I believe Daanz is providing an insightful critique of not the mechanics but the art.

Looks like a muddy Dan-Dan. Great card though!

Top 5 card from FE. Grinding your opponents graveyard for 1/1s for 1 is too efficient to be ignored. 5/5

1 mana is amazing. Two cards is nothing and you can do it to any graveyard, at instant speed. Deals with nasty threats like dredge or flashback or unearth or reanimators. The 1/1s will add up and provide nice recovery to board wipes. This thing is main deck material 4.5/5

Umm, DaaNz has no idea what he is talking about. There are a billion decks that use graveyard fodder for power, Death Soil eats zombies and gives you creatures! At a cost of only 1C per activation, this is a pretty good card, particularly after something like a Wrath of God obliterates a bunch of creatures.

This is the version I have somewhere. This is my favorite variation of the flavor text, but I think it also has the worst art in MTG history. Just because a card has "soil" in the name doesn't mean you should only draw dirt, Drew Tucker. The version with the rake is much cooler: even though the saproling in that one is a green turd with arms, it beats dirt and an indistinguishable blur that might be a root or something.

The card itself is too slow to use in its original purpose, a saproling deck, where creatures in your graveyard is generally the result of you getting set back, and your opponent may or may not be using a lot of creatures. Back in Fallen Empires, there weren't that many saproling cards, but today there's too many better choices to put in a saproling deck to need this.

Not bad for any deck with green that's running a lot of disposable creatures though.

so first you vomit, and then you eat the vomit and shit it out onto the card. tada, night soil

The art really leaves something to be desired.

Decipherability, for one.

Well, it does provide a way to eat opposing graveyards, which can be handy in Commander.
