...but I wouldn't pay 6 for a 4/3 flier. Some undying seems very cheap, and other undying seems too expensive. I'm sure they tested the pants off the mechanic, though, so I'll just wait and see how things play out.

weirdly has the distinction of being the lowest-rated vamp on the gatherer.

For my money, he's not that bad. A 3/2 flier in a relevant tribe that comes back as a 4/3 isn't too shabby, though yeah, he's definitely overcosted. If anything he demonstrates how absurd Undying is as a rule.

Undying creatures are essentially two creatures in one. And one of them is better than the printed card!

to people who are rating this low - Have you guys actually ever played any draft?

He is definitely 1 mana too high, but this guy is still a very common pick in draft. Flyers win limited, and Innistrad/DA is a very limited-conscious block.

@grynning: "Flyers win limited, and Innistrad/DA is a very limited-conscious block." Don't I know it. And Innistrad has a perfect, common solution to flyers. Kessig Recluse won me three booster drafts against spirit decks.

the main problem is that he's compared to things like Vampire Nighthawk rather than looked at on his own. Mechanically he costs the same as 2 Markov Patrician and is a little stronger and has evasion in exchange for lifelink. He's essentially two creatures in one which is very unusual in black.

he could work very well in any vampire deck, and even better in any vampire deck that focuses on doubling counters the vampires place on themselves (since he would already have one on himself already). it is too bad that he's not 5cc, but they probably didn't want him competing with the Sengir staple.

*edit* and really? this is the one that has a "no wings omg so unrealistic and it's a dude so that means it's TWILIGHT" comment on it? vamps fly with psychic powers dude. like levitate. they don't need wings, and also I think it's refreshing to see one vampire in the set that's not a blood-crazed goth-***.

A shame such poor stats landed on such a smoking hottie.

@ Ferlord: You used the example of two green creatures to say a black creature is inefficient? I mean, I agree this guy is overcosted for nonlimited formats, but within INN/DA/AR draft, this guy is scary good.

The reason this card costs 6 is because cards like Kalastria Highborn, Viscera Seer, Bloodthrone Vampire, Captivating Vampire, etc. exist. Vampire is a very strong type, and having repeatable sacrifice in a strong type with a strong affinity for sacrifice opens up worlds of possibilities. Especially because Vampire Hexmage is a thing.
