A nice little blast from the past here. Every set needs to have a creature that looks so bad it might actually be good. Right?
He reminds us a little of Abyssal Persecutor and Desecration Demon.
He has the power/toughness down.
Cost is more prohibitive.
What? no evasion? Oh.
No Trample? Ok…
It gives your opponent life? Ewww..
On the plus side:
Can always attack/block.
You can still win the game when he’s in play.
Can’t be Ultimate Priced. Yay!
So is it any good?
I’m going to say no on this one, unfortunately. In a creature-filled format where you have slightly smaller guys with advantageous abilities, I don’t think this dude can make it out there.
And no, I don’t think splashing Red for Skullcrack is worth it in this case.
