Banewasp Affliction

Unfortunately, this card doesn't really have a place in most decks I can dream up, unless they revolve around making your opponent's creatures really strong and then destroying them. (Actually, now I think about it, that might be pretty funny...) Until then, this card will probably have to stay in everyone's "Trade Binder o' Cool Art."

I'd like to know why this card wasn't in Planar Chaos, as it's functionally identical to the Limited Edition's Creature Bond except that it's black.

Constructed: 1/5

Banewasp Affliction


Constructed: Needs creature kill to be of any use. Not seeing it happen in any competive format.


Casual: Nice card to play around with. But it takes a lot of work to get the best result with it. You have to wait for their big creature and then have a way of killing it.


Limited: Would not pick this card, maybe if it was the only black card and the others were not as great.


Overall, not the badest card in Shards, but it is at the bottom of the list. Use it for the fun effect.


Constructed: 2

Casual: 3

Limited: 2

Enchantment - Aura
Enchant creature
When enchanted creature is put into a graveyard, that creature's controller loses life equal to its toughness.

Terrible. A) If your in black you have better ways of making your opponent lose life. B) If your opponent is winning when you play this its not going to help you get back in the game C) If your winning its a just a win-more card
