Good 1 drop with not a devestating drawback

Honestly not a bad card in a sacrifice deck. Usually a creature in the graveyard you can remove to it, or, barring that (or if you want to save that creature), you can sacrifice it to a Fallen Angel or Nantuko Husk.

It's basically a black Delver of Secrets. Only much harder to use effectively.

You're welcome for the bizarrely obvious statement.

Definitely not a bad card, and the ability to discard it can help you both to keep a recently played bird alive, or to help you get threshold.

Hey, a black flier that doesn't cost 4 mana

Volrath's Stronghold and Lightning Greaves or Dawn of the Dead is a good way to use these flyers.

But for its "discard anytime" ability to find a good combo is pretty hard:
Library of Leng prevents you from losing by drawing a card from empty library.
Mostly you would need it to fulfill conditions like Hellbent and Threshold abilities.
Additionally I want to name some card that don't have these keywords but have card-number conditions:
Brink of Madness, Dark Suspicions, Dread Slag, Ensnaring Bridge, Scalding Tongs.
Or make some effects last longer: Decaying Soil or Forbidden Crypt(remember to send it to the graveyard before playing that)

sadly you can't use its ability when using Liar's Pendulum.

This thing's value just soared thanks to Varolz, the Scar-Striped.

That discard ability should be rewritten as follows.

Discard this card:.

Synergizes with itself :D

(Well that was probably the main reason to have the discard ability, which can easily find other uses.)

And it's a bird...yeah, you'll normally run a UW deck for that tribal,
but a flying 3/2 one-drop just seems to tempting not to try out.

I like how the rulings refers to the 'players can't reorder their graveyards' rule. "This is a little-known rule because cards that care about the order of cards in your graveyard havn't been printed in years."
