Wow, Athreos is crazy good with white / black weenies or creatures with enter the battlefield / leave play effects. We can make a disruptive human deck with High Priest of Penance, Sin Collector, Thoughtseize, Cartel Aristocrat and Xathrid Necromancer. Add in Immortal Servitude too just for the heck of it.

Polymorphous Rush... Biovisionary anyone? :D
