    When ~ enters the battlefield, destroy up to two target permanents. Gain life equal to the total converted mana cost of permanents destroyed this way.
    6/7
    I don't think it should be able to target itself.

    It's quite powerful and works well with most all the cube cheat effects besides Channel and Tinker.

    Hellspark is consistently good in my list, though doesn't play in a few deck types. I enjoy the interactions with equipment, has been nuts with swords and Skullclamp. I could see cutting it but not for any of the current red two drops.

    Red's two drops don't compete with Dark Confidant, Stoneforge Mystic, Snapcaster Mage, or Goyf. Young Pyromancer is a great start.

    Like Miracles, when you are playing this card, you have to play slightly differently. For that I understand why some would shy away from including Corpse Dance.

    Beyond that, this card is quite powerful and is waiting to be abused. Creatures have gotten much better in recent times so the value of Corpse Dance has risen significantly. I haven't hit with an Eldrazi yet, but I have used Kalonian Hydra, Wurmcoil, Elf + Skullclamp, and my favorite - Gilded Drake. I've also gotten to use it twice a turn a few times. It's a very grindy card that can become busted. It's been in 3 drafts so far, dominating 2 of them and being side boarded in the other draft, so it's still really early.

    I'm excited to play it alongside the Magic Orgins DFC legendary/walkers.

    Any creatures in the yard are better than the dorky, vanilla zombies you'll make. I'm sure this card can be decent but I compare it to something like Moorland Haunt that isn't a land.

    I suggest Whip of Erebos, Corpse Dance, or Living Death instead of this card. OP, note that Living Death and Whip are modern frames.

    Obviously removing the restriction from the card would substantially increase its power level, but I'm still quite happy with how it has played out. Copse Dance requires support, more than the other reanimation spells, but it can be more powerful than Animate Dead and leads to very interesting game states. I'd suggest playing it with Elrdazi, mega fatties, and delve is cute.

    If your black section has some extra room I'd try it out.

    My experience is that it has been better than Living Death on average, and occasionally better than Animate Dead. Luckily haven't had to use it defensively but it can be used to make blockers too.

    I've been trying out Corpse Dance for a while and has show a lot of success. Does anyone have any experience with Corpse Dance?

    -Graveyard order does matter with the new rules alongside Corpse Dance if you are curious.
    -If the creature dies then it doesn't get exiled
    -Works with Eldrazi
    -Instant speed so you could use on blocks, or at your opponent's end turn.

    Absolutely. If all five are cubeable, which is very possible (since pushing Magic Origins is very expected), then black will gain a good amount of power by being able to use reanimate spells on walkers.

    LucidVision, that has been my experience so far. I haven't had a problem flipping her, but sometimes I'd rather gain life.

    This is far and away better than any command I thought they would print in DTK, instant include.

    Cowards are really good if they cost 1 mana for some reason, see Goblin Guide's original art.

    I'm glad they're really printing great 1 drops every set.

    Her planeswalker minus is also really good with a lot of these creatures

    Doesn't transform from wraths.

    It triggers with an evoked Shriekmaw too. Or just letting an Avalanche Riders die or something. Sweet.
    Vampire Hexmage, Carrion Feeder, Bone Shredder, this list will only get longer. I'm going to be first picking her a lot...

    It's not that terrible if you don't, plus black creatures never stay in the graveyard very long in my cube.


    Holy crap, i only just realised that this is a reanimate-able PW. Such a slam dunk O.o
    Small enough to get back with Sun Titan, cheap enough for Stronghold and Genesis. Reanimates with Lark and Alesha. It's an engine card.

    An abuseable planeswalker? Slam dunk for any cube. This card is an engine, build around with lots of power.
