I give this card a 5 just for fun factor, and that more cards should have graveyard effects like his.

This thing might be the champion of weird creature states, particularly on MTGO. Just produced in the same turn: from 0/1 to upside-down, 15/15 Chancellor of the Dross (first, being Nezumi Graverobber that flipped; then a Sphinx of Magosi that drew three cards; then a Mind Shrieker that milled the Chancellor and thus had base stats 6/6, 3 +1/+1 counters, +and 7/+7. Standing on its head. Probably whistling the Marseillaise, too.)

One card that is to be played with this one is- Phage the untouchable. Declare attacks, With a not so great monster on top of the graveyard. Attack goes through, after blockers are declared discard Phage from your hand. Victory!

once this is in play, another good creature to pop out would be say phyrexian dreadnought...

@The day the music died: You can rearrange your graveyard order in any format where cards like Volrath's Shapeshifter aren't legal. So if you have Volrath's Shapeshifter in your deck, you can't rearrange your graveyard :)

Volrath's Shapeshifter probably has massive potential as a combo card. I could see it used perhaps with a creature that has an ability on the field as well as in the graveyard, or maybe just as a second shot at a giant beatstick; say your opponent feels all warm and fuzzy inside after somehow beating your turn 5 Progenitus, you could sling one of these out and watch as your opponent gets frustrated. The problem with this is that it's inconsistent and would probably need some black graveyard exiling to make sure the creature you want is on top. For this reason, it doesn't make much sense as just a casual addition to a deck. 3.5/5

This card got much better now that you can rearrange your graveyard. Or is that rule just valid in standard?

Where are more cards like this?

Emrakul's appearance is too slippery for him to hold on to. . .
