Each Time Spiral card was an homage to at least one previously printed card.

This card references Carnophage, which means "flesh-eater" whereas Sangrophage means 'blood-eater."

Should've been a 4/4. It doubles Carnophage's mana cost and upkeep cost, why not complete the effect with P/T? Barrow Ghoul is a 4/4 zombie for 2 CMC...

It's Carnophage's unsuccessful older brother

I think it latches onto it's victim like a monitor lizard, hanging on until its teeth saw through flesh and bone.

I've play-tested these in my Suicide Black deck - absolutely horrendous. More times than not you've got them tapped because you can't afford to lose the two life, or you can't deal enough damage per turn to not worry about losing the two life.

@Carnophage_4ever - I agree, except not STRICTLY better. Please learn what that means, or just say better.

If you put him next to carnophage, they have a shouting match

Kinda reminds me of the god warrior from Nausicaä :P
Although if that was the case, it's stats would look more like Darksteel colossus' :P

@ Hairless Thoctar
Not even in theory, actually. It would be better than Carnophage if it had been a 4/4 for BB for 2 life loss, or a 3/3 for BB with 1 life loss. Carnophage is good for his 2 for 1 ratio, damage and cc. Sangrophage has a 1.5 for 1 ratio with the same variables. Strictly worse than Carnophage at first glance.

EDIT: Just another "Eon Hubber".

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
