Dandân. When you see it...

Now if only it had islandwalk.

Sneak Sakashima's Student onto the field with ninjutsu and let him copy Dandân.
That gives you a 4-power Ninja Fish attacking your opponent no matter if they have any islands or not!
That's right, a Ninja Fish is just that awesome.

You guys are underestimating him. He is absolutely excellent in a blue islandhome deck, or at least he was for his time. Combine with Tidal Warrior, Phantasmal Terrain, etc. to force your opponent to have an island. Then you have a 4/1 for 2 mana. Great for putting the pressure on and discouraging people from attacking. Then of course you also want Seasinger and every other islandhome creature.

This card isn't quite as bad as it seems at first. Compare to Wall of Torches -- if you're already running Spreading Seas or something similar, this card can act as cheap defense that will likely trade off with something costing more, and if you get an island on your opponent's side of the board, it can also attack.

It's not great, but even a 4/1 defender for two mana wasn't so bad back in the day.

This goes in my accent deck. Also, at first, I thought the ships were the creature, but it's not.

C'mon, it's {U}{U} for 4 power. It's a solid defensive threat even if you can't swing with it, and very good for breaking control mirrors (comes down turn 2, demands answer)

@DaaNz "fish don't swim vertically"

You haven't seen very many fish, have you?
Blue gills and many other sunfish do a very good job of swimming vertically when they are eating stuff floating on the surface of the water.
Great white sharks and many other fish will swim vertically when they rush the surface in order to pounce on their prey.
I'm sure there are numerous other examples. It is pretty common really.

Believe it or not, for the longest time I wondered why this card looked like a boat but was classed as a fish.

Then I, uh, looked at it again.

"I can't believe they timeshifted this carp."

Fixed that for you.
