    Moorland Haunt
    Kher Keep
    Gods' Eye, Gate to the Reikai
    Dunes of the Dead
    Gargoyle Castle
    Tomb of Urami
    Urza's Factory


    The only issue I see with Field of the Dead is that it enters tapped.
    You just gave more reason why that's a bad card. Literally every card you named there is better, and yet none are played.

    Hey dingdongs, stop arguing about nonsense and peep this cool card.



    Probably not legacy-playable, but super cool nonetheless.

    The storm trigger puts all the copies on the stack at once. So the leyline triggers go on the stack after all the copies are already there.

    How does this guy work with Reanimate? Does he enter the battlefield before you lose the life letting you draw 8 cards? If so - is that an interaction that may be worth anything or is it always better to just get Grizzy?

    It would see the life lost from reanimate, so yeah you would draw cards.

    Yes the interaction is definitely worth playing this guy as a 1 of in any decks that play 4 Reanimate + 4 Entomb. If you're planning to cast Reanimate and your life is at 15 or less (especially against aggressive or burn decks), or your opponent has a Baleful Strix on the board, this is a better option to tutor up with Entomb than Griselbrand is.

    Re: Core Set 2020 Spoilers

    this is for when you are too short in life for Griselbrand and you have Reaninate around

    Are we sure about that interaction?

    Having to pay mana to draw cards is going to be the hurdle for Vilis, Broker of Blood. If you have a reanimation spell that's not Reanimate, you're either going to have to pass the turn and hope he lives or delay going for it for a few turns, which is usually the wrong choice. Reanimator wants to go off immediately. I think Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur is a better choice than this if you want another Griselbrand-style monster.

    This guy also doesn't recoup the life you lose. I think if my opponent ever goes for this over a GBrand I'll probably be very happy

    There has to be a use for Vilis, it's absurd. He doesn't have lifelink like Griselbrand but he has an ability that says B, pay 2 life: kill target dork and draw 2 cards. The fact that you draw 8 cards after Reanimate is a very nice payoff. Griselbrand can be Needled/Revoker-ed, this guy still has a static ability that lets you draw cards. I don't think this is for BR reanimator but I think old school UB reanimator might want this as Griselbrand 5+. Drawing 8 cards with free counterspells in your deck seems pretty decent, especially considering you can now play 5+ with Force of Negation. I kinda want to jam this in a Death's Shadow/Reanimator hybrid.

    He also reads "Pay two life, hit myself if there is no other target, draw two." Having such a big ass I do not feel is accidental.
    It is better to ask and look stupid then keep your mouth shut and remain so.

    Apparently, Leyline of Abundance enables T2 kills.

    In Legacy, you could probably play Pemmin's Aura as back-up. Noble Hiearch would also enable the combo. Main problem would be being reliant on auras, though, thus it's pretty much a no-go.

    Best you can do is probably something like this? It's still reliant on getting the Leyline in play so . . . . yeah.

    4 Serum Powder
    4 Leyline of Abundance
    4 Pemmin's Aura
    4 Freed from the Real
    4 Force of Will
    4 Force of Negation
    4 Daze
    4 Misdirection
    4 Brainstorm

    4 Bird of Paradise
    4 Noble Hierarch

    16 Lands

    I think in modern I could've seen people trying it. Legacy it's probably just unplayable. Although you can play daze and Force in this theoretical deck I guess

    That's true as long as there's an island in the deck, irrespective of the deck.
