This looks like a better card than a 2.44 rating.
Slap a Whispersilk Cloak on it, or just make it unblockable a myriad of ways, and your opponent is gonna be hurting. It's also a great way of killing an opponent's shrouded creatures.

He's like a slightly worse Ashling the Extinguisher. But at Uncommon it's a very nice ability to see.

All these morph-linked "deal combat damage" triggers benefit a lot from unblockable effects.

Blind Zealot is very similar to this card. At 1BlackBlack it is one 1 cheaper to cast; When he hits the player, target creature is destroyed, which goes either way, as you get to choose his victim, but all of his shrouded and indestructibles are untouchable. Also this card has the morph ability which allows him to, theoretically, sneak his first hit in, before the defender realizes the repercussions. Finally his flip cost is 2 higher than Blind Zealot, so there is a big difference in mana. I gave Blind Zealot a 4.5/5, I believe Cabal Executioner deserves a 4/5.

Another card that works well with Rogue's Passage.

@Speednat You forget one little thing. The Zealot dies when its ability is used while the Executioner here just keeps chugging away. The Zealot is a better on its own as it is cheaper with more reliable evasion but has less potential to be repeated via unblockability or something. They are both solid 3.5 star cards.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
