Aside from the epic art, this card is balls out crazy in draft. Coming down turn 2 means that it's going to see some stuff die. What makes it really good is that it just sits there, and it feels like garbage to waste a removal spell on a 0/1, so most people won't. Even if they do, they still lose and you gain. But if this sticks around, I gained over 10 life from this guy at the pre-release.

Seems a sweet in limited. Comes down early and gets a little more value out of each of your guys.

This is replacing all of my Disciple of the Vaults.

I think this may be the missing piece to give me some consistency in my GreenWhiteBlack Perilous Forays deck. Between token generation and Amulet of Vigor that's a lot of dying. Ob Nixilis, the fallen is nice and it's hard to go wrong with Knight of the Reliquary.
Also, I've seen mean choices being forced on people with this card and Killing Wave.

Works really well in a morbid deck alongside undying creatures, sac outlets like Altar's Reap and kill spells like Prey Upon and Tragic Slip.
Even Better, use alongside Predator ooze. Of course, the mana gets a bit screwy then; {G}{G}{G} is hard to play alongside {1}{B}, but I guess that's what Woodland Cemetery is for.

In morbid decks or any deck that sacrifices a lot, this guy is fantastic. Also works well against Eldrazi decks interestingly enough. I used it against my brother and a couple of games the creatures I sacrificed were just enough to push him over the edge.

Itsmeyouidiot, you took the words right out of my mouth. "BLOOD ART TECHNIQUE!! A PAINTING OF THE SOUL!!" I liked that game. A neat card too, you could effectively fit it into vampire tribal and pump him up with Rakish Heir, or he can go into simple mono black, where he can make friends with Massacre Wurm or Mutilate.

This will make your opponents think twice before dropping that Supreme Verdict, especially if you're running tokens.

I run an Endrek Sahr EDH deck. This guy transforms "Oh, he's just running a little combo over there" into "OH GOD KILL HIM KILL HIM NOW"

According to the other day's arcana, the painting that the Blood Artist is doing is the art from Curse of Oblivion
