Scrapheap Scrounger
 
Scrapheap Scrounger is the latest in a long line of creatures that resurrect themselves, stretching all the way back to Nether Shadow, and the prospect of cheating your opponent's kill spells has always been worth a second look. (Especially since, unlike its auspicious ancestor, it's not in the same set as Swords to Plowshares!) In a sense, it even gives your other creatures that lack a resurrection ability something to do after they go to your graveyard, and that adds much-needed value and depth to aggressive strategies.

Scrapheap Scrounger (12/6)

 

If we’re going off of raw stats, Scrapheap Scrounger is excellent. Being unable to block makes this underwhelming if you have to play catch-up, but it's a 3/2 for 2 mana, which means it trades with a lot of early creatures or just gets in there to do some damage. Either one is good, especially early, and it can do well to pressure your opponent.

 

The other ability, to bring itself back in exchange for a creature from your graveyard, means this is a threat thst can keep coming back. There’s little reason to not just keep sending this into your opponent, hoping they’ll fold under its assault, and it's a useful piece in any graveyard-heavy deck. And even if you don't have black, it's still a 3/2 for 2 mana that benefits from all of the Kaladesh artifact support.
