Love how this was re-worded.
Trying to convince my friend that I just destroyed a game zone = priceless.

Makes taking care of Lord of Extinction a cinch.

Since nobody has mentioned them specifically, I'd like to point out that this card's tap ability disables Undying and Persist. Meaning you can actually use the Treacherous Pit-Dweller.
The caveat is that the ability targets players, not cards. So unless you also restrict their options in some way, you can't usually use this trick offensively.

An effectively superior remake of Scrabbling Claws, which again was already superior to Phyrexian Furnace - nice!
And it works like a cantrip version of Tormod's Crypt as well, given that you don't care for the cards in your graveyard.

This card will definitely find much use in many player's sideboards.

This card is great for ANY sideboard. With so many cards having graveyard abilities (threshold, unearth, flashback, retrace, and other weird cards like Knight of the Reliquary), you can A.) tap each turn to control their graveyard, or B.) wipe it all for 1 and replenish a card. Only good can come from stashing it in your sideboard.

A once-useful card to sideboard against an unearthing deck, which were not all that common, it is now a needed measure to completely hose time sieve decks. As long as you remember to always leave a single mana open, time sieve can't combo off to your demise for fear of losing their entire strategy. 4.5/5

I like how it's a really great graveyard hoser, but one graveyard-user deck can't use it against another graveyard-user deck.

This works great against
Beacon of Unrest

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
