What's your favorite undying card in Dark Ascension?

Kelly Digges: Although I'm a big fan of Vorapede, Flayer of the Hatebound, and the adorable Young Wolf, I'm going to cheat a bit here and go with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed.

OK, so he doesn't have undying, but he does give undying to all of your other inhuman monstrosities—other Zombies emphatically included. And there are so many ways to bring Zombies in particular back to the battlefield (hello, Zombie Apocalypse!) that even if he does die, it probably won't be for long. And that's while he's making any humans that hit you dead and probably bashing for 5 in there as well.

On top of his game play, though, I absolutely love Mikaeus's role in the story: a human religious leader raised from the dead by Liliana just so she could pump him for information. His art is weirdly noble, as befits a fallen cleric, and I love Jenna Helland's excellent preview story about Mikaeus and the fall of Thraben.
