@weretarrasque, legends had a bunch of cards that were awesome. moat, mana drain, urborg, pendelhaven, tabernacle at pendrell vale, nether void, the abyss, gwendlyn di corci, tetsuo umezawa... etc. so there.

this card rules and has that amazing artwork by my fav. magic artist, rk ferguson. he gives you a huge advantage when you're playing against someone using black, but even when you're not, he's still playable. he's at least a 4... i'd like to vote for him as a 4.5 because i think he's at least on-par with serra angel or mishra's factory or something like that. he doesn't exactly win you the game outright, but could get you pretty close.

In a time when most legends were overpriced and impractical creatures with limited abilities, here comes a guy who is simultaneously reasonably priced (5 for a 5/5), with a form of evasion, a relevant ability in the form of a free Demon's Horn strapped on his back, and even a Nicol Bolas colors, making him immune to Terror and most other black removal. An excellent beater even now.

Old-school efficiency. Still playable.

Still the bomb after all these years.

One of the few really good legends from Legends.
5/5 for 5 mana is fine. Swampwalk is nice too, and gaining life (without having to pay mana or something) is great in black decks as well. Also the color combination of this guy is great for control deck, making this a good finisher.
Incredible general in EDH as well.

Oh, wait. No, it's just Demon's Horn with swampwalking legs. At least he's 5/5 for 5, that makes him one of the best Legends cards.

I wouldn't want to get beat in the face by his club, it looks like it's covered in germs, and if it breaks the skin, could cause a nasty infection...

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
