Kinda of like a 2-powered unblockable creature that needs to pay mana to attack.

-and enables inspiration

-and relies on the attached creature not dying

-and counts as an enchantment for things that care about that

-and also enables heroic

Maybe not so much.

This is actually fairly good in Limited. It will let you keep hitting your opponent for 2 damage while benefiting from Inspired. Pairs well with Pain Seer.

This cycle is pretty weak over all, but this one and the red one do seem fairly solid.

I would have preferred the effect to be manaless and cause 1 life loss. Still, nice for heroic and inspired in limited.

i stableized at 2 life at pre-release with enough guys finally out to block and swing back for the win. he drew this, put it on a random guy, and killed me. Did NOT see that comming. sonuva ***.

Is it efficient? Nope.

Is it useful? Yup. Not a fantastic card, but if you're going black Heroic or Inspired at all an easy pick in Limited.

Also consider Servant of Tymaret.

Oh, I didn't realize John Leguizamo worked for Erebos.

Heartstone or Training Grounds is a great help to lower the cost of activation for this. Also, some good creatures to use this on are Soliton, and Pili-Pala. They both have the ability to untap themselves, enabling a second tap and more life loss to the opponent if you have the mana.

I think there could be a deck here somewhere, with a few other strategies added to it. Perhaps the Pili-Pala, Paradise Mantle, Training Grounds/Heartstone infinite mana combo. Add Cyclonic Rift and Mizzium Mortars/Pyroclasm/Electrickery for defense, some card draw/search like think twice and Diabolic Tutor, and maybe some alternate win-cons with the infinite mana. A creature constantly tapping and untapping to deal ... (see all)

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
