The advantage this brings over the specters is that its effect happens when it isn't blocked, as opposed to when it deals combat damage (which is how most of the specters function). This means multiple Cumber Stones or a Meishin, the Mind Cage doesn't protect your opponent from this Nightstalker.

Is the artist credit a typo of "Sam Wood"? Wood has drawn 17 cards, but Woods has drawn only two.

A Portal II Hypnotic Specter for one extra Black and without flying. Nothing beats the original Hypnotic Specter! Decent artwork.

God this card sucks. Even compared to Abyssal Specter. For B instead of 1, you can have 1 more toughness AND flying.

Compared to top tier specters such as Hypnotic, this is beyond an abomination. Even being Portal doesn't save this piece of junk.

Best CMC 4 specter is still reserved for Shimian Specter, hands down.

Artwork is fantastic. Is probably better to use under some very odd circumstances, such as with reconnaissance. If they can't kill it by blocking it you may get them to stop blocking. Also, preventing damage doesn't stop this guy, which is a nice advantage.
