I really want to like this card. However, I don't know what to do with it. You have to get it into the graveyard before you can do anything with it. So, that's a bit awkward to begin with. However, once it's there, you can keep playing it and some other guys, so it could turnout to be a good sideboard card against a few different decks.

This is a totally neat card. I don't know that it's a very powerful card, but it's certainly neat. It's basically useless in Coldsnap drafting, where there's no way to get it out of your hand besides discarding because of having a full hand or getting hit with a discard spell. But that's okay, this is a constructed card all the way. It's also just what Knight Tribal wants - a lord that does something fun.

Wow, what an interesting card. Obviously, if you can get a quantity of your deck into your grave somehow, or better yet, if you can chose specific cards to put there, this could be a lot of fun, especially in casual. I'm sure some crazy person will break this card.
