So finally found a use for Orzhov Charm's bounce ability. Enchant this sucker up with aura's and if they try to remove it at some point, save him and all your sac triggers, along with another sac trigger as a goodbye present.

@Sel3l3e: I disagree with "few support spells." In a deck that takes advantage of this guy and Heroic, you've got a disgusting machine at your disposal. For example:

In color: Boon of Erebos, Scourgemark, Ordeal of Erebos. Even if they kill him in response to any of these spells, you're still at card parity and hopefully took something good out. It may not work as well against tokens but it works very well against hexproof and indestructibles.

Allied colors: Fate Foretold, and Aqueous Form, Ordeal of Porphorus. Outside of Theros, we have Madcap Skills and, my personal favorite, Hidden Strings. Yeah, that's right, repeatable destruction and evasion with a two card combo that keeps you at card parity.

Now, if you build a deck with other Heroics, well, the value just gets even crazier. Labyrinth Champion... (see all)

so cool that the best hero is black

Ironic that the agent is stronger than the Fates themselves.

My favorite card from Theros.
Running him in Orzhov but plays well in a variety of decks.
Nobody's yet mentioned Deviant Glee or my favorite, Ethereal Armor (great fun until Feb. '14).
I prefer enchantments with Agent and there's a bunch of 'em available, but instants like Gods Willing can catch an opponent off guard.
Lots of possibilities.

"Only weakness is that black has few support spells."-- Sel3l3e

Remember that aside from Insants and Sorceries, Auras will trigger Heroic as well.
And don't forget even creatures with Bestow can turn into Auras to trigger his effect.
I'm sure Theros, being an Enchantment-based cycle, will probably have provided us with a great amount of Heroic triggers in any color once it's complete.

Also, just because the mana cost of this card is double black doesn't mean you're not allowed to add another color to your deck for the support spells you like ;)

Meet Nighthowler opponents sac a creature and he gets a boost for each! Or Nighthowler does*. * Barring GY hate.

You could target him with a flat out removal spell if you really have to take care of a lone creature with hexproof.

He makes Hidden Strings amazing. That's saying a lot. Stolen Identity makes for a persistent increasing and hard to block threat.
