Starting today, Nov. 1, 2013 "Magic: the Gathering" players can get their hands on a new promotional alternate art foil Grisly Salvage at "Friday Night Magic" events.
Grisly Salvage - BG
Reveal the top five cards of your library. You may put a creature or land card from among them into your hand. Put the rest into your graveyard.
"To the Golgari, anything buried is treasure."
Originally printed in "return to Ravnica" as a common, Grisly Salvage does multiple things at once: Ensure you have enough lands to cast your spells or search for a vital threat while also dumping four other cards into your graveyard.
To put Grisly Salvage's power in perspective, Impulse only digs for four cards instead of five, and doesn't yield you any additional resources like Grisly Salvage does. The four cards put into your graveyard can have synergy with other components of your deck. For instance, Grisly Salvage will pump your Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord with useful scavenge creatures like Deadbridge Goliath and ensuring that you have enough creatures in your graveyard so that you needn't sacrifice the Shadowborn Demon you find with it.
How will you use Grisly Salvage?
