Reassembling skeleton-style ability for any creature can be potent. For instance, composite golem.

"The equip cost is a little high thought."

Really? For a colorless, repeatable Rise from the Grave effect? That gives the creature a boost and evasion? I'd say the cost is just right. It may only target your creatures, but that's still a really good deal

This card has been fun in combination with my Precursor Golem

I imagine R&D is keeping close tabs on this card, because it screams "Abuse me!" and yet, since its printing, the only card that comes close to accomplishing abuse is Priest of Urabrask - and that falls short unless copied by Phyrexian Metamorph with a Mirrorworks on the field and a sacrifice engine in place. Even then, all that's accomplished is a messed up variant of Exarch Twin minus the haste. Multiple Mirrorworks could lead into an infinite red mana combo in this scenario, but I doubt if all the pieces required would ever make it to and stay on the battlefield.

There are better ways to use this, such as having multiple Pawn of Ulamogs and/or copies of them in play, as well as Priest of Urabrask or Emrakul's Hatcher for recurring fun, but pieces of that combo will soon be rotating out. The same can be said about Lotus Cobra, which, with... (see all)

@Breaking this in Standard, as of 12/3/2011:
I had this big, long, thoughtful post about what kinds of cards we should look out for if we want to break Nim Deathmantle, but then I found something very simple. It requires a huge board commitment but only one specific card.

Village Bell-Ringer

Avacyn's Pilgrim
Birds of Paradise
Deranged Assistant
Llanowar Elves
Elvish Archdruid
Alloy Myr
Plague Myr
Palladium Myr
Gold Myr
Silver Myr
Leaden Myr
Iron Myr
Copper Myr

Free Sac-Engines:
Devouring Swarm (infinitely large flying creature)
Flesh-Eater Imp (infinitely large flying/infect creature)
... (see all)

alpha tyrranax + grafted exoskeleton + this = 10/9 intimidate, infect, that was a fun way to finish the game

i find that this card is great on many levels, such as that its colorless, allowing revival for nonblack decks

This will finally allow me to use Grave Titan to its full potential in a zombie deck. Not to mention that it won't be nerfed by Noxious Ghoul upon attacking anymore.
