Wow this card looks to me like it is very playable, mostly because of haste. lifelink is a nice added extra and easy on the wallet too

actually arch bound ravanger is good because if they try to naturilize it or use other removal, you can sac artifacts then sac the ravanger to move the counters, there for making none-wrath of god removal almost useless. not to mention the fact that it's the centerpeice of one of the best decks ever made( in my mind).

Turn 3 Wooly Thoctar, turn 4 Cliffrunner, attack for 10. It's beautiful. The low toughness is unfortunate, but it lowers his mana cost and with some luck you can play him before there are any really threatening blockers on the other side of the table, and if nothing else he should kill his blockers easily enough.

bolt bait... and WORTH USING ANYWAY

Turn 1: Forest, Birds of Paradise
Turn 2: Play trace of abundance on the forest, play Oran-Rief, the Vastwood
Turn 3: Play Forest, Tap Forests and Birds to play Cliffrunner Behemoth, tap Vastwood to put a counter on it and swing.

So it is possible to dodge bolts, searing blazes, and stuff like that within reason. You can always negate paths with Vines of Vastwood.

Want to pick up four copies.

In a world without Bloodbraid elves, this might actually see some tournament play

What happened to 3/3 for 3G?

Nice, yet simple, fatty.

Cerodon Yearling will help. As for everyone saying this is bolt bait, it's a 4 mana creature. If it gets one attack in before it's killed, you've gained 5 life, done 5 damage or killed a creature, and made them use up a card.

At 4 mana and being one of the only life linkers in the game let alone with haste and not having a lame 1 toughness like giant solifuge, ball lightning, and lightning elemental, got to love this creature. Maybe not the most powerful by a long shot, but it can certainly make its way into a competitive deck. It's 3 toughness is to balance out that your getting a 5 power haste lifelinker for 4 mana, which is the same on rakeclaw gargantuan and it's first strike ability.

After testing this guy out he's really amazing, for starters he's only takes 4 mana and only one of that has to be green. He gets his boosts from anything that has white or red and stays on the field, including equipment cards, artifacts, creatures, or planeswalkers. Can use thoctars, trace of abundance, ajani vengeant and so on to get his abilities working. Sneaking in a hasting 5 power lifelinker is a great way to start a turn 3 or 4. It's still a 5/3 even with nothing else in play. If you think about it like i... (see all)

Oooh, bolt bait, lightning rod!1

Who cares? 4 toughness would be better, but, oooh, Paaaath still works. And if he had 4 toughness, you'd all type that all day. ANY creature dies to removal of the right kind. Arcbound Ravager isn't good cause Naturalize exists? You people make me sick sometimes.
