Devourer of Hope is one of the newest "Born of the Gods" spoilers revealed today Jan. 11, 2014 in a post on MtgSalvation.com. This powerful rare black creature card is one of the five prerelease cards from Wizards of the Coast's upcoming expert expansion set.

Devourer of Hope - 5BB
Creature - Demon (Rare)
Flying
B, Sacrifice another creature: Regenerate Devourer of Hope.
2B, Sacrifice two other creatures: Destroy target creature.
6/4

Abusing Devourer of Hope relies upon having a stockpile of disposable creatures. Call of the Nightwing can help you generate fodder over the course of a few turns however Elespeth, Sun's Champion really steals the spotlight here. If you're in white then one card you really don't want to pass up is Murder Investigation, which can fuel several additional activations of your Devourer of Hope depending on the creature you enchant with this uncommon aura.

Another idea may be to populate with cards like Growing Ranks. Forget Master of Waves and use an inexpensive to acquire black rare that pairs well with Devourer of Hope: Ogre Slumlord. If you're running humans consider Xathrid Necromancer. If you like sacrificing your own creatures Devourer of Hope might make an interesting addition to a scavenge deck alongside Korozda Guildmage and Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord.

Of course your options expand dramatically when you look outside of Standard, with a pair of Gravecrawlers allowing you to slowing eat away your opponent's side of the battlefield. Don't forget that as a Demon Devourer of Hope might make an interesting addition to that Kaalia of the Vast deck.

How will you use Devourer of Hope?
