    The closest parallel to this card ever printed is certainly Remand

    card is good, but Remand is still the better one, IMO

    so.... what happens with damage dealt after the dude I redirected the damage to dies?

    I mean, if someone attacks me with a 3/3 double striker.
    I let it through and cast this pointing to a 1/1.

    what happens with the second damage part from the double striker?
    is the damage dealt normally to me because there´s no more 1/1 to soak it or it would try to deal de damage to that 1/1 and "fizzle"?

    OH MY GOD.

    Tron Players Rejoice?

    hehe

    I mean, it´s even possible to chain it into itself in a tron deck

    cast it for 12 mana, untap 5 tron lands, draw 10, if another copy is at hand, cast it again for the lulz, untap again.
    do whatever you want.

    I see The Elderspell and even if it's ridiculously broken, I don't care....
    I just go ahead thinking about the crazy jankyness you can achieve with it.

    1: Have any gideon in play.
    2: target him with Spark Double
    3: transform the copy to a creature and target it with Mirrorweave
    4: cast The Elderspell and laugh like a madman.

    jankyness for everyone.

    Limited powerhouse, constructed garbage.

    "I want to kill a dude and ramp my mana for 4 mana" said no constructed player ever.

    I mean, reactive ramp spell is damn weird, goes completely against the nature of the effect.... and a 4 mana removal is plain bad.

    damn, this dude is great.

    even at 1/1.....
    something as simple as attack => unblocked => Blood lust => Fling = 15 damage to the dome.

    not very.....
    Modern already has Damnation, a Black Day of Judgement is FAR more likely on a standard legal set than in this.
    But Damnation is, as you've pointed out, already Modern legal. It also happens to be in desperate need of a reprint due to its persistently high price tag. However, cards that are currently Modern legal are the only cards that we know WON'T be in Modern Horizons.

    Meanwhile, people have been asking for a black Day of Judgment ever since DoJ got printed. There're two reasons it's never seen print in standard: it's just always been too powerful, or it would have been too much to have both black DoJ and white DoJ. Seeing how white sweepers always come first, black DoJ just never got its chance before standard dropped unconditional 4cmc sweepers.

    It's true that Kaya's Wrath exists, but WWBB is a long way from 2BB. I think it's very unlikely that we see a sweeper with the latter mana cost in standard any time soon.

    Modern Horizons, however, seems like the perfect opportunity to finally deliver on the concept. Damnation already exists, so printing a strictly worse option obviously wouldn't break Modern, it would just provide a budget option for players who need a monoblack sweeper effect. MH will evidently have a generally higher power level than a standard set, so it doesn't need to worry about having a powerful sweeper either.

    If MH COULD reprint Modern legal cards, I would assume that they'd just reprint Damnation before designing a new card. But given that Modern reprints are out, a new black DoJ seems like a shoo-in.


    even though I agree with you.
    I still think a Black DoJ would be a lot more possible on a standard legal set, mainly because a Black DoJ on a "Modern Masters" type of set wouldn't be that much of a hype card, as Damnation is already a thing.

    I just think that Black won't be getting any unconditional mass remove spells on this set and that's all.

    If they really need more mass removal, they could print something like Toxic Deluge, for example

    How likely is it that we finally get our black Day of Judgment in this set?

    the biggest weakness of this card is that he'll read: "1B 1/2 Dies" no matter what deck he's used on.

    still, REALLY powerful magic card if you somehow manage to keep him alive.

    Wizard's Lightning prevents this from seeing Constructed, but still a fantastic card. Arena Pauper players will surely love this.


    Not exactly... Rakdos based aggro wont really have enough wizards to meet that cost reduction... But htis can be a 1 mana, 3 damage with many of Rakdos's cards.. like that demon, the acrobat, and the new 2 drop that shocks for 2 if you sac a creature on your upkeep... that is potentially 5 damage turn 3 without even attacking...
    I still don't see Rakdos-based Aggro being any better than Boros or mono-Red. Red's premium one-drop in Standard is still Ghitu Lavarunner so the Wizard clause is not much of an issue while Skewer the Critics is kinda bad for dealing with blockers.

    Of course, Modern/Legacy is a different beast, so maybe I should rephrase "seeing Constructed" to "seeing Standard", but still.


    not sure what you meant there, but this will absolutely see play in both legacy and modern burn decks.
    ignore my message if that's what you meant. lol.

    This is a good magic card.

    will see standard play, it's interesting enough to play on kitchen table, is a limited bomb....
    great card is great.
    this is what happens when you design good cards, not those "might be alright on sealed" atrocities.. lol.

    Hmmmmmm don't know what to think of this.

    effects are fine, they really are.
    but 6 mana is a ton.
