How do I use this Card?

Basically you need a lot of tokens to sacrifice and at least a little bit of control or health gain in order to survive long enough to see your Altar work properly; also you need different magicka cost creatures so you won't have any useless turn.
It basically works this way: sacrifice > summons > triggers the summoning effect. It does great in combo with cards like Cauldron Keeper and anything that has a summon ability (Odahviing, Ancano and Divayth Fyr the best examples).

if you have no creatures of X magika, you obtain a Sweet Roll :(
Absolutely amazing card. You have to build your entire deck around it, so Last Gasp Assassin or Sorcerer is the best deal. Scouts can make good use of it too. The trick is get 2 trios of creatures on each cost with good summon and/or last gasp abilities. Combo that with Dark Rebirth, Cruel Firebloom, Necrom Mastermind and Journey to Sovngarde and voilá.
Personally I love to summon a free Indoril Archmage over a Brutal Ashlander.

Okay, first don't listen to this old me. Brutal Ashlander sucks as well as adding those other sacrifice cards. Also it sucks on sorcerer and scout. Use it on telvanni or assassin. And only use indoril archmage if you have extra space cuz most of the time it's dead. And don't just use last gasp crap. Find a nice deck on this website instead of listening to me also works.
One of my favourite card. It gives you a huge advantage in right hands... huge! Also if you are in trouble forget to play it, play Icestorm instead!!! hehe Altar builds up slowly. Absolutely love this card!
Can be funny with Shadowmare :D
