Nearly every single card in Time Spiral was a throwback to at least one previously printed card.

This card represents the villainous wizard from Magic's Ice Age; Lim-Dûl raised armies of rime-encrusted zombies in an attempt to help his demonic masters, Leshrac the Nightwalker and Tevesh Szat, shatter the protective spell over Dominaria, the setting for the bulk of Magic's early sets.

Lim-Dûl was untimately defeated by Jaya Ballard and sent into exile on the plane of Shandalar (the setting of most modern Core Sets, like M13.

He makes quite a good general in EDH. Used with things like Avatar of Woe, Butcher of Malakir, Grave Pact, etc.

This will be the best card in my accent deck.

I'm trying this bad boy out in my zombie horde deck. If you don't kill him, he makes all the zombies have infinite regeneration, and if one your creatures died, it's now part of the horde, and it will regenerate forever too.

Okay, a Necromancer, and the most prolific of flavor texts in his home set Ice Age. Jaya Ballard take's the cake for most popular, but Lim-Dul has so many awesome things to say all through Ice Age, especially with his Dark lord and Master, Leshrac. Lim-Dul also spans into blue and red, both with named cards and flavor text. With the emergence of this card finally being printed , like all the big name Planeswalkers, it makes for the fun task of building a theme deck, trying to make all the flavor text and named cards work:) In addition, Lim-Dul actually is a very playable card when you stop and realize what all his flavor text cards do, and the SHEER number of zombie cards out there! You really don't NEED to worry about making a creature a zombie when you have greats like Haakon, Stromgald Scourge paired with Buried Alive and Stromgald Crusader. Plus coming out of Coldsnap, fits the original theme of the Frozen Necro Lim-Dul... (see all)

I was going to point out that he must have been plucked out of the time stream before he got his horns, but then I noticed that you can definitely see one of them in the upper left part of his head.

For those of y'all that don't know, Lim was given horns by Leshrac for plotting against him (or for not finding something Leshrac was looking for, I forget which reason it was, though Lim did both). You can see the horns in the art for the Ice Age Dark Ritual.

5/5 because IT'S FREAKIN' LIM-DÛL! He's like the Urza of Ice Age block!

His first ability is a triggered ability, so it is unaffected by the “summoning sickness” rule. His second ability is an activated ability, but it doesn’t contain Tap or Untap in its activation cost, so you can activate it immediately.

probably the best necromancer of the game.. respects..

Ironically, doesn't combo well with Call to the Grave, unless you Zombify him first. While there are ways to do it, it kind of runs counter intuitive to spend your card advantage making creature advantage. I'd rather just play my Severed Legion, Doom Blade any potential blockers and kill my opponent before he has creatures worth stealing.

Course, that's just me.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
