@ hokeymon at the time of this cards printing, it was not a global effect. WHY wizards decided to change it beats me. you can tell it was not meant as a global effect with the phrase "Your graveyard" on the card which refers to the owner of said card. if they wanted it to be a global effect back then they would not have added that phrase.

WIZARDS, why don't you get off your collective dumb behinds and change this back to how it is suppose to be? to all those that cant tell what the card is saying with out it printed in dumbed down retardo language.... smack yourself really really hard. I could tell exactly what this card did at the time it was printed... and I was 11!! if you adults now a days (not even born then) cannot tell what it does because its "confusing" then you need to go back to school and learn how to read.

Also, can someone tell me WHY they did change the wording so much that the card is now global? they even added an errata to remove the key single owner phras... (see all)

This card has always confused me and it still does. It says: Whenever a creature is put into a graveyard from play. A creature sounds like any player's creature and A graveyard sounds to me like any player's graveyard. And then is says: return that creature from your graveyard to play. That sounds to me like it only effects creatures in my graveyard and not in my opponent's.
So, do every player's creatures come back from the dead, or just mine?

This seems potent with:
KEYWORDS (to abuse): Champion, Evoke, Persist, Undying, (none such creatures are listed below)
1-CMC: Tukatongue Thallid/Doomed Traveler, Norin the Wary who always comes back just in the nick of time;
2-CMC: Wheel of Sun and Moon for one-sidedness, Phantasmal Sphere but it's just sooo bad without Tainted Aether/Grave Pact, Man-Sized Caterpillar to sacrifice in response to Wrath of God and pals, Myr Sire, Brindle Shoat, Reassembling Skeleton, Mogg War Marshal, Dripping-Tongue Zubera and other Zuberas for hilarity;
3-CMC: Haunted Angel insofar as it is possible for a slightly better Phantasmal Sphere... (see all)

I play this in my deck that's full of creatures with undying and persist.


Because fuck you that's why.

I remembered this card when I was 14 and was just starting magic. My older brothers friends where d1cks. They said the effect only affected creatures of lifelines controller and my brother uses a speedy elf deck. They could have lost like 10 times if they didn't cheated on the rules.

Play this with Leyline of the Void so your opponents don't benefit.

"The card clearly states "into graveyard", but the details say "into graveyard from battlefield", yet there is no offical rulings stating that it has to be from the battlefield, so, which is it?"

"The Oracle text under the Details section is official." <--True.

Also, even if it didn't specify "from the battlefield," it would work the same, because it says "creature," not "creature card." A card can only be a "creature" when it is on the battlefield; in any other zone, it's called a "creature card."

This was obviously printed with Echo creatures in mind, but this card is seriously broken. Just to name a few options in-block:

- Yavimaya Granger for repeated lands.
- Multani's Acolyte for repeated cards.
- Yavimaya Elder for repeated lands and possibly cards.
- Bone Shredder for repeated Terror.

That does not even begin to scratch the surface, and those are examples just from the block. Note that all of these can also be targeted by Unearth, also from the Urza block. A little playtesting goes a long way...
