He is very much meant to be played with his own enchantment, the only issue I see is the same as another comment mentioned, there are equally good cards for the same mana cost. Terra stomper is 8/8 uncounterable with trample for 6 cmc, though without the regeneration, being only 1 mana higher. I still wouldn't hesitate to use this guy in a black/green deck with his own enchantment and creakwood liege. A gorgon flail wouldn't hurt either, or a quietus spike. A troll ascetic played early and enchanted with a powerful enchantment might be just as good though. Play with cauldron of souls, then use his regeneration to remove negative counters gained during persist, and you have an undying creature, so long as it doesn't get exiled.

In past sets a creature like this would have been devastating. Its surely no Spiritmonger but is definitely a spiritual successor to the beast. For a green creature, its 7/7 trampler for 7 at max, nothing new or amazing but a solid creature. For black however, a 5/5 or 6/6 regenerating trampler is nothing to scoff at. The Deity's main strength is in its ability to be cast rather cheaply early on and built up later (it also has a resistance to wither).

This was my favorite demigod by far,
Simply because his aura, Gift of the Deity, fit his abilities most fluidly.
I can't recall how many boardwipes my opponents went through with this guy.
And considering one of my friends was using R/W weenie, is was one of the funniest moments I got to experience.

Aaron's Random Card Comment of the Day #8, 10/6/10

This dude is part of a ten-card cycle across Shadowmoor and Eventide that we called “quints”, meaning creatures with five hybrid mana symbols in their cost (each of whose name is a synonym for “god“). The goal of the cycle was to make aggressively-costed creatures that could only go into certain decks. The Deity, for instance, would be impressive in a mono-green, mono-black, or black-green deck, but would not be a realistic option for, say, a red-green deck. We hoped they’d be good enough for high-level constructed play, which was a challenge because many of the creature decks at the time relied on tribal synergies. The Shadowmoor ones did pretty well in this regard--Demigod of Revenge was a defining card in Standard for a while, Oversoul of Dusk showed up from time to time, and Deus of Calamity was a part of an “All-In Red” deck in Extended. ... (see all)

Hey, powerdude. Not that I'm in the TERMINATE the Deity camp or anything, but Terminate specifically says the creature can't be regenerated. However, Maelstrom Pulse to the Demigod's would be an adequate response.

I do not think, that second cycle of avatars is much worse, than the original. For example Divinity of Pride is one of my beloved cards, either for its self-sustaining abilities, either its cool picture and flavor. I used it in my monowhite Lifegain-Avatar deck (which turned out to not be as good as I thought) and then it helped me in great multiplayer games against seven another players. For me it is best of the avatars:-)

A great, solid card with multiple uses. Definitely viable to toss a few of these in any pure green, black, or black/ green deck. (Not to forget the most beast-like flavor text ever)

@Sutebe: Long story short, he's basically a wild animal turned into the physical embodiment of the instinct to survive.

In a casual Modern deck, this is kind of a beast with Gray Merchant of Asphodel.

If they ever do persist again I hope they make a 3 mana cost version of this guy with persist. Maybe:

{(b/g)}{(b/g)}{(b/g)}
Creature
Persist
{(b/g)}{(b/g)}, Remove a -1/-1 counter, regenerate ~
2/2

Basically this makes it a super skeleton that can only be exiled if you keep pumping mana into him. Survives -X/-X debuffs, sacrifices, and destroy. It still dies to -1/-1 counters if you don't have mana, but.. that's fine. They could alternatively do the opposite with undying:

{(b/g)}{(b/g)}
Creature
Undying
{(b/g)}, Remove a +1/+1 counter, regenerate ~
1/1

which would be neat as it makes killing the thing a pain, but it's also not much of a threat

Rather a nice card. Saving its skin and making it bigger at the same time are definitely a plus.

a 5/5 trample for 5 mana, that can regenarate itself twice for {S/F} and only gets bigger in the process?

The flavour text really doesn't do him justice. Go read his part in the Seer's Parables, and learn why he's awesome.

I'm a big fan of this entire cycle, but I consider Scarsy here one of the worst members thereof. I'll write about my opinions of all of them someday, but for now I'll stay on topic. The name is rather boring compared to something like "Demigod of Revenge" or "Overbeing of Myth", the flavor text is incredibly dull, and the ability, while decent, feels well short of deity status.

Here's an off-the-cuff attempt at a better version. The name isn't perfect, as I'm finding it hard to come up with a single word which means "refusal to surrender to the inevitability of death" or the like (basically, for being The Terminator, that's what I see as being the concept behind a BG "god"); I've settled for "relentlessness" but would rather have not used "-ness". I also prefer "Progenitor" as the first part of the name, as this is the most BG-appropriate synonym for "Deity", but I figured that a four-syllable first word followed by "of" leaves very few options for the name's final word without re...
