Cinderbones
 
As a Drudge Skeletons variant, Cinderbones is one of the more intriguing (and flavorful) ones. Unfortunately, its setting rather works against it: the prevalence of other creatures with wither in Shadowmoor limited makes its regeneration ability less relevant, while as a 1/1 it won't make a huge impact in combat, even taking its own wither ability into account. Still, it's a nice filler card in draft or sealed, and will make your opponent think twice about attacking with a large non-wither creature like Valleymaker or even Deus of Calamity. It also works well with Kulrath Knight.

3 mana for a 1/1? It better have a great ability. Wither, ok... Boggart Ram-Gang has a 3/3 body to go with it. Over-costed generation? No good.

Cinderbones - Monday

This guy is not so hot.  He's another type of regenerating skeleton type card that seems to keep getting reprinted.  Unless you are desperately looking for something to fill out your Wither deck, I can't imagine you'd want to play this card.  It's an overcosted 1/1.  And it cost more than one to Regenerate.

Constructed: 1.5
Casual: 1.5
Limited: 1.5
