If we could ever get this working in a {B}{U}{W} deck, this would be even more awesome. I'd love to attack for 3 damage, sacrifice it to Disciple of Griselbrand to trigger undying, then phase it out until end of turn with Venser, the Sojourner to make it deal 2 more damage and remove the +1/+1 counter. If I can get through, that's a potential 7 damage a turn for {1}. Now to figure out the mana curve...

Love it. Looks threatening and makes my friends do stupid mistakes while trying to get rid of it. 5/5

This is a crazy aggro card

T1: Swamp, Dark Ritual, this guy, opponent takes 2
T2: Assuming you attack, opponent takes 5 after, if it gets removed, opponent takes 4 and now you have a 4/3
T3 and after: Proceed to panic opponent with his other friend friends

The only not so good part is the BBB casting cost, which you can get by with dark rituals or just playing mono black

I underestimate this card. I will lose to this card.

Does Gore Vassal combo with this well?

One of my favorite cards, but I only use it in my deck with my Simic Guildmage since the Undying is a bit of a drawback when compared to regenerate or abilities like that of Gravecrawler

Otherwise, this is an awesome card 4.5/5

Bad artwork, but very strong card. Two Black shocks on a creature? First a 3/2 then a 4/3? Card advantage.

Not the most amazing thing to first turn Dark Ritual into, but still pretty damn impressive.
I suppose it doesn't really matter that it comes into play tapped, unless you really wanted to give it haste. But black doesn't really do that too much...

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
