Before there was Damnation, there was Infest. Don't let the fact that we recently saw the best black mass removal spell that will ever exist fool you into thinking that other black mass removal spells are bad. Sure, Infest is unimpressive against many green decks or anything else that can muster three toughness, but it comes one turn earlier, affects Gaddock Teeg and indestructible creatures, doesn't invalidate any of your own Korlash-style heavy hitters who may already be on the field, and costs about $17 less.

Constructed: Reprints always find there way back into current decks. Can slow down Kithkin or any other small weenie decks. Helps deal with creatures with shroud also.


Casual: Not going to see much play. You either have a lot of small creatures but most of the time they are the big fatties.


Limited: Great card to pick if you are heavy into black. Hard to splash with the double black. Can really help at the right time.


Overall a good reprint. Not as exciting as some other reprints.

All creatures get -2/-2 until end of turn.
Nice card all round but right now there's simply better options. In standard you've got fire spout and elsewhere damnation outshines it by far. In limited however its quite a nice card. A lot of the creatures in ALA have a fairly small toughness so this can end up taking out quite a chunk of the board.
