I love this card and Diabolic Edict with a passion. 1: It gets around Indestructible and Regenerate. 2: Gets around Shroud and opponent Shroud because you target player and not a creature. 3: It's cost effective being only 2CMC. And 4: It's black, my favorite color :)

If your opponent have a lot of tokens, then save the Edict for later. You should clean the tokens with Infest/Volcanic Fallout/or even Wrath of God/Damnation. If the opponent can have amount of tokens by using Bitter Blossom or other spells, then you has enough mana to clean them up! Chainer Edict is great card!

Goes great with Diabolic Edict, Cruel Edict, and Innocent Blood. Chainer's Edict is available two times for just one card, so that's basically 4 backup removal spells. These were awesome in Torment.

Another case of some people on this site just not getting it.

This card is fantastic.

All the talk about Diabolic Edict...you can't use D-E in extended anymore thus C-E becomes the card of choice of this type of creature killer. If you aren't letting your opponent get ahead of you on creatures and they only have one out, this is a cheap and easy kill so you can run your hyp or cutpurse (or in my case, Raven Guild Master) across to swing. And the flashback cost, while kind of high, is attainable late in the game so having four of these in your deck makes for some wonderful creature control.

For those wanting to be able to target something...try last gasp...but you better hope the creature you need to kill isn't very tough or you will be SOL. C-E kills no matter what the toughness.

This is one of the best cards made today. Seriously tthis with the other edicts and some simple from a graveyard to play card and poof you have a whole lot of your opponets creatures....SPOON!!!!! What makes this card better than the other edicts is the flash back. Sure it is spendy but with a sol ribng or a dark ritual you right there. So seriously shush about it having an expensive flashback. Should not matter but if you need it it is nice to have ..........onward!!!!

5 stars to diabolic edict and 5 stars to chainer's edict.

Chainer's edict has flashback.
Diabolic edict is an instant.

Excellent for removing Protection from Black creatures, as the card targets the PLAYER not the creature

Sure people think diabolic edict is better, and it probably is, but NOT in Type 2. Mono-black control decks reign supreme ever since legions, an ALL-CREATURE set, came out about a month ago. Who cares if it can't target a creature, if your smart, it will kill an UN-targetable creature. I wonder how that works... Hmmm. And by the way, threshold decks suck ever since something called Haunting Echoes hit the scene. Black Rules, and will rule, always...

This card has saved me countless times. why do people like dibolic edict better? just because its an instant? so what? this card can flashback later in the game. you can kill 8 creatures, if you use them to the maximum. that's twice more than diabolic edict.

This card is totally awesome. The most powerful current decks all revolve around a creature (either the Monger or Psycatog). This is a cheep and efficient way to kill either, and the fact that it flashes back late came to kill another one is even better. If you're running black, you've got no business not running this card.

The "Edict" spells are awesome because they force a sacrifice. This is good because it can kill indestructible creatures and creatures with regeneration. Other than that, it's awesome because it fits black's flavor of evil, letting them choose which of their trusty companions who must sacrifice itself in order to save the others.

The reason why some people think this is bad, is because you don't get to choose which creature dies. I understand why many people may have this opinion, but on the other hand, this is a cheap spell that can kill every... single... creature... in... the... game..!
If you use it wisely, this spell can take down Darksteel Colossus and even Progenitus, which would normally be near-impossible to take down. It is especially delightful when your opponent only has two very strong creatures on the battlefield, and he/she then has to choose between the two of them.

Keep in mind that Edicts are best used in black decks alongside other targeted removal, such as Doom Blade and Terror, or board sweepers such as Mutilate and Damnation. This is because 99% of the time you'll want your opponent to only control 1 creature when you cast an Edict to make sure that it kills the creature that you want it to kill.
Chainer's Edict is especially good because it has Flashback. Although the Flashback cost is very expensive, it can still play an important role during late game. In the abstract, having 4 Chainer's Edict in your deck ~ corresponds with having 8 regular Edicts in your deck, thus saving you 4 deck slots that can be used on more removal or whatever you see fit. Although the Flashback cost IS situational, you'll sometimes be glad it's there.

The card is not meant to be a target removal spell. This is perfect as a backup to a mass removal spell. For example, you Wrath of God, and nothing is left. The drop a Troll Ascetic, now you are toast. But wait! You have a Chainer's Edict, a perfect way to get rid of that nasty troll.

I prefer Terror over this.

this is a must for a black deck playing type 2, depending on what type of deck you have, but diabolic edict is the real thing.

Its a quality card, but its not an instant like diabolic edict, and somtimes thats a huge difference. 7 is also far too much for flashback, you could cast a huge card for that cost. I like the picture though

In all honesty, this was one of my favorite cards until i came across Innocent Blood. This card is definitely better when they have creatures out and so do you, not to mention it has a flashback. This card is definitely better, but the strategic opportunities that Innocent Blood brings, I honestly thin this card could get a lot less popular.

this card isn't that great and the person in review 1 is an idiot when u use flashback you also remove it so it won't get you any closer to threshold and diabolic edict i'm pretty sure is an instant for the same cost
