Two Dakkon Blackblades, you say? They're even in the same color. Might even be worth making into a casual EDH deck.

... no they didnt.
First sentence says he comes in as a 3/3

A decent creature, 3/3 for 4 is always decent, and its ability allows it to shrink and grow at your whim...

Hail from Tolaria the 'Dane that slew Emrakul!!!!

I wouldn't say it's been "reprinted", they've got quite different effects. Cryptoplasm becomes a copy of the entire creature, which is -much- different to simply copying power and toughness. For example, Cryptoplasm would make a much better Reiver Demon copy than this, -but-, you'd be better off with Halfdane when there's something like Taniwha on your side, or a lot of Leviathans. I'd rather have a Cryptoplasm, but Halfdane fills a pretty good niche, avoids the draw backs of Timmys.

Interesting that he comes from Tolaria, at least from a storyline perspective. I don't remember him ever being mentioned in the Urza novels. Seems like this would have been a perfect time to retcon him into the storyline as either a native inhabitant of Tolaria before Urza came along, or maybe an ally/enemy of the Academy.
A fun and interesting effect, has been reprinted and better as Cryptoplasm.

3/3 for 4 is already above curve for Legends, plus its a Clone. now THAT'S a Legend.

they had to errata in a starting P/T for this. 3/3, could have been worse.

3/3 for 4 is crap today, but it was quite strong for its time. The ability can be okay for casual. Aura up another creature and have two fatties instead of 1.
