helm of the ghastlord, sure I'll pay one life per turn for enormous card advantage

Blue vamps? Sure.

Compare to Air elemental; Costs 1 less, but you lose 1 life each upkeep, and its UB instead of UU. 3.5

Just an amazing threat in U/B, and one of my personal favorites, as three of these bad boys won me the Ravnica draft. Other people passed it up because they saw the life-drain and that made them think it was a horrible card-until it was used against them.

its nice, it would be better if it costed UBB, still it has potential in a lifelink deck (so that the 1 life doesnt bother you).

all in all a decent card, not to be underestimated, since it can cause some trouble for your opponents.

Good, fun card.

Compare to Conundrum Sphinx as it's pretty much the only blue 4/4 flier for 4 without a real drawback.

Guys, this is still a strong, aggressively costed beater. 4/4 for 4 is as strong as any flier gets these days. Sure, most of them today don't get a drawback, but 1 life per turn is hardly painful.

This used to be cost efficient! Damn you, power creep :/

look at the freaking ART on that thing!

I wouldn't care if it was a 2/2 flier that hurt you for 2 and cost UB.

the art gets 5 stars. then again, it's Ravnica...you could use that argument on every card.

Ravnica: City of Guilds is probably my favorite place in the Multiverse. Any Magic movie that wants to be taken seriously should take place there. Very Magic-related location (unlike Lorwyn, Zendikar, or Kamigawa), potential for STUNNING visuals, and one of the few places it makes sense to find 'oh! another Planeswalker!' (besides Dominaria, of course)
