Is that the 5E Frozen Shade in the background?

A black False Demise with a pumping effect.

The latter is in general also a handy addition, especially when used with creatures having triggered abilities which get mightier with more power or toughness. (Like Needle Specter or Cold-Eyed Selkie)
Yet keep in mind this might also turn out to be disadvantageous if you plan on casting it on a creature of an opponent which is also playing black.

Nontheless this is a very amiable card. Always glad to see something like this taking in a Common slot.

@Cyberium: No, since the card clearly says "Enchant Creature". The reason it refers to "that card" is because creatures are only considered creatures when they're on the battlefield. In every other zone, they're a creature card (except for the stack, where they're a creature spell). If the card said to return "that creature" to the battlefield, it would technically fizzle since the card in question isn't actually a creature. A minor point, yes, but that's what the Oracle's for.

A small question about the errata...

"When enchanted creature is put into a graveyard, return that CARD to the battlefield under your control."

Does it mean that, if the creature wasn't a creature to begin with (such as maybe an artifact/enchantment/land before), I still get to gain control of it after it dies?

waitasecond... I can stick it on the other person's creature before blowing said creature up? Sounds like a good time.

Most people seem to be forgetting that you can stick this on an opponent's big fatty and then kill it, gaining that creature yourself. Sure, it will cost you this card and probably another one (doom blade or such) but you can then wail away on your opponent with their own big guy. Fun.

This card attached to a Sun Titan makes a virtually indestructible creature, vulnerable only to exile removal such as Swords to Plowsahres. It dies, comes back into play, triggers its ability and reattaches the Aura.

@DaaNz - Nope...the form of a shade. Possessive, not contraction.

@night8883 - Actually Frozen Shade totem armor.

@scarecrowk - I believe that you'd get the card back as the original form (Elbrus in your example), since that's the way it'd sit in the graveyard, even if the card couldn't normally be enchanted by this.

Proto totem armor!
but even better as it abuses come into play abilities.

Great card. Using it in EDH decks to protect and buff my legend. Or slap it on an opponents creature before destroying it.
