This card absolutely reeks of being zealously over balanced. I would not be surprised to find out this card originally had an activation something along the lines of "tap and sacrifice Zombie Assassin, destroy target creature" and cost a colorless less. But then the balancing hammer came around and hammered him so bad that the card is completely unplayable.

The entire casting cost of Zombie Assassin along with activation is now 4 colorless and a black, remove a creature in play and two creatures in your graveyard from the game to simply destroy a NONBLACK creature. That does not even follow flavor...do the zombies turn to dust? Does it take 3 zombies to take out 1 nonblack creature? Why can't they destroy black creatures?

Bad card.

Stronghold Àssàssin is the preferable Zombie Àssàssin most of the time:
The latter is a 2/1 for 1BlackBlack which requires tapping itself and saccing a creature for the effect, while
this one is a 3/2 for 4Black which needs to exile itself in particular instead and in addition also two cards in your graveyard.

The worst part about this is the art, and I like Pete Venters. But Freud would have a field day with this.

This has got to be the worst hashshāshīn of the bunch.

Would rather play Warpath Ghoul and Terror. Same cost and you get to keep your creature.

"Zombies don't kill, they recruit" though this guy eats to corpses, kills a creature and then destroys himself, horrible card!

Its name is the same as its creature types.

Patriarch, I know how many problems you have with those barbarians, so I thought you'd want something to deal with them."

"Yes Nicol Bolas, I do have problems with them. They---where did it go?"

"Oh him? Oh, he'll be back. I promise on my millennia-old life that he'll return."
