A mere two mana to kill a creature is nothing to
laugh at, especially when it eliminates the
possibility of regeneration. My Mire Boa swings
Nonblack and nonartifact are restrictions, but
black kill spells have always had trouble
hitting black creatures and players have
adjusted. Now that Mirrodin is in the past, the
nonartifact clause basically just adds Razormane
Masticore and Phyrexian Ironfoot to the immunity
list, unless some superbaddie Golem starts
tearing up in Lorwyn.
One of the original black removal spells. I feel
this is one of the best removal spells in the
game. Most creatures in the meta game right now
are NOT black so you basically can destroy any
one creature for the cost of 2 at instant speed.
If they are playing a black heavy deck you can
always sideboard it out. Its just too strong of
a spell not to main deck.
Terror's quality has always depended on the
environment it was in. Back when Standard was a
brand new format, it was bad because everyone
ran Knight of Stromgald or Order of Leitbur.
When it came back in Mirrodin, it was bad
because everything was an artifact and
everything that wasn't had shroud (Troll Ascetic
much?). Now that it's back in the Tenth Edition,
it might just be good because Tarmogoyf is green
and Aeon Chronicler is blue. Troll Ascetic still
can't be targeted, though.
In limited, you play this. There aren't too many
relevant things in the Core Set that this can't
Magic Noob in Canada since 2002
It's a 2 mana kill spell! It kills a lot of
stuff, notably Tarmagoyf. Terror is one of the
most efficient cards in killing Tarmagoyf, with
Deathmark and Spell Snare being the most
efficient in Standard. However, Terror kills a
lot of other stuff do so it's worth considering.
There are next to no good artifact creatures in
Standard so it's way better than Dark Banishing.
It's like Slaughter Pact, except that for paying
mana early, you get a 1 mana discount with no
regeneration. Not a bad deal at all.
In casual, this is still efficient removal.
In limited, a lot of people play black, but
there's still plenty of targets to go around.
