Emrakul only has protection from colored SPELLS. The kathari can still block it.

Pestilent Kathari kills Emrakul, the Aeons Torn. Glissa, the Traitor does not.

This is a solid card for a common. If you keep the 3 mana open (which is not difficult mid to late game) your opponent will think twice about attacking you unless he/she has first/double strikers or overwhelming creature advantage. Not quite strong enough for top tier decks, though, IMO.

OMG this is underrated, it is a flying deathtoucher in black! if you pay the 3 CMC, it can whack most other flying fatties and live, and even kamikaze most of the more overpowered flying creatures (baneslayer, I'm looking at you).
It is COMMON!!! Damn people, a black flying 3CMC deathtoucher with possible first strike at common!
Even the first strike angels will fear this one (except for the protection from from black ones ofc).

Feels a lot like Volcano Imp. Only a little bit better.

Unfortunately you got (probably) a wrong answer in the forum. If you activate the first strike of the Kathari and it meets a non-first striking creature in combat, it will destroy it after the first strike damage step and the Kathari will live on to tell his glorious story. If the guy who answered thought about a double block situation he would be right: Two 1/1 flying bird tokens block the Kathari, Kathari kills one token in first strike step, second bird kills Kathari in normal combat step.
Nevertheless is the activated ability far too expensive at 2Red imho.

You do realize this card can kill Baneslayer Angel and Shepherd of the Lost right? Last time I checked that was something that Vampire Nighthawk failed miserably at.

That being said, the cost to give him first strike is to high, I think 1Red would have been better.

Only if you forget about the first strike

this things is such a pest.

Please compare this card to a Vampire nighthawk... it showcases just how mediocre it is.
