Combos with {3}{B}{B}{B}{B}{B} and losing

i see why she's an outcast- NO ONE LIKES HER.

Every time I see this card, I realize that in its place in the booster pack, I could have gotten any other uncommon and I would have been satisfied.
To illustrate, I bought a box of Kamigawa boosters back when I had more money than brains. I have 4 of these from that box. I have 1 Sensei's Divining Top.

That hurts.

The only possible use for this is if you want your life to be lowered. Magus of the Mirror? Throw in something like Phyrexian Unlife to sink below 0 and score an instant kill. But I'm sure there are better enablers for that sort of combo

She acts as a life-waster so you get to lose less life when you cast your doomsday. Take that!

At least Chimney Imp flies.

A black Samurai? Bushido 2? Regeneration? Sign me up. It sounds awesome on paper, doesn't it?

Then, suddenly, this happened. They went wrong at every turn. Overcosted, underpowered, and a ridiculously overpriced regeneration cost. Who would ever pay that to rescue thing? A regeneration cost like that might fly on something like Phyrexian Obliterator, but not for a blocker that occasionally pokes for a single point of damage.

As of 6:03 EST on February 8, 2011, this is THE WORST CARD OF ALL TIME!!!

Black will do anything to win, therefore it will pay Black and bleed you for 5 to keep your opponent on a 20-turn clock.
This makes Wood Elemental, Aven Trooper, and Viashino Skeleton look good. And it will get you killed faster than any of the aforementioned creatures.

I'd say this is worse than chimney imp.

So much about this card just doesn't make sense. Ok, add 1 CMC because it's a black samurai, fair enough. Ok, don't let it have regen for B because it's a human, not a zombie or troll or anything.

But even given those harsh restrictions, which would make the card pretty bad anyway, it should only be, say, CMC 3 1/1 bushido 2 with regen for 1B, or 0 mana and 3 life or something.

Seriously, what happened with this card? It's not just that it's bad, it's also /bizarre/. When do you ever seen a regen cost like that? Why does black get a bushido 2 1/1 anyway? What was the imagined purpose of this card, other than to be OBVIOUSLY bad?

Maybe that's it. Maybe they realised it was a bit naughty making cards that look good to newbies but are actually terrible, like wooden sphere, and decided to make a card that was offputting to EVERYONE.

Don't even get me started on the fact that this is uncommon. I guess we should be glad it wasn't a rare,... (see all)
