If you pull this in draft, you've basically won. A 4/2 flyer for 4 is already playable in limited, but there is only two cards at common (Vile Rebirth and Pacifism) and two cards at uncommon (Tormod's Crypt and Oblivion Ring) which can deal with this permanently. Worse yet, if you aren't in white you have no ways to deal with it without killing it once. An absolute limited nightmare.

Barring exile from your graveyard, this will just keep coming back. If only it had haste as well...

If you take it for a 4/2 flyer for 4 mana it really isnt terrible. The ability is better then not having it I guess. If you plan on using it again, your burning 4C4R for 8 mana... Now a 4/2 flyer for 8 mana IS terrible. Should of really had the return from the grave cost less. Would have made it into a rare that would be used.

Great card. Underrated as of yet.

Wait, what? How does the nesting habits of a mythical, fiery bird have any correlation with human politics? Is this plain old superstition, or is there something more to it?

I love this card. It's my favorite card in the red deck on DotP 2013. A 4 power flying blocker that I can bring back whenever I choose to spend the mana? It helps a lot that I can play its return to hand ability at instant speed. I got a m13 box and only got one of this guy :(

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
