A great, great way to get rid of your creatures. The ability is cheap and comes with the added benefit of extra life and the guy it comes on is reasonably costed as well.

I've always liked sac engines, while the 1 colorless is annoying it's not way too high. The effect is nice too, in the right deck it can give you tons of life when you need them.

At the pre-release i actually did steal a tree of redemption and sac it using this. Totally made my day.

Anyone else seeing Green/Black as the most comboriffic duo in Innistrad? Combine with Tree of Redemption. Also turns your creatures into explosives if you have a Sanguine Bond out, so that's another point in this card's favor. This guy could be one hell of a sac outlet, depending on what the rest of the block holds.

I had this with Skirsdag High Priest and Village Bell-Ringer at prerelease. One mana for four life and a 5/5 flying demon? Yes.

Won me more than a couple games.

This will be replacing Proper Burial in my reanimate EDH deck.
Not only is the ability very cheap, it enables the sacrificing as well unlike Proper Burial. It's also much easier to get back a creature that's CMC is 2, than an enchantment that's CMC is 4.

This was in my first ever deck (the Innistrad intro pack). It is one of the reasons I became a massive fan of magic, and in my opinion it is one of the best designed cards of all time.

Awesome utility, awesome memories, awesome uncommon.

After you declare blockers, you can use him to sac one of your chump blockers that would have died anyway. The attacker is still blocked. (Of course this doesn't work against trampling.) This also stops lifelinking and anything that triggers from combat damage being dealt.

This guy should be awesome in limited, but it still makes me sad they removed combat damage from the stack.

This guy is your morbid enabler.
