Spawnwrithe Take 2!

In the history of Magic: the Gathering, there are creatures so good that updated versions of them need to be made. Such is the case of Spawnwrithe. Probably relegated to casual play, this creature offers us something somewhat cool in a reanimator style deck: the ability to replicate itself. While the other reanimator fatties are cool, they somewhat keel over and die to removal (obviously!) but if this guy lasts a turn, then your opponent’s out would be a mass removal spell (which not many Standard decks pack). This mythic will probably be in some demand early on at your local game store. I suggest you trade some quickly as I don’t see it becoming more than a mythic bulk card.
