Large black creature with only advantageous abilities and a reason for having it in your opening hand ... awesome.

If you reveal this card in multiplayer, you're going to get a lot of hate :3

How is this guy getting so much hate? Of all the chancellors, this guy is actually the most solid. None of his abilities are conditional, and the first ability helps you pay for phyrexian mana early in the game. Plus, he's a vampire.. as in perfect for a life drain deck with blood tribute and malakir bloodwitch. For all intents and purposes, he's a better baneslayer, albeit that also makes it cost 2 more mana. With the amount of pro vampire cards running around right now there should be an easy way to fit him into a vampire deck somewhere, either red/black or green/black.. or jund colors? Make with the deck building people. Get creative!

@djiflo: Take a look at Sengir Vampire, Mephidross Vampire, and most other old-school vampires.

Turn 0: Reveal, get some life.
Turn 1: Draw, go. Discard Chancellor of the Dross.
Turn 2: Swamp, Reanimate, lose 7 life.
Turn 3: Swing, gain 6, have more than starting life.

EDIT: @Atali, that's your net swing in single player. I usually play multiplayer, where the life swing would be greater, so I left it open to interpretation. And your combo is faster, but also requires more cards in hand. I almost always draw-go if I've got a Reanimate and a fatty in my opening hand. This is just a fatty that gains the life back.

A great reanimation target for The Mimeoplasm. 6/6 flying lifelink commander damage by itself is no small deal, and that amount is in turn pumpable to absurd amounts.
Plus, the chancellor effect is painful in multiplayer (assuming you can draw it in your opening hand out of 100 cards).

Chance @ free Blood Tithe and a 6/6 flying lifelink for 7 mana is fair. Blood Tithe is 4 mana alone people.. 4/5. Favorite Chancellor too.

Cards like this are why Lord of the Pit sees little to no play.

-1/-1, swap trample for lifelink, but remove the drawback and add on a random "starts the game" ability.

A very solid black flyer, and while overlooked in favor other other things (Rune-scarred Demon, etc.), well worth playing.
