I equip my Lyzolda, the Blood Witch with this in my EDH deck.

P.S. I also run Lifeline. Things can get out of hand.

Lol. Thats narrowminded of you. Vampires can be just as rampaging and mass-murdering as any other. Most are humans anyway wether they proceed with guile or outright slaughter that penchant is there, its simply mulitplied by their unatural powers. Thank you WTC for keeping an open mind ;)

Dude this card would be wicked on Deathbringer thoctar! Two counters every time a creature dies?? Wow that would make that card amazing! And it's already good, jsut a little slow!

Works well on Pawn of Ulamog in conjunction with Eldrazi Spawn generators.

I played against this in a vampire deck. That was enough to learn that {2} is a ridiculous cost for this thing.

I was playing in a free-for all against elves & goblins the other day. Each a half dozen creatures, and neither seemed concerned with my two little 1/1 Viscera Seers (each equipped with a blade). All six goblins attacked the green player, who blocked with all six elves, which happened to result in the mutual destruction of both armies. On my next turn, I calmly hit each of them for 25.

Jeebus Kriste.

My friend has been making an infect deck with this for standard. Just an absolute pain; he runs Flensermite/Imp thing and Bonehoard with this blade and just... ew. The sacrifice mechanic on the imp is 100x more evil than Vampire Aristocrat.

And Bonehoard is Bonehoard. A pain.

He could make it even more painful with something like Grave Pact or Innocent Blood but then it wouldn't be clear for standard.

(I think it'll have trouble against bouncing and artifact removal, decks I don't run)

This needs to be a 5/5. At one colorless mana to play and another 1 to equip, it's easily worth the effect in even most non-vampire decks.

I'm getting ready to throw a few of these in a red/white/black deck built around Varchild's War-Riders, Goblin Sharpshooter, and Suture Priest. Blood Seeker is a perfect candidate to equip this to, but even then I wouldn't feel bad if I were forced to put it on a Soul Warden in a pinch.

Today, I put this on a Vampire Nighthawk. By the next turn, I had a 10/11 flier with deathtouch and lifelink. Beautiful!

seems a little overpowered in my eyes, considering its low mana costs and the already very strong vampire tribe but thats just my personal opinion

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
