CCDD 033111—The Happening

Cool Card Design of the Day
3/31/2011 - This card was also inspired by thinking how the Mirran's could turn the Phyrexian's strengths against themselves, but it also stands on it's own very nicely, so it gets it's own day. The Happening is yet another shake at black mass removal. It seems like a pretty fair card. Slightly better against, say, creatures with infect.

The happening is not the first card of its kind. In fact, it's identical to Wave of Reckoning except for the cost. While Wave of Reckoning has a great reciprocity flavor (that favors more peaceful creatures, no less), when you flavor the same rules text as a horrific wave of self-loathing or suicidal thoughts, it makes more sense in black.
