This is a creature bred for WAR.
It's quite possibly the first creature that I paid 7 mana for and didn't feel cheated.
For many a game it has been the physical manifestation of the phrase "Wrath of God or die, please."

Limited bomb-city (arguably the bombiest rare in Dissension), not to mention the fact that it makes a fine work-towards-me big guy for a casual ramp or combo deck. My playset of this guy has served me in many a casual deck over the years. Now, to make my Ula's Temple deck work...

Oddly enough, this card lost his spot as my finisher in a U/G control deck to Plated Slagwurm.
Still one of my favorite cards to this day.

Opponent plays Baneslayer, then smirks as I graft it.
Next turn I play Simic Sky Swallower and give it 4 counters.
My next turn I drop a Cytoplast Manipulator and he almost cries.

I had this is a graveyard recursion deck very briefly before deciding it was no fun (not for me, and certainly not for my opponent). The proper use is the obvious one, a late game beater. Shroud is so much cooler than hexproof. Beautiful card. 5/5

Bred out the shortcomings of Leviathans indeed.

Fantastic creature. Just wish it had some kind of graft-skill-sharing ability. I mean its Simic's big gun (aside from Kraj, and it didn't have sharing abilities either).

This puts most dragons to shame. Especially poor Ancient Hellkite.

A really uderestimated creature. Right now, with targeted removal being so damn strong and all over the place, his Shroud makes him a truly unstoppable beast that will most likely catch your opponents with their pants down. 5/5

This and inkwell leviathan really turned the leviathan type around...they used to be giant creatures that had ridiculous, unplayable drawbacks. I cracked one of these in the first dissension booster I ever opened and it has won me many a game.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
