I am seriously lamenting the fact that I didn’t order a play set of M10 Vampire Nocturnus the moment I saw that this card was being reprinted in M13. Alas, it is already pricing itself out of my comfort range, as this card is likely to see a very good amount of play in the near future. It’s a great card, really. For four mana, you play with the top card of your deck revealed, and as long as that card is black, Nocturnus and all other Vampires gain +2/+1 and flying. So your Stromkirk Nobles suddenly become 3/2 flyers at the very least, and can get very big, very fast. Granted this effect depends on what your next card will be, but if you have a decent enough board presence when that face-up card is black, you’re going to pretty much have the game won. While Nocturnus itself isn’t a Win Target Game card, a 5/4 flyer for 4 mana that gives all of its friends the same boost is really damn good. It was pretty good when it was legal back in the Magic 2010 era, and it’s even better now! Here’s hoping you open some Nocturnus in your packs!
Oh, and did I mention, Nocturnus isn’t legendary, so they can stack? Have fun.
