Planning to test this in my Kor Armor deck. Seems like it could be fun with a Kor Outfitter and Argentum Armor. Deathmantle returns the Outfitter who then attaches the armor to itself.

After much playtesting, this can be a bit absurd. Use with Pawn of Ulamog for sure, it can get out of hand and force a concession rather quickly.

Best fun with a Death Cultist out. Continuous blocker that can sac every turn. Really can screw up an opponents strategy. Also fun with various graveyard damage cards, like Blistergrub or Perilous Myr.

I keep a Necrotic Plague floating around since you can turn it into a one sided game of hot potato.

Update: Puresteel Paladin should make this a very usable card...in that it enables metalcraft, gives you a +2+2 intimidate black boost, and late game the graveyard recursion should be very very deadly.

Attack with a creature with infect, let it do its duty and weaken your opponents blocker, when it goes to the yard bring it back for another go next turn, with a power boost, and evasion.

I'm wondering how this would work with Tel-Jilad Fallen. Protection from artifacts wouldn't apply while it's in the graveyard, so it would be a legal target, but it says to return the creature to play and attach Nim Deathmantle. Would it come back into play, but not equipped? Or would it have to be equipped for the ability to follow through?

"So you attack me? Good that I have my Empyrial Archangel on the field. Oh my, it dies! Now I'm vulnerale to your next attack which clearly kills me. Oh, wait! I just pay {4} and return the Archangel to the field with my Deathmantle. My turn?"

I think they put the wrong watermark on this card.

The winner at my pre-release sealed had this card, Hand of the Praetors, Contagion Engine, and a bunch of infect creatures to give intimidate to. It was pretty evil. The rise from the grave effect was just not even necessary.

@Theostratus: when cards go to the graveyard, they always go to their owner's graveyard, regardless of who cast/controlled the aforementioned card. Therefore, there's no way you can steal your opponent's creature with this.

@Fategus: Yeah, sort of, but that means you must have 5 mana available to cast Putrefax the first time, and then have another 4 if you want to be able to return it to the battlefield when it bites the dust at end of turn (it's too late after that). That's a total of 9 mana in one turn. Not exactly stellar, right?
