Just as Brock Lesnar's current location is, by definition, Suplex City, Olivia turns any deck she happens to be in into a vampire tribal deck. That's probably not enough for casual purists, but fortunately she is very strong as a straight-up black-red aggro card. Yes, it sucks to have your Giant Solifuge or Skizzik get shut down because your opponent randomly maindecks Elite Inquisitor, but overall, her hyper-efficient combat stats, enhancement of any and every creature you own, and making Dark Withering always be cheap enough for an aggro deck more than make up for it.

I don't like the name, but like the card quite a bit. the Definitive madness enabler, on a 3/3 flier for a meager 3, this thing's got loads of value, considering it's repeatable, and most madness vamps are 2 drops. Nice swarm card.
