Mill yourself like mad and this will gain you 40+ life alone, with an additional amount of life in the double digits in the form of milled flashback. Nuts.

I can see this being really, really good.

The flashback is a nice touch, since even if your self-milling lands this in your graveyard along with your creatures, you can still use it (once, at least).

Drawing this late in the game with a pile of creatures in your graveyard is nice.

Drawing it late in the game when you have 2 life and your opponent is practically packing up his cards because he thinks the game is over, using cards that he milled into the graveyard for extra life, is priceless.

This card in a self mill deck... One based on Kessig Cagebreakers or Splinterfright is brilliant. Absolutely brilliant.

What's this? Straight lifegain with a rating higher than the basic lands?

In a self-milling deck, this is bananas. In one game I played it once legitimately and twice flashbacked and gained something like 48 life. The fact it's an instant is great, as you can use it whenever you didn't use a combat trick (or deadly surprise-snake).

Man I just saw the full art in an article and holy hell it's fantastic. The skull in particular look like a god damn photo.

And yeah, I guess lifegain can be good when it's something like 3g for 12 either twice, or dumped into the yard reliably with the rest of your stuff.

EXTREMELY annoying in limited. Hitting your opponent with lots of burn spells and board sweepers? Enjoy the 15-20 points of lifegain for your opponent. Twice.
