The art is rather horrifying. Imagine finding yourself in an Esper sewer, only rounding a corner to see a decomposing head staring and chittering at you as its lanky, distended body suddenly shambles into view... Creepy.

I run 3 of this guy in a budget esper deck of mine, and he's quite the beast, I definitely think he's underrated.

He combos nicely with alot of artifacts. Borderposts, Puppet Conjourer, Thopter Foundry and Esperzoa all help to create lots of ETB and LTB triggers.Etherium Sculptor helps keep (re)casting artifact spells on the cheap and Courier's capsule gets the card draw.

Is it the most effective deck out there? No. Is it alot of fun? For five dollars it's hella fun!

This thing seems like it should be 2WhiteBlack I don't see the blue in it. Good card. Works well with cards like Courier's Capsule, Executioner's Capsule, Dispeller's Capsule, and Scourglass.

The only blue insect. One of only three white insects.

A fixed Disciple of the Vault? Sure, why not.

Not a Disciple of the Vault, but not completely unplayable.

I actually enjoy using this card. I like to imagine playing this with the esperzoa/parasitic strix combo.

This little beauty is an un-sung hero of the Esper assault force. There are several cards that have excellent synergy with him:

Sharding Sphinx - Make tokens, do damage. Tokens die, do damage. Rinse and repeat.
Master Transmuter - Bounce your creature to save him, bring in a tougher creature, and hit your opponent for 2 points of damage in the process. Oh, and power up your Glaze Fiend while you're at it.
Sharuum the Hegemon - If you're not doing the Sharuum/Sharuum combo yet, why not ping someone for damage as it pulls something from the Graveyard?

Not an amazing creature, but certainly a very good one who can unexpectedly tack on some serious damage while your opponent focuses on tougher threats.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
