Flavor-wise, I get it; it's a parasite that keeps on eating. If only it was a bit cheaper for such a slow effect.

I just realized that I haven't seen +X/+0 or +0/+X (or -X/-0 and -0/-X) counters since the old days, when they were pretty common. Kind of simplifies things to only have two types of power/toughness-affecting counters now.

The whole text in this card is WTF? but at least the artwork is wicked.

the flavor of this card is fantastic. Would love to see a retrofit of it, something like

Enchantment - Aura
Enchant Player
during enchanted player's upkeep, that player puts a -1/-1 counter on a creature he or she controls. If she cannot, then ~THIS~ deals 1 damage to that player.

Otherwise an all time favorite of mine tho for flavor reasons.

This thing annoys the hell out of me. Just reading this thing made me angry at the world.

You can't even use this to feed Quillspike.

I tried to make creatureless decks that used this as a last ditch kill. Couldn't get them to work. Too costly and too slow.

What's the deal with these vintage cards with absurdly long rule text to achieve a relatively simple effect? At least on that point I can confirm that WotC has improved greatly.
