Every card in Time Spiral was a throwback to at least one previously printed card.

This card references Living Death and is part of a cycle of rares featuring the Suspend mechanic and having no mana cost, forcing you to suspend them as the primary way to cast them. The cards all callback to one of the color's most powerful spells ever; the others are Ancestral Vision, Wheel of Fate, Hypergenesis, Restore Balance, and Lotus Bloom.

As these cards have no mana cost, they must be suspended to be played from your hand, but abilities such as Cascade treat these cards as if their converted mana cost is 0, allowing you to skirt around suspend and play them immediately!

Not necessarily worse than Living Death since you can tutor for it, then cast it for free using cards like Violent Outburst, assuming you have no other cards costing less. What, you may ask, am I doing on turns 1 and 2 then? Cycling Deadshot Minotaurs of course! But seriously, this thing's interaction with cycling and cascade makes it modern viable.

This card combos well with Gather Specimens. When Living goes to the stack you respond with this. Result: Wrath of God +Liliana Vess's Ultimate ability!
A part of this combo, is a great card, but you have to wait too much. Or its suspend ability costs too much...

@Alun What? This isn't Hypergenisis at all. It's suspended Living Death

I love cards that combo with additional copies of themselves.

May the Living End never... well, end.

I can't believe no one has said this yet. Use it in a dredge deck. Suspend it and then Dredge and Traumatize until it goes off. That way you fill up your graveyard and you can't mill it by accident like you can Living Death

@NeverendingDream: I'm not sure what you're suggesting with that comment, but let's clear up how Grafdigger's Cage interacts with Living End and it's Cascading combo.

Cascade says that you exile cards from your library until you exile a nonland card that costs less. Then you may cast it. So you're casting the card from exile, not from the library. Grafdigger's Cage can't stop the combo there.

Living End says to exile all creature cards from graveyards, then sacrifice all creatures, then put the exiled creatures onto the battlefield. So the creatures enter play from exile, not the graveyard. Grafdigger's Cage doesn't stop the combo there. If Grafdigger's Cage is the graveyard hate of choice, then Living End will be just fine.

T1-T3: Cycle stuff like Street Wraith, Monstrous Carabid and Deadshot Minotaur, getting as many creatures in your graveyard as possible.
T4: Violent Outburst / Demonic Dread, cascading into this.
T5: lol

(Side note: Cascading into it WILL work. This has a CMC of 0, and will be cast without the need to suspend it when either of the aforementioned Cascade cards hit it.)

It's such a cheap, fun deck to make and use. XD

Living Death is better, yeah...but honestly, when you consider Buried Alive and three Worldgorger Dragons....this is reasonable. you know, for pretending to be playing fair.

I would rather have Living Death.
