instant speed saves it.

Instant speed is amazing on a reanimation card since it allows you to respond to "enter the graveyard triggers" and reanimate things that sorcery cards can't.

Not a bad way to recover an Inkwell Leviathan, or any other critter with shroud and hexproof. 4cc is expensive for a fragile reanimation effect, though.

During the Lorwyn block I ran a few of these in my Elemental deck, figuring I could save one of my creatures in play from death by reanimating a Nova Chaser or Supreme Exemplar. It was ok. I saved a critter from an Oblivion Ring once or twice.

The best (but rarest) use of this card was to animate a Nova Chaser to catch an elemental played with Evoke, like a Shriekmaw or a Mulldrifter. Evoke's "sacrificed when it comes into play" effect is a triggered comes-into-play ability, so it was possible to respond to Shriekmaw entering play by casting Makeshift Mannequin to replace the Shriekmaw with a Nova Chaser from the graveyard. When Chaser died, Shriekmaw entered play again, killing a second creature and remaining in play.

Get a creature back, except there are strings attached (pun intended).

@ Dark Raider: False. This is instant speed and can be used when Emrakul's shuffle trigger goes on the stack, and then resolves before it.
Maybe you were thinking of Blightsteel Colossus or Darksteel Colossus, which are indeed impossible to put into a graveyard.

Just imagine a colony of faeries pretending to be Emrakul.

@kryptnyt: you do know that it is factually impossible to get Emrakul into your graveyard, right?

worthwhile for using on a creature you are going to sacrifice anyway, if your opponent targets it just sacrifice it for stronghold assassin or phyrexian broodlings (probably the reason it was dead in the first place)

or make the original target one with a good enters the battlefield effect or a really nasty leaves play/enters the graveyard effect

I use this card. You can reanimate Inkwell Leviathan or Kalonian Behemoth before the declare blockers fase. Great trick for reanimate decks.
