Debtors' Knell

Debtors' Knell managed to fly under the radar for a little while now. All of a sudden, players are starting to catch onto how good this card is. It fits in control decks. It works against control decks. And it uses guildmana to play it, so you can use it in a lot of different decks. This card should be a relatively hot card for a while to come.

Debtor's Knell - When I first saw this card, I knew it was something special. Repetitive reanimation enchantments are nothing new. Dawn of the Dead provided a similar effect during Odyssey block. To go back even farther, you can find Dreams of the Dead from Ice Age. How lame was that? Debtor's Knell is clearly the top of this list. It has the easiest mana requirements, despite the highest casting cost. And it has the most permanent effect. Plus, it's got what neither of those other enchantments had - a really big nasty angel to reanimate. Angel of Despair has become the best friend of Debtor's Knell at casual and block constructed tables across the world. Not to mention Loxodon Hierarch. I'm happy to see such a big crazy enchantment getting some play.

Debtor's Knell

EXPENSIVE!! But worth it, at least in limited. If you can get this on the board, things get real ugly, real fast. Unless your opponent can get rid of it, it should be game over. A bit too much mana for constructed, but if you can find a way to pull it off in Casual, go for it. Your friends will hate you, and eventually they will main deck enchantment removal against you, but you'll have some fun for a while.
