Solid 1 drop. A 1/1 for 1 mana that gives all your spells a kicker cost to drain 1 life is pretty neat. No drawback here. Second ability might even be useful to finish off a planeswalker. Cast Liliana of the Veil and force me to sacrifice? I'll pay that 2 life to kill her any day

The counter-removal is dandy, but a one-drop with Extort alone is going to be a dangerous force in Limited.

@DeckMechanic

I think they where more worried about Glacial Chasm then Dark Depths.

Guys. One-drop Extort and counter removal? That's a lot for one creature.

Why the nonland clause? Would it be so broken? the thrull art design in this set is so dope.

Combos well with Geralf's Messenger. As if I needed another reason to hate that card already.

Dark Depths shenanigans?

There was a card called Vampire Hexmage printed at some point...

@DeckMechanic

This is essentially a three card combo with Dark Depths. You need some sort of untap deal to really accelerate it. Technically Crypt Ghast is more dangerous, because Dark Depths has good synergy with ramp.

I'm kind of actually hoping that the non-land clause hints at gates being playable after Dragon's Maze. I would be really happy with playable common dual lands.

Non-land clause is to prevent Dark Depths shenanigans.

1/1 for 1 is TRASH. F*CK PEOPLE DONT OVERVALUE THIS TERRIBLE TRASHPILE BODY.

The extort ability is not that good. Paying 1 extra mana is not worth it.

The tap ability is situational, but it can be good. Possibility to combo with it or just screw your opponent over.
