Hmmm...the flavor got me to thinking. Does Lord Dralnu = Lord Xenu?

Rhystic Syphon. Same CMC, guaranteed 5 drain, plus an extra ability to make it harder to counter AND tie up your opponents mana if they do counter it. That said, 1.5 because it fits in domain/sunburst/rainbow decks, and because Rhystic's counter ability can backfire since you're basically handing your opponent a colorless Cancel.

When I first glanced at this card, I thought the x was a r.

pure garbage.. At best, it deals 5 damage and you gain 5 life for 5 mana... In the best chase scenario..

This isn't garbage at all. Doing 5 and gaining 5 for 5 cmc isn't amazing, I grant you, but it's good. A domain deck /will/ have it do 5 for 5 though and it isn't going to turn up in any other kinds of decks.

Very linear card design, but it's not garbage.

so says you Jenss. This card wins in a domain deck.

Yet in a Domain deck, it has the same CMC as Last Stand... Granted that I'm assuming the domain deck is using Prismatic Omen, if you don't have the omen then this is more reliable.

Axelle your comment made me laugh - 5 Stars :)

It's basically Corrupt except you pay one less colorless, it can't target creatures, and it can be used effectively in more decks than just mono-black. 3/5

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
