Bile Blight is one of the newest "Magic: The Gathering" cards revealed today Jan. 16, 2014 in an article by Jacob Van Lunen on This latest "Born of the Gods" spoiler card is a powerful uncommon black instant removal spell with the potential to take out multiple threats your adversary controls.

Bile Blight - BB
Instant (Uncommon)
Target creature and all other creatures with the same name as that creature get -3/-3 until end of turn.
Not an arrow loosed, javelin thrown, nor sword raised. None were needed.

Lunen points out that Bile Blight is deadly efficient against players attacking with multiple Mutavaults or if you find yourself facing a horde of Pack Rat tokens. Although Bile Blight won't always have the devastating impact that Maelstrom Pulse can, it'll efficiently knock out a swarm of tokens created by Abhorrent Overlord, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Ajani, Caller of the Pride, or Master of Waves.

While Ultimate Price and Doom Blade can deal with larger threats like Kalonian Hydra or Forgestoker Dragon, each card has a color restriction on what they can target whereas Bile Blight doesn't. It's important to note that because Bile Blight says "all other creatures with the same name" that you'll need to be careful how you use it in mirror matches, otherwise you could end up destroying your own creatures.

Between Bile Blight and Drown in Sorrow black players have some deadly new removal spells to play with when "Born of the Gods" hits store shelves.

How will you use Bile Blight?
