Having Snapcaster Mage in the same environment, this Lich is some serious power...

Totally unfair with Snapcaster Mage. I could see him in Birthing Pod decks too; you can keep recurring, say, a 5-mana creature and roll out another titan every turn.

The Johnny in me wept tears of ecstasy when this was previewed. That moment I knew I wanted Dka. A pity I didn't pull one in the PR.

What about comboing this with Heartless Summoning, Priest of Gix and Perilous Myr. 'cus there is no limit to how many times you can use his ability right?

One of the coolest effects ever made. Cast everything. I'm considering this guy for my horde deck as a huge boss to deal with, but he might be way too strong. He'd get all creatures from all graveyards and anything that dies would be stolen by him. I suppose with just 1 though, you just need to kill him and he's easier to kill than an enchantment or sorcery.

Notice how it does not exile the card, so you can cast your putrefax again.
and again.
and again.
am i making myself clear here?

This thing deserves its spot and much more. Great art/color/ability/cost/durability. Your creatures only cost 1 more to activate. Heartless Summoning will now actually be a solid pick in draft or lucky in sealed if you get this thing. Though i think he is more fun I'll wait until later rather sell him now since people are really overpaying since they are eager. Just like Sorin. Liliana is an example of that.

I've made a zombie deck using one of these it combos well with Fleshbag Marauder. just repeatedly - your opponent sacs a creature for 3B.

@Griffyn16 : To answer your question, no it's not instant speed. The key word in the card is cast. You can use the Lich's ability at any time. But whatever you target, you're still casting the creature and It still follows the rules of casting creatures. So you can't normally cast a creature at instant speed unless it has Flash.
