It's like a Standard, more expensive Attrition. Solid

Completely outstanding in limited - take special note that he can sacrifice himself. This guy does work.

I like it. in a BW deck you can sac him to himself to kill watever is troubling you, then bring it back with the sun titan. But then again, the sun titan makes lots of cards look good.

Can take advantage of Training Grounds if you can use that and have blue mana available.

This seems like one of those cards that really wants to get off the ground. Cheaply costed, solid ability. Unfortunetly there is just not that much that plays really with him right now. Most humans don't have undying or splinter abilites that would make him very sexy. Scars block was more or less bereft of humans that you'd want to mess around with this guy.

You really have to like this card though, I can imagine splashing him into some snapcaster mage builds to give them more reach, snapcaster is also a human!

Perhaps he can makes some {B}/{W} decks for interactions with Doomed Traveler

The interaction that intrigues me the most with this guy is with Bitterheart Witch and Curse of Death's Hold. By having this guy out and playing the witch, you can bust out the curse, and then still have 2 live creatures for this guy as fuel to blow up any larger creatures they happen to spit out. Of cours... (see all)

In limited he's a real beast, especially in a B/W deck that can produce human tokens. His downsides are that he'll be competing for sacrifices with some other nice limited cards like Ravenous Demon and Demonmail Hauberk, and the mana price is a bit high. Oh, and he's not very good at killing off undying creatures (but what is besides exile?). Still, having removal on a stick is pretty great in limited. And he's got lots of buddies: Doomed Traveler, Mausoleum Guard, Elder Cathar, Unruly Mob, and Village Cannibals.

Luv him! Having a kill spell that can hang-out with its wang-out on the battlefield has much hidden value! Isn't that what we're all after? o_O

It's like a standard, WAY more expensive attrition that trades attrition's targeting clause for a specific kind of fuel, and can only be activated once a turn. Not at all solid.

Plays nice with village cannibals and Archdemon of greed, but that deck wont make it past casual and most people who do make that deck will be very unsatisfied.

This and Commander's Authority go together like cultists and human sacrifice.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
