"Your life serves a higher purpose now:
ensuring the continuation of my own"

Seems like a solid limited bear.
my first ICD, wanna help out, looking for ones I dont see up already.
hope it looks right.
Falkenrath Aristocrat this definitely is not. XD

OK in limited, I guess.

I like Orzhov's guild tablet, although it strikes me as odd that they would put Gruul in a higher tier than Selesnya. 
It occurred to me tonight that one good point about Haunt in Ravnica was that it built on itself well. You could haunt a creature that itself had haunt, then when that creature died you got to reuse the haunting card's effect and haunt another creature, all while generating tokens with Teysa, Orzhov Scion and exiling opposing creatures. The Aristocrat here makes a great addition to Haunt sac decks as Ghost Council of Orzhova did.

I don't see Simic on that tablet.
Interesting. 
So, the flavor behind aristocrats is that they sacrifice other creatures for their own gain.  Good to know.
bear with upside is good.
2 Mana Sac-outlet. Seems legit. I like the reaching ideas of Aristocrats being a thing- and here I thought Falkenrath was just tipping the hat to Vampire Aristocrat

I wonder why...

It's not like it makes any inherent sense - a 1-2-3-4 triangle would give you the ten guilds.
Apparently Maro has been flooded with questions about the lack of Simic and he doesn't know why they aren't on there, possibly just an artist oversight?

Maybe there's something in the lore about the Simic become an unknown entity after the death of Momir Vig?  Perhaps it's assumed that they are now just doctors as they were before Momir? I don't care much for trailers involving a TCG, but Lazav hints that the Simic are up to something that he might consider useful.

Seems good with Cipher, but kind of wrong colors... Are there any good equipments in standard atm? Anything that can repeatedly give itself pro at instant speed is kewl with equip/enchants.

Magic Rafiq Control Deck [EDH][1vs1][multiplayer] [] Inferno Beatdown [EDH][multiplayer][1vs1][] Gwendlyn Combo/Control Deck [EDH][1vs1][] Merieke Casual Deck [EDH][multiplayer][] Roleplaying Magician class [D&D 3.5]

Honestly amazed that protection hasn't been scrapped yet.

I was under the impression that, before the sudden appearance of Prime Speaker Zegana and the Zonots of New Simic, the Simic guild all but disbanded after Momir Vig and the dissolution of the Guildpact. 

So this tablet was likely made in that time and the Orzhov, at least, did not care to include the more or less dead guild.
Came for the flavor, stayed for the game. (10/4/2013: Discovered that I suppose I most closely resemble a Vorthos player, right after my odd obsession with making hyper-budget but effective decks and right before being a Johnny)
Not bad I guess.

fun with midnight recovery.  which reminds of one of the reasons cipher is better than just using an aura: it doesn't get sluffed when the creature gets pro: color.
Its okay.
Seems alright.
I don't see myself often killing a creature to save a 2/2.
very bad. me no likey.
I am Blue/Black
I love this card.  Might turn my zombie deck into now.  Doesn't play well with auras, but oh well
Nice sac outlet for 2 mana.
