In Tempest tournaments, this was sided in to try and deal with Survival/Nightmare decks. Unfortunatey, I believe it was too slow to hose said decks, and was easily removed by a tutored-out Cloudchaser Eagle. Still, reusable graveyard hate had to start somewhere!

Bad card, and the artwork does not belong on a mtg card, let alone anywhere near the word Phyrexian.

Seriously, unless Phyrexia is little more than a poorly funded Broadway musical, this cards art makes no sense.

I think it's a cool concept, emptying out the oldest dead bodies that are useless for reanimating because they're so decomposed. However, it is a pretty bad card and has terrible artwork (unless you're trying to win an avant-guarde art show)

I do really enjoy abstract art on Magic cards, and I really want to see more of it in modern sets.

But in the case of this card, the abstract art looks like it'd have much more to do with a Jazz concert than a detritus-burning and memory-incinerating diabolic machination created by an evil race of zealous life-eviscerators.

I do appreciate that that the card ruling does not include the disclaimer about preserving graveyard order.

Rather weak, though graveyard hosers have improved with time.

Surreal artwork that has nothing really to do with the card name. Should be played with Statis since its artwork also has nothing to do with the card name.

This card is potentially very useful, and I like the flavor of it burning the graveyard from the bottom up, but having a card that cares about other players' graveyard order is very annoying in EDH. I'd like to run it! It's just too inconvenient to get everyone to remember to maintain their graveyard order when they are so used to it not making a difference.

Stuff like Moldgraf Monstrosity are messed with by the Furance, but mostly people are used to being able to "shuffle" their graveyard to pick creatures at random, which is entirely too troublesome when you have to be able to put them back in the right order. Sure, you can work out something with dice or whatever else, but it is still too bothersome to use when you could run Scrabbling Claws instead.
