Is a play like that really so hard for green to do? The answer is no.
The point here is that it is creature advantage. I will have five or six creatures on turn three. Compared to your, what, three? Overrun can be played on turn four by the way.

Erik's Random card 7/19/2011

In design, these originally made mana crystals. You could sac one for a colorless mana, but it was not a creature. You would represent how many you had with a single number.

The problem was that Mark Rosewater wanted to do poison in the next set, and two big sets in a row with the extra number didn't seem right. So people looked for a replacement. Jay Schneider came up with "mana bots" which were later named "Eldrazi Spawn".

This card used to make 1 mana bot. I commented that the Ondu Giant was a lot better (why get a mana once when you could get a mana every turn from the land?) So Matt made this 2 mana bots. I still think the Giant was a lot better, but other people would draft this. I enjoyed the change a lot. My favorite deck to draft in the format was 4 color "not white". Ondu Giant was one of the strong commons in that deck. Other drafters would take the "green" green cards, while I would draft the "4 color" green cards. If I couldn't g... (see all)

The flavor text accurately describes playing against an Eldrazi deck.

Devour decks everywhere are gonna munch on spawn tokens.
This guy is rediculously efficient. Along with the two drop that shells out one toke and the spawn lord that gives 2/1 this could be a fun green deck.

Love this card, it's still a 3/3 costing 1G as it gives you 2 eldrazis. Very cool card.

I don't like the idea of going all out on one particular mechanic, but the idea of this + Growth Spasm + Broodwarden + Bramblesnap + Gravity Well for utility is looking pretty fun.

Of course you could add in Might of the Masses, or the obligatory Overrun but that would be silly and boring.

Mana ramp beat stick that can work nicely with overrun and marshal's anthem is great. This card will probably be underrated for a while before people realize how good it is. Again, fantastic top deck, you get 3 blockers all at once. Great revival card as well, and can be "flickered" off the battlefield and back with flicker form and otherworldly journey to give more tokens.

The only weakness it might have is that its competing with other powerful 4 drops in the same set.
