I have seen the true potential of this card before; it is devastating. When played in an exalted deck with Rafiq of the Many, the game is pretty much over. Trample and double strike comined with power increase and the newly added Finest Hour ensure that the defending will certainly lose.

Best of the mimics. Lovely with favor of the overbeing followed by rafiq. 16 yaw!

Horribly powerful in casual because burn is almost the only way to get rid of it and it's not fun to have a lot of burn in a deck.

@talonaris: No. Nightsky Mimic and Riverfall Mimic are better, at least in conjunction with the correct enchantments. I'll take a 5/5 unblockable shroud with haste over a 7/5 flying vigilant trample any day. This thing can still beat your face in though.

Saha, how is this any harder to get rid of than any other creature? Even when boosted, its toughness is still reasonably low, it doesn't have shroud or protection or indestructability, and it's not even black. You can still block it, or Terror it, or Oblivion Ring it, or anything else you could do to a creature.

I must just have never seen these crushing decks... I've only seen this in decks that sucked (for deck disigned for mimics).

Played against too and it hits hard on turn 3 in the right deck !

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
