Whoa. An innocuous looking charm, with mode 3 being "Destroy all creatures, except maybe some of my tougher ones" at instant speed? Ouchie!

Well, the other two modes are only worth 1 mana even on a charm (Funeral Charm, Misery Charm). Mass gaining of deathtouch has only ever been available at rare (and always paired with lifelink: Ready // Willing, Vault of the Archangel), but I think it ought to be okay at 3 mana at uncommon. It doesn't destroy all the creatures you most care about - ones you can't block either due to them having evasion or due to them vastly outnumbering you.

I guess so. It just struck me as "Wow, that is impressive" - the kind of finisher I'd normally expect on a {b}{b}{2} sorcery; as a limited bomb.

The first mode is an instant Mind Rot, which isn't printable by itself. Instant discard is rarely allowed at all.
