He's a big part of the Kalastria, Bloodghast, combo, plus has synergies with Dark Tutelage, he is definitely an important vamp.

Not bad as a sac engine. I like his low cost too. Black doesn't usually get enough of stuff like this these days.

It doesn't make sense that he can eviscerate himself and learn anything from it, but it's cool that he can.

Flavor text would've been better as:
"In matters of life and death, he trusts your guts."

An easily overlooked card that is mediocre unless you realize he's almost as good as free card filtering. Whenever you're going to lose a creature you instead improve the value of your draw and prevent whatever other detrimental effects the kill spell would've caused.

Free sac outlets are often decent, and this one has a blue effect in black; quite handy. 3.5.

Also not that there are only a handle of 1 drop free-sac outlets, this guy is one who can also chump if need be. Carrion Feeder is usually better, but the scry effect is quite good.

Very good, even if only because it's a sac engine that helps a few combos go infinite.

This is currently the only 1 cmc sac outlet with no additional cost in modern. To have infinites go off on curve he is vital. As a bonus, he improves your draws and allows you to tutor for anything you want as long as your creature can survive the sac, which is what the infinites are based on anyhow.

Totally not abusable in the least as a sac engine. Nope, not at all.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
