Rated 5 stars because it's busted in gatherer-terrible.

I have to rate it rather bad (1.5) because Dark Hatchling exists (it has flying, prevents regeneration and costs the same).

Good old value. I remember when I wanted to trade for one of these and my buddy didn't want to trade it! And now I have a ton of Shriekmaws and he's not so attractive anymore, but still solid! Hill Giant is a solid midpick card and Doom Blade is a solid first pick. This guy would obviously be solid in any limited format!

It's a vanilla 3/3 stapled to a Doom Blade! Ach! Hans, run!

Nekraatal is better and Shriekmaw is FAR better than him.

3.5 a solid creature! Removal is removal, even at 6 mana and sorcery speed. There might be better things but imagine all the fun you can have with this guy. BlueBlack Unsummon, WhiteBlack Cloudshift, GreenBlack Reclaim, Black Raise Dead. I would put in a deck with darksteel ingot to help with the cost. Elegant card for black control.

This is why Portal cards shouldn't be reprinted.

Shriekmaw called. He says you're doing it wrong.

Better removal on legs in this game.
