"the combos are nice, but I feel some of them are quite a bit contrived."
@DarthParallax - Yes! Maybe this pure Johnny talking, but that's what makes this card truly awesome. Weird and improbable combos are just as plentiful as powerful and predictable ones with this card.

My favorite moment with this card so far was reanimating Sepulchral Primordial in a 4 player game, reanimating the 3 biggest fatties in their graveyards, sacrificing everything (milling for about 8 each), then doing it all over again and again with an Animate Dead and Grim Return and Gruesome Encore.
