@kreewlin: Are you saying you want to sex with Chainer?

Such a nasty general! Life loss doesnt really matter just make sure you have Sangromancer, and any life gain equipment and you'll be sure to gain your life straight back, while dealing a huge blow to thier life and establishing huge board pressence. Also make sure to have a sac outlet like Viscera Seer so that if they board wipe you sac all your creatures in response and let chainer die so that they do not get exiled.

This as your general in a Commander deck with Damnation, Hex, Plague Wind, hexproof/shroud equipment and sufficient mana sources: you won't be disappointed.

Oddly enough, Chainer may be the only minion who is also a lord. His abilities scream to be built around, and you can do nasty things with his repeatable reanimation, and also by abusing his nightmare banishing clause, and don't forget that he also buffs core set veteran Nightmare in addition to those in his block.

I love him. He's just so much fun to play!
I use him in my cleric deck since there I have a lot of life to spend.


Imagine you're an evil overlord and you have this amazing first lieutenant, who doesn't want to manage the army because he likes kicking ass too much. Here's your minion legend ;)

PS: Also love his edict! (Chainer's Edict)

@unban: He is the minion of Cabal Patriarch. As are Phage and Braids, Cabal Minion

So cool flavor wise. I already kinda considered this to be what is happening when you cast horrors and such, but the idea that he's in your head and you're fighting in his arena (so to speak) against all kinds of unspeakable horrors.. is awesome.

I agree, Chainer is the man. He makes the perfect backbone in black/white deck. Keeps my lifelinkers on the field, and takes their dead. What more could you ask for?

my friend had Silvos, Rogue Elemental and Avenger of Zendikar. I was at 5 life , had this card in play. I killed the avenger of zendikar, brought it back with 2 life remaining and ended up winning. GG
