About Desperate Ritual

Desperate Ritual, Instant — arcane, designed by Darrell Riche first released in Oct, 2004 in the set Champions of Kamigawa and was printed exactly in 5 different ways. It see play in 2 formats: Modern and Commander. It's currently being selled by the minimum price of $ 1.13. It's a key card in 6 combos.

Desperate Ritual is a crucial card in Modern Storm decks, providing a burst of red mana to help cast multiple spells in a turn and generate storm count. While there are other similar rituals like Pyretic Ritual and Seething Song, Desperate Ritual's splice ability adds flexibility and synergy within the deck, making it a staple choice for Storm strategies. It should definitely see play in these decks due to its efficiency and combo potential.

Desperate Ritual isn’t a mana ability. When cast, it (or the spell it’s spliced onto) goes on the stack like any spell and can be responded to.


You choose all targets for the spell after revealing cards you want to splice, including any targets required by the text of any of those cards. You may choose a different target for each instance of the word “target” on the resulting spell.


You reveal all cards you intend to splice at the same time. Each individual card can be spliced only once onto any one spell.
