With all the milling and reanimation going on, it was only a matter of time before the old master returned to its duties.

I Love old reprints.

I was trying to decide if I wanted to play Golgari or Simic more in the likely event that all ten guilds are back. Then I saw this and suddenly Simic just seemed so much better.

Course, that only matters if Golgari is back and still graveyard based, but that seems pretty reasonable to me.

I always love seeing a classic get reprinted and this is no exception. Best of all, it avoids Mental Misstep, which would otherwise stop any other form of graveyard hate (Surgical Extraction, Nihil Spellbomb, Grafdigger's Cage, all of which cost one mana).

I like the idea of playing this out of nowhere and instantly with Shimmer Myr. In response to your Living Death...

I actually like this art better than the original. Huh.

Oh, what was that, Rancor?

I'm just happy pithing needle's being reprinted so i can deal with this for my Golgari deck.

@ Bobth:

Incidental graveyard hate does exist, and it's played in every format. Deathrite Shaman is very popular. Most other forms of incidental hate against the graveyard are weaker. In Modern, Grafdigger's Cage isn't even a great blanket answer due the popularity of Living End. End puts the creatures into play from exile and completely dances around Cage.

@ Bobth: I think that a card like this is good designed for at least a couple of reasons: it stops a very dangerous deck type, that is master of recursion and non-interactive gameplay, so a radical solution is good for keep those decks in check. It is very good agains graveyard, but it doesn't do anything else, so is not a card that you can play in main deck, or because it does always something interesting, like Deathrite Shaman...

I like to side in a couple of crypt and fetch them with Tolaria West... Is the kind of move that makes me think that I planned my deck right!

5/5 for being a classic that even almost 20 years later can still make the difference!
