Haha. Tortoise Formation is like negative power creep on this.

2/2 for 2 is good enough
team shroud until end of turn for 2 is even better!
this is still good in any blue decks =

I like how this is supposed to be a Beast.

It's quite funny. I never really knew the power this card had until today.

Hey look, Evoke! Sort of.

a 2/2 flash for UG is nothing bad. the flash is especially good in the 'graft' guild. but to counter a spell aimed at your creature makes it a very good card. I'm a fan. go simic!

I used to use a pair of these with Cloudstone curio. And one time, this dude kept trying to kill my stuff! We were all saying "Dude, you cant target his creatures!"... good times. good times...

This is surprisingly powerful for an older card.

Very efficient, makes a great response to any removal while you can get a 2/2 for 2cc that might find use as surprise blocker.
It's a little bit comparable to Vines of Vastwood, you decide which one suits better in your deck.

One of the main reasons why i thought about splashing blue for a beast deck - it gets even better with Wirewood Savage, could be fed to Ravenous Baloth even if you can't afford the green mana for some reason, and can do a good amount of damage with AEther Charge.

Also useful with bounce effects (like Trusted Advisor) or Momentary Blink (although the latter will kill him),
so you always have something to shroud your creatures.
