I had him in a deck deck about nefarious lich. The deck used early on lots of black spells which cost life but speed up the deck. As such I had this guy most of the time early on as a 4/4 wall for two mana, and if the life difference became too great I attacked a few times. Later on I played the lich and then my life total didn't matter anyway.

He got worse with M10 though since you can't manaburn yourself anymore to keep control.

Also stops aggro decks dead in their tracks. :)

I have a feeling that if the card just had the word "Defender" written on it instead it would be rated higher.
If you're playing a control deck, you are going to have less life than the aggro deck. He's a beefy blocker. It's that simple

Doesn't seem to have much practical use, but creates a fun dynamic in group games in casual play

I don't understand why you would use this card since you probably wont have control of it if your winning so all it does is help out the other player. But I guess if your beating your opponent so badly that you want to help them out then this is the card for you.

Looks like a juicy creature to have in infect decks...

Not Bad Coming By How I Never Have Heard Of This Guy Im Gonna Say Hes Totally Underrated

I am curious as to the usefulness of this card. Anyone know of a good way to use it?

It could be worth using in a mainly black suicide deck, but other than that doesn't really fit with white.

Play with Death's Shadow. If he's in your deck, you will already be running on very low life. Also, if running in an Ad Nauseam, he is a controlled way to lower your life.

No reason to risk so much.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
