I play this in my speed Faeries deck. Get everything out on the field, bullrush with a ton of 1/1 fliers, fill your spells with counters, if they ever do manage to get a big creature out, give them -11/-0 just by tapping for two. One of my favorite cards in the game.

Love this merfolk. you can have a slew of merfolk out and you only need to leave this ome little guy untapped to prevent some pretty hefty damage.

@rinoh20: Your comment made me laugh, because I run a fairie deck myself and I know how broken the good old Spellstutter Sprite is.
P.S.: A -2/11 Blighsteel Colossus would give you 2 anti poison counters. :P No, it wouldn't, I know, but it would be funny i guess.

why do people rate this so low? in either merfolk or faeries, this is a constant shut down of their big attacker.

Great defender. Let your islandwalkers pick apart your oponent while Merfolk Sharpshooter and Silgergill Douser defend. If you can swap a card's power and toughness, Silvergill Douser is also a great assassin. (Reduce power to zero, swap and the creature dies.).

Sir Fargojake, there is a Merfolk creature with such a caliber of switching creatures powers. It is called, sir, Merfolk Thaumaturgist. With one mana more you can start killing opposing creatures barring your way to victory.

you should be ashamed for not spell stuttering that blightstell.

must have been great in Lorwyn Draft, but other than that not the best.

Weird. If I'm reading this right, if you're playing with both faeries and merfolk, you get to choose one of three X values, i.e, either the number of faeries, the number of merfolk, or both combined. That... is interesting.
