I like the whole carnival feel to a lot of the Rakdos cards. They make wanton slaughter fun! Well, more fun.

Doesn't look very grim to me, he looks rather happy

Sorry to say it, but none of your second paragraph works at all. Regenerated creatures never leave the battlefield: it's a replacement. It says "The next time this creature would be destroyed this turn, instead, remove it from combat, tap it, and remove all damage from it." So, your skeleton would never hit the graveyard to trigger Skirsdag High Priest. Next, Golgari Charm, unless you've somehow turned this into an enchantment, gives all creatures -1/-1 until the end of the turn. A creature with toughness less than or equal to 0 is put into its owner's graveyard as a state-based action. It isn't actually destroyed. Thus, a creature with Indestructible can be removed this way, and regeneration is impossible.

I'm not sure how relevant a regen ability is on a 2/2 that can't block, especially since it costs more than Drudge Skeletons' regen even if you don't unleash it. This guy's definitely more versatile but I don't think it's a better card than the old skellies.

A 2/2 for 1B with reasonably-costed regeneration? Sure, why not? This should be a gem in Limited and might even find a place in Standard (just kidding). 'Course it's hard to justify regeneration on a creature that can't block, considering regeneration, especially on creatures of this size, is usually used for repeat chump-blocking. But still, for Pauper its not a bad card for a skeleton deck. It probably goes without saying, though, that the flavor-text is just, just awful.

You guys are missing the point of this card, the Rakdos Unleash effect means you never stop swinging , this skeleton makes that work because while everything is unleashing pure fury, this guy sits back and blocks all day long. I would play him with the black deathtouch guy as well. You dont have to play everything with unleash...these cards would be for defence. If Wizards is smart they will print a couple more cards that give your creatures haste in the next 2 sets...that will make Rakdos VERY GOOD.

Decent Skeleton Warrior is Decent, though I wish they would print a truly amazing Skeleton one of these days that isn't a troll, a vampire, or a dragon. Great Art though.

Rakdos, Guild of Terrible Puns. Just wait till you hear the punchline, it'll slay you.

The punchline? You must've missed his amazing hook.

@Trygon_Predator and StreamHopper
Careful, you'll tickle this guy's funny bone.
