Not a bad card, especially for a common. It has a nice synergy with zuberas, Nether Traitor, and now Blood Ghast.

Reminds me of Tendrils of Agony except that you get a greater effect from saccing spirits rather than playing other spells before it.
It unfortunately can be countered much more easily, yet it has the most relevant non-creature subtype you could ask for in a Spirit deck.

this is a awesome card it has instantly won so many games.

@tcollins: No, it doesn't! It only works with permanents with the "Changeling" ability, such as Amoeboid Changeling - while their printed types are shapeshifter, the all-creature-types ability is in "changeling" - and the "shapeshifter" creature type doesn't grant that! Renegade Doppelganger is a shapeshifter - that's it.

Seems like it's just a little better now with the excessive spirit production in the Innistrad block.

Brutal card. I've learned not to underestimate it going against a friend's Kamigawa deck. Black/Green will get the most use out of it, what with green making the tokens and black eating them and then eating...players.

A casual finisher is about all I can ask of a common. Not too bad, if you use spirits, which I don't.

you gain life equal to the amount of life the targeted player loses,
or you gain life equal to the number of spirits sacrificed????

Hmm. Assuming you sacrifice each one individually, would it be possible to make an infinite loop out of Nether Traitors, some form of lifegain when a creature enters the battlefield accompanied by Carnival of Souls? You'd start by sacrificing a Nether Traitor, and then you would lose one life and gain one black mana, then you would sacrifice the second Nether Traitor, at which time you lose another life, gain another black mana, then spend the first black mana to bring in the first Nether Traitor, and from the lifegain from Death Greeter or some other effect for that. Then repeat step 2 indefinitely alternating which Nether Traitor, and thus you could win handily with that?

As long as I'm not goofing up the sacrifice part.
