@Yesnomu: What you're suggesting doesn't work. If you say "I'm attaching this to an Eldrazi Spawn, sac it in response", you get one mana in your mana pool and the equip ability fizzles, because there's nothing to attach it to any more. If you say "I'm waiting until its attached, then I'll sacrifice the Eldrazi Spawn", you'll get the two cards you're after, but it will already be dead the next time you would have a chance to activate a mana ability. In Magic, its a good idea to remember the rule of thumb "I cannot sacrifice one creature for two different effects". Eldrazi Spawn are good fodder for sacrificing, you just can't use their mana abilities AND sacrifice them to something else. (That said, if you had a broodwarden or some kind of toughness boosting effect, your plan would work very nicely)

Actually, Necropotence comes AFTER this card, so this isn't the fixed Necro. Necro is the broken Greed...

I think that this card is quite funny and balanced... Seen as a black Treasure Trove, this is much more preferable!

the original Necro variant, although this version is far more painful....

The non-broken Necro. Compair with the even-more-broken-than-Necro Necro.

EvilCleavage: I think the card that you want is Carnage Altar. Anyway, I'm testing this card in my Ghost Council EDH deck; seems pretty good to me.

Combos well with Words of Worship.

"Greed, for lack of a better word, is good. Greed is right. Greed works. Greed clarifies, cuts through, and captures, the essence of the evolutionary spirit. Greed, in all of its forms; greed for life, for money, for love, knowledge, has marked the upward surge of mankind"

Is there a card that has something along the lines of sacraficing a creature to draw a card? I didn't think there was, but I'm not sure. If anyone can help me out I would appreciate it!

3Black + Black and 2 life: Draw a card.
3Black + BlackBlack and 4 life: Draw two cards.
3Black + BlackBlackBlack and 6 life: Draw three cards.
3Black + BlackBlackBlackBlack and 8 life: Draw four cards.
3Black + BlackBlackBlackBlackBlack and 10 life: Draw five cards.
3Black + BlackBlackBlackBlackBlackBlack and 12 life: Draw six cards.
3Black + BlackBlackBlackBlackBlackBlackBlack and 14 life: Draw seven cards.

How many cards do you have to plan do draw with this thing to justify playing it? Granted, the activation mana is negligible, since you can spend it bit by bit at the end of your opponent's turn.

One or two is obviously terrible.
Three is strictly worse than Ambition's Cost.
Four is usually worse than Infernal Contract.
Five is arguably worse than Promise of Power.
At six or more, you're probably better off with Necrologia.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
