This card ia amusing. It's rare that you have a
creature that required an upkeep sacrifice that
can't destroy itself. This means that this bad
boys becomes a MUST deal with creature for your
opponent. This is a great card for those mana
black or u/b control decks to play. I'd
definitely play this card in a variety of
formats. He's a 4/4 flier for five mana. That's
more than acceptable in my book.
Woe is definitely brought to the table if you
play this card. I find creatures with large
drawbacks such as this one particularly
disgusting, especially when I see them as the
rare in my booster pack. Absolutely not worth
your investment in the slot in your deck or the
mana you spend to play it.
If you wind up with this card in limited, I'm
not as down on it as I would be in constructed.
Yes, its drawback is still horrendous, but if
timed well, it can potentially pull you out of a
hole. Don't expect a lot from this card; a first
pick it is not.

An interesting card. As a 4/4 flyer for 5 mana,
a nice bargain, especially if your opponent has
less creatures than you. Since their upkeep
happens first after you play Woebringer, you can
hurt their board, and you'll probably get some
hits in with this guy.
