This guy is awesome in EDH because he sucks there.

No hear me out- he is on the surface very very weak- but it just so happens that is his super power: "I don't look like a threat, which means you won't try hard enough to kill me. Which means you will all die."

Sanguine Bond, Exquisite Blood

+ everything that even looks like half a Deathgreeter

doesnt the ability work at instant speed? i thought you could use it to block then sac him for the effect before combat damage is dealt. unless the creature had trample, it is an effective 1 drop for us poor people. not to mention black has several cards that use put into graveyard from the battlefield effects. cards like basilisk collar make this card annoying

Good with Mortician Beetle. Dealing 1 life, gaining one life, and pumping a creature is always fun.

I fail to see how this is a bad 1 drop.

Most 1 drops are either chump blockers (vast majority), have some effect that doesn't directly help you beat the opponent (things like Llanowar Elves), or take time to actually become useful (Mortician Beetle, Scute Mob, etc.). This guy may only be a 1/1, but he's also free life and a free unpreventable point of damage on an opponent for only B. Combine that with the fact that even late-game there aren't a lot of ways to get around losing the life and that Black has several cards that do something good when a creature goes to the graveyard, and you have a very nice 1 drop.

not junk at all. its good. you're trading flying for "sac to gain 1 life and opponent loses 1 life."

Excellent one drop for my drain deck.

Think of it as one mana sorcery speed drain spell that can also be used as a chump blocker. So what if there's no damage on the stack anymore?

Why is this card rated so low? I know black can't do what RDW does, but a black Mogg Fanatic to players is still awesome. This guy should at least be good enough to merit some play.

Kinda reminds me of Orzhova dudes

One of my favorite one drops in my black Dark Tutelage scry/burn deck. Never has hurt me for drawing it.

He is also an obscene target for my Nim Deathmantle, Necrotic Plague, combo.

This card is really, really bad. It just doesn't DO anything. Drawing it is like drawing nothing.
