Having a removal is great. Having a removal and a creature in one card is even better. This card is nothing short of amazing because it sets you up on the battlefield with your own creature and destroys an opponent's threat -- and all this will cost you only 4 mana.
Chupacabra alone makes black color extremely draftable in this meta. And if you get to draft more than one copy, then you're set for a 5-0 winstreak.
