      I agree. If they insist on making it black, it should probably at least be “target opponent loses 1 life.”

      I also don’t really see lands being a consistent part of any of the limited archetypes of this set, so it feels like it’s being included for a 60 or 100 card format.

        Given that it’s a one-drop, it’s at least an early game lizard enabler in limited. A rollout with this and a 2- and 3-drop with the lizard “pain” trigger is easy synergy.

        In the late game, there is the chance of getting a few 2-damage pings for grindy inevitability if the format has room for slow decks like that.

      It should have drained opponents, but bringing kids to sacrifice is on brand for black.

      Just look at Marionette Master/Apprentice as a similar example.
