Straight upside with the Scars block still legal.

Turn 1 -> Swamp, Vault Skirge
Turn 2 -> Swamp, Dark Favor, Swing for 4 Lifelink

I am SO making Black Artifacts.

A welcome addition to a poison deck already short a giant growth, vinse of vastwood, ground swell and primal bellow. It's good to know that black can pull a little of it's own weight around here.

This on a turn 1 Glistener Elf or a Turn 2 Blighted Agent is killer. Yeah, that's right, I play BUG infect...I have no friends :(

By focussing ALL his energy towards his belly, he was able to sit down and deliver a very brown, very dark favor... It went SPLASH.

@JFM2796
Did you just say "definitely first pick in draft" when talking about this card? Try passing it. It actually wheels quite often, and you get to take a nice creature or something if the aura deck doesn't work out. You don't always get hexproof guys to make it worth your time.

I honestly don't understand why this card is rated so low. Granted, an extra +1/+0 might not seem worthy of costing an extra mana and a loss of one life over unholy strength, but I never actually found that unholy strength packed enough of a punch for me to consider it worthy of taking up card space in a deck.

Sinister strength is surely superior to this, but this is a welcome substitute in my opinion, turning any weenie into a formidable opponent for most creatures.

I Would like even more if you could pay more life to get it back into your hand. Hooray for black masochism!

Ran this with Aven Fleetwing in Pre-release today. A 2/2 flyer with Hexproof and +3/+2? Why thank you.
