Most "metal" card ever! I can't help, but sing War Pigs each time I cast this.

Good Guy Abhorrent Overlord.
Is a demon in this era of magic.
Still has a drawback like the old ones do, so they don't feel left out and outclassed.

Beside the exquisite illustration, Kaalia is ALWAYS hiring!

Uh I notice it doesn't say "at the beginning of your upkeep sacrifice a creature OR DESTROY THIS CARD" so what happens if you run out of creatures to sacrifice?

Follow this up with Demon of Death's Gate as you can sac three tokens for part of the cost. It also comes with 3 Black symbols for Devotion.

Don't forget, he's a demon, so Shadowborn Apostle has a new friend!

@WeeDragonuats: That doesn't work, because the whip exiles this guy at the end of your turn, so unless you have a Rescue from the Underworld handy, he won't be around for you to sac him to himself.

Now, Gift of Immortality with this guy is just insane. Even if all you have is the Overlord, that's two 1/1 flyers every turn for free.

This card reminds me in a way of Skeletal Vampire. Back in Time Spiral standard, that guy was often seen as a one or two-of as a control deck finisher, and I see this card as potentially serving similar purpose. Although he lacks the vamp's regeneration, the fact he can spawn a variable number of fliers on ETB compensates somewhat, in addition to his increased p/t. And he even gives you a sacrifice outlet.

When he rotates out I'll be sure to stick him in my mono-black Modern deck with four Bad Moon and lots of two and three swamp permanents.

Grave Pact and Gift of Immortality said hi.

Sac your Overlord, force your opponent to sac a creature, then return Overlord to the battlefield and gain at least 5 1/1 Harpies? Count me in!
