He's just chillin in a graveyard, waiting for a Gravecrawler to come by.

The actual creature itself is almost meaningless when you consider the power of a free sacrifice outlet. Any damage the feeder does is really just a bonus - his main power is forcing your opponent to play around him.

In a weird way he actually reminds me of bushi tenderfoot in that sense. The smartest thing your opponent can do is not get psyched out.

Carrion Feeder becomes absolutely ridiculous with the Zombie tribal base that the Innistrad block brought to the table.

The most obvious one is Gravecrawler, since he can be played from the graveyard as many times as you have black mana... or as many times as you want if you have Rooftop Storm on the field.

Then there are all of the ways to get Zombie tokens, like Army of the Damned. And Endless Ranks of the Dead; the opponent will have to choose between blocking Carrion Feeder or letting him through, and either way the little corpse is going to get HUGE.

ok with the new innistrad set I see this coming back into play, with so many 2/2 zombie tokens being easily gotten, this thing will be easily buffed up.

This is a nasty little beast in a zombie deck, especially one with recurring creatures. *cough* Gravecrawler *cough* Bloodghast. Yes Bloodghast is not a zombie, but it has the feel of one with the whole coming out of the graveyard thing.

For extra beatdown add in Geralf's Messenger, and another creature that pumps by sacrificing. Add in some fetch lands to thin out the deck, and recur Bloodghast, and you're set with your creature base.

Carnival of Souls, Deathgreeter and Gravecrawler infinite P/T and its a rather easy hand.

Ive got a nice combo.
This guy
Rooftop storm
Infinite +1/+1 counters!
tee hee......
Then play altar of dementia and Phyrexian altar for infinite mill AND mana!!! Then play bloodflow connoisseur and attack with your army of 100000/100000s!
Love this guy.
@RedJaron: You call that a combo?

Reassembling Skeleton is the obvious combo here, though Festering Goblin works well too. But if you're willing to splash white, you get can get double duty out of the sacrifice with Unruly Mob. Throw in more twofers like Doomed Traveler and Midnight Haunting and/or Lingering Souls for extra beefing. Top it all off with a Skirsdag High Priest and you can trigger morbid at will.

@Twiddle, No I say add in Diregraf Captain for an instant infinite win. ( Note, have done that with my Zombie deck, once in a six-player match. )

back in the day there was somewhat of an argument: Carrion Feeder, or Nantuko Husk?

It seems that now our favorite little corpse eater is still the best. So many uses for him: Sack a Gravecrawler and have it come back for more good eats, sack a Festering Goblin for easy 1 toughness removal, eat your Graveborn Muse when she starts getting our of control, even sack your Lord of the Undead out from under a pesky Lightning Helix and ruin someone's day.

of course, Husk can do all those things too, but you know what he can't do? Keep his buffs after he eats things. sure you can dodge that lightning helix, but you can't swing for +1 the next turn.

Carrion Feeder, as someone else already said, is great because your opponent must play around it or it or be destroyed
