Dakmor Sorceress

So, let's say you play mono black, and play this guy with no acceleration, that means you played six mana for a generic 6/4 creature. So, you just cast a Craw Wurm. While it's true that he will continue growing every turn while he stays alive, and he is immune to all the "non-black" kill spells, I don't think that makes him worth the six mana, even in mono-black control. In limited, he normally ends up being a 4/4 for six mana, which is even worse.
Just not the best guy out there.

Darkmor Sorceress - Tuesday
 
I can see this card getting reprinted in 9th Edition.  It's pretty harmless and with that huge casting cost it probably wouldn't see much play outside of casual games and limited formats.  That's really rather sad, because the art is really good.

Dakmor Sorceress --
 
I'm less than impressed with Dakmor Sorceress.  Every format that has her as an option for being in your deck also includes Nightmare, which for the same cost, provides you with power *and* toughness equal to the number of swamps you control, as well as flight.  You'll likely only want to play one card with this sort of ability at that mana cost, so Nightmare should almost always make the cut above Dakmor Sorceress.
 
In limited play, Dakmor Sorceress has potential to be the largest creature on the table.  However, the fact that she operates off of the number of Swamps in play in a format in which you are often forced to play multiple colors hurts her playability a bit.

Dakmor Sorceress
 
Another card that has seen a huge jump since the announcement that Portal cards will be allowed in Type 1/1.5.  A nice card for Mono Black, and I'm sure it will see some play.  In casual, Dakmor Sorceress can be a blast.  In limited, a bit harder to make amazing since going mono color is very difficult in limited.
