Sidisi, Undead Vizier
 
Ironically for a character whose rules text includes the word "exploit", Sidisi is actually less exploitable in this version than the Khans of Tarkir set. But what you lose on that front, you gain in versatility - you get not only a powerful finisher, but some sort of backup. In Standard and other such formats, control decks may go for a more evasive end-game creatures like Silumgar, but that's far from nothing.

Today's card of the day is Sidisi, Undead Vizier which is a five mana
4/6 Legendary with Deathtouch, and Exploit that allows you to search your library for a card and add it to your hand.  A 4/6 Deathtouch for five is okay, but attached to a Diabolic Intent and you have a very strong later game play that can dramatically improve your options.  As a zombie this is easily supported with tokens to sacrifice or a lord to augment the already decent 4/6 body into a bigger offensive or defensive threat.  Overall this is a card that will likely be very popular in Commander and even at five mana may see play in other formats as an efficient endgame setup.
 
In Limited this is a very powerful creature that is difficult to deal with and at least trades in most situations.  The search if activated is a potential game winner when combined with the 4/6 in play and it makes for a strong first pick in Booster.  For Sealed the two Black out of five is manageable as long as Black mana is a primary or secondary color and it is flexible enough to make the color a strong consideration barring a very weak pool.
