I'm sorry, what? I couldn't have read that right because that is just absolutely bonkers. Dangit Urza block.

Am i a bad person for comboing this with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and then stacking the triggers so that the creature doesn't get exiled on death? My major problem with all the necromancy and zombify comparisons is that those two do not return to hand afterwards. As i indicated earlier in a persist/undying deck this is utterly bonkers because it gets around the one real downside to the card. This is the sort of card that is above average in many decks but very good with the right cards and it's not even at a build-around level. While i admit that almost all my experience with magic is casual this really seems like the sort of card that can shine given the right deck.

Probably the worst card in the deck.

It's not a bad card. The deck is just that good. LoL

YAY for 60 pieces of broken-ass cardboard for 35 bucks! :D

@DarthParallax
I wouldn't say its the worst card, but its kind of out of place.
Zombify is a worse card than this, but when your fatties are limited you don't want to be exiling them when they die.
This card is great in a deck that has tons of creatures worth bringing back. It's like a more tame Recurring Nightmare. Or a Rancor Animate dead.
The worst cards overall in the deck, I think, are Hidden Horror and Zombie Infestation, which are both functional filler cards.

I disagree about Zombify being 99% better.

Diabolic Servitude means that if your creature dies, you don't have to wait to draw another reanimation spell, but you may have to wait for another creature to hit the 'yard. (Of course, you could already have multiple dudes in the graveyard from cards like Buried Alive and Intuition.) It is true, furthermore, that it is highly vulnerable to enchantment removal (a sac-engine for creatures would at least return Diabolic Servitude to your hand).

Zombify, on the other hand, means that if your creature dies, you don't have to wait to get another creature into the graveyard, but you may have to wait to draw into another reanimation spell. (Of course, you could have used draw engines to get extras, but the same engines should be allowing you to discard plenty of creatures to power Diabolic Servitude anyways.)

Furthermore, if your reanimated creature is exiled with any of a number of c... (see all)
