FNM July - Anathermancer


Woah! I do believe this is a strong card for black red and pretty much eats up control decks especially in formats where non-basic lands dominate. Although I think the original art is much cooler. I think a zombie wizard that carries the staff in a cool manner (look at the hand sign hehe) is something that's also good. Anyway, the card is strong as itself. With an unearth cost designed for late game, it is customized to deal a small damage the first time it comes to the board and large damage for being unearthed in late game.

I think this card is worth collecting. Friday night Magic (FNM) foil for july is Anathemancer from Alara Reborn Block.


Creature - Zombie Wizard 2/2, 1BR (3)

When Anathemancer enters the battlefield, it deals damage to target player equal to the number of nonbasic lands that player controls.

Unearth {5}{B}{R} ({5}{B}{R}: Return this card from your graveyard to the battlefield. It gains haste. Exile it at the beginning of the next end step or if it would leave the battlefield. Unearth only as a sorcery.)

Illus. Richard Whitters
