There's nothing more satisfying that Dark Ritualing this out turn 1

Except, you know, having friends

Favorite card of all time. I'm never unhappy to see you, hippie!

If you manage to give this guy double strike, he's a Hymn to Tourach on a flying stick! Ouch.

Clearly a staple in almost any black deck, though cards released that use the graveyard could work against you if they happen to be the one discarded eg: (Anger, Haakon, Stromgald Scourge, Basking Rootwalla)

Won me an M10 draft match tonight, though he only attacked once before he was given Pacifism. The card my opponent discarded randomly: Platinum Angel.

I signed up for an account just to add my 5/5 on this car and reminisce about how awesome it is. Waaaay back in the day, when Antiquities was a new thing, this was one of the columns of my blue/black control deck. Dark Ritual to Hypie specter first turn is my benchmark for devastating opening plays. I know Dark Ritual isn't making a comeback, but I'd love to see my ole Hypie Specter make a comeback.

this shreds your opponents hand much faster than expected...
just love this guy
and the old artwork was not better IMO, it just looked... like some out of proportion toy armor floating there with a tail and eyes. oh wait, thats what it is
ill take ring wraith guy over that. especially when it looks this awesome

This is how I know Vampire Nighthawk isn't as big of a powerleap as everyone thinks... including me. I'm totally giving this Basilisk Collar just to give nighthawk the finger. 5/5 You just can't beat Hypnotic Specter.

@SirMalkin: That's actually a drake (it has 2 legs, not 4) and drakes are generally pretty puny.
