Sign Of The Apocalypse
So let's give it up for:
This spell just could be one of the best Fire cards of its kind. It allows you to destroy all of your opponent's creatures with 8000 power or less. Since many good normal creatures, Evolution creatures, and even a small percentage of Very and Super Rares have this strength, this can decimate your opponent. This card will destroy all but a few super-poweful blockers, and can reduce an enemy army of creatures to shreds.
It works best in two kinds of disruptive Fire decks. The first is the Fire and Darkness destruction kind. Aside from old standard shadowy spells like Death Smoke and Terror Pit, Apocalypse Vise can provide a great late-game sweep to let your attacking creatures deliver the finishing blows unblocked. In the other kind, the Fire and Nature mana masher, it is used to prevent enemy creatures from getting in your hair, while other Fire spells, such as the equally pandemonium-causing Catacylsmic Eruption (and its smaller, Nature version, Mana Crisis) will destroy all of your opponent's mana. That way, they cannot summon other creatures to replace the ones removed by Apocalypse Vise. Sure, it doesn't destroy all enemies, but that's what Invincible Abyss is for.
Ballom's Rating: 5/5. While a tad expensive, Apocalyse Vise is an awesome card, and fun to use.
