To those of you who look at this card and see the drawback: Your opponent will likely be dead long before it becomes an issue.

Astonishingly powerful. Easily one ofthe best green/black two drops in the metagame.

Durh, OpenSeasonNoobs.
That's why you attack, see how they block/don't block and THEN pump it accordingly.
And you can only pump it once each turn.

This card is way better than what it seems at first glance, and at first glance, it seems awesome...

World of Warcraft in creature form- awesome but you end up with no life.

You seem to be under the odd impression that it somebody were to wield a card like that, then they wouldn't have built their deck around it....

DO you honestly thing that somebody would pitch all their life to a single spell without duressing/negating your hand? Drop a Canopy Cover on the leech and half the things you used as examples aren't viable anymore. Secondly, you can't Naya Charm players. Thirdly, nobody plays holy day/ fog in the current T2. Have you ever heard of suicide decks!?

The more I play this guy, the more I love him. He's one of my all-time favorite two-drops already.

"shame you can only use it once each turn"
Posted By: HoboBobby
Mainly because it would be way too overpowered, an easy and blatant turn 3 kill if no one is able to intervene. I would love if you could use it as many times as you want but again it would be "ohpee"

Quite the good creature. Definitely a competitor for black/green's two drop spot.

Everyone acts like this card is overwhelming, but I don't see what all the fuss is about. The "once per turn" restriction prevents this from being broken. Further, Wizards decided to actually be fair with this card--it's not like the creature's power and toughness exceeds its cmc with no drawback. Rather, it's a two-colored 2/2 for two mana that allows you to pull off some combat tricks, avoid having your leech burned to death with the notorious Lightning Bolt, and pay 2 life to deal 2 more damage. It seems perfectly reasonable.
