Surprised no one here has noticed the synergy with Mimic Vat yet. You can use it to sac the card you want to imprint (anything with an ETB effect, for instance), and then once it's imprinted you can pay 5 instead of 3 and get an extra 2/2 by sacrificing the token you were gonna have to exile anyways.

If you do this with Solemn Simulacrum you get the added bonus of drawing a card every turn because the tokens die instead of being exiled.

I've found this incredibly useful. Even by itself, once you get a token going it can block and sacrifice over and over and over. If you run with Skaab Ruinator, you can sac 2/2 creatures with ETB/LTB effects (Solemn Simulacrum, AEther Adept, Gravedigger, etc) for no board change but extra Ruinator food. At worst, it's {1}{U} for something that can effectively block twice.

Nice card, combo enabler and there are a lot of sinergy with other cards... Nice picture, also!

3.5/5

However, I don't understand a couple of thing, about flavour:
2/2 for an Homunculus isn't a bit too much? Looking at Puppet Conjurer and other Homunculus, it seems that an Homunculus should be a 0/1 or 1/1 or the like...
I think that this should make 2/2 black zombie tokens, like a lot of other cards in Innistrad set... Much more flavour!

This guy gets a 5 from me, partially for the flavor and partially because he always seems to win me the game in limited. He triggers morbid, he gives me a 2/2 for the "cost" of untapping my Stormbound Geist and enlarging it, and he chumps like a boss while Murder of Crows digs up something mean to give to Invisible Stalker.

And his crowning moment of awesome: using Traitorous Blood to steal some big stupid angel that was about to kill me (no, I don't play white very often), attacking with it, and then homunculizing it.

And folks... any draft where the play of the night involves the made-up word "homunculize" is a good night.

It may not seem like much, but I just made a B/U/W deck that uses this for Skirsdag High Priest's Morbid ability. Running it alongside Blood Artist and Unruly Mob makes sacking the token a constant nuisance. Not the best, but a 3/3.5 in the right deck makes this card worth it.

@BigPimpin
Actually it doesn't, tokens stop existing once they hit the graveyard, or any other zone except the combat zone.

at the release party, this + Mentor of the Meek ended up being 2U: draw a card.

Oglor's endearing witticisms are making it hard for me to be truly horrified by Innistrad.

Keep the faith, Oglor buddy.

While this card's most apparent use is to activate Morbid, it also serves another purpose: putting a creature card into your graveyard without diminishing your board presence. And a stitcher certainly would like a nicely stocked graveyard, wouldn't he?
