Quote from wtwlf123 »I think this is likely slightly better than Go For the Throat. If it turns out the be the case, I'll likely make that swap.
I have 41 cards that are either artifact creatures or make artifact creatures.
I have ~55 creatures that can have counters on them. But among those, HA would kill or neutralize a lot of them, and meaningfully interacts with the rest. Funnily enough, you can also use it to remove -1/-1 counters from your own creatures to make them stronger or reset Persist or whatever, which is kinda funny.
Might be worth testing Act over GFtT and seeing how it fares on average. My guess is that Heartless Act will be marginally better.

So according to reddit discussion...
It's only a partial combo with thing in the Ice.
Thing in the Ice is in play.
1. Cast this targeting thing in the ice to remove 3 counter goes on the stack
2. Thing in the Ice Trigger goes on the stack removing 1 counter
>>>> Stack resolves in reverse order.
2. So you remove 1 counter, part of the trigger checks to see if TITI has 0 counters on it. It dosn't so it wont flip.
1. Heartless act resolves removing 3 counters. The trigger for thing in the ice to check never happens.
so you have to cast an additional spell after this one, which wastes a card to get the counter off 1 spell early...
