Reanimate is a slang term given to the ability of putting creatures from your graveyard into the battle zone.


The ability appears in many variants, usually differing in the costs or types of creatures that can be returned from your graveyard.

It is an ability that first appeared on Inferno Gate, a card that later got put into the Premium Hall of Fame due to its power.

■ Put a non-evolution creature from your graveyard into the battle zone.

As there are many cards that can help put your own cards into your graveyard, usually seen as a disadvantage (such as Dandy Nasuo or Emergency Typhoon), the Reanimate strategy can be quite strong with its ability to reuse creatures in combos with those types of cards.

There are also many cards that can put your own cards from your deck into your graveyard.

It is most commonly found on Darkness Civilization cards due to their association with a player’s graveyard, but has also appeared on cards such as Light Gate in the Light Civilization, or on Rising NEX, the Enlightened in the Fire Civilization.
