With Rivals of Ixalan having been released last month, players have had time to playtest new cards and find out what they like. This card, after this review, will be added to your list if it isn’t already there.

This card is a perfect description of how black operates and interacts with the board. Tetzimoc Primal Death has an ability that allows you to destroy a creature or creatures your opponent controls whenever you cast it.

Now for the format, this card fits best in is probably only going to be constructed formats. This is because to utilize this card to its fullest it needs to be in your hand, which in EDH your commander doesn’t start out in your hand. Now if it wasn’t your commander that would be a different situation.

Once this card is in your hand, you get to pay one black, reveal it, and then put a prey counter on a target creature. Once you then summon Tetzimoc, you destroy all creatures that had prey counters on them. You also can do it more than once each turn; the card doesn’t state you can only do it once each turn.

The ability to cheaply destroy creatures, while also dropping a 6/6 with deathtouch is huge. Also, it would be in your best interest to make this the highest casting card in your deck. You will even be able to keep your opponent at bay from summoning his or her bomb rare they have. They aren’t going to want to cast it, have you put a prey counter on it, then kill it.
