I use a playset of these in my W/B Reanimator with four Bojuka Bog and a Gravestorm to keep the opponent's graveyard empty and get some card advantage. This will more often benefit you than any opponent anyway if you are smart.

However I also suggest keeping a few other reanimation spells on the side such as Unearth or Reanimate for ressurecting creatures if your opponent has something threatening in their graveyard.

My friends, this was a common because in Urza's Saga, most large creatures had second turn drawbacks, such as echo, or having to sacrifice an enchantment during your upkeep, or not untapping. I thinkChild of Gaea was one of the few. In today's environment, though, this card is unbelievably sick. Ridiculous cards with no drawbacks except cost didn't really exist back then. If you had told me about any of the Eldrazi gods back when Urza's was out, I would have been aghast. However, the main reason this is common is because it was printed in Urza's "What Were We Thinking" Saga, a set that has some of the most broken cards of all time, like Yawgmoth's Will, Tolarian Academy, Smokestack, Back to Basics, and Gaea's Cradle.

But yeah. This is a reanimator staple.

Great with re animator decks because you can almost be assured that you have something in your graveyard better then theirs.

This+ dark ritual + entomb= any creature from your deck you want on the battle field on turn 1.

Of course . . this is from Urza's Saga . .
This card has every right to be the most ridiculous common in the entire universe.
Can this be casted even if the opponent has no creature in the graveyard?
It probably can since it does not target creatures in the graveyard . .

Almost every reanimator deck should have four.

@MasterOfEtherium... Stop Capitalizing The First Letter Of Every Word That You Type. Its Annoying And Makes You Sound Unintelligent. If Your Reading This And Also Find It Irritating, Copy And Past This Whenever You See His Comments (Which Are On Almost Every Card I Look Up :/)

Best reanimator spells out there, or one of the best reanimator spells out there.
