Stabbing Pain is one of several new Magic: the Gathering cards that are featured in this year’s 2011 Core Set M11.
Stabbing Pain – B
Target creature gets -1/-1 until end of turn. Tap that creature.
M11’s Stabbing Pain is a cute little black common that opens the door for some nifty tricks in limited.
Stabbing Pain is great for taking out small threats like Prodigal Pyromancer and Elite Vanguard that if left unchecked, can inflict some serious damage.
Suppose an opponent blocks your Canyon Minotaur with their Giant Spider. What they thought was a smart block quickly evaporates into a bad situation.
However what may just be the most useful part of Stabbing Pain is that it can be used both defensively and offensively to tap an opponent’s creature – so that they can’t attack you and you may attack them.
Stabbing Pain is featured in the Magic: the Gathering 2011 Core Set Blades of Victory Intro Pack.
Several other black cards from the Magic: the Gathering 2011 Core Set include Duress, Mind Rot, Assassinate, Nantuko Shade, Demon of Death’s Gate, Dark Tutelage, Viscera Seer, Phylactery Lich, Grave Titan, Necrotic Plague, Nether Horror, Nightwing Shade, Liliana’s Specter, Liliana’s Caress, and Reassembling Skeleton
There are a few new and old cards that have gotten the boot from M11. You can also check out the new M11 artwork, M11 booster packs, M11 Intro Packs, and a new line of Ultra Pro products featuring M11 art.
