I think the point here is that you would pump AFTER you connect. if they do not block, then in response you pump. this guy is great, I might consider him in my infect, even though he costs 4.

Wow, it's an imp... AND a great card! At once!

I think the universe collapsed on itself and then instantly recreated itself from scratch when this card was printed. Oh, and hell froze over.

He causes the same battlefield shennanigans that Phyrexian Ghoul does. He's almost the same card.

He costs 4 instead of 3 because A) he's got flying and B) black cards are no longer designed around Dark Ritual.

And he only gets +1/+1 for his sac ability instead of +2/+2 BUT he's got infect, so it's basically the same boost if all you're looking at is progressing the game towards the end.

More importantly, in my mind, he makes Necropede much better.

I run a casual deck that uses Phyrexian Ghoul + Perilous Myr which seriously complicates the board state. The Imp/Necropede combo is functionally identical.

God bless sacrifice outlets.

@Hyroko - the problem is they may use removal in response to the ability. Red in particular can easily bolt or even shock it after the sacrifices but before the ability resolves.

great when you can pump out a bunch of myr tokens or thopter assemblies, but by then why would you need this guy to win the game, just overwhelm them with weenies!

Damn you dirty Phyrexians... you took the beautiful, innocent, benevolant Chimney Imp, and you tuned him into a bloodthirsty monster!! How do you bastards sleep at night!?
