Gotta respect this enchantment. Only one mana investment for a 5/5 body that shows up at instant speed a couple turns later. Once again, for emphasis, INSTANT SPEED. It's quite easy for someone to forget about your enchantment that's been sitting there unassumingly for a couple of turns, only to have a nice sized zombie pop out of nowhere, eat one of their attackers for lunch, then wreck havoc on the offensive next turn because they weren't ready for it.

That or you can just doom blade a creature for the third counter and do the aforementioned trick even if they aware of it. All and all, a solid and very aggressive black spell.

Or try it with a bloodghast. Bloodghast comes out turn two and basically sticks after that. Add some doom blades and you are looking at some major kickass.

Play with 3 in some combination of Shifting Wall and Phyrexian Marauder for a turn 1 5/5 flying.

I know this might sound a little unconventional, but I really want to play this with Day of Judgment. Nothing says epic like destroying the opponents creature base and then playing a 5/5 zombie giant afterwards.

Eldrazi spawn make it crazy.

I can't help reading this as "Quest for the Gravey Lord"

Plays quite well with cards like hellspark elemetal and ball lightning. Plays even better with eldrazi spawn.

Vampire Aristocrat works wonders with this. For extra fun, sacrifice rotting goblins to the aristocrat!

This card has no draw-backs.

Seems really strong, since black kills creatures all the time. Also, try pairing it with creatures that sacrifice themselves, ie. Hellspark Elemental. A 5/5 body for one mana is nothing to sneeze at.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
