@ZEvilMustache: I think it's because at the time they were fixing the fear/intimidate issue, so they avoided it in the Core Set. Other than that, Dregrage could be correct, too.

@achilleselbow: "Aside from color" is enough to make a card not strictly better or worse. Blue is supposed to be better with evasion, but that doesn't mean this card is worse than that one. In any case, Inkfathom Infiltrator probably wins against either.

I think they gave him this sort of "empowered fear" due to the massive presence of artifact colored creatures.

I think I will call him Dark Magician because I believe in "heart of the cards" instead of this mythic-rarity peeps are talking about ;)

and to make this silly dream closer to the analogy, I shall enchant my dark magician with lavamancer's skill and call it dark magic attack every time I tap for 2 damage ;)

This guy was seriously awesome in casual back in the day. The "super fear" was incredibly handy in dealing with my friend's Thopter Foundry deck.

Wow, even a robot (artifact creature) with no emotions is afraid of this guy, that purple smoke must be some pretty scary ***.

3.5 for being a good common card

extra 0.5 for having very good artwork

Its interesting to see how blocking has been approached in black, I wonder if artifact creatures were used often around the time this was released?

he's a wizard... obviously not great tribal purposes, especially not in black, but if used in a deck without any zombie buffs he's better than Severed Legion.
