One of my absolute favorite pieces of Magic art.

I also like the mechanics of the card itself a lot, even the discard penalty can be abused.

Only problem is he is utterly useless as a blocker and not boltproof. But I guess a paladin serving Lim-Dûl would know only attack and death...

Haha great art. Really illustrates "Come and get it, you corpses that know not that ye are dead yet"

One of my favorite art pieces. Flavorwise it's really awesome---I imagine this grim knight who invokes a terrible battle rage when anyone stops his charge, but if he manages to get through with nobody stopping him, all he really does is strangle you with a life-snuffing black spell.

this one's dying for some flavor text. come on! 3.5/5 because he's vulnerable to lightning bolt AND swords to plowshares... and he doesn't beat your opponent swiftly enough, even though he can. what a lazy prick. he doesnt even give you 6 life when he gets the swords.

i still hate that upkeep cost, but at least you can work around it by using some reanimation spells.

This is a sweet discard outlet. I want this for my Crosis the Purger Reanimator EDH.

nice idea, but actualy kinda bad in practice. No one blocks unless they can kill it, so it ends up being a 4 drop that does 4 damage and requires you to dich a card everyturn. Yes it's "fog-proof" until they figure out that blocking it than fogging works.

As a lover of somewhat convoluted mechanics and cards that have "middle-of-the-road" quality, this card has a certain appeal. I kind of like the general idea. Used right, with the strategies achilleselbow mentioned, he's fairly okay.

However, the big issue I have with this guy is the flavour. Why, exactly, does he get this large boost in power when he fights a creature? Some kind of battle frenzy? Why can he not be as badass all the time? Does he have to stop and catch his breath afterwards, shrinking down to a 0/3? It's a little hard to piece together why he's effectively a 4/3, 0/3, or 6/6 depending on how he happens to feel at the time.

This card's abilities are confusing, but he behaves like a 4/4 with Bushido 2 that can't block very well. For 4 mana that's a good deal, but the discard can be a problem. I prefer Molten-Tail Masticore, but this is a reasonable choice for a Knight deck or a way to show off complicated old cards.

This guy is just a pile of neat effects. You even get a nice little card if you can't pay his upkeep. This is an example of "cool and completely playable with a bit of support," rather than "obviously good but painfully uninteresting."
