The only thing acceptable about Crackling Doom was the extremely niche CC.
Quote from Tormented »I see this card and it just feels like a trap - much like vona's hunger. In standard at 3 mana you should be able to choose the threat murderous rider. In commander, where that each opponent part is relevant - it is too easy to cast that you cast it at the wrong time. What makes cackling doom so good is actually that it isn't so good - but the casting cost is so awkward that you develop a memory of "If only I had kept a red/black/white mana open - I could have had an amazing cackling doom", or you remember how good it was that game that you cast it, but forget that when you finally had the right mana and a decent opportunity to play it, you cast it turn 6, it was good, when it could have just as easily been a ruinous ultimatum and been amazing.
