What's your favorite piece of flavor text in Innistrad?

Kelly Digges: The flavor of Innistrad is rich, managing to hit both brooding and fun, as appropriate. You've got holy soldiers, mad alchemists, demon worshippers, debauched vampires, and some really crazy necromancers. Sometimes it's eerie, sometimes it's sad, sometimes it's grimly hilarious.

If "grimly hilarious" were my thing, I'd have to go with Ludevic's Abomination. Its logic is so straightforward, almost inescapable. But there's one piece I like even more: Gatstaf Shepherd:

"What is worse than a wolf in sheep's clothing?"
—Wolfhunter's riddle

The back face doesn't have flavor text; the art does all the work on that side. But what I love about this piece is that it manages to put a twist on a really tired old saying—that is completely true and more than a bit chilling.
