Thinking of making a myr reservoir deck. Just use plague myr and perilous myr and this thing as a sac outlet. can win all on its own, the rest of the deck is counters,card draw, and removal.

pulled this in two headed giant, my partner was no this is shit, and i made him play it, then when we absolutely dominated the first game, almost completely thanks to this card, he wanted to keep it ^^

it is a very good card

Ridiculously good in infect. When I didn't have artifact hate, it blew me out. Especially awful with Core Prowler: sac it, hit a X/2, then proliferate the counter and kill it.

And with my luck, get it back with Morbid Plunder next turn and go through it again. Raargh.

As its most basic, this is direct damage for the last few points in infect Limited, and it's great just for that.

Seems like lots of fun with BR Vampires. Sacrificing Bloodghast all over the place after he attacks, with Kalastria Highborn to enhance the effect. Further, we can steal a creature with Act of Treason or Mark of Mutiny and instead of giving it right back, we can sac it for one more damage! Better than Viscera Seer? Maybe not considering Viscera needs no mana to sac... Still sounds fun. It's a fun card.

Wow this card's rating is way too low. First-pick card in limited and it's actually creeping in to some rogue decks in constructed.

@HippyRei: Mogg Fanatic is/was rated higher, because:
- it costs 1 mana, instead of 2
- it has a relevant creature type (goblin)
- it has 1 power, so can attack (this one is 0/1 when it enters the battlefield)
- under the old rules, it could kill toughness 2 creatures

This card an't that great in constructed. The +0/+1 part are lousy, and for the pinging it is far too expensive, with it's 2 mana equip cost.

When I first saw this, I was not impressed. But then I realized the synergy with infect! Pair this with Trigon of Infestationor maybe Carrion Call. Or just throw this on any old infect creature and attack your opponent with it. If they block it, you sac and give them a poison counter to the face. Or even if they don't block, you can give them an extra poison counter.

A great infect utility card. You can even use it with something like Thrummingbird.

doesn't work with thrummingbird since the card specifies "combat damage".

Won me all games it showed up on the Pre Release. This is a bomb in limited. Recursive removal and direct damage with infect.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
