Gentlemen, gentlemen... just stifle it as it comes into play, then untap it with either an isochron-sceptered twiddle or murkfiend liege or something similar. The enablers are out there, you just have to look.

Personally Leviathans (and certain Serpents too) are my favorite creature type. Because sometimes even blue has to put down the wizard staff and hang up its cloak and just ruin sh!t with a creature the size of an aircraft carrier. Who says smashy creatures should only be green?

@TheSwarm: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leviathan

Big sea monsters. Sea = Blue, Big Monsters = Huge. The sac'ing because, quote "The Leviathan of the Middle Ages was used as an image of Satan, endangering both God's creatures—by attempting to eat them—and God's creation—by threatening it with upheaval in the waters of Chaos." So, to summon it, you need to give it something (lands) to eat. It's a classic fantasy trope. No flavour problem here.

It's true that its ghastly additional costs make this leviathan unsuitable for most decks. However, with a Cemetery Puca already in play, you can avoid not only the land sacrifice but also the summoning sickness. Simply don't sacrifice a land, pay an extra (1), and voilà!

One of the oft-overlooked leviathans.

Huge. Big. Interesting. Weird.

No real comments on this one... the ability that lets it untap when you play islands as opposed to sacing them is nice.

Still, like most leviathans, not that great.

Wow, that's a really good idea Belz_. Still, a CMC of 4BlueBlueBlue is too much for most constructed decks. Best leave this for casual tables.

You better have a trick up your sleeve or some balls playing this guy. To risky for me, my dad plays a the zendikar vampire deck so feast of bloods and deathtouch is always up his sleeve. Good against inexperienced players or if you can win right away with him.

Guys. He's a 12/12 with trample. Okay, saccing five lands sucks. But still. And it's certainly a lot better than older leviathans; sacrifice four lands every time you attack? I don't think so.
Actually, this guy is made for comboing with Crucible of Worlds. Seriously.

This can actually be efficient when used in conjunction with an Unbender Tine. The land sacrificing is unfortunate, but who wouldn't do that for a 12/12 trampler?
