I once had a wierd fight. I had a 1 CMC themed deck, and I was color screwed, having only two Scrublands out but had no white cards in hand while my black cards are usually useless by themselves (I play all 5 colors). My opponent was mana screwed too, unable to play anything. I somehow got all 4 Quests for the Gravelord and played all of them. Then, I played two Death's Shadows and an Unearth on one of them (automaticly destroyed because they get -20/-20). I ended the game the next turn with 4 5/5 Zombies. Pretty wierd game, I never imagined playing a combo like that for this card.

From the picture it seems as though it should summon a zombie mutant instead of giant. I wish it did because Zombie Mutant is a much cooler creature type in my opinion but oh well. I still love this card, I use 4 in my archenemy deck.

In a multiplayer game, all you need to do is drop a Fleshbag Marauder to fully load this quest.

The coolest of all the quests, it's the name. Quest for a gravelord. Anyone who gets this quest off is officially a Gravelord. I don't even have one, but I still got to fire it off for the 5/5 thanks to Karn Liberated. This card won me the restarted game, and I also got a Massacre Wurm and a Contagion Clasp with Karn. My opponent traded the Wurm with a Vampire Nighthawk on my 4th turn, then I proliferate the last counter on and proceed to beat his face in the next three turns for game. I'm a better Gravelord, and I don't even play black. Deserves a 5 for being a fun card and actually useful at the same time.

love this thing. When playing black, 3 creatures make their way to the graveyard from the battlefield in rather short order. it's a slightly delayed 5/5 zombie for ONE.

Because black needs even more Day of Judgment insurance.

Hmmm, so which is the Gravelord? Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord? Splinterfright? The Ghoultree? Maybe the Havengul Runebinder? Choices, choices.....

Great card. 5/5 creature for B. Forces your opponent to be wary of how he kills your creatures or sacs his. Rewards you for sacrificing your creatures, which combos well in black. 4.5*
