This card is epic. The old-school way to play it was to combo it with a wall, swing a few times with a hard-to-block creature (typically flying) and then chip away your opponent's health and clear the board with Pestilence. I might just make such a deck right now, in fact!

Excellent card to take out massive number of 1/1s and 2/2s. Dark Ritual makes this easy to get out and do damage early.

this in a combo with boomerang and death pits of rath is amazing. You play this with deathpits out and then use boomerang to return your big heavy-hitter to your hand to rampage the next turn.

A annoying card, but I do use it with Sprouting Phytohydra.

not a bad card for breaking down monster combo decks like elfs or clerics which are commonly small it helps to control the numbers and reduce their bonuses

does anyone know: would a mishra's factory (which is a creature until end of turn,) keep pestilence alive?

although the original version's art leaves nothing to be desired and is entirely satisfactory, i prefer the 'urza's saga' version as the best of the many sets. enjoy!
