    In some ways better than rise from the grave…cause of combat tricks, but in other it is not since Rise from the Grave picks any graveyard.

    • Zombie

      This is better than Rise.

      You get to trigger the ETB effects of whatever two creatures you want from your battlefield and graveyard.

      Shadowborn Demon, Abhorrent Overlord, Obzedat, you name it.

      Rise from the grave is faster but like you said, Rescue from the underworld offers a mechanic for block/sac.

  • DeAnthony Grenesko

    I like this a lot. Instant speed reanimate, but not during combat, just at the end of turn. Also triggers an etb effect on another of your creatures. This could be fun with Act of Treason too, because it returns the sacrificed creature to your control, not the owners control. I know that’s a ton of mana for one turn, but you just never know.

  • Levi Warren

    Sure it’s really slow but so is the rest of the set. This could be a game winner in sealed.

    • Zombie

      Honestly, this could seriously be a game changer for Reanimator’s existence in Standard.

      Sacrifice Shadowborn Demon, Reanimate Shadowborn Demon, kill 2 creatures when they come into play.

      Next upkeep, kill two of your mana dorks, swing for 10.

    Saves your creature from removal/bad combat plus get another creature back. Works at the end of their turn for that beater in your gy so you can attack on your turn.
