Well, it's the three modes from Umezawa's Jitte. The only mode that is even a bit weird for a black card is the +2/+2, and the only thing weird about that is Black normally gives more power than toughness.
I wonder if it's a cycle, and whether there are cards in each color that have three modes that are suitable..
Yes, I realized the three modes
Black does not normally gain life without sacrificing something or taking the life from something. But I guess they let it pass for pure flavor goodness.
Black has a ton of lifelink and random life gain is tacked on quite a few cards. At the very least it doesn't seem out of color for black at all or a stretch to make flavor work.
