Finally had a chance to play it in a deck built around it.

It's a fantastic card. A 5/6 flyer is a solid win condition, and since it only costs 3 mana that leaves the rest open for counterspells so he can remain the biggest thing on the board.

In my last game with him, he got dayed and had his throat torn out a few times, but with Jace's Archivist, Solemn Simulcrum, Derranged Assistant, and plenty of illusions (which, for once, I was pretty glad they died so easily), I ended up recasting him from the graveyard five times without much effort.

The funny thing was, even when I had a Ruinator out along with 3 other creatures and my opponent used Day of Judgement, I didn't really feel like I was set back that far because the next turn I simply recast the Ruinator using those three creatures.

I thought I might need to run more than 2 copies in the deck that focused on him, but one copy alone managed to do one hell of a job.... (see all)

Unique, straight-forward, and powerful fun. Whats not to love?

With an opening hand of this, 3 other creatures, and Lion's Eye Diamond, you can cast it your first turn. But of course, you can do anything with Lion's Eye Diamond.

Ghoulcaller's Bell works very well with this card.

I just notcied you can cast this from the graveyard. This is going to go so sweet with cards like @Molten-Tail Masticore , @Semblance Anvil , @Moorland Haunt and @Misthollow Griffin through in some counterspells ponders 2 mana extra turns maybe a @Surgical Extraction and with @Back from the Brink you've got a really sweet deck.

I just ordered 4 of these for $1.50 each! I can't wait to play with this guy. I am constructing a casual deck and here is what I have so far:

Skaab Ruinator x4
Kuldotha Phoenix x4
Reassembling Skeleton x4
Molten-Tail Masticore x2
Trinket Mage x4
Mox Opal x1
Myr Servitor x4
Sliversmith x4
Magus of the Bazaar x4
Bone Splinters x4

The strategy is to generate massive card advantage by just getting a bunch of stuff in your graveyard that can easily come out. That makes 16 creatures that can come out of the graveyard.

I have 15 cards (including the 4 Trinket Mage's) that fetch me artifacts to get Metalcraft for the Phoenix. I also have a way tutor up a second or third Myr Servitor.

I have 10 ways to discard stuff i... (see all)
