So, this thing has a rather interesting synergy with Nightshade Peddler, taking it from an on-the-draw neat trick, to becoming much more relevant in the late game. Give it a try, works surprisingly well, especially in pauper.

I really like the design on this guy, he kills himself if you don't have a target, but when you do you can often get a lot of value out for 1 mana. It's nice for finishing off a creature after combat or burn too.

A one-drop in Red that can kill mana dorks, utility dorks, and any X/1s that are going to get big and scary if they're killed right f***ing now? Or he can kill himself so you can trigger Morbid? And all it costs is {R} and one life?

The only real downside to him is that there's only one card in Red that uses Morbid, so using him as a trigger in mono-R just doesn't work.

Very interesting. Seems like something to sideboard into an aggro/tempo deck for the mirror-match. It kills a lot of powerful stuff like Birds of Paradise, Stromkirk Noble, Grim Lavamancer, and Delver of Secrets

Drops the 1 mana from sparkmage and picks up 1 damage to you. Attempts to teach newer players that life is worth less than mana, but Im not so sure the message came out so easily understable.

As far as utility rares go (like birds of paradise, grim lavamancer,etc etc) this beats the living crap out of them and I approve. I think it would be awesome if this common made it into standard sideboards, although the likelihood is slim.

Somehow, I have a feeling this silly thing is better than it looks. Does a nice job popping birds, various 1/1 dorks, and so on.

This will be the card that weeds out the noobies when DKA launches. Time to see how many people decide to go first and try to play this turn 1.

I found him to be most useful as a Morbid enabler. When he comes into play he can just deal his damage to himself if your opponent has no good targets, and because he only cost you one mana, you will still have plenty of mana up for casting a Morbid spell.

This card can drop any of the 1 toughness creatures and still be a chump blocker, or be a 1 mana morbid trigger. I don't know why this card has such a low rating.

Kills itself unless you have a target. Creature or player would have been nice.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
