Sweet flavor text, though.

Dread Return and Vigor Mortis are both better cards than this. Not strictly better, but they're the same converted mana cost, can be played mostly in the same decks, and offer additional options. Dread Return can technically be played for free (free being no mana), and Vigor Mortis is nice for decks that care about +1/+1 counters. However, splashability makes this card stand out.

A must have in any tribal Zombie deck.

I prefer Reanimate, but I threw four of these into my U/B reanimator.

I don't mind paying 3B for a Demon of Death's Gate, or a Pestilence Demon at all!

sure, it may not be as good as the other reanimate spells, but if you're playing sheoldred turn 4 I don't think you'll be complaining.

@blindthrall - it's a way to get expensive creatures(or creatures you don't have mana for - bring in a blue creature in a mono-black deck) from your graveyard onto the battlefield. Use something like Putrid Imp to discard costly creatures into your graveyard and bring them into play for less.

My jimmies will be eternally rustled by the fact Rise from the Grave turns the creature into a zombie, but this doesn't.

Beacon of Unrest is a lot cooler than this card, but costs 1 more mana to cast.

"Strictly worse than Dread Return"

Dread Return requires an additional black mana, disqualifying it from being "strictly better".
