Sentry of the Underworld - 3WB
Creature - Griffin Skeleton (Uncommon)
WB, Pay 3 life: Regenerate Sentry of the Underworld.
When Athreos gathers the newly dead to be ferried across the Five Rivers That Ring the World, he sends skeletal griffins to fetch those who stray.
Sentry of the Underworld's activation cost may be considered a bit steep at two mana and three life, however that's a small price to pay if you're saving Sentry of the Underworld from a removal spell or able to take out one of your opponent's attacking creatures like Kragma Warcaller. If you're using Sentry of the Underworld to chump block each turn, then you'll quickly run out of life to pay.
Sentry of the Underworld shines in "Theros" limited, where it can deal with the majority of non-rare fliers you'll encounter, from a troublesome Calvary Pegasus to Insatiable Harpy. The trifecta of flying, vigilance, and regeneration help make this Griffin Skeleton a troublesome creature for your rival to deal with, especially when it's enchanted with a bestow creature.
