Ok, this guy would be REAL sick with a Training Grounds.

How does he know that he's in a game?

Something fishy is going on here.

By becoming a wizard, he cast spell to make himself less ugly.

Re all the comments about how different he looks - generally I agree, it's a shame they did that. Athough Laquatas really should be quite attractive to be the charismatic devil he's meant to be, who knows what an attractive merfolk looks like?

But Wizard's has a bit of an out on him, because he's capable of shapeshifting between a swimming form (this one) and a walking form (Oddessy version). Maybe his face changes too?

are there 2 laquatus? well, the drawing of the other ambassador laquatus shows us another guy. :P
very nice card. It is good by itself.

Looks like our Ambassador has gotten himself some plastic surgery.

Dude, if by "base" you mean "1/3 merfolk for 1uu" then this card should start with *. Which would leave it at ** except on a merfolk mill deck.

The problem is that you completely forgot about threshold and flashback and unearth. So that +*

I agree with the prior comments from Guest and Zulp.
New artworks are something we're familiar with in Core Sets (or reprints in general), yet it's kind of strange having a completely different artwork for a legend which depicts a very specific being.
I like it, but i think they should at least have made a very similar one.
Even green Kamahl for instance has a strong resemblance to the red one - which on top of that kept his appearance as opposed to Laquatus in his new Tenth Edition artwork.

He combos quite nicely with hedron crab and, of course, training grounds.

I have a merfolk mill deck that is just built for him. A pity he's not useful for anything else

Base: ***

Nasty Mill power: +**
Semi Narrow purpose: -*

Final: ****

On an interesting side note: the other one dose not list him as a wizard. (Yes, I know that older cards should use references but I like to rely exclusively on the cards) I Guess that technically makes this version slightly better. (Although, there is just something wrong with this art, I don't know, I just don't like it)

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
