Mortus Strider - 1UB
Creature - Skeleton (Common)
When Mortus Strider dies, return it to its owner's hand.
Dimir's best agents hide from death itself.
Mortus Strider can stall games until you draw an answer. Mortus Strider can help you mill an opponent when combined with Consuming Aberration. If you've managed to acquire any Extort creatures in your limited pool such as Thrull Parasite, Syndic of Tithes, or Crypt Ghast you'll be able to turn casting Mortus Strider into a win condition.
Another way to abuse Mortus Strider is with an Ogre Slumlord on the battlefield to create a horde of deathtouch rat tokens. It also makes a tasty snack for Grimgrin, Corpse-Born or any other sacrifice outlet you may have.
