  • Dr. Burn Crow

    This is unreal. Just silly.

    • Zombie

      It’s appropriately costed, and won’t make waves pretty much anywhere but EDH. It might be a pretty decent value card in Standard, but I doubt it.

      But it’s still a correctly designed “Punisher” card. Giving your opponent two bad options of relatively equal weight is reminiscent of Vexing Devil.

      However, what makes Vexing Devil basically the epitome of the “Punisher” card design, and where this is severely lacking, is being aggressively undercosted, ensuring that your opponent is limited to your two bad options you give them, rather than them having access to other options later in the game when they’ve already developed their board state.

      And… that’s pretty much why no Punisher card will ever reach the levels of Vexing Devil ever again.

      I can’t see this surviving many Censors, tbh.

      • Dr. Burn Crow

        I pretty much just run EDH, so this is perfect for my purposes.

  • Frankthetank

    this goes infinite with a Charmbreaker Devils, a Part the Waterveil in your graveyard (or any other take an extra turn spell) and no other instant or sorceries in your graveyard, and an opponent without blockers. Infinite turn FTW!!!!

    • Dr. Burn Crow

      Shhhhhhh, your ruining my schemes!

    • Party Wolf

      Except that part the waterveil gets exiled when cast, but yeah it works with most of the older ones

    • John Bain

      Even better, giving him unblockable (ala rogue’s passage) and cast seize the day or similar.

      • potatogod442

        Whispersilk Cloak?

        • Frankthetank

          No, Give it Skulk with Skeleton Key. Almost unblockable FTW!!!!!

  • Shagoth

    Zombie Jackal Cleric. Red. Okay then.
    I like the effect, we haven’t really had any instant/sorcery versions of quicksilver amulet, and I think it will be weaker than putting Ulamog into play in standard right now, but I believe this is better than the champion of Rhonas and is pretty good. Definitely nice to have a decent creature in terms of beatings and defense in a spellslinger EDH deck.

  • Zombie

    This is how you do a Punisher mechanic card.

    Both options are equally bad for your opponent in most cases.
    But in EDH this could just drop a massive bomb spell Turn 5.

    • MTG fan

      Love this card! I want this so badly!

  • Tezzybros

    ok. sure. its a ok ability for RAMAZ, but for nicol?… not really

    • Dr. Burn Crow

      It summons giant monsters?
      This is a Tibalt card, amigo.

      • Tezzybros

        ramaz the shamanistic planeswalker without a card YET. That guy I meant to say.

        • Dr. Burn Crow

          I know of Ramaz, I just thought flavorwise he was more into creatures than spellslinging. I’d love it if he made an appearance, though.

  • ChaosEngineer

    Welcome back to the jank brewing table Worldfire. We are going to have some fun.

  • Arcus Diabolus

    This is RUUUDE

  • Julna Buras

    Um, rude.

  • PrissyRose



  • Dragoncastermaster

    i love cards that offer a terrible choice to your opponent! this will be fun very fun

  • CnBCustoms

    This absolutely belongs in my Mizzix storm EDH deck.

    • Friedrich

      A 4-Mana creature without Haste? Oo Isn’t that a bit slow for Storm?

      • TogetherAlone

        Not in Commander. Also this can start your storm combo letting you cast your most expensive spell first

      • CnBCustoms

        It’s a multiplayer deck that kind of goes off out of nowhere. In my playgroup, slow works fine as it’s generally non-competitive. Besides, how quick do you really need to be in Commander?

  • Edwin Marín Castro

    Just when you were thinking that Cruel Ultimatum deck didn’t need an upgrade.

  • Somebodyy

    Thoughts on the lore behind this? I was thinking that maybe Nicol Bolas turns some into intelligent zombies to help kill the rest.

  • Deadly Berry

    Jeleva accepts this offering. On a side note, nobody has commented on the Zombie subtype, on a mono Red creature.

    • Caleb Martin

      It’s only happened once before. Also, I’m super hyped for zombie tribal in every color! (Don’t take this away from me)

      • Zombie

        5 color Karona allies replaced by Karona Zombies.

        I’m sold

  • Krackin Lackin

    Well this may fix my Breaking // Entering shell.

  • Happy The Cat

    Grumble grumble… well this doesn’t feel like another time when wizards is printing specific cards to make a new meta deck.
    Easy slots for edh. Probably won’t see modern since four is kinda late for a red 1/4, even with that keyword.

  • Chaospyke

    Really wish Skulk had made a bigger splash now…

  • xxxx

    It has 3 creature types O.o

  • Bige Boiy

    fantastic fit in any zombie, jackal or cleric tribal deck that wants to cast huge instants or sorceries

    • Dr. Burn Crow

      You’re not incorrect.

    • Zombie

      Which almost none of them actually want to do outside durdle-mode casual EDH.

      This won’t be played in Zombie tribal. It’s too fat, it’s Red, and Zombie tribal almost never plays huge spells that aren’t X-spells.

      This is more a fit for something like Melek, Izzet Paragon EDH if anything. Huge spells that get stuck in your hand get played with this for free.

      • Bige Boiy

        was a joke, mate

        • Zombie

          You say that, but then there’s that one twelve year old who just whipped his foil Rooftop Storm out of his dusty tradebinder in a fit of excitement.

          • Sylvio

            Ah yes, the true spirit of the format in truth.

  • Blahblahblahbla

    I’m envisioning a package to go with this like: Approach of the Second Sun, Behold the Beyond, Secret Salvage, Yahenni’s Expertise, Cut/Ribbons, Fatal Push, Nahiri’s Wrath, Abrade, Never/Return.

  • Caleb Martin

    The Second mono-red zombie!

  • Guest

    With the proper support, I think this card could break open Dragonstorm in Modern again.
    CMC 4 is a little tough, but if you can get this guy to stick, and combo Distortion Strike, Insult, Swing, Dragonstorm, fetch Bogardan Hellkite x2 + 1 other, that wracks up 20 damage pretty easily.

  • Aarhg

    I could actually maybe put this in a Wort, the Raidmother EDH deck. Maybe.

    Cheating out big spells is always pretty rad.

  • Derek Niles

    Would this be too good if it had haste?

    • Happy The Cat

      well, it’s red, so it’s not like it’s hard to give it haste.

    • Random Guy

      No. It might win a few draft games, but that’s it.

      If your opponent has a reasonable number of creatures this is just 4 cmc to burn 4, which is very bad. If they don’t then it’s a good combo piece, but unreliable combos are not worth it.

      • galen150

        this card is pretty good….. in a jeskai or grixis control shell this can be really powerful

        • Random Guy

          If you can remove all their creatures and they can’t remove yours yes. But any threat would win for you in that case.

          Otherwise, no, it’s burn 4 for 4 cmc conditionally. I guess if you have Slip through Space or smth?
