New Card - Forge Devil

Finally! The 11th and final spoiled Dark Ascension card from an anonymous source:


First Impression

Good, but not excellent. It's the type of creature that's designed specifically for any Red Deck Wins deck. It's a 1/1 creature for one mana that can act as spot removal. But I say "good, but not excellent" for one very important reason: It's "enters the battlefield" ability is not a "may" ability!

This means that if you cast a Forge Devil when no other creature on the battlefield, it'll immediately destroy itself with its own ability. This is especially troublesome because it's a 1/1 creature for one mana that wants to be cast on the first turn. And if you go first, it suddenly becomes much less impressive.

(a.k.a. Good, but not excellent.)


Deck Ideas

Like I said above, this creature wants to be in any mono red deck that has a perfect aggro ramp. These decks want to kill their opponent as fast as humanly possible and because of this, the 1 damage to yourself is completely shrugged off. The 1 damage is insignificant.
