Unearth for everyone!
Although it's a somewhat risky card that'd be one of my main reasons to spash red for a Zombie deck.
He's just nuts with Undead Warchief:
If you cast him for 1BlackRed and return a Death Baron for example, you'll have a 5/4 double-striking, death-touching Champion, a 4/3 Death Baron and a 4/3 death-touching Warchief.
And if you run Cemetry Reapers, you can even thwart my first statement and make sure that your opponent won't be able to return anything from his graveyard.

The only black creature with double strike

I wish they had instead made a rare and made it just you get a critter instead of "each player." now THAT sounds nice with a fleshbag.

the mana cost thing was a rav block mechanic. the idea was they were like multicolored cards but you could still get half of them if you only had one color. Others are azorius herald, patagia viper, flash con***ion, vigor mortis, steamcore weird, etc etc. Without bothering to check I'd guess each guild has two of them.

The interesting combination of triggers on crypt champion in particular makes in combo amusingly with saffi eriksdotter (you have to cast champion without spending Red.)

Overall I think this is a fairly solid card, especially if you are running a tribal zombie deck, though red zombies do exist, I do not personally findthem largely game changing. But Adding Dark Temper and Terminate could be very useful.

Also few things are more fun than playing this after a Death Baron has hit the yard, and getting yourself a 3/3 Double striking Death toucher.

I like this guy, I use him to get more mileage out of Hell's Thunder and Ball Lightning.

Mulldrifter is 5 mana, no?

That Saffi combo is funny. Now to make it actually do something for you: Confusion in the Ranks. Steal the entire board!!!!

1)Have Saffi and Confusion on the board
2)cast Crypt Champion/put champion on the battlefield w/o paying {R}-put his death trigger on the stack
3)Put the champion's confusion trigger on the stack.
4)Put the champion's recursion trigger on the stack
5)Sac saffi-put her recursion trigger check on the stack
6)Let Saffi's recursion trigger check resolve
7)let the champion's recursion trigger resolve, bringing back saffi
8)put the confusion trigger on the stack for saffi
9)sac saffi-put her recursion trigger on the stack
10)let saffi's recursion trigger check resolve
11)Saffi's confusion trigger fizzles
12)let the champion's Confusion trigger resolve
13)let champion's death trigger resolve, he dies-this triggers saffi's auto recursion check for the champion
14)repeat step's 2-4
15)repeat step 7-13
16)repeat steps 14 and 15 ad na... (see all)

severly underrated card. Pulls out most Specters or a Fleshbag for lots of fun.

I'm working on a Rakdos deck. I'm totally using this guy to bring back Vexing Devil

Absurd with Inner-Flame Acolyte.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
