When Obzedat, Ghost Council enters the battlefield, target opponent loses 2 life and you gain 2 life.
At the beginning of your end step, you may exile Obzedat, Ghost Council. If you do, return it to the battlefield under its owner's control at the beginning of your next upkeep. It gains haste.

Obzedat, Ghost Council Discussion
2 hours ago
If you are running Black and White, I would suggest running Obzedat, Ghost Council. Hes pretty good, especially if your deck is based around gaining/draining. You can keep exiling him and returning him each turn to drain more and more.

I'm a little too Spikey myself to have a truly terrible pet card, but Brimaz, King of Oreskos and Obzedat, Ghost Council are for sure my favorite "pet" cards I have. Still want to make a bad ass deck with both of them in Modern, which I think both have enough power for. Dead-Guy Ale for the win!

@ Wizard_of_the_Broke Yeah, I added it back in. I also realized it can be an Aether Vial of sorts, with a curve of Inquisition of Kozilek into Beck / Call into Lingering Souls, all at essentially instant speed.
I did get closer to that list, but definitely not that list. I made the switches too. I'll probably adjust as I test more, but I think it seems functional at the moment. Thanks for your help!
@ Randomdeath I would like to add some Thoughtseize, but my issue is the space. Getting the numbers is weird, so I'm gonna test it out. Obzedat, Ghost Council and Goryo's Vengeance seems super cool (Obzedaddy is one of my top 3 cards of all time), but I don't think many people would want to give you either (unless you also have Snapcaster Mage and Unburial Rites?), so I don't think I'll add it, yet. Thanks though!

IM playing a esper gifts deck right now and while my list could use a bit a tweaking it still runs really well but running 1-2 Thoughtseize is good cause you already take hits playing the deck, some Inquisition of Kozilek are just as good. But I try to counteract all that with using Obzedat, Ghost Council and Goryo's Vengeance as part of my gifts piles. Is link the deck im using but im horribly at that so. Yeah.

Deck looks awesome, and I love the 2 of Obzedat, Ghost Council, which is one of my favorite cards of all time. +1 from me!

rjphilla Nykthos janks up the mana too much and the payoff is not high enough. What am I ramping into?
I've been thinking of trying to fit a Whip in here for a while, and whipping back Gary/Pack Rat might be relevant enough that it's worth it; but I'm not sure the creature count is high enough nor the EtBs powerful enough to be worth taking two turns off. I'd be more prone to playing it in BW, honestly, with Obzedat, Ghost Council. But this is one of those cards where I'm trying really hard to be convinced and Whip is a personal favourite of mine as Apakakuta will testify, so if you can convince me, please, I'd be very very happy to be convinced.
With regard to Gary ... I won't deny there are games when all I want to do is draw Gary, and he def. gets better in multiples. But even 3 is proving too much, since drawing them early game is way too bad. This is Modern, after all, and early interaction is much too important. I've been using Gary as a finisher more than as a card integral to the game plan - to break through board stalls, win games through Ensnaring Bridge or after my opponent is at a low enough life total, or even just as a lifegain source to pair with Erebos, God of the Dead and Phyrexian Arena. Also, I CAN recur his effect by minusing Liliana, the Last Hope. Playing with the numbers for sure, but would probably be more likely to play Collective Brutality no. 4 over another Gary.
