Gravecrawler
 
I remember seeing this card as one of the previews for Dark Ascension and raising an eyebrow, much like Mr. Spock, at what it implied. Yes, it doesn't look like so much next to Praetors and Sphinxes and Eldrazi and Titans, which everyone was still reeling from at the time. A 2/1 creature doesn't always read so impressively compared to aggro creatures, depending on what sort of tribe or theme is being pushed in a particular year. But then you think about how it keeps coming back. And coming back. And coming back. That damage adds up over time, and your opponent's removal spells and blockers run down. Even more so if your opponent decides there's no point in killing it - even much more humble cards like Flying Men or Llanowar Elves can deal more damage than a Lightning Bolt because they don't look like they're worth dealing with.

And yet another special printing of Gravecrawler in a deck, and.... we only get one copy per deck. Again. Way to jerk us around Wotc. Anyway, Prized Amalgam loves this card. LOVES. THIS. CARD. Plenty others do too, I just felt the need to mention something out of the new set that actively suffers for the lack of this being reprinted in standard. Oh well.
