@Sironos: because that was back in the old days of Magic. Back then 5/7 creatures were almost unheard of. Not like now, when even common green creatures have more than that. Still, I have to agree with the weird mechanic of tapping him for a stellar 1 mana when you could be attacking for 5 damage.

How is a human advisor so tough anyways?

What IS this?! Oddly, for the time, a 5/7 black and blue creature for 7 with no drawbacks was not bad. But that nutty ability is just so out there... Because you really intend to summon this guy to tap for 1 black? The art and flavor text are fun at least!

Even at the time, when creatures were different, the bizarre tap for one black mana ability on a seven-casting-cost 5/7 creature made no sense. You gotta wonder what they were thinking when they designed him.

When your up all night on a vodka binge and work as a card designer you birth this peice

This card makes no sense, why does a 7 mana tap to produce 1 mana?
Why would something like that be deemed legendary?
What does burning paper have to do with producing black mana?
Why does a legendary creature look like a peasent who just awoke?
and finally:
WTF does that flavour text about legitimate political violence have to do with anything?

The ability is hilarious for a 7 mana creature...

Wow... and they really had to make this guy Legendary?

Everything about this card is absurd.

Yeah, I really need an extra black mana when I can afford to play a freaking 7 cost. Seriously, what were they thinking?

Epic fail card.
