So many useful effects to combine this with. I think this is a powerful addition to black.

EDIT: Like we need another awesome idea to work with this guy? Trying Blasting Station. Basically says: {1}{B} deal one damage to target creature or player. That is a power usually reserved for dragons like Shivan Hellkite, a CMC 7 creature.

It's amazing that this thing is a 1/1. Because of it, you can combine it with Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker, and Bloodthrone Vampire. Sac it to the vamp as many times as you can, then when you run out of mana, just wait until the end of your turn. You get your creature back, untapped.

Plus, as has been said, in general it is good sacrifice fodder. BTW, Grave Pact and Blade of the Bloodchief/Sadistic Glee love this card.

Initially, I rated this a 4/5. Then I changed it to 5/5. This card has so many uses that you don't even realize it at first. I use it in my sacrifice deck; I really love this with innocent blood. I also agree with dberry02 that this is what a "real skeleton" should be like. It gives new meaning to the word "graveyard" vs. being "exiled". It's also just plain fun to play. This is just an awesome card.

I like the idea of using this in EDH to fuel Skullclamp in a pinch. Reoccuring draw is always ideal, and this would offer just another way to use it. Especially if you have River Kelpie on the board with it. Gotta maximize that draw!

Man, I love this card. Repeatable (in a turn) sacrifice target. I think so.

A solid card that fills a gap in black magic. Very flavorful, since the dead just keep on coming back.

@TomYoung: I've been using it with Attrition since I pulled one. And Mind Slash. And Contamination. My sac deck sees alot of scoops.
