This card is amazing. Flavor wise it's the freaking Necronomicon! I love H. P. Lovecraft so I love this card's flavor. This is golden in a graveyard based commander deck, like say my Mimeoplasm one. Otherwise not amazing but certainly not bad either.

excellent card. pair with life's finale for some real shenanigans! I tend to use it even if I don't have anything good in my yard. Just as good early game as it is late game. 5/5

Made an Izzet deck with this bad boy and am using lots of sifting cards to zip through the deck and of course Flayer of the Hatebound had to come along for the ride. Izzet is a natural fit for this card, although pumping it up to Grixis by adding a splash of black is a real blast too.

It's pretty good for madness if your aggro is stalled somehow. This was a win con for a Mill-All style deck a friend of mine ran, but we kept stealing them off him and exiling our graveyards. So yeah, don't rely on it, but it's a tidy little time bomb to distract people with.

Seems like his would combo surprisingly well with Tibalt. Wonder why no one else thought of that.

This, phyrexian plaguelord and blood artist.
Ruthlessly sacrifice everything to kill your opponents creatures then get it all back, making them lose life at the same time.

its not competitive I think, to slow and cheap removal shuts it down. But it is a very powerful effect, and teaches newer players the importance of artifact removal.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
