Nope.
Nergal is one of those really powerful, must have cards in your collection. By taking him out, we're opening up the gameplay for more varied strategies and techniques.
You can still use him in the Open format with Base Set 1 cards.

Though it would be interesting to see how he performs without his stall cards.

Nergal's ability effects the board in a pretty direct but marginal manner, but using it keeps you from drawing a card or increasing your stats.

So without stall all decks that try to use Nergal's ability will be creature spam, because he simply won't have the stats for other cards.

If you want to play Nergal based on his spell-schools there's no reason to play him over Ariana, since she also has dark-spell school and starts at 2 magic and doesn't have the useless fortune stat.

So, by process of elimination we can conclude that the only 2 reasonable ways to play Nergal is spell/fortune (or lock, which there is no more of in BS2 standard format) or creature spam.

That's all there is to Nergal.
