What I love about this card is that not only is it an iconic card from MTG's past, but also the fact that the Baron's story is not yet complete. As far as I know, he was able to fend off Serra(even gave her a ride in his black carraige) then he was on a mission to conquer all of Ulgothra, which he may have done. The last sighting of the Baron Sengir was with his massive Vampire Armies marching through the "Dwarven Gate" underneath Castle Sengir on a mission to conquer either other parts of that Ulgothra...or other planes entirely. We have not seen the last of Baron Sengir.

Undoubtedly one of the greatest legendary creatures ever.

Sure, he's far from the most powerful, he's totally for casual or EDH only...

But he reeks flavor, ancientness, and utter coolness. He is a God amongst timmies, even more so since he is head and shoulders above everything else in this set creature-wise except Autumn Willow.

I sincerely wish for him to return in some form, though I'm pretty sure he's on the reserved list...

Also, he has even increased a bit in power by becoming a bona fide Vampire. While he can't use his regeneration on himself, he now interacts with the likes of Captivating Vampire or Vampire Nocturnus.

The Baron is an exceptionally cool guy, and it's a shame Homelands was such a weak set. Truly a waste of good setting...

My only hope for the Baron is for him to be made into a planeswalker. An awesome planeswalker...

Or, remake him as something like:

Sengir, Lord of Ulgrotha.
keep the mana cost, make him an 8/8 flyer, regenerate target vamp for 2 life, maybe some other abilities like trample or lifelink, w/e. Oh and protection from white. Especially pro white.

That' a very cool old school card, and has a red stone on the chest similar to Sorin. Nice.

Baron Sengir is awesome. You can almost imagine the hammy one-liners he could snap off whilst on the battlefield.
"Your doom is at hand! What say you to a little dance?" *Chops off the hero's limbs with a sword, hero rolls around on the ground and bleeds*
"Behold! Your end is here. Oh, and you're going to die, too."
*CD-I voice*"I wonder what's for dinner?" *Chomps down on someone's jugular*

Time to go buy a bag of +2/+2 counters.

So the new one should be 8 for an 8/8 flying trample lifelink protection from white AND regenerate other vampires?? What is he, the new baneslayer?

Looking back now at cards like the Baron really makes me realise just how powerful Dark Ritual was. He's still good, but without fast black mana, he's not the backbreaker he was all those years ago. Especially not when compared to any number of other big black monsters who followed, from Spirit of the Night onwards. I actually think time has been kinder to Autumn Willow than to her nemesis. He's still one of the coolest characters the game has ever seen, though.

Love this card, was THE card I idolized when I was a kid. Opened so many packs of Homelands back in the day and never got one, finally bought the one at the local card shop for ten bucks. Then over a decade later I bought a box of Homelands and got two... and then later I bought an additional playset. So now I have seven Barons. Still not enough though. I agree with the guy who said make him into a Planeswalker, he's too cool a character to exile to the suckiness of Homelands for all eternity!
