Black control staple. 4/5 easily. You really don't even need to run graveyard hate for this to become a "draw three" over the course of the game, though if you do run hate, consider skipping Planar Void type shenanigans and just spam Relic of Progenitus. That way, if you don't draw into Gravestorm, you can use the Relic as a 2: bampf all graveyards, draw a card; it's a halfway-decent cantrip on its own. Also, a Bojuka Bog is a gravestormer's best friend. Sometimes the only graveyard interactions I run are four Gravestorm and four Bojuka Bog, and this is still a 'draw three over five or six turns' kind of card. Anyone designing a rogue Mono-Black Control deck should give this serious consideration.

Makes opponents squirm when they know you've got Patriarch's Bidding or Living Death in the deck. Lovely.

This card made me think it'd be really sweet to have an ensnaring bridge for the graveyard; something like:

"creatures with power more than the number of cards in your graveyard can't attack", probably in {B}{W}

As to the card, I quite like this; may work instead of arena with a Planar Void combo. Helps eat 'Goyf food potentially.

Love the name, art, mana cost, and great effect while being balanced.

Things get REALLY funny when you have more than one out.

Getting this one out first-turn with Dark Rit is brutal card advantage! o_O

Keep in mind that it's target opponent, not any opponent, so you can just keep choosing the guy with an empty graveyard or someone who's using 'yard shenanigans.

Plus, it was printed in Odyssey, which had tons of flashback, threshold, and the like. Exiling your opponent's graveyard probably would've been a decent outcome anyways then.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
