This guy and Notion Thief: new best friends.

Sure, your opponent draws first... thats why you could have Underworld Dreams in play

Yes, this guy suffers from the same problem as howling mine: your opponents will draw first.

That asides, he's huge for his mana cost. A 6/5 for 5 in black is way above the curve. On top of that, he's doing 2 damage per turn to your opponents. He's also quite resilient to removal:
1) He's black. Most black removal will not work on him.
2) He has 5 toughness. He's out of the regular burn range.

This leaves the more expensive red removal(fireball and its ilk) and white removal.

Without a doubt he's amazing in a deck that just wants to kill its opponent. Drawing 3 cards per turn will usually give you enough threats to play. On its own he can stop lots of creatures, and with some support(like Dauthi Embrace) he can quickly kill players.

He's also a demon, and demons require some kind of sacrifice. His price is heavy, giving your opponent a 2 for 1 situation. Still, it's worth it.

Would be pretty fun with psychic possession.

You'd be losing 2 life and drawing 5 cards every time you and your opponent each took a turn, and they'd be losing 2 life and drawing 3.

And did I mention you just got a mono-black 6/5 for 5?

This guy is awesome! Not only is he a 6/5 beast stick for 5 mana but his ability kills your opponent while giving you extra cards. If you're running him in a mono-black deck along with Life Gain Removal cards like Consume Spirit and Tendrils of Corruption, then he won't be a hassle at all. On the other hand if you have an Underworld Dreams or two in play, he's going to tear your opponent to pieces.

All things considered, he's pretty damn good in a Mono Black deck...

O Seizan, you're such a pervert

In black, you have plenty of ways to keep your opponent's hand low even if they draw that many cards. Especially if you make a deck with blue as well.

I wanna get my hands on him and run it in a underworld dreams deck...
they'll be much more to it than that one combo my main issue though is killing myself over it...
like someone knowing they just have to beat me within 2 points of death than 0

I was looking at this for my G/B Spirit deck, but my deck is slow, so I'd be forced to discard. It's also slow so any damage is to be avoided if possible :/

Anyways, its a great card. Everyone gets a sign in blood and its just a pain in the ass to kill.
