a great vamp card to have against board sweeps. Lets your bloodghasts swing away every turn. Highborn + Bloodghast + Aristocrat + Blade of the Bloodchief = fun.

This works GREAT with vampire aristocrat and bloodghast

Thanks wizards !

great vampire and great ability, but not as useful when the other strong deck is white and white do not send creature to the graveyard, they remove them from the game, making here ability useless outside of combat.

Still easy to go around that ability, by using, path to exile, journey to nowhere, oblivion ring, Admonition angel...

But still make your white opponent to think twice before blocking your bloodghast if they don't have path to exile in there hand (or if they want to hold it for when Nocturnus will come out)

@ all those who have mentioned Wrath of God, etc.

I bet you won't have the mana at the time he plays the Wrath.

@ If i had 4 of these out, and one vampire dies. Could i just pay 1 {B} and that would trigger all four? or would i have to pay one {B} for each highborn's ability?
You have to pay Black for each ability, therefore for each copy of this card.

It's a pity it doesn't work with nulls, as the flavour text might suggest.

What bothers me about this is the unfitting flavor text. Nulls? An enormous contingent of them? Would be more fitting in a vampire that made zombies (not to mention that I need a 2-drop for my zombie deck).

What the flavor text doesn't mention, is that the families of higher status are the ones with fewer nulls.

add a Blood Artist, youve got a dying creature dealing 3 for 1 measly little black mana, and 1 without. Either way you gain that much life. Wrath of God, anyone?

If you like this kind of effect: Blood Artist or even Falkenrath Noble is probably better. Yes even in an Vampire deck.

You will rarely have spare Mana to spend. Blood Artist works for free and even with enemy creatures.

Often is it just the question: What happens more often: a) Vampires dieing or b) Creatures overall dieing. If b) is the case, and especially in multiplayer it will: Blood Artist is better.
