Some of my favorite Magic art ever, the card itself looks insanely cool, and the whole thing just begs you to build around it. Love it!

Demonic Collusion should work great with this. When you buy it back, discard your Evershrikes and get the best enchantment in your deck.

One of the coolest looking creatures in the entire game, and being WhiteBlack that's no surprise.

Revive it with Edge, drop a Daybreak Coronet and Hyena Umbra on it for safety, and go to town.

I chucked this into the recent Aura Planechase deck, thinking it'd go well in it what with all the auras and stuff. First match with him, he ended up in the graveyard early on - I think to a Bloodhusk Ritualist.

Turn three, I drew into a Rancor. That was pretty much it from then on.

Rancor is good, but if you want something within the colors, you can go for Spirit Loop to keep it in the game. It's then a 4/4 flying lifelink that can return into play from the graveyard for 4 mana.

Edge of the Divinity is another great thing to slap on it as it immediately turns it 7/7. If you also have the aforementioned Spirit Loop, you have a 9/9 flying lifelink.

I wish it had converted mana cost 6... you don't want to hard cast it anyway. But if it cost just one more, you could combine this with all the dragon auras for ridiculousness.

I'm surprised this never saw serious tournament play, at least when lorwyn was in standard. It's got a decent recurring ability that makes it hard to kill. Yeah, hardcasting it kinda sucks, but like others said, there are ways to get it into your graveyard without hardcasting it (like discarding it via lightning axe or something), and bringing it back afterwards shouldn't be a problem. The other thing is, the problem with auras is that you can get 2-for-1'd, but since players can't respond between the time evershrike returns from the graveyard and when you put an aura on it, it can easily be saved.

I must be missing something that made this card not good enough for tournaments.

The secret to this card is actually rancor.. you can revive him over and over and over. It comes back into play with rancor even following a wrath of god as a 6/4 flying trampler for only 3 mana. As long as it isn't exiled you can revive it as much as you want. There are several other enchantments which either can be returned from graveyard to enchant a creature entering play, or played from the graveyard. Really needs a deck built around it, or an enchantment deck with celestial ancient.

edge of divinity and you have a 7/7 flying for only 3 from your grave :P
