Does no one notice how supremely cool it looks? Sure, if you use its ability, your opponent suddenly has an unblockable 4/4 that you paid six mana for. But look at it! Even the name... "Witch Engine"...

Homeward Path gets it back in an easy re-useable manner.

Should cause a little Pestilence. :)

Activate his ability, then use Sacrifice... +9 black mana! (Counting the one you had to use for the Sacrifice). Plague Wind might be a good target for all that mana.

Combos with Umbral Mantle for infinite Black.

Other than that, it's kind of funny in EDH to gain allies. I just can't imagine a black hug deck, though...

nice threat that fuels my game-ending exsanguinate

The Witch Engines were so cool. I'm sad we didn't see them return in New Phyrexia.

Is it possible to use his ability and sacrifice him?
Because its ability is no mana ability and targeted it goes on the stack, so the answer must be "YES".

Flavorfully, I don't get it at all. The Witch Engines are involved in Phyrexian machinations on a deep level...it feels like the card for them should be something more epic. And moreover, how does something making a bunch of mana for you make it defect to the other side? I just don't understand.
