I see that thing either in a control deck, that wants to stall the ground until the enemy has been discarded of all useful cards and all creatures been killed, to then win. Or in a combo deck, that just wants to stall the ground again, until a certain combo has been found that instantly wins the game. Also: false cure, or cards that prevent lifegain.

Don't be fooled by his drawback in limited. Giving your opponent some life is okay because at 6/6 for 4 mana, you're basically killing anything that blocks (or gets blocked by) this.

Automatic 4 of in a deck with Lure and False Cure. I call it Malpractice.

Also, survives a turn 5 extorted Mutilate. Yeah, maybe not as bad as you think...

I still have a hard time seeing the issues here. He's a vicious beater. He's stopped by chump blocking for sure, but he *must* be blocked if you want to live long. If they are teching with False Cure then it's dangerous to do anything but chump it.

IMO, it does a decent enough job without anything special in similar ways to some of the old big beaters. 6/6 is hard for control decks to deal with appropriately if they've been removing your other threats, and 4 mana isn't too much of a set back for card neutrality (at worst.) If they can't get a steady board position after a bit this guy eats those kinds of decks alive; meaning he has a place.

I'll agree that Desecration Demon is better, as is Abyssal Persecutor (by a mile) but mono-black demons are almost always brutal if you manage their drawback. This guy doesn't need a lot of managing and is quite impressive. Again, mono-black is almost a drawback by comparison to mixin... (see all)

Erebos bonded with this beast over their shared love of coins, the afterlife, and life "disadvantage."

I am quite happy to see some cards that aren't all upside being printed. Also the art is pretty sweet. It reminds me of the old book Dinotopia.

Turn 4 this.
Turn 5 Disciple of Bolas + Extort?

Holy Mantle?

Only things in standard I can think of.

An interesting card, but very difficult to make good. It can definitely act as a large, efficient beater, and many will not want to block it to keep their creatures alive. However, it can easily be blocked to prevent death, and in the late game does more harm than good, as it will provide a decent body, but also life to keep the opponent going

2.5/5

@orzhov20 Really? So their 5/5 demon blocks, they gain 5 life, and next turn, if they don't drop another critter, they lose that life. Oh, and I don't take damage on their turn from the demon.

I will take that bargain!

I plan on making a white-black deck featuring this card. Don't know why. Just think that it might be different.

I agree with Mr. Anjiro. Giving this first strike is an easy way to turn the drawback into a non-issue most of the time. I'd slap an Ethereal Armor on it myself. A 7/7 first strike creature for 5cmc is always good in my book.

Erebos, God of the Dead sneers at the drawback!

a 6/6 for 4 is great, that's the same price as one thousand lashes. but the drawback is huge, especially if its being blocked by a 5/5 demon. if you had Erebos on the battaelfield then it would be amazing. 3/5.

I love the flavor. The higher up people in the church do their brown-nosing good deeds by paying alms to the poor, but of course the poor have to use those same alms coins at Orzhov shops. Win-win, they get karma and they keep their money. Except in the case of this card, life=money.

This is a great target for Fling or Soul's Fire. Basically you want a strong monster that you can get out cheap with little difficulty - Desecration Demon and Vexing Devil are also good choices, as is Wooly Thoctar and Leatherback Baloth.

But I digress, the main idea is not to attack with it, but rather use it for other means. If you must attack with it, use Golgari Decoy to get rid of any lifegain the opponent might try to get with blocking.

People laughed at me for using him. that was until i broke their metaphorical in-game jaws with my alms beast s . Now they know fear. Also i am an advocate for him. his mana cost is easier to cope with in my 3 color deck and they can't use tokens to keep him tapped, unlike a certain demon
