Honestly not surprised that he's finally banned, but I still can't help to think that Wizards said "lets just abandon balancing and actually make this card".

"Alas, poor Jund! I knew him, Horatio; a fellow of infinite value, of most excellent efficiency; he hath borne Top 8's on his back a thousand times; and now, how banned in my imagination it is!"

Very versatile card. Altho the strength in the card is graveyard dependent, considering it's a one-drop it is rare that it is not going to be useful as it can target cards in any graveyard. Of all the cards in this set, this is the one that should be considered a "must-have" as it's value has steadily increased in leaps and bounds in the past months. Fortunately I acquired my three playsets very early on as I expect this to reach ~20 dollars by the end of January. It can be effective in too many decks not to reach 20 bones. A staple across all formats for years to come. Get yours now.(Bad*** artwork too)

Pretty bad rating for an instant 4-of in the dominant deck of Modern. Well, often dominant.

Anyway, if I do make my anti-Jund Junk ({G}{W}{B}) deck, this card will definitely be in it. It always does something, even if it never attacks. And then when they go to Lightning Bolt this card, I could play Harm's Way or something targeting their Shaman. Yeah, I should make that deck.

Y'know, I remember when a 1/2 with no drawbacks for 1 was a pretty big deal, even in green (the only color that had it). Now that's available to black, too, and with some useful extra abilities to boot?

"Alas poor yorick..."

This is a card that I severely underestimated. In all fairness, I don't really play modern so it was a little harder for me to understand how a card like this could be that powerful. I didn't notice that the damn thing DOES EVERYTHING. In EDH though, this is killer at just one copy. Definitely a lot better than it looks, and it looks pretty good to begin with. I suspect this will now be Legacy's problem, and by golly it is a problem. 4.5/5 by itself doing whatever in standard, 5/5 if you are playing against anything that cares about the graveyard.

@MostlyLost darn you, get off of my train of thought.

This guy is high! High on FETCHCRACK!
But seriously. Don't play him in a format without fetches.

I nickname him Captain Hamlet. He loves recycling while he ponders existence by examining skulls.

I have played him in a few tournies already. He is pretty good and I will keep using him. In my area though, many players play direct damage and in those cases he just gets pinged off asap. Even still I keep using 4 of him becuase of his low mana cost and that he basically forces an opponent to kill him, leaving opponents with less resources to remove the main threat of my deck.

I would suggest you do NOT make Deathrite the key to winning with your deck. And there is no need to. He has so many uses that as long as you are playing Green or Black he is worth it, if only to make the game predictable....I.E. if you play him you know what your opponent will be doing next...getting rid of him asap. So if bluehe good for drawing our a counter, red a bolt-ish card, black/white some crazy exile sorc/instant.

Don't sweat over using the fetch lands, if you don't want to in your deck. So many other ways to use him it isn't even funny.

I am not sure though is if the "undying" effect goes ... (see all)

By his colors he should be Golgari but since Golgaris are using your graveyard you can't give it all to him , he's a wolverine !
Wait he can us an opponent graveyard ... Ok i see you coming Dimir elf spy !
If you are using only black he still can do his best , pumping and hiting !
I'm gonna mill with him !
