Isareth the Awakener
It was one of my rares from Sealed I just cracked. I decided to do one more M19 in hopes of another Demon of Catastrophes but no such luck.
In a vacuum it doesn't seem bad to me but I haven't seen it played at all. 3cmc for a 3/3 Deathtouch isn't bad to begin with and the ability looks like it could be a decent mana sink or blowout in a reanimator deck. The attack clause sucks but it is Deathtouch so how many people are going to chump?

Discuss.

Good in limited, mediocre in constructed. You don't get to cheat on mana with Isareth, you only get to grind more, at which point you might as well play Golgari.

3/3 deathtouch for 3 isn't particularly strong. It's not bad, but not good either. Opponents might not have to chump - they can also trade, e.g. Resplendent Angel, Jadelight Ranger, Enigma Drake, Steel Leaf Champion are some of the common 3-drops I can think of that all trade with it. You trade at parity so it's still not terrible, but you're still the one attacking.

Thinking along the same lines as I'm concluding. It's in my Sealed deck I've yet to play but I can't think of anything I would want to replace in my Golgari deck for it in Constructed.

It found some play in early Golgari builds when the meta was still less settled, but it seems there are just better 3-drops (or they are just skipped these days, except Jadelight of course). It's not a bad card, if unopposed you can get some value, and it stops a Carnage Tyrant if needed. But for recursion/utility Find/Finality is just better.
