Matt Stone

    Probably going to have a laugh with this in Kaalia.

    • Wise

      I agree, but unfortunately, this doesn’t make iona better, in case you were wondering. Using the word “as” instead of “when” just saved your opponents from not being able to cast TWO colors thus breaking her even more. Shame…

  • Matt86

    Cool, something for my Riku copy EDH that can actually copy riku’s copy-ability… i like

  • Fbn Dnl Schlr

    This card is going to cause troubles for German translators. Here every wording is overextended and not nearly as precise at it should be.
