Talking about "power creep" in the early days of Magic, look at Land Leeches.

One of the most obsoleted cards ever, obsolete when printed, and obsoleted in the next set...I'm surprised this card doesn't give out poison counters...

"Aside from the fact that this card is rather ridiculous"

Well, the name alone...

Wizards should make a set with the theme: "Vertebrate-Invertebrate hybrids"

... Glowworm-Gorilla

Aside from the fact that this card is rather ridiculous (e.g. when compared to Elvish Archers), shouldn't its creature type actually include the type Insect as well? I mean, look at the artwork, look at its name.
If Coiling Oracle manages to be an Snake Elf, this shouldn't have any problems being a Snake Insect, should it?

I'm also wondering how a Hornet Cobra can not have a deathtouch-related ability...

Really should have had a different ability. Deathtouch or similar, or poison. Hmm, Deathtouch and First Strike would be a very nice ability combination. As would Deathtouch and Poisonous.

Terrible card - but great art.

"I have this card in a different language.. Spanish or something"

That would be Italian. Legends' printrun in Italian was almost three times greater than in English.

I have this card in a different language..

Anyways, there are better cards.

Not sure this warrants a half star. It's certainly outdated, but especially for the time there were worse 3 CMC green creatures out there (the 2/2's with landwalk come to mind from Ice Age). But either way, I like to think it's a decent tradeoff compared to Scathe Zombies, rather have the first strike than one toughness.

Of course, that's a black and this is green, so... still, I'd nearly consider this playable, but not quite. Maybe 1 and a half stars or so.
