"Worse than Nighthawk" is about as insulting as "Worse than Mike Tyson."

This has its place in limited, and it's always nice to see lesser-used creature types get some love.

Damn, son, now we're comparing it to Baleful Strix? That's not even fair.

Nighthawk isn't a common.

I wonder if this will be viable in MBC in Pauper. No Nighthawk of course, bu this is still excellent in Limited, and potentially viable in pauper. Wish it cantripped or something though.

It is a ***atrice therefore it should get 5 stars
I just hope people don't take sharpies to it....
Remember Giant ***roach

Ain't no Nighthawk, but this still trades with a lot of things and has some solid evasion.

WotC's way of telling the makers of the ***atrice program to get wrecked.

@ DarthParallax:
It quite seems that Theros has a "greece mytology" theme, so maybe it could have something like a ***atrice Lord... I think it should be appropriate!
Also, the art is great, I think... Not epic, but not everything needs to be super-fantastic! This one is clear and to the point!

It reminds me a little of Keening Banshee: both 2/2 flying for 2BlackBlack that can kill something. Both can be a nice card, without being that nonsense of Nighthawk...

Alright, I was way too hard on this card out the gate. 2Black for a 2/2 flyer is fair, and adding Black for deathtouch is about right. 3Black seems like a better cost than 2BlackBlack in this case, but what can you do? Sure, this is far worse than Nighthawk, but Nighthawk is far better than he needed to be. 3.5/5

edit: See also Insatiable Harpy.

I am glad that WotC has realised the error of its ways and is trying to atone for the creation of the abomination known only as Vampire ***hawk.

@Mode: A ***atrice is neither a bird nor a dragon, so why would they do that? Not to mention that dragons are a rare creature type in Black, especially at this mana cost.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
