Is it possible this card could circumvent hexproof creatures? When you transform it, attach it to target creature that player controls. Could you attach it to a HexProof Creature?

Not great, but a flavorful replacement for Mind Control in limited

When Ghastly Haunting goes to the graveyard Soul Seizer should return to the battlefield.

Just make it a rare and you're good to go

in spirit decks, this can be good. one slot gives you the option of another attacker OR you can take opponents blocker. however, with prey upon, blood feud, etc. running around, your mind control could be eaten...

Use your imaginenation guys. this is the perfect substitue for mind control in any grave caller deck. think about it. for gravecaller decks a mind control in the graveyard does nothing, but this card will. one question though is it posible to make this a token then transform the token or will something skrew up when you try to have enchanment token?

@KnexWiz You can only transform double sided cards. Tokens and single sided creatures that copy a double sided card CANNOT transform under any circumstances. I'd link the rule somewhere but I'm lazy. It's under Innistrand comprehensive rules for double sided cards if you don't believe me.

This card is far better than it is getting credit for. In Standard this card is a question that demands and answer from your opponent. As a 3 drop you have Drogskol Captain which means this card will always drop after that making this a 2/4 Flying Hexproof for 5 and you could do worse than that. Because it has hexproof your opponent can't just throw removal at it. Chances are if you are at the stage in the game that you are investing 5cmc on critters your opponent is too.

Here's the question they have to ask themselves: How do I invest my blockers? Do I block this creature which isn't even scary or do I block a real threat? If I go with the threat then they could take my threat, so what should I do?

That's the kind of position blue wants its opponents in, it puts you in CONTROL of the game...

This shouldn't be a four of for sure, maybe not even a 3 of. 1 or 2 is more than enough. It can swing a game if you can grab something like Falkenrath Noble/auto... (see all)

Incredibly flavorful, but sadly outclassed by a simple Mind Control.

What's with Innistrad block and sticking enchantments onto 1/3 creatures?

Combo him with Ixidron to get a threat that flies over your opponent's face-down 2/2 creatures.
