Death is an extremely versatile card, and can be used to break adjacency, remove a powerful unit, or destroy a spy you’ve played (so that your opponent cannot pick it up at the end of the round). You can also use it on your own units that have negative attachments like Famine.

About the card:

When he is in the very prime of his glory sitting in his triumphal chariot, even then he is admonished to know himself a man, by one speaking from behind in these words, "Look back, and remember yourself to be but man." And so he rejoices all the more that he is in such a blaze of glory that a reminder of his mortality is necessary.

- Tertullian, Apologeticus
