I saw this card for the first time today and I am still speechless...
A BLACK 2/2 common with BBcmc is already above average and you get a edict for 1 more??? AND it is a vampire... I so need two playsets of this... 5/5

Most annoying black card I've ever seen.

"Yay I finally got a big creature out!"

I have 5-color controldeck, and this one gives me a lot of trouble. That sacrifice makes it so powerful, a lot better than Doomblade-effect would make and It's only 3 mana. My Countersqualls and and Vines of Vastwood won't protect against this one, so only thing I can use against these is Thought Hemorrhage and that slows me a lot. And this works also against other black creatures. Only minus is BBB. Maybe someone could think this as a good thing? Maybe best card in set?

Hmm, also I don't like the thing it's a vampire. Zendikar is filled with vampire's, so you don't need to know how to make a deck, you just throw those "cool" vampires in and there you go. And that deck will definetely work quite a well. For me, that's not an option. I'd like to design an unique deck, something that might not work, but It's not copied somewhere. And that is a great minus in Zendikar. There's landfall and there's vampires, both foredesigned and very well working. Thx

This guy is so ace! Way above the curve! Badass all around!

Of course sacrifice is great because it's not targeted, but outside of standard I might still prefer Nekrataal in a lot of cases. First strike, more splashable, and you get to choose the creature.

Wizards should teach themselves what to do with mana costs when combining cards. Diabolic Edict + a 2/2 should cost 4.

Wizards should also teach themselves that kicker is supposed to be a mana sink, not a required cost.

Great card, and very annoying.
