Combo with 4 copies of B.F.M. (Big Furry Monster) for a silly huge creature.

This is solid in certain setup's... Needs some sort of protection though. Too expensive. But... has reallllllly sick artwork. Love it.

I'm gonna make a deck for this guy with some Phthisis' and Temporal Extortion's. Maybe add some guys like Liege of the Pit for added fun.

This guy reallllly wants something extra.

Some form of evasion or some manner of protection.
Otherwise, he's "just" a fatty...

This guy costs too much.

That said, he has awesome art and a neat ability. 4/5

Behind his complicated ability, he is fundamentally a vanilla. Sure, he's a big vanilla that can do scary things, but if you are using a strategy that can abuse him then you should probably be running Avatar of Woe, Chainer, or Sheoldred, the Whispering One instead.

Play him in monoblack and he'll probably be bigger than anything else on the table by the time you get to seven mana, especially if you have a lot of cards with BlackBlack or even BlackBlackBlack (another Umbra Stalker?) in their casting costs. I'd use him with Rakdos (the guild, not the Defiler), but the red splash dilutes his power.

Art is awesome and ability is cool... but he's damn expensive for what amounts to a vanilla creature. Sure, he becomes epicly fat, but what's the use if he doesn't trample? It's also sad he dies to Bojuka Bog.
Even with all that, tempting to make a deck around him. So tempting.

He's right at home in the Phyrexia Duel Deck! What with all the sacrificing black manaed creatures.

Pretty good in a Madness deck.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
