Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet
 
Kalitas is a little expensive to be counted among the traditional class of hate card: the larger competitive formats tend to prefer those that cost around two to three, like Thalia or Qasali Pridemage. Yet I don't expect that to hold him back too much, overall: graveyard decks in Commander and similar formats tend to thrive in the late game, and in such a setting four mana is actually cheap to lock out Ghave's gameplan. And did you notice that this is like the only time where his final line doesn't include the phrase "nontoken"? Zombie Infestation doesn't really need much help, but now there's at least one more thing to do with it!
