Todays other GTC card to rate is...
5.0: First pick no matter what. I will always play this card.
4.5: Splashable and first pick worthy.
4.0: First pick pack 1.
3.5: Early pick though not always a first pick.
3.0: Solid early/mid pick.
2.5: Solid pick in color.
2.0: Should generally make the deck if in this color.
1.5: Decent filler.
1.0: 23rd card if you have to.
0.5: This card will sometimes be sideboarded in.
0.0: I will never put this card into my deck (main deck or after sideboarding).
This card looks good. However it's not. You need a dead dude which should be doable but not early enough and late game it won't really matter generally.
You can remove an opponent's dead guy too. And the 1/1 has flying so that's better. I would say 1.5 Sideboard card against a deck that likes to pull the same creatures out of graveyards.
1 for this as well, I wouldn't really want this outside of sideboard material, but I could see it making the maindeck if I was short on playables.
Eh, in Orzhov it gives you flying chump blocker in the mid-game that is easy to extort to high-heaven.
In anything else... eh. Gives you a cheap Cipher target in Dimir, and nothing useful in Boros.
It's about a 1 for me. It's not particularly bad in Orzhov, where cheap removal often means having cards in the GY early enough for it to matter, and the cheap cost helps with extort. A little worse in Dimir, but not completely useless. Still, I'd rather have most any other in-color 1-drop over this.
this is a "I need some cheap spells to extort off of" card
I'd rather have a one drop with extort, honestly. It'd be one of the last picks in a pack for me.
It might be sideboard-able in standard constructed against graveyard recursion, but Cremate would be preferable.
Actually I wouldn't be upset to have one of these in my Orzhov deck.
Remember, this is an instant, and requires only any one card in any player's graveyard: it's not going to be a 1/1 flyer on turn 1, but at the same time it's not entirely unlikely to be usable by turn 2-3 thanks to early removal like Mugging .
It's not great (it will be a good bit better in DGM when it's in the same format as Scavange to hate on), but it's not utterly uinusable. 1.0 by Greven's Metrics, 1.5 by UA
If only this card were as good as its flavor text...
