"Draw seven cards."

Now there's a sentence that has never caused problems in Magic's past.

It's the lifelink that's the real kick-in-the-balls. By the time he gets hardcast via chained rituals or gets reanimated, your life total would allow for 7 or 14 cards drawn. The former isn't totally backbreaking for your opponent, but the latter should be so long as you don't die.

But these days Demons are so sweet they'll give you that life right back so you'll always win the game. How thoughtful.

"The world, he thinks, will behold Griselbrand in all his majesty once more, and on their knees they will weep."

One of the best creatures in the game, bar none.

And this raging powerhouse of a creature's drawback is WHAT...???

See kids, this is why large, powerful creatures need significant drawbacks. When you "cheat" cards like this into play with Eureka, Show and Tell, Quicksilver Amulet, 3 lucky Dark Rituals, etc. there has to be a tradeoff, a risk, for doing so. Here, there is no risk. It's pure profit for nothing.

Look at older big boys like Lord of the Pit, Force of Nature, and the (slightly overcosted) Elder Dragon Legends. Their drawbacks were to make sure that they weren't too easy to cheat onto the battlefield. They were designed that way for a reason.

Wizards, it's time to turn back the clock and do what you did right the first time.

Dev1: But we want to bring back Necropotence's card drawing engine. But what kind of body should we put it on so it won't be broken?
Dev2: How about putting it on a 7/7 lifelinking flyer?
Dev1: Brilliant!

Incredible card. Timmy sees a 7/7 with flying & lifelink. Johnny sees a nice toy for Liliana & Unburial Rites. Spike sees a Yawgmoth's Bargain with lifelink that doubles as a finisher.

So many synergies, so little time.

Block: Unburial Rites
Standard: Unburial Rites
Extended: Fauna Shaman with Necrotic Ooze
Modern: Goryo's Vengeance
Legacy: Dread Return, Exhume, Animate Dead, Show and Tell
Vintage: Oath of Druids, Necromancy, Dance of the Dead
