Gotta sac a blue critter to it. Great for those old blue monstrousities that required insane sacrifices/mana cost to untap.

Camarid tokens on MTGO are so cuddly looking! And, perhaps, edible looking as well.

Awesome card because it works at instant speed. Also, Artificial Evolution/Xenograft for tribal decks. You could have a Merfolk Spawning Bed, a Bird Spawning Bed, an Illusion Spawning Bed, or whatever other tribe exists in blue.

Don't want to be confined to blue? Shifting Sky, etc.

Or you could just use Coat of Arms or Beastmaster Ascension and beat your opponents down with Camarids. Alternately, Mana Echoes. Suspend (for example) Viscerid Deepwalker, play Homarid Spawning Bed and Mana Echoes, then sacrifice the creature when it comes into play to make five Camarids and 25.

Because it is totally worth the trouble just to be able to say you fueled a game-winning Fireball with Camarids.

P.S. Deep-Sea Kraken gets you 100.

It's not bad for a fallen empires card. Someone wants to kill one of your blue dudes? Sac him in response and get half a dozen tokens. Someone plays a pacifism on one of your guys? Sac him.

Fylamarid + Empress Galina + this. I run this combo in a merfolk EDH deck. I basically just keep people's generals off the field permanently. Steal it, turn it blue, sac it, make tokens, and now their general costs 2 more to play. Toss in Pemmin's Aura and unless their general has shroud or hexproof, they don't stand a chance! Not bad for a 'worthless' Fallen Empires card!

This is an amazing spell, especially with Scornful Egotist, as many have said, but........... why does it make "CAMarids"? Why doesn't it make HOMarids since it is a Homarid Spawning Bed?

For anyone wondering about the creatures being Camarids instead of Homarids, if you read up on the lore, Camarids are baby Homarids.

scornful egotist! I'm sure in blue you can be creative with having a few creatures. Perhaps Shields of Velis Vel and peer pressure?

Fylamarid + Ivory Gargoyle + something to draw...
