I doubt this fellow will see constructed play, even in block.  Possibly a way of firing off a mini-Mutilate in block against either elves or goblins, but that remains to be seen.  Sack to the husk for a nice, board-clearing surprise.

In limited, it's a 2 power for 3 CC flier.  It's effect can be nice, but can also backfire on you, so beware of your timing on playing this guy

Constructed: 2.5
Limited: 3
Current Price:
$0.20

An interesting limited card. You can set up an unfavorable trade early with this card; just make sure you don't have too many 1/1's out yourself. Good in the early game, and is a solid flier late, the ability may harm you more than your opponent late, so I wouldn't take it any higher then 4-6 in draft.
 
You'll notice I've avoided talking about this in constructed. There's a reason, as Engineered Plague is much better than this card could ever be. Even Infest or Decree of Pain will do better once Plague leaves.
 
Constructed: 1
Limited: 3.25

       This is only second to "Extra Arms" for dumbest card name in Sourge and/or ever. What, is he Death's Head Commander Buzzard of a legion of buzzards Death himself is training somewhere, preparing a Vulture//Buzzard hostile takeover?! This would definetly make an interesting twist on the current story... 

       But uh, to the review... In constructed you could uh... not play this guy! yea!

       In limited he's much better. Just make sure your not going to put yourself in a bad position by letting him in play... He's best to use when you have decent butted creatures all around. Sometimes I see people play 2 of these in a deck with lots of 3/1 etc type creatures. After combat damage on the stack they blow him up and wrath of god you or get rid of a good chunk of your stuff. Just remember to play him safely and he'll always be good when he explodes.

Constructed: 1
Limited: 3
