It's odd that a card simply called "Death" actually brings something back to life.

i thinks it's fun to make the card names correspond, but it's not about the name, i'd have to say life could be very useful to play with a Garruk over run. turn all your lands into 4/4 tramples, nice sneaky attack for ur opponents to crap themselves over

I think Death didn't bring anything back to life, just back to the battlefield to fight again. It could be a ZOMBIE O_O

Grimjawxrules: He said Garruk overrun, not regular Overrun.

It costs 1 mana more than Reanimate with the same effect.

That's an old split card. I've only seen ones from Ravnica.

A powerful reanimation spell and the ability to turn your lands into creatures for a mass attack in one, nifty little package.
Also, this doesn't combo very well with Overrun: Remember that casting Life and Overrun in the same turn requires 6 mana, meaning that 6 of your would-be manlands are going to be tapped by the time your combat phase starts.

If you really want to abuse Life, you should use it in a deck based around Earth Surge and manlands.

This card is full of Irony, since the Trampling 1/1s will cause a player to die! ^_^

(you *DID* give them Trample, right? o_O ARE YOU A GREEN PLANESWALKER OR NOT?)

I love this card-- although it's cheaply costed enough to be a win-condition on either half, it's also a card that's easy to play around in a number of ways:

Having a good Wall creature.

Having a multi-blocker creature.

Having a creature that *must* be multiblocked.

Having a Bigger creature.

Are ALL ways to answer it from the other side of the table, and that's just in non-meta Magic (which is not EXACTLY "Unstrategic" Magic, since I say Tactics are kind of like Strategy), where you don't consider deliberate focused bullet-answers like Counterspell, Terror, Wrath effects, or Lightning Bolt and Drain Life before the opponent can kill you.

It's both consummately fair and yet undeniably powerful! A-TRIPLE-plus D... (see all)

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
