Budget alternative to Tombstalker in Pox decks. And even better, in some ways.

love how this thing works on mill too, one of the few cards where it says "from anywhere" rather then "from the battlefield"

turn 2 - suspend this guy

turn 3 - cast Glimpse the Unthinkable Congrats, turn three 4/4 with fear!!!

You know, I knew of both of the cards but never made the connection.

See: Quest for the Nihil Stone

Hum, would work well in mill decks, if you needed a 4/4 fear...

(You shouldn't want a 4/4 anything in a mill deck, you want more mill or better blockers OR something, aggressive creatures aren't the thing)

Although the card itself is alright, and pretty good in a mill deck, he is not very useful in a mill deck (if you get what I'm saying here)

Play with Vulturous Zombie in a Mill Deck.

I have to disagree on those saying that you wouldn't want this on a mill deck.

That statement is true if your goal is to mill out your opponent to achieve victory. But you can build a mill deck where milling is only a means to an end. With cards like Jace's Phantasm, Wight of Precinct Six, Consuming Aberration, etc. it's actually a pretty good beatdown deck with mill as a ressource generator (rather than a goal in itself).

I put this guy sometimes in decks of mine with a chunk of discard. That way, this guy comes into play very quickly, and a 4/4 fear (with haste) is nothing to sneeze at.

Very powerful in Mono-Black Control with discard. Suspend Nihilith on turn 2, then cast Damnation on turn 4, killing all other creatures and unsuspending Nihilith.

In my opinion, should be uncommon. A four/four with intimidate is nice, but not fantastic. It'd be a pretty strong uncommon, but a weak rare.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
