Leviathan is one of the most iconic creature in MTG, and he has one of the best art in history of MTG. Wohever, he is also one of the worst fatty in history of MTG.

Drawback is such a small word...

As poor as this card is, nobody can deny that its sheer size was incredible back in the day. Oh, sure, this poor monster is basically unplayable and its drawbacks sadly make it nearly useless even in reanimation decks (unlike Polar Kraken), but the old-school "wow, that's HUGE!" feeling will stay with us. After all, this fella did inspire later, useful Leviathans, such as its Inkwell and Stormtide cousins. So, the legacy lives on, even though nobody can really use a Leviathan.

This card is what twiddle effects were meant for. a one mana twiddle means a leviathan untapped the turn he comes out and only two islands sacked to attack. Combine him with elvish piper in a blue green deck and you have a 5th turn leviathan.

Just use Arena guys. Plus its not that hard to untap him, theres literally like a hundred blue untap cards, going all the way back to Twiddle. Attacking can be a pain, but which blue deck needs 9 Islands anyways.

The card that got me into blue in the first place. Bribery and Treachery kept me there back in the day. Now I can't bring myself to play blue despite my roots.

I was destroyed by this the other day.
My friend has a deck that accelerates into expensive bad creatures and then uses Homarid Spawning Bed to turn them in to lots of 1/1s.
I was assuming he would be sacrificing it on his next turn, and the turn after that I would have to deal with an army. I forgot that he could also sac four islands to attack immediately, and I died a horrible death.
