It'd be nicer if it gave you a choice, but it's still fairly decent.

Brood of ***roaches is nice in a deck heavy in sacrifice outlets and with a solid way to gain life the life lost to the recurring effect becomes very insignificant. Obviously it isn't a five star worthy chase rare or even a great four to five star worthy uncommon but because its usefulness in certain decks, rather casual decks, it desrves an average rating.

I don't know who has rated it so poorly that it sits as an one star card when it is clearly worthy of two and a half to three stars.

For effects like this, see Endless ***roaches. No pain, and no delay.

Comes free with certain apartment buildings.

Very very flavorful.
The artwork on this card is really great; I miss these artwork, which were DRAWN, and not made with computer graphics. I'm not saying that modern artworks are bad, of course; I'm just saying that nowadays artworks are always very detailed, but sometimes these old simple drawings have more expressiveness than a very detailed artwork, due to their "at-first-glance-impression" effect.
Concerning the card, it is very particular and it's the perfect chump-blocker. As for the ability itself, I see combo with Nether Traitor (and some other combos involving it) and Field of Souls...

Mana-less self-recursion is always good, even if the package is a little dinky.

I concur with Verdant Force, this is at least a 2.5 as an engine piece if nothing else.

Situationally a very good card: If you play in a sacrifice deck with Endrek Sahr the ability to play it from your hand again and again make it better than reassembling skeleton because it generates two 1/1 tokens each time you play it rather than simply being able to be immediately sacrificed again. Not to mention, it comes into play untapped and ready to chump block.

That is the strangest metaphorical flavor text I have ever read. What in the world.
