"Tonight we drink, to card advantage!"

Fantastic ability, you'll be targetting yourself more often than not, as others have mentioned similar to Phyrexian Arena or Dark Confidant, although Bob will never truly be replaced, this is about as good as it is going to get. Fact that he can beat face helps alot too and if REALLY need that one last point of damage you can target opponents with the ability. Not too shabby for {3}{B}{B}

Oh wow, a Reanimatable Phyrexian Arena. This year Wizards has brewed up some incredible demons!

Love it 4.5/5

Ran this card in a sealed event last night. It was pivotal in a couple of my wins (including a game where I actually finished my opponent off with the card draw/life loss ability), but it also cost me a game where I foolishly dinged myself down enough to let a Brimstone Volley kill me. Still, there seems to be something particularly appropriate about a Demon's ability coming back to bite you in the arse.

@Darthparralax: shut up. This and Griselbrand fill up very different niches, you know? You're comparing apples to oranges here.
Even in Kaalia or reanimator, Gris isn't strictly better than this. If for some reason you fail to cheat it into play, try getting 8 mana (4 of it color-specific) with the amount of accel and fixing Kaalia decks usually run. I dare you.

That said, I love this card to death. Both artwork and mechanics. Wizards seem to be hellbent on printing powerful black spells attached to demons lately, don't they? This and Phyrexian Arena, Reaper from the Abyss and The Abyss, Griselbrand and Necropotence, Rune-scarred Demon and Demonic Tutor...

In most cases one would draw from this demon, but the text reads 'target player loses 1 life', which means it could potentially kill off your opponent also. Underworld Dream only make it even more deadly on that regard.

Incredibly powerful, Phyrexian Arena on a 5/4 flyer for 5 mana is almost TOO well costed.

I love seeing a noob target his opponent with this. I saw a kid the other day, and I was playing him, I played this, and he said, "Oh, that's not a good card. Your opponent would only lose one life." I just looked at him, waited a second to see if he was joking (he wasn't) and busted down laughing.

Amazing stats and ability, and look how happy he is.

Great card.
Of course, Phyrexian Arena is much better, because it costs only three mana and is much harder to get rid of. Still this demon is awesome and even better in 2HG games where you can make your teammate draw cards.
