Awesome in a Scarecrow deck.Useless anywhere else.Well, not completely-- it can bring back
Myr Retrievers and Razormane Masticores and the
like.And it's not legendary, so you could work
two off each other.But still, you probably just want it in a
It took me two or so passes of this card's rules
text to fully register that while its first
ability is tribe-specific, its second ability
isn't. Creatures like Heap Doll, Elf Replica,
and Triskelion are already strong, and when they
can't truly die, things get very silly very
fast. Scarecrone is strong in limited play; many
of the Shadowmoor block's scarecrows are
playable without it, much less if you can draw a
card whenever they die and then bring them back
to overwhelm your opponent's defense.

The fact that Alara has a shard with a ton of
artifacts should boost up this card's a bit.
Right now though, there's just not enough good
artifacts for this to be good. Grim Poppet and
maybe Triskelavus is all it has which means this
card's playability suffers a lot as it's just an
In casual this is pretty cool because you get to
reanimate stuff and getting a Scarecrone drawing
loop is ok.
Constructed: Very nice card. I would
use it for any deck because it is colorless.
Play it with one mana open and even if they
tried to kill it, you can just sac it to draw a
card, unless it is split second. To bad there
was not more playable Scarecrows.
Casual: If you do not have a
Scarecrow deck I recommend making one. This will
fit in perfect.
Limited: This would be great to
open up in a Sealed deck pool. Just hope to get
alot of playable Scarecrows. Draft if it was the
first pack I would draft a deck around it.
Overall a good card. The second ability is a little
expensive, but to put into play any artifact
creature card from your graveyard is awesome.
Good thing Darksteel Colossus never goes to the
graveyard, and Mindslaver is NOT a creature.
