RCotD #59

Random Card of the Day #59:

Repentance - 2W
Target creature does damage to itself equal to its power.

Initial thoughts:

A white Kiku's Shadow. My friend has a Kiku's Shadow, I find it a very interesting card. I don't like the fact it is sorcery speed, it's not like it would be too ridiculous on instant speed, at least for black. This kind of mechanic exactly doesn't belong in white, so I guess that's why it's overcosted and sorcery speed.

I don't really see this being used over other white spot removals, considering most of them are exile effects. The one that comes to mind is using it on Blightsteel Colossus, but other than that you have to judge what you would want. Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile are some of the best removal in the game, but they have a drawback. It still doesn't get rid of indestructibles without Wither/Infect, but at least it has a place as white spot removal without drawbacks, because basically all the others are conditional like Rebuke or Choking Fumes or overcosted like Divine Verdict.

A decent card but I don't really see it being played a whole lot. 3/5
