I've been recommending the Red steal creature spells like Act of Treason . Take away a blocker and gain an attacker for a turn, then sac it to Butcher. It's been fun in sealed so far :-)
I like the token generation synergy with Butcher of the Horde . I'm yet to be sold on Crackling Doom . Three colors for an untargeted removal and 2 damage might start getting tricky, but doesn't seem like a GREAT payoff yet to me. It does have instant speed going for it though so Zurgo Helmsmasher cries to it, and it takes down a bunch of other win cons, but against weenie and other agro, I'd rather have Anger of the Gods Drown in Sorrow or Bile Blight still. I think id even want targeted removal against control. Murderous Cut seems to be mind blowingly good so far. A one B removal in agro is amazing. Bloodsoaked Champion reminds me a lot of Bloodghast and we saw how nicely he works with sacking. Probably not competitive, but all the one turn Red steal creature spells like Act of Treason with The Butcher had me smiling in Limited this weekend. I dig it man!
Eternal Thirst reads: "Whenever a create an opponent controls...". This means that your opponent would have to be controlling the creature when it would die. Since Act of Treason makes you the controller of the creature until the end of the turn, sacrificing it would not trigger Eternal Thirst because it's not under the opponent's control.
I do hope it will trigger, but it does not sound right.
Can someone please clear this up for me?
