Furnace of Rath or other damage-doubling effects make this go boom, as the first one deals 3 * 2 = 6 damage to the second one, which deals (3 + 6) * 2 = 18 damage to the third one, which deals (3 + 18) * 2 = 42 to the fourth one, which deals (3 + 42) * 2 = 90 damage to a Stuffy Doll, which deals 90 * 2 = 180 damage to your opponent, who hopefully dies.

Its a cheap multi-use creature that can survive pyroclasm (If you didn't want it to survive that, you would have included a lightning bolt or incinerate instead). It does lots of things almost well. It is unique and causes strange board calculations.
Everytime it comes out in my group (at least every other month), we shout its nickname in mock disgust: "EFFING BLAZIGY".
A card doesn't have to be good to be loved. It is so much fun to attack with in multi-player magic.

mmm... I'm not so sure this is as terrible as it looks - no matter what you still get 3 damage off, kinda like a cheaper version of Mudbutton Torchrunner. It's an okay blocker for 2 CMC. It's not the best, but it could certainly be worse...

mirrorweave would just make this card fun
maybe in a red/blue counter/burn multiplayer deck

@Szyx: I don't see how that would work. Remember, the effect doesn't care about how much damage has been done to it unless it's been done by another Effigy, so the Shivan Meteor is useless. It doesn't matter how you kill the first Effigy, and the fourth one will only deal 12 damage upon dying. So I guess with four of these and a Lightning Bolt you can kill a Phyrexian Dreadnought.

@achilleselbow If I had four of these out, I'd rather sacrifice them to the Dreadnought and deal 12 damage to my opponent's creatures.

A very flavourful card, but as Mr_Hendry states, the uses for this card are far too narrow...

This was useless until devour was created.

I am fairly sure that the primary/fun purpose of this card is to set of a small effigy chain reaction. But even with out that combo it still does three damage. It might be worth while to consider regeneration with regards to this card.
