From Mark Rosewater's Making Magic column Monday, October 19, 2009:
"The original version of this card was as you see it except for 1Black. The card was created by Ken during the vampire design. Ken turned over his card designs to Henry (Stern) to put into the set. Henry typed the card in incorrectly as 2Black instead of 1Black. When the mistake was noticed, most of R&D found it funny and the card was kept as is."

It's not even that rare with cards this hilariously bad. Viashino Skeleton, Bog Hoodlums, Frazzle and Chimney Imp are some examples from more recent years.

You know what? This is a well-built card, flavourfully.

As the flavour text says, this zombie is a product of weaker vampires. They turned some poor sap into this brainless thing: unable to think for itself, unable to understand basic motor functions. The weaker vampires don't have the skill to make it any better, so that's why it can't block.

I mean, it's worthless inside limited, but at least it makes sense why it is worthless.

I prefer Rod of Ruin.

Props to Wizards for nailing the flavor of this card. The only people who would consider even playing this card are Mindless Nulls.

Cards like these are printed to humiliate your opponents when you kill them with it.
Got them in a Chimney Imp lock? Drop this baby for a 10 turn win!

Well, it's better than Shinka Gatekeeper...

This almost makes me want to build a deck around Bazaar Trader, based on giving my opponent horrible creatures just to mock them.

If you really hate blocking so much, just play Bloodghast .

I hate this card for making fun of one of my favorite cards - scathe zombies.

I like the character it adds to the Zendikar vampires. Or rather, the character it would add if it was playable enough that people would ever see it.
