Quote from Salmo »It's just about reasonable expectations.
Quote from wtwlf123 »The main advantage of this card over Curse are the two areas where Curse is bad. First, this guy can create threats without threats, and Second, it has an ability that is good against sorcery mass removal. The two biggest downsides that Curse has are both mitigated by this card.
Quote from wtwlf123 »If it didn't get the creature unless it died, then no, we wouldn't want it. But since all you'll likely need is 1 removal spell to create 7+ power with this guy, the ceiling adds a lot of value to his overall evaluation. And don't forget the value his haste mode can have against wraths and 'walker boards.
