Am i the only one who saw this and checked just to make shure this wasnt baned? runnig 4 of these in gravecaller deck gives you a ton of life and your almost garentied to drop at least one in the grave yard. the only times i have lost when ive goten to use this late game are the times i end up milling my self to deat well i guess thats what Laboratory Maniac is for

A friend of mine plays a U/G self mill deck and this card is just dumb. It gives him so much time to mill and build. Three mana for 26 life with a three mana flashback is just insane.

Does using this card consume the creatures in your Graveyard? I have played this deck a few times, seems very unfair to gain life from Graveyard creatures, then boost another creature using the same Graveyard creatures.

I love it when a card you underestimate turns out to be surprisingly powerful.

i had an opponent drop 4 of these with 4 flashbacks on me against one of my battlefield control decks. He gained around 100+ life, but still ended up losing because after all, it's still just life gain. Without deck tactics to back it up, all gaining life does is delay the inevitable. Besides that, this is a very good card, with an excellent life gain to mana ratio potential.

The incentive to run this is it doesn't cost you a card if you mill it. Innistrad-era self mill combined with Odyssey-era threshold/flashback and Ravnica-era Golgari Dredge is quite potent. This is essentially bonus lifegain while you carefully (or otherwise) stock that graveyard. Basically, any deck that runs Svogthos is more than likely capable of running this as a 1-3-of without worries.

I'm surprised this card is rated so low. Love it. :)

Minty fresh life gain.

Okay, having 9 creatures in your graveyard gives you 18 life. Activating flashback immediately gives you another 18. IF you haven't taken any damage, you're already at 56 life! Great for an archenemy or a regular game

So awesome when you have milled this and your opponent doesnt know and they think they're gonna win :)
