Thorncaster Sliver


...have to make him tougher, though

This + Last Laugh + Blessing of Leeches and deal 1 point of damage to High Priest of Penance. It is a 3 card combo, (unless you count the 1 point damage dealing as a 4th, but run 4 of each in a 60 card deck with some tutors and board wipes just in case. Could be quite powerful.

Best part that makes him a 5/5...."may"

So, does the wording of the card hint at an ability to destroy creatures with proc black or white since it doesn't seem the card is doing the targeting...the player is...? Am I just being noob?

So, you have Doran as your commander and you equip him usually with Sword of fire and ice now add this guy to your deck, equip him with the sword, attack and then deal the 2 damage to himself XD and destroy target nonland permanent, yay!

Skeletal Grimmace anyone?

Darksteel Plate is the obvious way to keep him destroying permanents. Power of Fire and Prodigal Pyromancer can deal damage on your terms at instent speed. Spitemare is great on offense and defense. Mudbutton Torchrunner and Goblin Arsonist are your traps. To round it off, let's add some burn spells and a Stuffy Doll.

I want to call it "Flagellant Shrapnel" or "Stop Hitting Myself" or "Liar Liar."

Really good effect for 2 mana, even though it's delayed.

@ Irandrura
First thing I thought of when I saw the flavor text....

On a game related note, this card will at least take out their biggest threat, attacking or not, and can easily be abused with indestructability

I like this guy a lot. He has a "build around me" feel, but even more than that he's just stupid good without trying to break him. He is an excellent deterrent, capable of stalling the field because no one wants to mess with him and lose their best permanent. Even if a player kill spells him, they are essentially wasting a removal spell that could better be used on your beefy guys. I've even used him in multiplayer to kill my one of my opponent's biggest creatures by asking a third player to fry him with a burn spell.

He can be used in absurd combos, perfectly reflects the stall and punish aspects of Orzhov, and can fill a variety of roles in multiplayer. The design team did an amazing job on Orzhov for this set.
