Top 10 Cards I am Going to Miss Post Rotation: #2 Immortal Servitude!

Suprise! Immortal Servitude was not my #1 card I will miss post rotation!?!

Probably the main reason that Immortal Servitude didn’t top off the list was that I still have a reasonable replacement for the card in Return to the Ranks. Both cards are similar enough, yet each has an advantage over the other. Immortal Servitude allows you to return ALL converted mana cost creatures from the graveyard to the battlefield, but really forces you into either a 1 CMC or 2 CMC strategy where filling up the graveyard is a must. Return to the Ranks rewards aggro decks that also want a way to recover from board wipes or early 1 for 1 removal and also allows you to have a nice curve of 1 CMC and 2 CMC creatures.

Anyhoo, rather than go back to my older strategies of using Tymaret, the Murder King and Purphoros, God of the Forge, I decided to have some fun with Phenax, God of Deception and Doorkeeper.
