I’m mainly mentioning this card because of the Morbid Mechanic. As Daily MTG put it, “In Innistrad, the death of one may be the opportunity for others.” Do you know what deck kills things all the time? Birthing Pod.

Seeing as a creatures dies before the creature emerges from the Pod, you could sacrifice a Simulacrum, draw your card, then have Hollowhenge Scavenger come into play, and gain 5 life. Seeing as Obstinate Baloth, which is what Pod usually gains life from, is going out, I think Hollowhenge Scavenger and other creatures with Morbid could see play in the new format with the Innistrad block. Maybe other creatures with Morbid is horrifically outclass this card. But until we have the entire set, we can’t be sure of that.
