All of you are looking at this wrong.

It enables the legendary TRIPLE KILL!

The reason this doesn't cost 2B, 1BB, or BBB is that at that cost, drawing three cards and losing three life is REALLY strong. Still, it would have made the card a lot cooler.

Costs quite a bit compared to, say, Sign in Blood. However, the offensive capabilities of this card in the right deck are pretty good, while using it when your opponent isn't running infect is also helpful.

Whereas Sign in Blood is the draw card that can be used as a final blow if necessary, this is a final nail in an infect-y coffin, but can still, say if you're not playing against infect, be used to concentrate in dire straits. Versatility is good. (The card is still roughly average, however)

Not the greatest card, but it actually fit my deck perfectly. I can easily go balls to the wall in my first 3-4 turns with my U/B infect deck and get my opponent to 6 or 7 poison counters with Blighted Agent and some pump spells, but it require a lot of early game aggressive cards. The fact that I can play this on turn 5 means that I don't have to use deck slots on mid game control.

The value is in the versatility. If you're running it in Infect, you can use it to either finish off the enemy OR give yourself some cards if you need them.

For Poison decks, this is their Lava Axe.

Well I didn't play it in the prerelease.

Someone used it on me...when I had no poison yet.

Reminds me of the time someone bloodgift demoned me when I was at 15 life.

Oh man, I guess I'll take some damage to draw a card/three cards. And I didn't have to pay mana. I must say thank you, sir.

People these days...

Win more if you're not playing against infect, and finish off an opponent if you are playing with infect.
Not a bad card, it has use in a lot of situations.

Just make sure your opponent doesn't live to see use of those cards.

Yeah, where this card is sort of bad for draw reasons (use Sign in Blood), I'm thinking this will see play in Infect decks as a finisher.
Three poison counters that aren't from a creature?
That's pretty big.
This will be pretty nice in Limited, not quite sure about Standard,
But word to the wise:
USE IT AS A FINISHER, NOT BEFORE.
