Cool card. Stinky breath.
Breath of Malfegor

how about having it that betrays in play when you cast him and discard a 5 card hand in a multiplayer game. THEN active sarkhan vol's +1 ability :)

@Jay13x: You do NOT want to play this guy on turn 4 with a Dark Ritual. You wait until your opponent's number of creatures is high enough and the number of cards in your hand (minus Malfegor himself) is low enough for the two to be equal, THEN you cast him. Even turn 6 is probably too early in most cases.

On the other hand, if you have Chandra Ablaze out you can easily discard down to the desired number of cards with her Flame Javelin ability.

R&D guy 1: "Hey guys, so, you know how Rakdos the Defiler was demon tribal in a set without demon tribal?"
R&D guy 2:"uh... yeah"
R&D guy 1:"Well it's a little too late, but I think we should make a replacement guild leader, ya'know, with self discard effects?"
R&D guy 2:"Yeah. Let's make him a dragon too."
Stoner in corner: "Coooool"

Also, I kind of prefer Malfegor's look to Rakdos's bull head. I love how the flavor text mentions how awesome his creature types are. He's no dragon wizard, but still.

rolf it is a demon and a dragon and yet it can still kill baneslayer I think goes to show just how useless the protection from demons and dragons ability is.

nobody seems to recognize that "discard your hand" is about the hugest drawback anything has ever had besides outright losing. Against any kind of controlling strategy Malfegor is a good way to completely *** yourself.

That said, he's pretty awesome.

You know haikus aren't supposed to rhyme, right?

An amazingly enjoyable card to play; I love to watch the opponents entire board disappear before my eyes. Although the art work for the pre-release version is far better (and more shiny).

Malfegor KILLS Baneslayer, in the most ironic kill move ever. He is mostly a one-sided board wipe in trade for your hand, along with a 6/6 flyer, who will hit a few times before they recover a field position. Did I mention that he kills Baneslayer?
