Is counting mana symbols in graveyards more
annoying than trying to count card types for
Tarmogoyf? At least the thing Umbra Stalker
cares about is directly visible when you play
with your graveyard spread out "Odyssey style,"
and you won't get messed up because your
opponent thinks his Sunlance is an instant even
though he played it correctly a few turns ago.
Bridge from Below has a new friend with this guy
(like it needed more friends!), and it is also
not bad in limited decks with a lot of black -
hybrid mana symbols count too, remember?

7 mana and what you'll get is something that
either gets chump blocked all day or killed by
Unmake, Oblivion Ring, Crib Swap, countered and
so on. You can give it fear with Profane Command
but Phage the Untouchable would be a much better
target, even though Phage is completely
unplayable. That just shows you how bad this
card is. The bottom line is that is costs way
In limited, you have to be playing a lot of
black for this to do anything, and it's still 7
mana which means no good.
This is a very expensive
Elemental for Standard or Block. Of course Block
does not really matter that much sense the PTQ
season is over.
Fun Black decks should have this card in it.
Not a very good card. Would not pick it very
high because of it's high casting cost. Unless I
was going heavy black, and I open it first pack.
Oh yeah it can be really big with the right
cards in the graveyard, but is has no evasive
Overall one of the fun Rares to play with.
Well, if the last Lhurgoyf is
any indication, this should have a good deal of
potential.Of course, that one cost a mere two mana
to this one's seven.And the heavy black requirement makes me
think that they want you to forget that the
Chroma on this card actually counts your
graveyard, not in play.Of course, you're already supposed to
have a lot of black mana symbols in your deck if
you're playing this, so the color requirement is
no big deal.If only it had trample or flying or
something, it'd be an awesome finisher.
