Changelings are just so fun though, you could run these with vampires now with Mirri the Curseds and Vampire Nighthawks with decent success, especially if you're short of those pricey Ob Nixilis, the Fallens

No single card has deathtouch and trample.
I wonder if that means you can assign 1 to each blocker, and thus get maximum trample dmg.
A question I'll post to the forums once I'm not at work (where forums are blocked, as is anything with "warcraft" in the name, but this site is viewed almost all day without anyone batting an eye).

@ Heartbreak_two

No, it doesn't. It also doesn't work for wither, annihilator, fade, suspend or any other ability that's not listed on the card itself.

Cairn Wanderer do not gain any ability not listed on him (Flying, Fear, First Strike, Double Strike, any kind of Landwalk and Protection, Deathtouch, Trample, Haste, Shroud, Reach, Lifelink and Vigiliance). So no flanking, banding, anihilator Etc.

He does not gain any abilities while his is not on the battlefield and his does not gain any abilities of creatures not in the graveyard. Nor does he gain abilities of noncreature cards (if you should wonder).

He can not gain static abilities or parts of static abilities that isn't just those key words (works a little different for landwalk and protection, but basicly just read; has it flying or has it flying sometimes, if the latter is true then he don't get flying.), same is true for activated and triggered abilities which he will never gain. That means he doesn't gain abilities from Slivers nor from Level Up cards (unless those cards have abilities when they are level zero).

In other words: Cairn Wanderer only gains abilities fro... (see all)

So, in order to make it as ridiculous as possible, you would need the following cards in graveyards:

Akroma, Angel of Wrath
Drogskol Reaver
Deadly Recluse
Inkwell Leviathan
Progenitus (It's possible to get it in the graveyard if you use Humility or Ixidron to take away its reshuffling ability before killing it)

This gives Cairn Wanderer all the useful abilities it can possibly have, since landwalk is redundant when you have protection from everything. It would even have first strike, even though it's useless with double strike.

Then drop a Concerted Effort.

(If you WANT all the landwalk abilities, you'd need to toss in a Graceful Antelope, Wrexial, Mountain Goat, Mirri, Cat Warrior, Ayumi, The ... (see all)

If you have a Nirkana Cutthroat in the graveyard, does this get first strike and deathtouch? Better dl a new copy of the comprehensive rules. Curses!

Would be a ton of fun in a mono-black hellbent deck that has Vampire Nighthawks and Stillmoon Cavaliers.

Funny, this is the only black creature that has shroud. And only then when you have something else in the gravey with shroud, meaning you need another color in your deck if you want it to be shrouded by its ability, since the only colorless creature with shroud is Drill Skimmer and that is a conditional shroud as well.

seems like buried alive would work well with this

So great that it's splashable. Put it in an angel deck, a soldier deck, anything.
