Probably my favorite card in the set but then I saw Grafdigger's Cage. You know what though. It's only 4 cards in a deck so who cares. Get this out as fast as you can. You have a clock ticking :)

as the rules state: card text overrules the rules::::::::
rule one: you can only cast creatures anytime you could cast a sorcery.:::::::::
card rule: you may cast target creature in a graveyard "this turn".(there is no "if able" clause):::::::::
I pay {1} on your turn and a creature in a graveyard gains flash::::::::::::
ARE YOU KIDDY ME!!!!! please let me know if i am wrong

One of the most creative and deck-inspiring creatures ever printed.

This + Heartless Summoning + Priest of Urabrask / Priest of Gix = infinite mana.
This + Heartless + Black Cat = you can force a random discard for 1B at sorcery speed- as much as you can afford.

Also try reanimating a Beguiler of Wills- Lich will inherit her incredible ability without her 1/1 body.

This is truly one of the most amazing combo pieces ever printed,
unfortunately screwed over by the fact they also printed the strongest hoser ever,
Grafdigger's Cage, in the same set.

Gee, thanks, Wizards- way to give us an awesome new toy and ruin it at the same time.
Still, I hope this Lich sees the deck-building love it deserves.

I already love Karador, Ghost Chieftain so it is hard for me to not love this. An insane card in EDH (my Sedris, the Traitor King deck just found a new best friend).

Great Johnny cards thanks to all the sweet interactions he has.

Also, relevant in standard thanks to Heartless Summoning.

This card does it all.

As long as Grafdigger's Cage doesn't ruin the fun, this is an amazing and powerful card. The only one I need to finish my Thraximundar EDH. Combined with a sac engine, this will allow for some fun interactions.

This card is a boss. For one, if you run four, they can practically never die. Just keep recasting from your graveyard. The only thing that can stop his ability is Grafdigger's Cage, but even then, sideboard a few artifact destroy spells. Next, the creature can be cast from 'A' graveyard. Not just yours. This means you have access to all creatures. And, you can cast the creature spell as many times as you want. Over. And over. And over. This card will win you the game.

This card is truely what a mythic should be. I can see this card getting the ban hammer one day, because it's to over powered. 5/5, and it's so cheap to cast for it's ability.

Oh, more, more fun for my Necrotic Ooze and Myr Propagator. And here, I thought he was a legendary at first glance. Just wait until Kraj joins the party, and then we'll have tons of fun! I just hate that he doesn't get the abilities until you cast the creature.

Now this guy combos with all "when x comes into play" and "when x dies". I find the best enabler with him is Heartless summoning; it helps getting him out earlier and makes for really nasty combos with perilous myr and Solemn Simulacrum, works fairly well with Spellskite for its activated ability for added possibility.

Personally i have him in a BGU deck with some Birthing pods, the above mentioned cards and Myr superion, Snapcaster mage, Accidic slime and one of each Titans to pod into for each situation i might encounter.

In a casual blue/black zombie with rooftop storm means all your zombies are not only free but they also are Gravecrawlers :)

Gets a solid 5 in my book.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
