I realize that the one time I've actually seen this card played I had just eliminated all but 2 players in a 5 player chaos game and the guy probably actually normally would get the agent out with a spirit link or something. But I gotta share this.

I got given this card and the next turn I played and equipped it with a Loxodon Warhamemr and began brutalizing everyone :P. It was a fun game all round.

Within mono-black, I find that this, Pestilence, and Cemetery Gate can combo. Maybe not THE most worthwhile strategy ever, but you can use the gates to block it, pestilence to add some damage per turn, and if things get out of hand with other creatures your opponent has, pestilence can wipe them all. *shrug*

I see this card as a legacy on the theme that Curse Artifact and Cursed Land began. In fact, in Urza's Saga there was another card on the theme - Parasitic Bond. This card is possible the best of the group, though, because of its great casting cost and flexibility. Although as @Arachobia pointed out it can be a bit of a gamble.

A pretty good way to trigger creature "opponent has creatures" requirements, like those on Oath of Druids and Defense of the Heart.

Sigil of sleep doesn't work with this.
If your opponent is smart, he'll return the sleeper agent to your hand, (owner, not controller) at which point the Sigil disappears. And you have just wasted two mana.

Conversely, you could turn this into an aggro card by putting down a Torpor Orb first

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
