Gatecrash Preview: Cartel Aristocrat

Not quite Falkenrath Aristocrat eh?

Nice something that looks like a vampire but isn’t. It’s definitely a great sacrifice outlet that can potentially become unblockable or dodge a removal by pushing someone in the way of it. (Love the quote) Stats are fine for the cost too. You can sacrifice a ‘enters’ the battlefield creature to it and use Treasury Thrull to get it back and repeat.

It does have a slim chance of seeing Standard play. I was thinking that since it’s a human it can fit into a deck featuring Ravenous Demon. Once you have nothing substantial to sacrifice to the demon, you can cast this guy and sac the demon and not fall victim to its disgusting drawback. Ouch!
