Theros: Gray Merchant of Asphodel
|Type:||Creature - Zombie|
|When Gray Merchant of Asphodel enters the battlefield, each opponent loses X life, where X is your devotion to black. You gain life equal to the life lost this way. (Each in the mana costs of permanents you controls counts toward your devotion to black.)|
Gray Merchant of Asphodel (affectionately known as "Gary") was the backbone of the Mono-Black Devotion deck in Theros-era Standard. It has long been a Pauper all-star and staple of black-based Commander decks.
