I think people are correct that the key is to realize that the trashing effect is not supposed to always be a drawback. Still, I think this card is weak, especially when it is so similar to Margrave.

Yeah, it's no Margrave, but I mean come on, Margrave is crazy.

This is the big takeaway for me: Margrave is nuts.

I personally think that the situations where Tragic Hero is good come up often enough that I consider it to be one of the stronger Nocturne cards. It's certainly become one of my favourites.

When Tragic Hero triggers, you trash it and gain a treasure, but gaining a treasure is not contingent on trashing.  In other words, the hero didn't need to die!  It truly is a tragedy.
I guess this was an intentional choice by DXV to enable the Necromancer interaction.
I care more about having the best wording than I do about incidental interactions.
[shrug]  Mad props for making Tragic Hero quite thematic with Necromancer!
