What really does the flavour for me is how erudite he sounds.

Absolutely the funniest flavor text I have ever seen. LOL.

And not too bad a card either. Great for self mill AND getting mana to boot.

I'll take 4 please.

Milling yourself has been a valid tactic for a long time; reanimater decks and Accumulated Knowledge-type cards were around a long long time ago and then Odyssey block block brought around flashback and threshold and made self-mill a wonderful concept.

This card is fantastic utility deck glue, no question.

Obviously needs a mill-based strategy to work, but reasonably effective in such a deck.

I love the flavor text, though if the job market is as terrible in Innastrad as it is in our reality, poor Garl might be better off keeping his lousy job for the time being. Hey, if he's lucky, he might get made into a vampire, werewolf, or some other horror and thus prove to be more useful. I assume that's how promotions work on a plane of horror!

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: You must be Igor.

Igor: No, it's pronounced "eye-gor."
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: But they told me it was "ee-gor."
Igor: Well, they were wrong then, weren't they?
