There are plenty enough ways in constructed to turn its drawback into an advantage, e.g. Bloodghast and Cabal Therapy.

5/3 for 3 is nice, discard can be worked around (or welcomed) by a lot of decks.

Card of the Day, December 12th 2012,
Ah Avatar of Discord, one of the handful of creatures (or maybe a couple handfuls) that can, by themselves, win a game on or before Turn 7 just by attacking every turn. It all comes down to that Mana Cost/ Power Ratio. See the Ajani vs. Nicol Bolas version of Woolly Thoctar for more information.

Seriously? discard extractor demon and hit for 10 in the air by turn four.

God I love this thing.

I've seen this come out turn 1 with a Dark Ritual. Second scariest opening play I've ever seen.

(I've also seen Erayo, Soratami Ascendant flipped on turn 1... that was before we knew it was banned in 2 headed giant.)

Turn 1: Swamp, Dark Ritual, Avatar of Discord, discarding two fatties of choice (Demon of Death's Gate works well).
Turn 2: Exhume whatever monster you dropped earlier. Swing for 5.
Turn 3: Assault Strobe the Demon. Swing for 23 (28 total).

This is certainly not aPhyrexian Negator but an interesting successor nevertheless. While certainly being decent card during its time, it suffers from limited playability. There will certainly be times where you will find yourself with only this thing left in your hand, ironically slowing down hellbent decks at times.

you can cast up to 3 on your first turn, but none of them will stick because you will have nothing to discard

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
