This is a land cycling card, not a creature. If it wasn't more expensive than it was worth it would be overpowered. Then, say, if you have more than enough lands and you don't need a land cycling card later in the game, it is still somewhat useful as a creature if drawn. a 2/4 creature with fear, which may be able to act as that one blocker you need to stay alive or sneak in that little bit of damage you needed to snatch a victory from defeat. Dual use cards are pretty nice, and I'm somewhat surprised at the one-sided reviews it is getting. Any zombie deck in standard should be running four of these as a staple for getting the mana you need to win.

At half a glance, it's CC is rubbish... but it's got Island AND Swamp cycling, AND Fear, AND it's a Zombie.

There are great perks to using this in a U/B Zombie deck. In the company of cards such as Zombify, Death Baron, and Avatar of Woe the advantages FAR outweigh the gripes if you ask me. The 6 CC is way too high to pay straight up,... so, cycle him, then rise him from the grave and get a Death Baron or a Cemetery Reaper in play. Think outside the box.

Also, i LIKE the art a lot! Ordered two of these for xmas.

Instant speed Sylvan Scrying for Steam Vents, Hallowed Fountain, Godless Shrine, Overgrown Tomb, Blood Crypt, Watery Grave, Breeding Pool; and it feeds Soulless One. That's like being a Solemn Simulacrum for zombie decks.

I actually like the artwork. It's very unsettling.

This card and the others like it were printed specifically for cascade decks to have a land fetcher that the cascades would skip over. Theyre filler cards still though.

This card is basically a tutor for lands with the ability to be a creature (albiet an inefficient creature) in a pinch. Deserves at least 2/5.

Why does this have the lowest rating? It's certainly not great, but it is decent in Limited.

I'm glad the card isn't good enough to make me resent the bland artwork. I hate it when a great card looks crummy on the table.

Why all the hate? In the proper deck, this is a very good card. It all depends what you use it for. I have it in a blue/black zombie-control deck and its very useful. Use it for cycling, toss it to the grave then raise it if you need it for cheaper...or just leave him there to get an Avatar of Woe faster ;) If you bring it back, its nice to boost Lich Lord of Unx's second ability. You'd be stupid to play it straight up for its cost.
