What a flavour text. Rivals the "Right to bear arms" travesty.

For 2Black maybe.
But like this the cost seems to high if you could just get 4/4s or even bigger creature for 4cc when paying more than one black mana instead of paying 6 life. (Over the top example for BlackBlackBlackBlack: Phyrexian Obliterator)

It might have some use when combined with other card like Tainted Sigil, though.
But there are better things to spend your life on. (Hurr hurr.)

Groan-indcuing flavor text aside, I was surprised to find out this wasn't a Kamigawa card, that guy's armor does look fairly Samurai-esque.

I'm working on a deck with this guy in it.
It's white-black.
All the white cards try to gain me obscene amounts of life.
All the black cards use life as a resource.

Instant speed, cardless pumping is always good.

Clearly, they were trying to be careful. They didn't want people to use something like Fatal Frenzy to power up the creature too quickly and go for the one shot kill. Making the costs of the card cheaper probably would have broken it.

Makes me wonder if there is combination of costs that could have made this card anything other than terrible or broken.

Why don't you like the flavor text? I love it and so I do with Werebear's. :-)

Stupid card that shouldn't have wasted a slot in the demon deck of Divine vs Demonic.

hmm, in a vamp life link deck this might work fine.

interesting but underpowered :(

I run this in a deck with Wall of Reverence, Basilisk Collar, and Sanguine Bond. It's a nasty combo.

@HairlessThoctar: I totally thought this was from Kamigawa too, considering the art and the Spirit creature type.

Love the joke, hate the art. Not that it's poorly done, or anything. It just scares me.
