It's a bit like Blood Artist, for a Junk Aura deck.

Could have been more interesting if this card was buffed in one of the following ways:
-give it Rancor's recursion trigger.
-make it a cantrip.
-reduce the cost to Black.

As it is, it might still turn out decent if you dedicade a deck to it:
(Admittedly though, this would have been far more fun if it met one of the above three criteria.)

-cast it on creatures with an "inherent death wish", i.e. creatures that you want to sacrifice (i.e. Magus of the Mirror, which will win you the game if you have four life or less left.)
-cast it on undercosted creatures that you'll ultimately have to sacrifice as well at end of turn (like Ball Lightning) or during your upkeep (like Phyrexian Soulgorger, Chronozoa). Vexing Devil and Treacherous Pit-Dweller should get a honorable mention at this point.

Also i feel like they put this card (along with ... (see all)

I find it works just fine in my suicide black deck with Auger Spree. They never see it coming

Combo withberserk! Smash with trample, then do it again from the grave!

Maybe on a lord of extinction? Make sure you kill your opponent with the smallest graveyard with the attack, then the next guy. Maybe fling it at someone else and kill the whole table with 1 creature in 1 turn.

Interesting and potentially powerful. 4/5

I use this in a BUG proliferate deck and it can be pretty awesome.
Best moment: Liquimetal Coating + Vastwood Hydra + Throne of Geth + Vorel before saccing. I believe he was a 44/44 at the time. I would've gone for the winmore Fungal Sprouting, but I was out of mana and it was, after all, a winmore. Ah, good times. I haven't seen my buddies that mad during a game in a looong time.

This seems like it would be nuts with anything that is able to pump itself such as Arcbound Ravager, Blood Bairn or Immolating Souleater. That said, you could just as easily use Rite of Consumption...

I find that this works well with my Consuming Aberration and my Undercity Informer. It's turned a couple of games around for me, and often it's a winner.
