And it's finally officially obsolete with the printing of Walking Corpse, being vanilla of the same type, rarity, and body at a cheaper cost.

The 8th edition one was my first zombie card ever. This one has the better artwork though which really fits the flavor text.

I disagree with Aaron's assertion that Warpath Ghoul wouldn't have been playable in Constructed ten years ago. Trained Armodon saw Constructed play and Warpath Ghoul is only slightly worse in a colour that isn't as good at creatures. It'd never have been a superstar, but I could imagine it being at the very least looked at for Constructed play.

Black's Gray Ogre, notable mostly for its awesome flavor text...

Rime of Ancient Mariner flavor text = 5 stars.

Aaron's Random Card Comment of the Day #64, 2/14/10

I've played this card a few times way back in the day (I think four of these plus a few Zombie Masters filled out the Meekstone deck I mentioned a while back), but I didn't really fall in love with it until I started working here.

For many years, I had it firmly planted in my head that Scathe Zombies was going to be the card that appeared in the most consecutive Core Sets—after all, if we're willing to keep printing a vanilla 2Black 2/2, then we're maintaining a pretty consistent power level. Plus, I really love the real-world flavor text from Coleridge. (People seem to think we've discontinued real-world flavor text, but there has been some amount of it in every Core Set. Chances are that you've just stopped paying attention.)

Scathe Zombies didn’t make it into M10—I really loved the idea of a redone Nantuko Husk (Vampire Aristocrat) at ... (see all)

They made it through ten core sets with that flavor text intact... no small feat. Then got kicked out of M10. Poor Scatheys.

I always liked this art the best, it is creepy and has an old decaying feel to it. It's just plain good art.

Horrible card from the viewpoint of actually playing it, and often printed with flat-out superior cards available as commons at the same time.

I suppose the Zombies get a pass since, like Zombies, they hung around forever, and they do have cool flavor text.

Art + Flavor Text = 5 for me
