This is too swingy and won't be fun. Cards like these need to have a minimum value by themselves to see play, but at six mana a 2/2 with a drawback is not there.

Putting this at uncommon also means you can rule out ever having enough of those in Limited to make the triggered ability happen, so outside of Constructed (which has better things to do than spend 24 mana over four turns to deal lethal damage to a player that had no removal; and better things to copy with Rite of Replication) this is a six mana 2/2 with a drawback. Period.

This card has no chance of audience appeal.

Also the flavor needs to be tightened. I have a guess why a card with that name might have that effect, but as a card creator you have not used the tools available (like flavor text) to properly tell the story.

Minor tidbit: The "cannot block" ability and what comes after should be separate paragraphs. It's missing a line break.
