One of the best flavor texts ever made!
One of the most badass legendary creatures ever made!

Yes, he dies to removal, he is counterable, he doesn't have shroud, evasion, protection from everything, blah, blah, blah... Oh, God, how boring you are!

Volrath must eat Eldrazi titans for breakfast before combat for stronger bones and bigger muscles!!

My favorite black creature and Magic storyline character.

He one hits with Draco and Emrakul, the Aeons Torn, but works well with any big creature and recur-able necromancy (Phyrexian Reclamation, Revive the Fallen, and appropriately Volrath's Stronghold).

Feed him a Filth with an Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth on the field. Shizo, Death's Storehouse works very well with him, as does Rime Transfusion and Dauthi Embrace.

Once you've pumped him up and attacked don't be afraid to Rite of Consumption him.

The art and flavor text for Volrath are PERFECT. What a boss.

I love using this with Reya Dawnbringer. Use Volrath to discard her, resurrect her with any suitable spell, start discarding and resurrecting like crazy. I once got a turn 2 win discarding Autochton Wurm to make Vorath 21/19.

Zodiac Dragon's text was changed when portal cards were made legal, to avoid this kind of thing.

Easy awesome combo:

Turn 1: Swamp + Blood Celebrant
Turn 2: Any other land (Probably Swamp) + Dark Ritual + Culling the Weak (Blood Celebrant) + This (You have 1 extra Mana)
Turn 3: If opponent controls creatures, give fear or Dragon Shadow
Turn 4: Win! (Discard Draco, Autochton Wurm, or Gleemax.)

Strictly better than Volrath the Fallen and I Can't Get Up

OR EVEN BETTER! Pretend it has Granduer and make it a 12/10. Haha black can find a way to give it fear, right? Kaboom.

this + emrakul + chainer = 5 mana drop emrakul with a +1/+1 boost that makes him colorful
then you could even throw a vampiric link on volrath and go to town to fuel your nonsense. Lengdary Win... because they're all legends...

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
