I love how black keeps conning Wizards into letting it pay 1 life to get a handful of cards or an army of free creatures. And R&D falls for it everytime.

Damn you Bitterblossom and your ability to be championed by Mistbind Clique!

And for the first time, Bitterblossom is legal in Modern. I look forward to abusing this thing.

This card is broken. Not only can it provide lots of aggression through poking your enemy to death (while leaving mana open to counter their spells), you can use it to generate a stream of chump blockers.

@Smoke_Stack
It was used in legacy too (I don't know if it still is or not). It was mostly used in suicide black legacy decks. They pumped out efficient creatures (this included) and ruined their opponents' hands with thoughtseize and hymn to tourach.

And so Bitterblossom jumps from a $20 card to a $75ish card overnight...

... and since I kept all my Lorwyn Faerie funtimes, suddenly I have the cardbase for a modern-worthy deck, by accident, and at no additional costs for myself.

It's an odd feeling with not having to strive or power-trade to get what you need when a format changes.

The card that helped push Faeries into the spotlight with a victory condition that is very hard to remove. It provides Faerie decks with a stream of faeries to overwhelm your opponent or act as defenders at the cost of 1 life a turn. When the life-loss becomes too much target it with the Champion ability of your Mistbind Clique since it is a Tribal card. It also has excellent synergy with Scion of Oona (pumps ups the tokens and grants the enchantment Shroud) and Spellstutter Sprite. Playable across multiple formats and even in non-Faerie decks, this card is fantastic and well designed. A gift from Oona!

Great enchantment. Tribal as well as a token generator for just 2 mana is really good. There is a lot packed into this card that is not evident when you first look at it. Also 1 life a turn, optional or not, is a really cheap price to pay for a 1/1 flying token every turn that can be used to chump or build up a critical mass of flying tokens. Best turn 2 play in standard right now.

This card is savage in mono black, especially G/B decks not running dark confidant. Great on turn 1 w/ dark ritual and thoughtsieze, followed up by a sinkhole.

@MDStrawHat, this is a cheeper (in terms of casting cost) Faerie version of Breeding Pit, and that is a great card, part of a great many combos. Get it? This is a cheeper version of an already great card, it should be easy to figure out that this card is great as well.
