Pretty good creature for its color/cost... 6/6 flying trampler for 7 isn't nothing to laugh at, specially if zombified by Rise from the Grave. And it's got a lot of sinergy with Reassembling Skeleton and Grave Pact. Its a perfect fattie for a black budget deck.

EDIT: And then, when I noticed I still get a token even if nothing is sacrificed, it became impossible not to add this to my Zombie deck.

This card is kinda-sorta-viable if you equip it with a Nim Deathmantle, because of the ruling stating that if you control no non-zombie creatures, then you won't sacrifice and will still get a zombie. So it sticks a zombie on your field for free and it's a 6/6 flying trampler. So...it's okay, if you get the perfect card to pair it with.

This card is great with Lord Of The Pit or any Devour card. You could always build a non zombie deck with Death Barron to power up the zombies. The price is a bit high for me though even fo a 6/6 flyer with trample.

I use this guy with Springjack Shepherd. I don't know how 0/1 goats become 2/2 zombies, but they do!

a 6/6 flying trampler for 7, hmm expensive and if you dont have a non-zombie you really just paid 7 for a 2/2 zombie

but the rules say that if you dont have any non zombies, you cant sacrifice, but you still get a token

hmm, maybe that Runed Stalactite could help, a 7/7 flying trampling free token generator, requires 9 mana the turn he come out, or maybe some way to revive it early hmmm

Except that if all of your creatures are Zombies, it's just going to eat itself, so the "spit out Zombies" notion doesn't really work unless you can consistently bounce it.

Might work in conjunction with another token generator like Puppet Conjurer to turn 1/1 Homunculi into 2/2 Zombies.

I thought this card was useless until Reassembling Skeleton was printed. Now I'm main decking him in my {W/B} Reanimator. In my opinion, he's rather underrated.

I've had some good games thanks to him, Grave Titan, and Reassembling Skeleton, and Necromancer's Covenant.

He turns my eldrazi spawn (awakening zone) into zombies.
Still... Meh.

too expensive in the face of beeing all in all (not strictly) inferior to the grave titan, theoretical synergy with supply like Awakening Zone or conversion like conspiracy or Nim Deathmantle, but costly

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
