Strikes me that it's useful to a degree. I include them in my vampire deck, but only to add just a little more damage. Most of the creatures are low casting cost, so I'm not slowed much.

I use this without any combo in Vampires.

You wouldn't beleive the difference it makes.

The perfect top deck after your opponent has played Worldfire.

This is a relatively good card. Too slow for decks designed to use it for mana. I think it is a good utility card in the - Crucible of Worlds / Fastbond / Zuran Orb - Combo. Since you don't need it to actually untap to continually cycle it in and out to kill your opponent.

Playing this in said combo deck actually is the only place where this in NOT "utility", as you called it: Its a friggin wincon there!

Now for a real review (minus noms)...

I've packed four in my Black/Red deck as a quick burn to start the burn and discard ball rolling. It's slows me down slightly but since my deck has a really low mana curve (all but 3 of my creatures/spells are over 3 mana) it more than makes up for it. By turn 4 I can play just about anything in my deck except for my 2 Flameblast Dragons and my one Sorin Markov.

its ribbish surely , apart from in some ridculas land bouncing combo.

coming into play tapped is a big deal and one life is not enough to offset that
