weak? srsly? he's black/red, enchant him with Fists of the Demigod and unless your enemy's creatures have a power of 9 or more or a 3 powered first-striker, they can't mess with him and yes he dies to burn/removal more easily but at least he hits back on those spells *cough*pathtoexile*cough*

This is why we have Regeneration and Coalition Flag.

This guy hates wrath of god. It totally removes the lulz out of hiim.

You're going to swing with a 4/1 liege that buffs up your other creatures +2/+2? You can call him a weak liege but R&D obviously wanted players to have this guy hang back. That way opponents are forced to remove him through non-combat methods, and that's what hurts; they lose a killspell and 4 life, or you continue to hit hard with cinders. Thrown into a Grixis deck and you have the blue mana capacity to counterspell anything that targets him, so it means they took 4 damage and wasted a killspell. This guys is excellent.

He only has 1 toughness.

Haakon, Stromgald Scourge. Might even be better than greater shroud.

A solid liege, but not one of the stronger ones. His ability isn't really that amazing, and I don't really see him fitting into any deck besides a strict B/R one.

I actually find this to be an exceptionally weak liege.. it more than dies to everything, it dies to everything even 1 damage blocked combat damage.. and if your opponent is already ahead they don't care about losing the 5 life just to bolt it. If they are not ahead then its just a win more card.

Finally, a good reason (for me) to play black/red.

It's just asking to be killed with it's fantastically low toughness, yet punishes those who follow their instinct. Basically, you're screwed either way.
