This is not that bad of a card.
Any recurring "return from graveyard to battlefield" is a good thing in my book.
The payment is slightly steep, but it's still profitable.

So for the cost of 2 black mana and 2 life i can get my buried alive hellkite overlords in for the kil?
Slower than standard reanimator decks but still good. 4/5l

Primeval Titan would work perfectly with a sac outlet or even just attacking each turn.
A decent card from what I can see if you play to it's strengths.

How i love thee Strands of Night, let me count the ways.

1) when you start at 40; 2 life to recur your best guy is gravy
2) that says ETB people! thats, i evoke my shriekmaw, then bring back my shriekmaw suck it other creatures.
3) The art is kick-ass
4) Makes EDH staples like Yavimaya Elder even better!
5) Works with the legendary Eldrazi in order to reanimate them.
6) Tired of stalemates? This card and its on board recursion engine will dominate a game if left unanswered!

The only downside is obvious, this is not an early game card because it can wreak your mana base if you abuse it to much to early. I have found strands of night to excel in black decks that are paired with green so that you can use land ramp as recursion spells! As mentioned above it works fabulously at thinning your deck while recurring green ETB put a land into play card. Also.... can you say Woodfall Primus/autoc... (see all)

@Krypnyt: Not bad, but I think it would be much more 'black' if it made an opponent lose 2 life instead and cost 1BlackBlack. Or maybe it could even have both effects, though that would be pushing it for an uncommon.

Zombie Gardener {2}{B}
Creature- Zombie uncommon
When Zombie Gardener enters the battlefield, you may put a Swamp from your graveyard into play. If you do, you gain 2 life.

Solemn Simulacrum, almost completely pays for itself and nets you a card every time it dies.

I think you're forgetting what Emrakul's last ability is.

And artifacts die to counterspells as well, but I agree with what you're saying.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
