New Card - Tragic Slip

The 9th of 11 spoiled Dark Ascension cards from an anonymous source:

First Impression

An excellent piece of removal with the power to take down something as small as Grim Lavamancer as well as something as big as Blightsteel Colossus.

The non-morbid variety may kill less than a Dead Weight, but it somewhat makes up for it seeing that it can be cast at instant speed. And the morbid variety is obviously one of the most efficient pieces of removal in the entire game.

(A "tragic slip" indeed.)

Deck Ideas

When you take all the spoiled cards from the anonymous source and put them all together, maybe a black/white, human/vampire deck isn't too far fetched after all? All I can say for certain is the more broken morbid enabled cards become, the more viable this archetype is going to be. For every playable morbid card Wizards decides to print, the more interested I am in putting together one of these decks myself.

But let's get specific:

When Havengul Lich was first revealed, people wanted to combo it with Heartless Summoning immediately. And I think Tragic Slip is the insane piece of removal that deck needed. Consider the following combination of cards:
  • Havengul Lich
  • Heartless Summoning
  • Snapcaster Mage
  • Tragic Slip
Tragic Slip is going to be huge.
