Demons should always feel this evil and I think his cost is fair. Sitting next to Basandra, Battle Seraph and the other angels of the preconstructed commander deck he highlights the contrasts between good and evil, heaven and hell. Great flavour in that context.

Sunblast Angel's arch nemesis. I like it. Hard to recover from though, even with the downside.

Awesome flavour.
It's easy to miss the "from your hand" clause though since it's included in Kaalia's deck, and it's natural to assume all the cards made for her deck would have maximum synergy with her.

I don't see this being played without Cabal Coffers

Darthparallax.. how is not killing all your oppontents creatures not a good move?

Considering it's basically a Plague Wind with an 8/8 body for one more Black, this is pretty damn good. Not to mention ... sure, he'll slow down your creatures ... so just play him after you've done everything you wanted to (attack, abilities, whatever). The other guys won't exactly be in a position to respond! Even if they DO get something hasty out, what wants to attack into a 8/8?

@darthparallax: Multiplayer politics is a difficult thing for a lot of magic players. It's because most people play only one on ones, and don't recognise that pulling some awesome move off that hurts all other players gets you killed very quickly.

This guy can still be worth playing from the hand though. As well as one-on-one uses, he's also very necessary when some git has a token army or the like. Though really Reiver Demon gets the job done just as well.

Also, I have just realised - this is the FIFTH demon I've found so far that can kill Baneslayer Angel. Wow. That protection really ain't working out for her.

What were they thinking? I'm not dissing this card on it's own, but they printed it for a deck based on playing bombs for free and they make a rare with a 'cast from your hand' clause. wtf

The mighty Plague Wind combined with a powerful 8/8 body, though you won't be able to lethally attack in the same turn. I like it a lot, and at that cost it doesn't seem unreasonable.

"I will open one of my six mouths, and I will sing the song that ends the world."

Should have been the flavor text.
