Thrull Parasite is one of the newest "Magic: The Gathering" cards spoiled today Jan. 10, 2013 from Wizards of the Coast's upcoming expert expansion set "Gatecrash." Revealed in the official card image gallery on MagicTheGathering.com, Thrull Parasite is the most mana efficient creature with Extort we've seen so far.
Thrull Parasite - B
Creature - Thrull (Uncommon)
Extort (Whenever you cast a spell, you may pay [W/B]. If you do, each opponent loses 1 life and you gain that much life.)
Tap, Pay 2 life: Remove a counter from target nonland permanent.
The hunger of a vampire and the subtlety of a tax collector.
If you thought Syndic of Tithes was worth running in your deck, you'll be thrilled to play with Thrull Parasite. It's secondary ability can be used in a variety of situations.
Fate counter, time counter, suspend counter, or ice counter - it doesn't matter. Because Thrull Parasite doesn't care what type of counters it's removing, there's plenty of potential for it with cards from the past, present, and future of "Magic."
From removing that last loyalty counter off a pesky planeswalker like Domri Rade or Gideon, Champion of Justice to allowing your Geralf's Messenger die over and over again, there's a plethora of interactions to explore with Thrull Parasite.
How will you use Thrull Parasite?
