Part 4/5:

Part 1: Dune-Brood Nephilim
Part 2: Ink-Treader Nephilim
Part 3: Glint-Eye Nephilim
Part 5: Witch-Maw Nephilim

This is one of the more disappointing Nephilim Designs, because it's very difficult to see any {U} in it, OR any Esper, or any Grixis. It does make decent Numot and Oros sense, and Nephilim color identities are VERY tricky to get right without stepping on each other. I think if it gave Flying instead of pseudo-Haste it would certainly feel Blue-er, but that is probably too much. Maybe making it a Spirit-type when it comes back? Word space getting iffy?

What I like about Dune-Brood's mechanic is that it's the most Earthy-colored, it makes Sand Tokens so it's funny to pair with Hazezon Tamar, and the Sand Tokens actually don't feel out of place on a half-Jund, half-Naya beast at all. It wants to crush you, and without an... (see all)

Ghostly Possession would be a fairly ideal way of keeping this beastie from harm in combat. Alternatively, just use the Eventide/Shadowmoor hybrid auras to make him a combat monster.

I really like this one.

"Into play tapped and attacking": Feels a tiny bit like red (pseudo haste) and definitely like white, if you think about cards like Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Hero of Bladehold or Geist of Saint Traft.
Similarities with Kaalia of the Vast and the Ninjustsu mechanic inclusive. It's mostly a white thing, but I does appear in other colors (even green) too.

"From your graveyard": Reanimator things are mostly blacks ground, but white is also somewhat known for reanimation effects like Defy Death or Karmic Guide.
Also, don't forget the Unearth mechanic from Alara, which also interacts in a similar fashion to this card AND uses three of this Nephilims colors.

Nobody's mentioned the best application of this card: it can make you attack with things that have Defender.
