One of the few cards in Magic clearly overcosted by FOUR.
A 4/4 for BBB would be expected if you have a serious upkeep cost.
The +3/-2 ability is not overpowered for a 3 CMC creature, and the BBB keeps it from being splashed.

It's too bad - this would have been an actual intriguing (and flavorful) card if it had been BBB.

Overcosted. Good ability, though.

At least he only deals two damage if you decline the upkeep. Still, its a drawback, and for this cost...
"Better" badass black creatures-
Lord of the Pit
Xathrid Demon
Liege of the pit
Stronghold Overseer
Shauku, Endbringer
Pit Spawn
big black fatties with drawbacks are a lot of fun, as long as you keep them fed and happy ^^

Badly overcosted with a random upkeep tacked on, though it's ability is at least decent.

Eh, it's pretty darn old. For its time it's hardly terrible.

@reapersaurus: 3 CMC would have been undercosted for this creature back when it was printed. Remember, creatures cost more then -- Juzam Djinn was considered game-warpingly powerful, and even Derelor, a 4/4 with no abilities for 4 CMC and a much nastier drawback, actually saw some use.

I think the art qualifies as "things you can't unsee."
