5/5 for flavor- 3.5/5 for the card itself. A good introduction for new players to graveyard recursion, but not very good at it.

Black Goblin piker with upside is good, I think. Will pick.

At first i wondered why he'd die from throwing that corpse you wanted, then i read the flavor text.

Sheldac, you idiot! I told you to make him get that corpse for me - i never told you to kill him after doing so!

"Bad in constructed", "Ok in limited, sucks otherwise"?

Didn't know there were so many people here that have never heard of pauper, huh.

Early game this guy works well with Xathrid Necromancer especially if you have 2 Corpse Haulers...an unlimited blocker and every time you sac him you get a 2/2 zombie. Late game just use him to get your big creature out of the graveyard. Not a bad card for a common.

Anyone else realize how good this can be with Xathrid Necromancer? Two of these guys and the Necromancer creates a repeatable Zombie token engine.

Meh. Why couldn't he have tapped instead of being sacrificed to activate his ability? As he is, I definitely prefer Doomed Necromancer to him.

Also, the flavour text is really bad and forced, as others have commented. It brings up two questions in my mind: First of all, why is he killing him? I'd expect that it is hard to find people who are willing to desecrate graves and haul corpses, so why is he willing to destroy this valuable asset? This isn't a question of goodness, it's a simply a question of practicality! Also, secondly, why is his blade made out of silver? That's a really bad, not to mention expensive, metal to make a weapon out of, and it's definitely not a good idea to use it against anything other than a werewolf or similar.

Bad in constructed but can really be a role-player in a limited deck.

Decent card. But the necromancer quote seems really forced. Like they're trying to figure out why he dies doing his job.
