1 star for playability compared to Dead Weight, but 5 stars for flavor.

3 mana on top of Dead Weight just to give -1/-0. Yikes.

Continue, you bring up a good point...

If adding "Dead Weight" to a creature gives it -2/-2, why does adding the weight of the WHOLE UNDERWORLD only weaken the creatures power? Is the underworld so underpopulated that it bears nearly no burden?

Also, before anyone takes my thunder, if you give this to Crypt Ghast, all the masks implode on impact.

I guess the weight of hubris is what led to the ridiculously heavy mana cost?

It's a shame the amazing artwork and flavor is wasted on such a bad card

I know creature removal is lacking in this set but I'm just not sure I can ever justify spending 4 mana to get rid of a X/2.

This card isn't for killing creatures. It's for weakening a powerful creature that has a bunch of bestowed auras on it.

You can take the aura'd up creature out of the equation without killing it and letting giving them another body when the bestowed aura falls off.

Decent in limited.

Such a cool name wasted on such a poor card.
Sometimes you make me mad wizards...

Maybe it would have been pushing too far, but you'd think the Weight of the Underworld would give -X/-X where X is the number of creatures in either your graveyard or all graveyards. As it is right now, Alkmenos has nothing to really complain about.

Good artwork. The card sucks.
