Helluva combo with birthing pod... and if you don't want to pay the extra cost again, just sun titan him back on the battlefield, better yet, sun titan your phantasmal image into a sun titan into a Ruinator. Although that could just be #morewinning

"Blue Vengevine zombie?"

It personally reminds me of Tombstalker But it's both better and worse, better in the fact it takes down the stalker and you can cast it from the grave while removing less things from your graveyard. Worse in the fact that you need 3x creatures in the grave, not just any cards such as your spent disruption and removal, along with the extra 1 to cast it. Nonetheless, seems like it could be ridiculous for standard, and to have some potential in Legacy.

@Lyoncet, as others have said, Birthing Pod means you don't have to run blue at all; you don't have to dredge at all; and you can be less creature heavy than you'd think. And I'd tip we see this guy in Pod long before any other successful build makes good use.

Pulled this little guy at the Pre-Release.
Funny, my wife went with me just to see what goes on at one so she didnt pay.
Sitting at the table in front of me, a DCI judge hands her 6 packs of cards....
Whats the win? I GOT THEM >:D

This was my only blue pull at prerelease, and my only mythic. Really, my only decent rare. I played mono blue self-milling, rode this guy to victory almost every game. Probably not so viable outside limited/pod decks, but your opponents sure are ***ed when you get him out.

Absolutely the most wonderful part of this card is casting from the graveyard. You don't have to regulate your milling!

I pulled one of these in a fat pack, and from what I've seen, the most powerful, simple counter to him is a simple Unsummon or something similar. If you can make him hexproof (which is not very difficult), watch your opponents despair.

I just pulled this from a booster pack. I was absolutely staggered by my luck, and I think my neighbours heard it too... Gee, I was hoping for a plainswalker, but I'm actually even happier with getting my Skaab!

It was supposed to be just another lazy Saturday, but I decided to go and check if the locall stall would be selling Magic cards again. I was already blasted by the fact that the booster box was finally there! I was going to pick the top boosters from each section, but then, my hand hesitated. I decided to make a gamble, and took my third booster from the mid-section instead. Looks like it was a decision I won't be regretting... When getting Angel of Flight Alabaster and Sulfur Falls just doesn't quite suffice /,,/

Time to make me a zombie deck, yay!
