This is what makes Reanimate deck so brutal to play against. You can get out turn two fatty before your opponent can react, especially if you use cards like Iona or Jin-Gitaxias to shut down your opponent for pretty much the rest of the game.

It doesn't even have to be a creature. AND this card is an instant. Absolutely amazing, and definitely one of the top tier black spells in Magic.

@ pedrodyl

Or Songs of the Damned for that matter.

Dark Ritual is too much of a ***. Songs hasn't seen the light of day since the 90s, and I think it deserved at least one reprint. Unfortunately, Wizards probably thought that this deck was already amazing enough...

@TimmyForever: It's a combo card. Oh wait— you're Timmy, not Johnny. That must be why you don't understand.

Avacyn Restored has at least three creatures in it that are candidates for a top-tier Reanimator deck, and they've only spoiled about 20% of the set so far.

One's an 8/8 with "Permanents you control are indestructible." And flying, and vigilance.

ohgod ohgod ohgodohgodohgod. That $30 + $5 you paid for Entomb + otherstuff is going to be one of the soundest investments you've ever made... at least until they re-ban Entomb or Reanimate in Legacy.

@ TimmyForever: If you happened to look at DacenOctavio's comment, you'd see all the autocarded cards besides Swamp are ones that work with this card. The strategy of "reanimator" is to get a creature card into your graveyard, then Reanimate it. It doesn't "harm" yourself, it wins.

you say Jin Gitaxias, I'd say Vorinclex screws then over almost as much and gives you major beatdown to end the game fast.

@timmyforever Of course you don't. You need at least a brain stem to see how this is in any way a good card.
