what an underated card - no buddy got the message that you need to you Blessing of the Nephilim and Might of the Nephilim in order to use (you guessed it) Nephilim cards successfuly, and turn the restrictive mana costs into an advantage. I have two in my "Gold" (multicolor) deck, never failed me before, effects fine to.

4/4.5 out of 5. (for the low rating, i will boost it up with the 4.5, respectively...)

Too much color weight.
Four colors are always too much, and this is a 2/2 for FOUR mana with a very interesting ability.
However, don't forget about Dwarven Warriors!
Concerning the artwork, this is one of the most disturbing things I have ever seen...

All of the nephilims become quite fun when combined with the dual color enchantments like Helm of the Ghastlord. This guy can be great acceleration if you can work it well enough.

Nephilims need Pathmages. Or at least this one and Yore-Tiller do. Actually Dune-Brood would be nice for that too, too bad it has 3 power....

Glint-Eye is probably the least impressive of all the Nephilim. It doesn't have a real grandiose ability, like Radiating spells or spitting out gross amounts of tokens. It has a very self-synergistic ability, and I like that. But I think what really hurts it is adding that one colorless mana to the activated ability. Would it have made a four-color, four-mana 2/2 a complete game-breaker to make it a little more similar to Wild Mongrel? I seriously doubt it. But it would have improved the card a lot for the Johnny crowd, wanting to abuse this cycle of creatures.

The Nephilim with the best-thought-out color combination. GreenBlue gives card draw for damage (check out Cold-Eyed Selkie), while BlackRed gives pump for discard. If only it was stronger, it would be akin to Psychatog, but alas, Wizards were probably concerned about unbalancing the Nephilim cycle.

Here's hoping for a legendary, mythic approach to the Nephilim in the next Ravnica set.

The least impressive of the Nephilim, and still a powerhouse in the right hands. The cost is restrictive, yes, but with support this guy could be a brutal beater and a help sift through your deck for your other insane cards. Combos well with Yore-Tiller Nephilim as well. Discard something, then bring it back with Yore-Tiller. Ta dah!

Helm of the Ghastlord or Clout of the Dominus maybe? Both pump it up, one gives additional draw plus discard, the other protects. All you need is something to make it unblockable.

You have to tap one colorless mana each time you want to use the ability.

Nice card to use in a multicolor deck - and to draw cards when needed by attacking after a giant growth or pump up - also a way to get rid of a card in hand that will not be used also to pump up the GLINT +1+1

but how many cards may be discarded in this way ? one or more than one based on one TAP for activation cost ?
