This is a pretty awesome card for a Soul Sisters deck.

Even if your just using it for the mana, its still taps for any color and doesn't come into play tapped.

Personally, I love "drawbacks" that can be turned into advantages. Even if it takes a lot of work to use them.

If you like this card, you'll probably also like Varchild's War-Riders.

This actually works fairly well in a Modern/Legacy legal Dredge deck; it lets you use Darkblast. That's fairly important in the early game. If your Putrid Imp gets countered, you don't have any way to discard your dredger. Forbidden Orchard + Darkblast gives you a powerful alternative against control decks.

Granted, in the mid-game you won't want to Darkblast an opponent's critter because its death would exile your bridges from below. Kinda screws up your plan. But this is less of a drawback than you'd think -- wait until you go off, dump your deck, make all your Zombie tokens, then Darkblast their Dark Confidant or Peacekeeper or whatever.

Yah these are Kamigawa spirits, not Innistrad spirits.

I use this in my mono-black EDH deck based on death triggers and adore it. "Why would you put that card in a mono-color deck", the non-Johnnies ask me. Well, the sheer political utility of being able to give "allies" chump tokens is one thing, but being able to spit out a token at the guy I stuck Curse of Death's Hold on, or just with Ascendant Evincar out, to trigger all my "when something dies" effects is utterly hilarious. Style points if it's Toshiro Umezawa's, who is the commander of said deck, morbid-flashback effect and I use the trigger to kill something else. And to drink a little sip of life with Blood Artist, and pump up Black Market...

You get the idea.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
