Slap it in anything white because control doesn't mind a card that trades and becomes a 4/4 flier and aggro doesn't care if it trades and becomes a 4/4 flier. Makes no sense.
And Combo will find a way to keep on churning out 4/4 flyers at least once per turn starting T2. T1, Viscera Seer. T2, this, proceed to combat, sac it, get an angel. T3, Claim // Fame, do it again?
In what format is that combo both legally playable and overpowered? Modern? I don't think so.
Seems fake because of the misattributed artist, but the card design is quite good. It's strong (much more so with instant-speed sacrifice outlets you can use in combat) but doesn't feel overpowered.
Claim//Fame will be in Standard with it if real.
About the name, Skudd proved that the wrong name could be a thing caused by the blur and angle. So still on the maybe it is real, maybe it is not.
Viscera Seer is not standard legal. Are there other instant speed, zero-cost recurring sac outlets in standard? Claim//Fame only brings it back once, anyway. I'm not saying this card is weak, just that "it's fake because it's broken!" is an awful argument in this case.
