Boss limited flier for Orzhov. Or Dimir. Or any deck with black really. It may not be huge, but it's right on curve, maybe even a little above it.

I'm noticing an awful lot of flying for black in GTC. This seems like a solid pick to fill out your curve in limited.

Hmm...this isn't bad actually. Maybe it's better to have this than Syndic of Tithes in an extort deck for the 2cmc slot? I was opting for the latter at first, but then i realised that since your goal is bleeding, better have a weak flying that can potentially damage for 1 every turn rather than a a simple bear.

I agree, @Flyheight, possibly a little better than the curve. Kills 1/1 and still lives. Gives extort, solid utility.

Awesome evasion for Dimir, and i noticed that ciphering on weaker creatures make kill spells a tough decisions for opponents.

Extort matters. Cipher matters. This card works well with both in limited. Shadow Slice anyone?

Zubat here is great at whittling them down through both attacking and extortion, and your opponent will rarely leave a flying blocker for him, making him a great carrier for cipher spells, especially if they have to then waste removal on him. (Bonus points if you extort off both the initial cast and the cipher cast)

Damn good in Limited. I ran extortextortextort.dec in a draft with four of these guys and a few Syndic of Tithes and didn't regret it.

I like this card more than I should. It is my favourite card in my new Dimir deck. Sounds crazy but it is what my whole deck is based around. It's a Cipher/Extort Dimir deck. Cipher and Extort work very well togethor and this has evasion and when you can spam casting spells with Cipher and use those free spells to Extort, it gets pretty crazy.

I just got a cheap play set. I'm gonna try it on my multiplayer Necropotence deck.

Ordinarily, it wouldn't have a place among the much more aggressive black two-drops available, but against multiple opponents, I need to think long-term, and the ability to pay {B} for what is essentially 1 life loss to everyone and X card draws to me where X is the number of living opponents could mean winning the game.

My other two options for mono-black with extort are Syndicate Enforcer, which is unusable, and Crypt Ghast, which better but more expensive, so I will only go for the play set if the price is right and the Screecher here does its job as well as I expect him to.

Now if Dragon's Maze would bring out a {B} 1/1 or a {BB} 2/2 with evasion and Extort, it would be more fun for aggro-Necro. :)
