Sometimes simple is good, and this is definitely one of those times.

One of the best things about Magic is winning in a way that you just now is absurd. It’s about flexing your skill with the game by building a deck to make the most out of a really silly card, and then pulling it off once. It only has to be once too, because that satisfaction will last you a long time.

There are a lot of alternative win conditions in MTG that fall into this category, like, so many. However, we’re not talking about an alternate win condition today. Nope, today we simply wish to acknowledge the raw power of dealing a massive amount of damage in one fell swoop. Today, we are talking about an explosion worth of Konosuba.


We are, of course, talking about one of the new cards from Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty, Explosive Singularity. This is a ten-mana sorcery that reads, “As an additional cost to cast this spell, you may tap any number of untapped creatures you control. This spell costs {1} less to cast for each creature tapped this way. Explosive Singularity deals 10 damage to any target.”

Now, this works in any format it’s legal in, in any deck that has red mana, and ideally, in decks that like to go wide. It’s also especially potent if you can copy the cast itself too, because then you’re just straight-up doing twenty damage to whoever you’re targeting. It’s the kind of stupidly simply, but immensely potent, spell that will feel absolutely incredible to win with.

Sure, it’s going to get countered a lot. Sure, you may have games where you can’t get the mana you need to actually cast it. And sure, sometimes it’ll sit in your hand uselessly for an entire game instead of literally any other spell in the game that you might be able to cast. However, there’s no doubt in our minds that in the games you use this to win, you’ll be the true victor of the day. Good work dear MTG player, you’re making the most of this silly game of ours.
