    Seeing things like this remind me how busted vampire nighthawk is. I’d still play this despite how much worse it is by comparison.

    so far this is the worst of the reveal a tribal card or pay {mana} cycle right?

    • CMK

      No? Evasive creature that causes a 4 point life swing every time it connects. It seems fantastic on curve, especially if you can follow it up with buffs and keep it alive. *for limited

        Its also pretty easy to cast at a single black source. I wonder if standard could have a deck with all these aggressive lifelinkers from this block and the one from Kaladesh.

    In a vampire deck, is this worse than vampire nighthawk?

    • Random Guy

      Nighthawk is basically unblockable and nets you a creature kill most of the time. So yes, unless you’re playing Modern, in which case those traits are not as useful as -1 mana. But of course Modern playability of both is questionable.

        God dang it, I thought this cost one less. I thought it typically costed three and could cost two…

        • Random Guy

          …are you seriously sarcastically mocking me for THAT?

          In a Vampire deck, which is the only place you would play this card, the chances of you having no other Vampires in hand on turn 2 is next to 0.

          • Shagoth

            No, I actually thought that this cost less…
            I thought this could potentially be a 2/2 for two mana with flying and lifelink. Misread it, best is three.
            I didn’t say anything contrary to the likelihood of this being reduced in cost either…

    Whoa. That art.
