Wrexial or Thief of Sanity?

I have Wrexial, the Risen Deep in every EDH deck of mine that contains the colors black and blue, because it is a 5/8 for six mana and has an array of awesome abilities, but it still is very expensive, so I am contemplating replacing it with Thief of Sanity .
The thief has lower power and toughness than does Wrexial, but it also has a much lower mana cost and a far nastier ability, and I also prefer flying over landwalk, even two of them, so I feel that it would be a great replacement for that card.
I'm partial to lower CMC, and a lower curve overall, so Thief of Sanity might win out here. With Wrexial, you're tied to what is already in the graveyard, and unless you run a bit of a mill strategy, it can be hard to really get what you want. I think the Thief might win out here.

I'd have to agree with Thief of Sanity to help you in the early game and potentially steal some valuable cards from your opponents.
