Combos with Artificial Evolution so he makes clerics who die and make more clerics.

Supernovae is right.... Tokens do enter the graveyard... So yes there is a loop there... Best thing is to have two Rotlungs... Play evolution on Both of them.... Sack one get two... Sounds like infinite combo to me... Not to mention a huge nantuko husk or fallen angel in play...(sack engine)... 4.5/5... Solid...

It's the zombie so nice, you have to kill it twice. Well, this guy's a 2/2 penumbra creature on its worst day, but a one-man army on its best. Dropping Conspiracy is a nice key for some infinite fun.

@Ethrad: "Tokens don't enter the graveyard, they are markers not objects. A token ceases to exist once it's removed from play, so even if the token was a cleric Rotlung Reanimator's effect only works if a cleric is removed from play to a graveyard, and since tokens can't enter the graveyard there is no loop."

That's not true. From the MTG Salvation Wiki:

"If a token leaves play and goes to another game zone, it will be there only briefly before ceasing to exist as a state-based effect."

That's moment is enough to activate the triggered ability before the token disappears.

@tcollins: I believe you mean Changelings. Any old Shapeshifter won't be Cleric unless it copies a Cleric (the Evil Twin you linked, Clone, etc.) or they have Changeling/are Mistform Ultimus, or have some other way of becoming a Cleric (Duplicant).

Already a very useful card by itself, and especially useful both in cleric or zombie tribal decks.

You can create a nice loop with Conspiracy as well.
"The 2/2 Zombie Cleric token died? Well who cares, here's a new one."

It's also a fun candidate for Soul Foundry since his ability is c^umulative.

You're wrong. Don't wan the newbies to get the impression that what you're saying is right. Tokens enter the graveyard, but are removed upon entry.

@Callipsa: Don't pay any attention to DaaNz. He's just trying to look cool by constantly saying Storm Crow is teh 5hits so it can become an internet meme ala Chimney Imp. But what he doesn't get is that Storm Crow isn't even that horrible of a card.

Anyways Rotlung is insane in a cleric deck. Pair him with Cabal Archon, and you have either a killer way to Burn your opponent to death or charge with an army of Undead 2/2's.

Conspiracy + Altar of Dementia/Blasting Station/(Life Chisel + Sanguine Bond)/Carrion Feeder/Fallen Angel/Phyrexian Ghoul/Phyrexian Plaguelord/Vampire Aristocrat/Phyrexian Altar/Ashnod's Altar = Lulz.

And these are just mono-black compatible ones. My first instinct is always Goblin Bombardment.

DaaNz Comment made no sense to me, but yes this card is godly. Anti-board wipe, is a good deal just flat on his own, his ability stacks with himself, and he makes so many wonderful sacrifice engine combos just work.
