Baleful Strix will likely replace this card in any deck that was running it, since the card draw is worth 1 point of power, but ....... BlueBlack Birds. It's do-able.

This is a strong creature for any U/B deck. At a CC of just 2, it gives you a strong creature on both offense and defense.

Toss him and the Esper Stormblade into a deck together for an aerial assault force that can dish out some damage.

4/5

That card is only legal in legacy, vintage, and planechase. I dont doubt it sees play in legacy, but that is a super expensive format with the alpha land cycle being legal.

Of course it is useable in kitchen table casual, but who has 80 dollars to shell out on a playset of uncommon for kitchen table casual?

The 2/1 stats are great for getting in early beats, and most of the time it is unblockable. This guy acts as a removal sink as well, since he's annoying to deal with otherwise.

Plays aggro and defense, kind of like Jund stand-bys Putrid Leech and Sprouting Thrinax. Unfortunately, significantly less staying power, and many of the bigger creatures you might hope to kill are effectively immune to Strix's deathtouch-Baneslayer Angel, Gideon Jura etc. Foiled by a single soldier or bird token. Still, he's only CC 2...

I absolutely love this card, among the high cost artifact creatures in this block this is a good early attack and always a blocker. My esper deck has 4
