Fun fact... the flavour text is actually referring to the horse.
That artwork is so badass. I love how faceless the taxman is.

Works surprisingly well with Boros. A good basic blocker, vigilance synergizes with Battalion, and Extort can be hilarious.

One of my favorite Extort cards. Pretty fairly costed. Vigilance makes it an attacker when needed, and it's 2/4 makes it a good blocker. And it has extort. Doesn't die to Lightning Bolt.

Extort is a dual ability that appears equally in both black and white, like first strike is dual colored ability that appears equally in both white and red. (see boros recruit, Tundra Wolves, Striking Sliver) In fact there's no reason at all it should say "pay w/b", since only white and black cards have the cost... It should have just been printed as "pay an extra 1,..." Except for one reason:

Mark Rosewater specifically requested the design team to make Extort have the hybrid w/b cost in it so that extort cards could only be used in white AND black EDH decks, not one or the other.

Or, more accurately, he designed it so that the people in charge of the EDH format would remove the ridiculous (in his mind) rule that hybrid cards can't be played in mono colored EDH decks.

I managed to bribe this guy into working for Boros for my prerelease. Thankfully, he took his payment out of my opponent's life, thanks to all the small creatures I kept casting.

Every time I activate his extort ability, I use it as an opportunity to remind my opponent that he needs to call his mom, or return that overdue library book, or file his taxes this week, or dust his shelves. As you can imagine, I'm the most popular person in my group.

Just what Orzhov wants: A good defender with Extort to bleed the opponent out, not to mention the ability to attack if needed
