Unless I'm mistaken with MTG canon, shouldn't it be a Legendary Creature, called Burke?

Great card. 6 power for 6 mana is fine, one black to regenerate it is great too, and making them lose 6 while the champion is in play is even better.
Not to mention that when you play False Cure when the champ gets finally killed, they lose another 6.

Everlasting Torment and Forsaken Wastes as mono-black-friendly variations on Leyline of Punishment and Sulfuric Vortex.

You could also target yourself and use Boon Reflection, Sanguine Bond, and Tainted Sigil...as if the latter two aren't dangerous enough already.

@Japicx: Rain of Gore would not work, since your opponent doesn't control Laquatus's Champion. Of course, you could use a Bazaar Trader to "fix" that "problem." If you also run Sulfuric Vortex, you can make sure they can't gain the life back by killing it before you Donate it. (The combo will still work because you get to choose which replacement effect to use.)

The grammar is right, the apostrophe and s after a name that ends with s is used when you're refering to the name of a famous person or entity, in this case old Ambassador Laquatus

Pandemonium for twice the fun.

Furnace of Rath only doubles damage. The life loss from playing Champion isn't doubled, so that's "only" 18 life lost.

Six mana for a card that deals six, just by coming into play is good. Six mana for a 6/3 with one mana regeneration is good. Six mana for a 6/3 with regeneration for one mana and deals six damage hwen it comes into play is crazy! 5/5

The champion champions 6 lives!

You could simply add wound reflection instead of the furnace, in which case, the life loss WOULD be doubled, however, i'll admit that the two extra mana for the reflection can be a little crippling since red/black is mana accel and not ramp...

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
