This guy is what is called a Daemones Chthonian or Daimones Khthonioi in Greek myth. But his form is more like a the traditional demon in Christian thought.

I like this guy A LOT for mono-black. You should have PLENTY of black mana symbols out there by the time you're able to cast him. And say you do drop him after a boardwipe, okay, he still generates 2 Harpies. Sac one on the following turn, you're swinging in for 7 points through the air, then on 2nd main phase, cast Disciple of Bolas, sac the Overlord and net yourself some nice card draw and lifegain. And, if you have the mana to cast Rescue from the Underworld, you've got even better options.

Too many people look at cards in a vacuum, when interaction with other cards is what makes the game fun...at least to me.

A decent way to get rid of Abyssal Persecutor in a casual Demons tribal deck. Demons are generally undercosted but with penalizing effects, so it's nice to get a late-game savior if you're getting pinged to death by a Grinning Demon. Plus the art is awesome.

Mono-Black EDH I guess. Outside of that it should be a strong card in limited.

Amazing with Whip of Erebos; you play the demon, get at least four harpies, and then sac it to itself and bring it back with the whip (getting at least four more harpies). And it can still take an attack.

You'll at least get two attacks out of him cause you can sac the two Harpies to him, but he's not a bomb in the sense of dealing all 20 by himself too easily.

Quite bomby for limited, and that's about it.

3/5 Stars

Meh. A bit on the weak side. Could have easily been 7/7 or having trample or fear or anything. By itself, it's a 6/6 flyer and two tokens for 7 mana, with a heavy drawback. That's not that good. And if you have a ton of black permanents in play, the question is why you didn't win yet.
Sure it's good in limited. 99% of all rares and uncommons are good in limited.

In Commander it's so-so. In mono-black Commander decks that need tokens it's acceptable. In the worst case, you can still sac itself. Though it's better if you have creatures you actually want to sac.

3/5

This card is garbage. He shouldhave been a 5 casting cost, maybe 3b 2 colorless. 7 casting cost in standard is a no go...not for this power...in EDH (commander) there are just too many better cards to put him in your deck. Especially in 4-5 player games where some ass plays blue red with constant unsummon and wheel of fortune type of effects.

I just cannot see this guy ever being played. Sure everyone will always talk about how he is good with this combo or that combo, in actual live play you will be wishing you were holding GriselBane, Minions of Leshrac(sp), Skittles(Infect Flying Legend), etc. etc. etc.

This guy is a total miss and shouldhave either lower casting cost or been uncommon.
