actually, it sucks compared to essence drain, since essence drain can hit creatures, and essence drain is horrible anyway. Compare it to something like wildheart invoker, and i just don't like it.

Well if you have like 59 lands you can kill an enemy turn three!

Oh, wait.

I like this new Invoker cycle.

Again they're just rather mediocre commons, but at least this one is more useful than his pitious Zombie ancestor.

I was force to win a sealed match with this card... not sure if I like this set.

It'd probably be a bit better if you run multiple Training Grounds. And in Rise of the Eldrazi it's probably a good idea to run a few anyway.

Man, the other invokers are so much better, black got screwed in that cycle.

This card is so awesome with Sanguine Bond... bueno.

Very good in limited formats, obviously very vulnerable in constructed. Still, with a Vampire Nocturnus this guy gets to a ridiculous 5/2 flyer for 1.... which is real good.

@twiddleman12 training ground doesn't reduce activated abilities to zero. No less than 1 though that would be a really cheap ping.

3/1 and color-light makes it pretty usable in vampires I think with Stromkirk captain.

Makes for a safe late-game option and an aggro midgame.
