@ Fragskull

If you've ever DMed for D&D 3rd Ed., you probably have seen it before. The artist, Brian Snoddy, also did the art for a Spawn of Kyuss, a worm-riddled, shambling undead conjured by evil clerics of the necromantic demigod Kyuss in the 2nd Monster Manual from that edition. I thought the same thing when I saw this card, went home and looked it up. They bear a...frightening resemblence, down to the bulbous mounds of flesh on their back.

Amusingly, though the abilities are clearly intended to be used together, this can provide a very strong lock if you get a zombie swarm going by Swampifying all your opponent's lands every turn.

lol ya it's true. I'm making a pauper EDH deck and my friend REALLY doesn't want me to use noxious ghoul because it's too mean. I've been eyeing this guy because my zombie deck is really defensive with lots of removal and creatures that deter attacking. This could be used to sneak damage through in a stalemate as well as lock my opponent out of the game if the circumstances are right.

I think this card's a bit underrated. Combo this with Zombie Master for total LOLZ, or combine with Phage the Untouchable for total destruction. This card has beautiful zombie synergy, and I can't imagine running my Skullbriar EDH deck without it. 4.5/5

this + phage the untouchable is an awesome late game finisher

Perfect example of a good, cheap combo card that can win games.
Combo this with Zombie master and you have evasion for all your zombies.

I can't tell you how many games my Zombie deck has won on the back of this card. So insanely good.

Its been the most helpfull to me late game, early game its ability leaves you open. Its nice that you can play it and use its ability right away since you don't have to use it to tap.

In zombie tribal it can win games. 4.5/5

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
