Clearly needs to be used with Cephalids like in the art! Octo people ftw.

Wow, why does Bidding have such alow rating? It was the cornerstone of many decks during Onslaught block and now that there is such a focus on tribal, this card should be much better than it was then.

its pretty good in EDH too.
Usually people dont focus on a creature type in EDH, but with a Reaper King General you can really hit someone hard with vindicates bringing back all your scarecrows and changelings.

Brutal in an ally deck.

I run this alongside Ashes of the Fallen.

especially useful in a tribal deck with many creatures with cip effects. :)

@applecorn: While tribal, the mechanic, is used only on non-creature cards, the "tribal" being referenced here is simply a deck strategy that uses creatures of all the same type (for example an elf deck, a soldier deck, or perhaps more in color a zombie deck). It can be confusing to keep up with all of the jargon :).

Anyway, this card is rather useful in a tribal deck, with the downside that it's rather dangerous to play against a tribal deck (although depending on what your deck has, deck that might not matter). As a nice bonus, it's the same CMC as Rise from the Grave and the exact same mana cost as Beacon of Unrest. All in all, it's incredibly powerful in the right deck, but sufficiently less useful in the wrong one. A very good Johnny card.

Tormod's Crypt, Nihil Spellbomb and Bojuka Bog make sure the effect is one sided for 0-1 mana.

Best tribes for this: Goblins and Slivers. The reason? Goblin Warchief and Heart Sliver (or Firewake or Reflex Sliver, whichever you fancy). Your dudes have haste, and the game ends in short order :)

atm my favorate move with this is use it in my zombie deck with Noxious Ghoul.

i get 2 bring a bunch of zombies out and all non-zombies get -1/-1 4 each zombie, which can b as high as -10/-10 maybe more.

I call it "Wrath of Zombie God"
