3.6? Stupid kids only seeing a drawback and not a turn 1 5/5 trampler.

"but what about blockers? if they drop an early creature you end up clearing your board." THAT'S WHY YOU ARE IN BLACK. YOU KILL ANY BLOCKERS WITH KILL SPELLS.

Even if you don't Dark ritual him on turn 1, HE'S A 5/5 TRAMPLER FOR 3 IN BLACK. without a drawback, he'd be Moss Kami Cost wise.

I'm glad they reprinted this card. This is a classic, and I had been out of Magic for years. Actually I remember the last pack I bought was Urza's Legacy. I barely got back into Magic in January, and I was so stoked to see this at the shop. Being able to get my hands on a Phyrexian Negator was the sole reason I bought this box. The cool thing is that I just bought a huge collection off a guy recently and he had one from Urza block. Good stuff. Good Card. Good Times.

Honestly, terrible.
I HAVE played it.
You may get significant damage in but it puts you in such a bad position.

Going for 3-drop power?
Wooly thoctar

Needs to be mono-black compatible?
Phyrexian soulgourger
(phylactery lich works too if it has to be T2 which this isn't)

Needs trample/evasion?
Hypnotic specter

With today's options there is NO reason to run this

this wouldnt be a good card even if its mana cost were 0

This card could make or break you, actually, it breaks you most of the time. The trample ability really does no good, let's say a 3/3 creature blocks. Great, your Negator survives, deals 2 damage...and let's get rid of 3 of your perms! Might as well use 3 red manas to hurl 3 Lightning Bolts at your opponent.

Why are they just reprinting any old cards to Mythic Rare status? Thank god they're not doing this for legitimate releases.

I fuxing hate this card. Every player I talk to says this card is awesome, except when I get it out turn 1 via dark ritual, players usually respond with a bolt or something, not only getting rid of itself, but also my land.

even if this gets chump blocked by say, bears, you are having to get rid of too many of your own things for only 3 damage that gets through. I will sell my foil one to a shop or for trade fodder, I can't wait to get rid of this a.sshole.

I agree with @moustache and @blackalbino. essentially running annhilator on yourself is SO not worth it. Abyssal Persecutor is infiintely better and only costs one more.

It's a decent sideboard card with good flavor.

Shame it doesn't have Shadow or Shroud by itself.
Then it would be really good.
