Gurmag Angler
I was a little surprised that we didn't end up seeing Tombstalker anywhere in the Tarkir block. I know we got a different demon with delve, but Future Sight deserves more attention! In all seriousness, though, the upside of Tombstalker's absence meant that people with roguish Dark Deal decks and the like turned to Gurmag Angler, and there are few things cooler than beating someone upside the head with a giant zombie fish. In addition to making a solid substitute for Tombstalker, the Angler also depletes graveyard things that a lot of decks like to turn against you nowadays - if it looks like they were getting ready to use something like Beacon of Unrest, countering it pre-emptively by casting a 5/5 creature is a pretty solid play.
