RCotD #106

Random Card of the Day #106:

Torture - B
Enchantment - Aura
Enchant creature
{1}{B}: Put a -1/-1 counter on enchanted creature.

Initial Thoughts:

This is one of those Limited removal cards. In constructed, even though you can slowly take down whatever is a threat, but one of the problems (obviously) is if the creature is not dead, it is still a threat, especially if it has an effect on it.

On the plus side, the -1/-1 counters are instant speed, so at least it gives you something to do with your mana end of turn.

It's a limited removal spell, and I could never see it in a constructed game. This card would be pretty good if it had something like "{2}{B}: Attach Torture to target creature" so it could slowly kill off all of your opponents' creatures even though it's pretty mana intensive. But it doesn't so it's just a card that needs a lot of mana.

2/5. I could see this seeing play in kitchen Magic.
