I have to agree with everyone the art is just astonishing

This artwork makes me cream. Not the best card ever but not that bad either, at least hes a 2/2 bear with some decent abilities, especially late game.

This card seems to be getting some undeserved dislike. For a very affordable White or BlackWhite or Black, you get a 2/2 creature with a good color combo and two useful abilities. It is debatable that they are 1 overpriced, but keep in mind that they can both be used without having to Tap which makes him somewhat useful late game with a lot of available mana. This all sounds like a very fair deal to me.

Not quite a 5 star card, yet it is a fair costed two drop and thats quite a feat being that it's black. No matter how you feel about it's playability, the art is amazing. It is however a real shame this wasn't printed with some equally good flavor text to support Mr. Staples' wonderous artwork. 4/5

If you are ever in the sad scenario where you are debating between this and Acolyte of Xathrid for your deck, take this.

If it was target player looses 1 life, it would be more elegant. This is not the worst thing in the world, when your out of plays this gives you something to spend your mana on.

I would have like it more if its white ability were "Each player gains 1 life" for the simmetry, or "Target player gains 2 life", so you can effectively drain 1 life paying 4WhiteBlack...

Great art, so-so creature. A vanilla 2/2 for White or Black is quite ok, so the abilities aren't to complain at... I uses a couple of them in my Orzhov deck because I need White and Black creature to sacrifice for Teysa, and this is the only cheap creature in Ravnica for this (beside Mourning Thrull)
