Thats the funniest creature type ever. Before the Great Creature Type update I guess Mistform Ultimus could be an "Uncle Weird" or an "Istvan."

He may not know what a Wurmcoil Engine is, but he'll hold that sucker off for as long as you need him to.

They totally ripped this guy for Resident Evil 4. "I see you carry the same blood as us."

My uncle has a playset of these in a mono-black deck that he guards very jealously. I love this guy. He's got kind of a Storm Crow or Chimney Imp charm to him.

I too fell in love with Uncle Istvan - if nothing else to create a deck called Uncle that hopefully elicited that kind of reaction from my opponent.

Oh who am I kidding. Like Aaron, it is because he is named Uncle. Unfortunately, for any deck focusing on something other than Uncle he always felt weird...like that family member that sits around at Thanksgiving with his feet up on the table, swilling PBR, telling stories about the type he was in-country in Da Nang (when the closest he got to action was hitting a cow on some Pennsylvanian back road).

That all changed when they printed Homicidal Seclusion. Now, you too can get the Deliverance feel!And, if you throw in some old school Terror and Pit Trap, you have the making of Jeepers Creepers.

Lifegain and little penalty in black, Awesome. Getting crazy deck ideas from oddly-named cards since 1994? Yes please!

This is probably Aaron_Forsythe's lowest rated comment.

If only it were a "Summon Legend"
Then it would say "Uncle Istvan counts as an Uncle Istvan"

I have an idea for why he is named like a unique character but is not a legend.
It's because everybody has an Uncle Istvan. It's like having a Cousin Vinny.

I really gotta get me one of these someday.

"Mah name is UNCLE Istvan... no relation."
~Uncle Istvan
Crazy black dude. Weird connection to white. Old and has a big butt... Aaron McGruder must play Magic! =)
(PS: The Boondocks is what I'm citing for anyone still scratching their heads there)
