Last Laugh definitely qualifies as a bomb for Limited.  Keep your fingers crossed for this bad boy while opening your packs this pre-release weekend!  =)

Once again, this card proves my point that Torment is all about finding ways to put cards into the graveyard.  Time to start doing your homework looking for existing cards that have synergy with this mechanic!

This is an unworthy Pestilence.  It has little play value when compared to
the many other black cards in Torment that are just better than this.  Heck,
many Odyssey black cards are better than this.  Still, it can be mass board
clearing, and like many rares, this will be broken, most likely by me.  I
give Last Laugh brownie points for having a cool name though, so it gets a
3.  Actually, it's deserving of it, because i can for see this card just
being rude, but more often stupid.

Breakable with Ichorid, now that I think about it (Ichorid attacks for 3,
and sacs for 1 to everything because of Last Laugh).  Stupid, but

In limited, there's a saying that applies to this card - "Board clearer's
are good."  Yes, this ranks up there in the first pick column, but
unfortunately, I don't think it will go any later than 4th, because it is
mass removal, but the problem with it is that a perminant has to hit the
graveyard first, and unless you have a way to sac lands every turn, or have
lots of non 1/1 or 2/1 creatures.  So, since it is questionable mass
removal, I give it a 4.5, it gets docked an extra .5 of a point because you
need to lose perminants for it to be any good.

One last comment about this card: "Don't accept cheap knock offs, ask for
the real thing."


I'm sure there are combos to make this work - and I definitely see chain events happening - but because of the pestilence effect (you and your creatures) this makes this a little too dangerous for anything but fun decks.

Last Laugh
This card appears interesting when you first look at it. However, I have really not thought of a viable deck idea featuring this card. It's casting cost is to high to fit into a speedy creature rush deck and the fact that both people get damaged make it bad in slower control type decks. I guess it's just a very poor version of pestilence.
The best thing about this card is that it has a cool name.
Rating-Constructed 1.5 Limited-1.5
WOTC batting average for the week-2 hits/5 at bats=.400 Overall a decent week.



Last Laugh?  What's funny about it?  Maybe the limited
uses for this card, but that's about it.  The best use
I can find for it in standard is to change your Braids
into a pinging nightmare, dealing a point of damage
during each player's upkeep. 
I'm not sure this card has a very big influence in
limited, either.  My advice, trade these to people who
play in group games.

Constructed Rating: 1
Limited Rating: 1 (possibly with potential)


Ya know.  Sometimes there are just some cards you look at and know there has to be a way to make them work.  This is one of those cards.  The problem with it though, is that it doesn't seem to work well as an additive to a deck.  It looks as though it will have to be an important part to a deck that it is played in.

In limited I think this card has potential.  It's not huge, but can be good enough to a few creatures out the way, depending on what your opponent has, to come over for the win.  

Nevertheless, this card is intriguing.

Constructed: 3.1
Limited: 3


Last Laugh is funny.  Not funny hah-hah but funny stupid.  In group games
this is very good.  In normal Constructed and in Limited, I don't see it
being very good.  It MIGHT be good, but I doubt it.  2's for both.
