As if Animate Dead didn't cause Oracle enough hysterics, now the effect is on one of the "flash and sac" cards that caused horrible "at end of turn" abuse!

Not that it's a bad card.

For once, I find the Oracle text much more awkward than the original text.

The guy in the art isn't being reanimated...he's just been shown that rules text for the first time.

I actually prefer the original wording to the Oracle wording!

The Oracle wording for this hurts my head.

Hey guys, the Oracle wording is such that they can make Online program for this card. The main problem IMHO with oracling today is that the templates is made programmable. Reading programming code, even if it is translated to english, is cu_mberson as you need to follow the control structure.

There is at least one good thing about templating: Everything before colon is cost, everything after colon is part of the resolution.
