It only costs 1 more than looming shade. Seems fair to get in on what has previously been an effect that's only effective in mono-black.
I feel like the casting cost of 2BlackBlack kind of defeats the purpose of making it more accessible, however.

I think that it would have been perfectly fair at 3Black. I would've liked it, even. As it is, it's counter-intuitive.

the casting cost is so stupid. its pumping mechanic makes it easy to splash but the stupid casting cost ruins it. what an ass.

aww, I love ants, I agree with you guys, if the casting cost was like 3B and it was a 1/1 then it would be nice.

Oh so pumpable. But it costs a little much to begin with. At least it's versatile.

But can shades be saved by Swarmyard? Hmm, can they? Yeah, that's what I thought.

Especially valid since this partially hinders removal from destroying them the instant they come out, when you cannot pump them above incoming burn, which is an annoying issue with shades.
