Invocation: When you perform Burial Rite, if it is your fifth, seventh, or ninth time this match, invoke this card, then return it to your hand.
When this follower leaves play, or at the end of your turn, summon a Lich. (Transformation doesn't count as leaving play.)
Do not call to him. Do not glorify him. Do not follow him. The spirits that flock in his wake do so well enough. He is a lord with no vassals, charging into battle to hold service for the departed.

The dead worship at his feet while the living cower in fear. Never have I seen such a well-preserved corpse. O lord of release, your rage has brought us sweet salvation.
