Not great? I guess you must think that Blastoderm is pathetic too Mr. Shrike.

A colour shifting of Blastoderm. It would seem that vanishing 4 is the functional equivalent of fading 3, due to the wording of the abilities.

Sounds like a skin condition.

This card is great!! A 5/5 for 4 with shroud?! Who wouldn't like that?
Use it with Dust Elemental,Stonecloaker and Whitemane Lion.

Don't use it with anything... It's just a mid-game attack card. It's efficient, protected from removal, and not restrictively expensive. It's quite a lot over the curve for an uncommon. A 5/5 with shroud is not going to die to anything but Wrath. At 4 mana, your opponent probably isn't going to have a bigger creature - though, obviously, a 5/5 is not devastatingly large in constructed. If they don't get a 6/6 or a Wrath, this will deal 15 damage. I'm not complaining.

The things to combo this guy with are Soul Foundry, Raise Dead, Brion Stoutarm, and Fling.

Yeah, the vanishing is nothing to worry about at all. Most creatures die for what ever reason before it has been down for 2 turns so it has a much better survivability than other things; in addition, most non casual games don't last longer than 7 turns anyways so you don't have to worry about it dieing before the game is over.

Even more, you can use this effectively by having it as the only creature down under your control, most opponents will not be happy to wrath only one creature but they really won't have a choice, it needs to be answered. If it does finally die to fading, well it was down for 4 turns, you most likely would have topdecked another one by then.

Note: Proliferate does not target. So shroud won't stop you from piling on the time counters with this counteriffic new ability.

Miss.Shrike=Noob. Calciderm is sick not to mention the insane artwork so power creep mad props to blastoderm too ofcourse and the borders on cards like this and Damnation are spectacular

not great really.
5/5 for 2ww is just over the white efficiancy mark.
its leaving in 4 turns anyway so your only getting 3 attacks out of it and having shroud means that you cant do anything to the counters.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
