If it costed 2BlackBlack It would be more balanced

Great in a discarder deck, but only if you have some dark rituals to make it playable early on.

Pretty slow - real discard decks would benefit more from Thoughtseize, Duress, Extirpate, Hymn To Tourach, Hypnotic Specter, Shimian Specter, Megrim. The 5th spot would be more useful going to a card like Fugue instead.

I run this, and you're right it is slow, but it's a great augmentation. Let's say you have two Megrim's in play and you attack with Hypnotic Specter. The opponent has to take it to the face because they don't have flying. The opponent takes 2 to the face from the Specter, and have to toss a card due to its ability. This triggers the two Megrims for 2 damage apiece; for a total of 6 damage.

Reply that same scenario with Larceny on deck as well; now when the Specter attacks it does 2 to the opponent itself, trigger its own ability AND Larceny which results in the opponent having to discard 2 cards; which triggers both Megrim's twice. Larceny ups the damage from 6 to 10, and further locks down the opponent by causing them to loose the second card.

It's a great augmentation in a Blue Black deck where you've got enough counters to protect your enchantments.

Love this card in my token swarm EDH, I can get it out pretty easily, then keep almost a lock on the board by pinging every one with a couple of 1/1 token fliers.
