Rally the Ancestors

The absolute price ceiling on this card has to be lower than the price ceiling on Immortal Servitude, right? This card is worse than that. Immortal Servitude enjoyed a brief foray into the spotlight, and casting this at X=2 is cheaper than it was with Servitude. Are there enough CIP triggers to justify playing with a card that doesn't let you attack with the creatures and only leaves them around for less than a turn cycle? This is likely bulk unless someone breaks it. It's breakable, but it's also mostly worse than similar cards whose price histories are known to us.

One thought on “Rally the Ancestors

  1. There are more then CIP triggers this card can work well with.
    – You can use sacrifice abilities (the creatures go back to the graveyard)
    – If you have mass haste enabler (e.g. hammer of purphoros) this can be a total bust on your turn for an aggro deck
    – It could also be used for sideboard aggro deck on mirror match. Say two RW aggro decks meet, this can easily be a 1-side-wipe for 3-4 mana at instant speed (blockers)
    – You also have possible “relevant leave the battlefield” triggers such as Dragons mode on Outpost Siege

    However, I don’t think this card will be worth anything that it would be worth to farm it at all. There is a tiny small chance that it will be broken but it requires so many factors that it’s not worth to think about it. If it would ever do something it would be in Standard… and that doesn’t seem to happen anytime soon (let’s see with Origins).

    The fact that it has WW, the fact that exiles creatures… and the last relevant minus… it also exiles itself so no Eternal-Witness-like shenanigans, make it a “meh” this could have been pretty… but ain’t.
