This card is freakin amazing, enough said. This is a very good mana engine in the right deck.

Combos quite nicely with Yawgmoth's Bargain to fuel Tendrils of Agony, for instance.

this would be so good for madness if it was just cheaper to cast.

I don't think the text is ironic, just phyrexian. What we would see as mutilations, the phyrexians would see as 'upgrades.'

@Forgeling If you discard it and then cast Animate Dead, it's a bargain. With Entomb and such you can get it out early in the game.

@Krytnyt I think it's trying to be "ironic."

I don't get the flavortext. Is it a pun, trying to be funny? That's common in Urzablock. But what is the double meaning, then?
Is it serious flavor, and Priest of Yawgmoth is a guy who likes to be mutilated by his pets?

This guy reads: Madness costs you pay cost B less to play.

Think about it. Mana abilities do not use the stack. You discard the card as part of the cost, then before madness can trigger (as it is a triggered ability), you get the mana. Immediately. No stack, none of that waiting to resolve stuff. You immediately use that mana to PLAY the card with madness that you just discarded, because madness will trigger after you get the mana.

Bog Witch can do the same amazing thing.

Seems not bad to me. Expensive, sure, but it's a fairly strong black flyer with a fairly good ability.

Nice in EDH with Enter the Infinite and Exsanguinate. Risky, but dramatic.
