Black Gets Graveyard Hating Mythic Rare Zombie In Cemetery Desecrator In Innistrad: Crimson Vow

Innistrad: Crimson Vow delivers another solid answer to creatures, planeswalkers, and more

When Cemetery Desecrator enters the battlefield or dies, exile another card from a graveyard. When you do, choose one —

– Remove X counters from target permanent, where X is the mana value of the exiled card.

– Target creature an opponent controls gets -X/-X until the end of turn, where X is the mana value of the exiled card.

Cemetery Desecrator has a lot going for it. A six-mana 4/4, it comes equipped with menace, plus a sweet ability that triggers both when it enters the battlefield and when it dies. When the ability triggers and you exile a card from a graveyard, you’ll have the choice between removing counters from a target permanent, which answers planeswalkers nicely and can even reset your own Sagas, or you can remove an opponent’s creature by giving it -X/-X.

So what do you think of Cemetery Desecrator? Will the flexibility this card offers make it a star in Innistrad: Crimson Vow Standard? Let us know what you think in the comments.
