If you're Havengul problems I feel bad for you son, I got 99 problems but a Lich ain't one.

Absolutely amazing. It has a good body for its cost and excellent types.

Oh yeah, I forgot his EPIC ability.

Combined with a Necrotic ooze neither of them will stay in the graveyard for long, and that is only the simplest of possibilities. The combinations this guy will create, not to mention his card advantage generation, will make him a very fearsome threat and a must kill in any deck he appears in. I'm looking forward to running him in EDH, where the recasting aspect will truly shine.

Overall, this guy is amazing, truly worthy of mythic status and something whose potential has barely been figured out yet. He will probably be a powerhouse.

Nabbed one at the prerelease, and good lord. The sheer POWER of this thing cannot be overstated. The ability to recur a chump blocker (like say, Typhoid Rats) over and over is amazing already. Doing it with ETB creatures or anything with Undying? This thing isn't just a lich, it's the best "necromancer" creature card I've ever seen.

Although he had a habit of getting murdered by my Reaper of the Abyss (I was a lucky boy this morning) over and over. That thing's ability isn't a "may" effect!

Well that's a hell of a 4/4 for 5cmc.

Absotively Posolutely beautiful. Never has a more accessible, yet controlled, and combo-prone repeatable reanimation tactic been printed. He's what Sedris the Traitor King could have been were the "or whenever it dies" clause not included in the Unearth ability.

Heartless Summoning

Great Whale

Phyrexian Altar

Warstorm Surge

With the optional safety net of Rune-Scarred Demon.

The most diverse, balanced, and fun card in the set.

For reference...

Perilous Myr + Heartless Summoning

Any other blue/black evoke creature does wonders.

Strictly the best thing since sliced bread.
It's the snapcaster mage of creatures!

Use on Avatar of Woe so she counts herself in the graveyard, then your Lich gets a free "Destroy target creature, it can't be regenerated"

love how it says cast from "A" graveyard. meaning your opponents' too.

opponent: i play Sun Titan then get back 2 Phantasmal Images from my graveyard to copy it
you: yeah im gonna bring back your Snapcaster Mage with my lich now and flashback my Mana Leak on your titan
opponent: awhaaaaaaaaaaaaa *reads lich's rule text, scoops*

Finally, a lich card that doesn't put you at serious risk of sacrificing your permanents or killing yourself. This is imo what a lich should be like, none of that indestructible crap unable to cast a single spell. This has been a long time coming, and I'm glad it's finally here.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
