I can't wait to play this with Furnace Celebration so that I can make my opponent discard 2 and take 2 damage at instant speed on turn 7. Chimney Imp ought to be feeling jealous right now.

@CollectiveC It's Chimney Imp 2.0

Normally I would agree with you. Good example of them screwing up an unknown mechanic was Arcbound Ravager. So yeah, adding a bit extra to the cost is a nice so they can dip their toe in the water so to speak.

This, on the other hand, is just plain dumb. Instant speed discard isn't something new, just something they avoid. There have been a few in recent sets (Esper Charm and cycled Resounding Scream for example) but they haven't broken anything. I think what they want to avoid is another lockdown method. Discard their hand then instant speed their draw each turn. Wizards hates lockdown/combo decks because it takes skilled players to fight them off, meaning it could potentially lose them money on new players rage-quiting.

Back to this card, if it was just as it with "Tap, sacrifice Dementia Bat: ..." it would be on par with the usual limited-only commons each set has. An interesting alternative would have bee... (see all)

Believe it or not, I once nearly beat my opponent with this piece of crap. He had no flying or reach creatures, so I was dealing 2 damage every turn while my Amphin Cutthroats and Bird Maidens blocked the attacks from his hoard of zombies. And when he tried to Victim of Night my Dementia Bat, I simply tapped five and sacrificed it, forcing him to discard the last two cards in his hand.
Honestly, if he had played that Endless Ranks of the Dead one turn later, I would have killed him w/ my Dementia Bat.

If I want a black flyer that sometimes makes my opponent discard two cards, I rather take silent specter.

Ladies and gentlemen, Chimney Imp V. 2.0!

I do understand that its mana cost is a little high, but two payment of five mana is certainly better than one payment of ten. Also, those of you calling it "the next Chimney Imp" are completely stupid. Chimney Imp kills nothing. Dementia Bats can take down two cards at instant speed. Why is instant speed so important? It steels your opponents' draws, putting you ahead in cards. Whether it's buying you time to improve your board state or keeping your opponent from improving their own, it will certainly be a worthwhile investment. I built a deck around using Funeral Charm and Piracy Charm that, once emptying my opponent's hand, is hard-pressed to lose. The Bats will be a valuable addition.

Impressive art and good flavour text... Such a pity that the card is a waste because of it demented mana cost. Something tells me Azax-Azog is not going to be much succesful. The similarity with Chimney Imp is striking.

I like how this is rated lower than Chimney Imp. This isn't Chimney Imp anyway. This is a bat, not an Imp.
