IF I use this to cast Obzedat, Ghost Council from the graveyard, does that mean they're helping themselves?

@ The_Evictee

Or if Teysa gets reanimated by this, is she talking to herself?

This is way awesome. Mill yourself until turn 5, cast this, return a Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker, Omniscience, or even Gleemax, and win.

Every permanent type has a better reanimate spell than Obzedat's Aid, except planeswalkers. That alone makes this card frightening, consider planeswalkers don't have summoning sickness issue and their abilities cost naught to activate.

I'll just be getting back my Elspeth, Knight-Errant thanks.

At last, a way to reanimate noncreatures and cheat them into play from the Graveyard! And it's even in Unburial Rites' colors.

Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker is almost certainly the strongest thing in standard you can grab with this. Fun times.

HIlariously though Five mana and two colors on a sorcery is actually a pretty FAIR price to pay for reanimation, when reanimation plans to get as good a mana break as possible.

Powerful in how unique it is, but I think the biggest hurdle in standard is getting over how the majority of mill-searchers like mulch and grizzly salvage are not hitting sorceries.

Obzedat's Aid is a cool card for standard. Permanent is the key word here. For most decks lands probably not, artifacts most likely not, enchantments not really, creatures yes, and planeswalkers finally. Mana cost 5 is fair but 4 would have be excellent! Good overall but not for every deck. Certain decks can take advantage of it for sure. 3.5/5.

Dear Rise from the Grave Haters: We know you don't ACTUALLY think 5 mana is too much. You are just sick greedy bastards. Well we are too. Here you go, we know you know this is what Liliana has actually been meaning to cast for a while now. ;D

Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker: "Hey... where the hell am I?"

Teysa: "The Obzedat have revived you with purpose. Don't squander their blessing."

NB: "Puny woman, do you think you can stop the mighty Nicol Bolas? I do as I please!"

Teysa, to Obzedat: "Shall we evict him? He's got attitude problems..."


*does a Merciless Eviction*

NB: "Huh... what? No! Wait! Stop! AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!"

Teysa, to Obzedat: "Okay, you said something about blue magic..."
