The first pseudo level up card? Would've been wicked if it debuted in Future Sight.

I never liked this card though I played it often. It was frustrating that I never made it an 8/8, but it does make a point. Figure was great because it was the best target in the format. It made opponents spend a card on it that could have been spent on something else.

Purposes this card is great, not overrated.

cheap to play early
cheap-ish to buff to a 4/4
usable late game
excellent sink for unused mana

as for what Gezus82 said,

yes you will want to play your other creatures with abilities, but if there is mana left over, you can pump him up without a draw back.

As for changing creature types, it seems that would be helpful for him, but a waste of a card slot in your deck unless you can utilize that runed stalactite elsewhere in your deck, but still a good idea.

Very useful to have an Amoeboid Changeling out at the same time as when you play it.

Excellent card, but my favorite part is that you can pay 1 mana to revert it to a 2/2 if you need to - those other abilities aren't disabled. I'm not sure when you would, but it's something to think about.

You could use Boldwyr Intimidator to skip to the last level, since it makes it a Warrior.

I think it is funny that you can actually downgrade him. For what purpose? I don't know -- someone will figure something out!

yet another reason to run Braid of Fire

You: "I'll pay 6 mana to make him an 8/8 with flying and first strike. Pass turn."
Opponent: "All righty, that's pretty frightening... Mind Control."
You: "In response, I pay one mana to use his first ability and make him a 2/2. Here you go, bro."

Yeah, I like how the first ability can still be relevant after he's "leveled up".

The first version of the Level Up system? Maybe so. Not complaining either way.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
