Um...Can't you activate the Minion's ability in response to the triggered ability, thus killing a land before it taps itself? >_>

What you guys are missing is that he only gets tapped if he deals the damage. Play a black/white deck and pack some Circle of Protection: Blacks. Problem solved.

Or you could just enchant him with Pariah. Problem solved... unless you get damaged by nonblack sources, haha.

Necrotic Ooze
This goes for many other huge demons as well.

This is a better use for sacrifice fodder than Lord of the Pit, I think, since it creates card advantage and can't be Terminated. Though back in the day, protection from white would have been much more useful and would have made him pretty much invincible. Unfortunately with powercreep, we now have his children Visara the Dreadful and Helldozer.

Leshrac is a planeswalker. Thus he is not necessarily bigger than this thing or scarier, just better at controlling. Although, um, he does control Lim-Dul, and... um... yeah never print Leshrac.

Runed Halo and Fatestitcher solve this card's problem's so easily.

Interesting Black fatty.
Breeding Pit and Bitterblossom comes to my mind.
High casting cost shouldn't be a problem with mana acceleration such as Dark Ritual and Cabal Coffers.

Love this evil little guy. His pro-black allows you to run Pestilence all you want without losing it. Upkeep can be worked around. But I have this question - why is it that Lord of the Pit MUST sack a creature if it's available (check ruling) but it's not the same for Minion of Leshrac?

I think the word 'during' is the key not to get hurt by him, theres lots you could do during your up-keep. Or on the other hand having a permanent out which allows you to put a creature you 'own' into 'a' graveyard each turn can have its advantages mind you, can be risky. I would give it a 5/5 if it said 'permanent' instead (in both cases).. 4.5/5
