Cemetery Reaper works both with and against.

I have a grave feeder deck using Mesmeric Orb. It struggles sometimes with defense. This guy fixes that problem and since the crux of the deck is Mesmeric Orb, I never actually draw him. He is ALWAYS in my graveyard.

Interesting card - not a bad combat creature, and it can return later for more combat while destroying something in the process. If not used in Standard (maybe in Mono-black control), this fella probalby has a home in Commander where creatures that can comeback AND have a trigger when doing so are always welcome.

What may stand out the most is that this guy's Eygptian theme... very strange... I don't think we've seen anything like that since Arabian Nights. Maybe a hint at what is to come?

notice you don't even need to have any swamps like in snuff out or spliced horobi's whisper, so you can run it in mono blue or mono green with discarding effects like fauna shaman, wild mongrel, merfolk looter etc

You definitely get a lot out of this card. Not only is it a hefty 5/4 deathtoucher, but you can use ... say ... Merfolk Looter and continuously discard it and wipe your opponent's creatures (or just have them not attack, or whatever). Obviously something like Jund Charm or Bojuka Bog kind of hurts this card.

He's here to play the shadow game...

You could keep discarding him with Zombie Infestation. Or Merfolk Looter. Plus, it looks much like Phylactery Lich, doesn't it?
