There are laws against it, but the dead have no one to complain to and the living are too frightened to investigate.

You shall not pass.
It's a corpse riot!

The concept really cracks me up. XD Protesting zombies hee.

Its okay i guess, though i dont get the flavor for the Deathtouch on this one.
A free outlet to sacrifice creatures isn't that common, i believe, so this is a nice start right there...remember this card if a combo deck requires free sacrifice.

other than that, can trade with anything first strike up to 3 power, which should be powerful
=O

3 creature sac outlet that works with heartless summoning to make it 1B mana!?! 

Heartless Lich loves it with all it's... umm, heart. 
I don't know why so many cards have you sacrifice creatures. Nothing in gatecrash synergizes with them. I think they're either plants, or left over from a mechanic they didn't keep but they kept the cards anyway because they liked them. Now we're stuck with them.

They are from a leftover Orzhov mechanic.  It original guild mechanic was a death trigger, but that got replaced by Extort.

@mikemearls The office is basically empty this week, which opens up all sorts of possibilities for low shenanigans

@mikemearls In essence, all those arguments I lost are being unlost. Won, if you will. We're doing it MY way, baby.

@biotech66 aren't you the boss anyway? isn't "DO IT OR I FIRE YOU!" still an option?

@mikemearls I think Perkins would throat punch me if I ever tried that. And I'd give him a glowing quarterly review for it.

Maro covered this in his article today, the original Orzhov mechanic involved death triggers so the sac outlets are left over from then.
Morbid enabler... oh wait, wrong set.

Would rather have a giant scorpion

I don't see why they decided that we'd want leftovers from a mechanic that no longer exists. I was looking at the cards from a sealed orshov point of iew, and none of them are desirable.
This card is so awesome lol.
Sac Gravecrawler to it to prevent them from swinging, and recast Gravecrawler the next turn with Extort enablers being out... maybe that enchantment.  Very nice.
standard will find this useful as will combo/control
Another in-tribe Sac outlet for the Rooftop Storm deck.

More love for Terry Pratchett.

A 1/4 wall for three is bad.
