1. General Comments

Shadow Bolt is a relatively efficient source of removal. However, it has mostly been eclipsed since the release of Darkbomb.

2. Constructed Play

Shadow Bolt is rare to see in Constructed currently. Although there is nothing wrong with the card in terms of value or efficiency, it is generally not considered strong enough to be worth inclusion in a deck over other options. Even in Reno Jackson decks, which commonly play 30 different cards, it does not usually make the cut.

3. Arena

Shadow Bolt is a solid card in Arena. Quality removal is hard to come by in this format, which means that you should generally be happy to pick up any efficient source of damage.
