Would you rather pay 2BlackGreen for a 4/4 or BlackGreen for a 3/3? The choice is yours

Last thing we need is a 4/4 Baneslayer coming out on turn three. Oh wait, we had that with Stoneforge Mystic and Batterskull.

Iunno, can't help but feel that this is disgustingly overpowered, and will be broken quite soon.
Ideas:
Lords. Lotsa lords. Currently the best use for this would probably be Zombie tribal, since it's black, has mostly 2/2 creatures, and has two lords: Cemetary Reaper and Adaptive Automaton.
The Automaton will be the thing helping this enchantment along for the moment, being a lord for 1 after the enchantment drops.
Can't help but get chilly when I think of what the Birthing Pod archetype might be able to do when splashing some black for this.
Can't help but laugh hysterically when I drop 2 and play Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite for 1WhiteWhite.

Side note: this is pretty damn good for Commander, especially in a deck that enjoys creatures going to the graveyard...

It's really good. The things you have to remember during deck building and play that hold it back (from being broken, not from being good) is that a) drawing this with a significant board presence can be a bad thing, since it gives -1/-1 to all the stuff you already have out as well, and that b) drawing more than one of these is problematic, not only because of point a but because only a few of your creatures can actually get the full {4} reduction.

EDIT: Also, apparently they have beauty pageants on Innistrad? Who knew? ...actually, I could see the vampires having beauty pageants, what with their massive aristocracy.

Very fun interaction with Glissa, the Traitor plus a handful of Scars cards like Perilous Myr and Necropede. Mix in things like Ratchet Bomb, a Spellbomb or two and your hand will never be empty. ^_^

@TwoStars: of course you realize that all of Pawn of Ulamog's tokens will die bafore you can use them for anything, right?

Anyway, it's cooler than coolness itself. Bringing any of you creatures with thoughness over 1 two turns earlier has a nearly-infinite combo potential. Zombies eat my brains if this doesn't get in some really broken standard deck.
Sadly, it doesn't really match Innistrad's zombies, given that its best zombie support until now comes from tokens (Undead Alchemist, Army of the Damned, M12's Call to the Grave) which don't get anything positive from this.

@Gahoojin: Take a pen and write Dredge 3 on Simulacrum. Of course, that could break any card...

Pretty neat that it costs {2}, so you can play it with whatever you were dropping after it on curve!

A card that turns Timmy creatures into Spike creatures. Which ironically makes it the Johnniest card of all.

we're forgetting the most important thing here - it also reads "All X-cost hydras get +1/+1"!!!

I'm sorry I'll leave now I'm so sorry

Realistically, having two of these out is hard to pull off (and not worth it).

The best applications with this are Perilous Myr and the highly aforementioned Myr Superion.

However, if you wanted, you could try adding Falkenrath Noble for some madcap mayhem.
Desecration Demon becomes a 5/5 for BlackBlack.
Slow down a game with a 2-cost 4/2 Lodestone Golem.
Make your Swamps work with a 1Black-cost 1/1 Crypt Ghast.
Priest of Gix becomes a sorcery-speed Dark Ritual.
If you're stuck to Modern, Basal Sliver becomes a weaker version of Priest.
Spellskite for 0 anyone?
Wood Elves basically pays for himself.
Bloodhusk Ritualist gets as close to Mind Twist as you'll get to pay for.

@ paulbrooks9:

That combo doesn't work, and even if it did it wouldn't be that great :/ The captain will give the Gravecrawler +1/+1 to counter the enchantment's -1/-1, which means the Gravecrawler won't die on its own. Even if you play two Heartless Summonings all THAT will do is kill the Captain.

But even if you did manage to loop this somehow, you'd still be paying {B} per 1 damage to your opponent, (because you still have to cast the crawler repeatedly), likely starting on turn four or five, and that's not all that impressive. Maybe if you had a storm follow-up, but this is getting far more complicated than a combo with this card needs to be.
