Xathrid Necromancer
Creature - Human Wizard (R)

Whenever Xathrid Necromancer or another Human creature you control dies, put a 2/2 black Zombie creature token onto the battlefield tapped.

2/2 
This card seems like something they wanted to print in Innistrad but couldn't make room for.
This could be a card you would want in your Shadowborn Apostle deck.

Oh wow, this might do something.

Definitely. Drop this turn four with six apostles in play, sac the apostles, get a huge demon of your choice based onthe deck your facing, and put 6 2/2 zombies into play. Difficult to keep all of them alive until T4, but worth it.

Sam Black approves of this card.

And so do I.

Seriously! That's awesome to see. I bet this guy will see some play.

Very easy to see play.


At worst, a simple 2/2 that has a high chance of giving you a tapped 2/2.


At best, combos will roll around him constantly, and may even see a small time together with a certain priest.
Decks I run
Show
I currently run a deck for Standard, Modern, Commander and Legacy. For standard, I have a typical, horribly budget Rakdos Deck Wins. For Modern, I have a B/G/U/W Draw-go Reanimator featuring my favorite creature, Wurmcoil Engine. For Legacy, I'm trying too hard to break Pyromancer Ascension. I also run a Naya Zoo with all the oldies. For Commander/EDH, I'm running The Mimeoplasm. A little morals thing about me, I like winning through combos, but not infinitely. However quiet, I am a Christian, so feel free to tell me you are too, it's always a relief.

OK, I'm totally building a Shadowborn Apostle deck for standard now.
My novel, Mektar, Clash of Ideals, is now available for purchase! Just click this text. I have +30 bragging rights according to HairlessThoctar. Just saying.
Interesting that they're putting Human tribal into the core set. And here I thought that was going to be a one-off Innistrad thing.

Perhaps we'll be seeing some in Theros.
humans are everywhere but that has no baring on the environment -

Sweet black gets its own, voice of resurgence, except its a more controlable effect and the tokens it makes are only 2/2s.

Nowhere near the power level of Voice. My question is this, why not reprint the clerics of the onslaught block instead creating these new cards? B/W clerics was one of the first decks I played in a big tournament, the deck has some nostalgic value. Rotlung Reanimator, Dark Supplicant and Scion of Darkness are perfectly fine cards.

Oi, wizards, are you going to reprint Carrion Feeder, Shepherd of Rot and Undead Warchief too?
This could see some constructed play.  
Good card.  Replaces itself if it dies, and replaces other humans if they die first or at the same time.  Not too shabby.
This is approximately "****ing good".

This in a deck with Bridge From Below and something to sac things to for an effect?

Although...

This guy doesn't have the "non-token" clause. 
from the picture I would have guessed Skeletons (which would make a great tribal...), good card !

Probably because Rotlung Reanimator doesn't say "you control".

Also: there are zombie clerics out there, and it's kind of weird to see those being revived as zombies when they die.  This card has no such flavour disconnect. 

Cats land on their feet. Toast lands peanut butter side down. A cat with toast strapped to its back will hover above the ground in a state of quantum indecision.

This is pretty good. Ill have to see what i have to make a proper deck with it.



An Immortal Army deck.

Rotlung also doesn't say "comes into play tapped". So, wizards gave us a substandard reprint of a once great card. Yay...
a turn behind is just that

the created token's got summing sickness
so there's a slight defensive loss

enters play tapped is mostly flavor

They'd better reprint Pillar of Flame then! I sure as hell don't want to be stuffing my sideboard with the 3cmc version.

graveyard play is fun though

So, does this mean Human tribal will become a thing after Innistrad? Also, this has potential with Teysa, Orzhov Scion and Ghost Council of Orzhova. This should also see some play with Shadowborn Apostle and Liliana's Reaver.


Ooh that art.
