A lot of people do not understand how this card fit into the meta-game of the time of its release.

What are you doing, people? He's a 5/5 for three. Quit being dumb and give him the rating he deserves.

Suicide Black - all about tearing off your own arm so you can beat your opponent over the head with it.

the coalition has some sorcery speed burn... so the totem is better on any turn but the first.
Idk, not like it matters that much if you do lose swamps later on; its what the risk is all about.

I like the old artwork more, but that doesn't make this printing less awesome!
You can definitely see that it's him nontheless. Glad they kept the old flavor text :D

Run sacrifice creatures to counter burn spells.
Dont attack if they have 2 or more power on the board.
Possible to give him cheap flying/unblockable to bypass blockers.

This is the kind of drawback that makes you think how to wield the power. Baneslayer and Obliterator take the thinking out of the equation.

I really like this card. Granted against burn, it loses its appeal really fast, but most of the time its only being dealt damage by the fodder blocking it.

With great power comes great sacrifice.

New Phyrexia seems to have improved on the negator with Phyrexian Obliterator.

The cost may be very color intensive, BlackBlackBlackBlack, but what you get is... disturbing.
Same body, but move the sacrifice effect from you to your opponent.

Back when blue decks were king, this just crushed them. It's the ultimate sideboard card.

Is it just me or is Phyrexian Negator female?
It does have a pair of rather round-looking lumps on its chest.
