Ha. I get it. Once you drop this guy for GG, well then its GG.

An 8/8 for {8} with trample is decent, but an 8/8 with trample for {G}{G} is astounding! Just make sure you use cards that force your opponent to have more creature than you do (preferably small ones) such as Forbidden Orchard so that you can use that tasty alternative casting cost. A card that also benefits from this is Defense of the Heart

Yeah, in the X Ed. set, there were a lot of cards that had very long reminder text, as this set was designed to try and help beginning players learn some of the more rudimentary keywords. However, when the cards were printed in the same set as foil, the reminder text was dropped, and flavor text was added. The X Ed. Pariah has the same thing going on.

screw terra stomper. this guy is solid sideboard material against all sorts of weenie/token decks. you could easily play this before terra stomper, even without orchestrating it, like with hunted troll or forbidden orchard.

I think that the flavor text is on the foil card. Foils don't have the reminder text.

I run three of these things in a fatty deck with Defense of the Heart. I loved it, then this guy I was playing Comet Stormed both of them and smacked me for 8. Not a great success.

I think you fail to see the niche this guy fits. He can fit in a cmc >=6 or power >=5 deck, and is a decent card hard cast, but those decks can sometime get a slow start creature-wise. This guy becomes an 8/8 Trample for 2 mana when you need it the most.

This is one of the best solutions to mana screw in my mayael edh.

The gatherer says this card has flavor text, and it's not too bad either "In their most desperate hour, the elves of Llanowar had one song left to sing" but there clearly isn't any room on the card for it. What's the deal, Wizards?

expensive but a true show of force. rips through enemy lines in a previously stalemated game
