I heart this card. So hard for my friends to get rid of it once it's on the table.
I am also happy that it came out of the Alara block while still only costing one color of mana.

Elfie: Look at the rules text. You do not have to tap him; why do you think he's so good? If you've got the mana, you can keep all your 5/X's alive through a Day of Judgment - or most removal - or even just combat in general.

THIS + Canopy Cover + Behemoth Sledge = EXTREME

Turn 1: Forest + Llanowar Elves or Birds of Paradise
*Note: both mana producers should be in the same deck*
Turn 2: Khalni Heart Expedition + Forest + Elves/Birds
Turn 3: Explore + 2 Forests, sac KHE for 2 more lands, including a Plains or two.
Turn 4: Forest for 9 mana threshold, Spearbreaker Behemoth + Canopy Cover in the same turn.
Turn 5: Play Behemoth Sledge and equip it to SB. Bash with SB. Keep bashing for great justice.

Strengths: assuming you can make it to turn 5, you will have a 7/7 Indestructible Lifelinking Trampler that cannot be targeted by your opponent's spells or abilities and can only be blocked by flyers and reachers. From turn 5 onwards, your life should be alot easier. Canopy Cover is one of the most important elements here, to protect your SB from Act of Treason/Mind Control/a... (see all)

Yeah, red burn is fun and all until the green guy taps some forests and plays something you have no hope of killing with mere mountains alone. Thank MaRo for Zoo. {T} a Plains, boom! Your dude is exiled with my little instant from Conflux and my little red and green dudes get in there.

Zoo: It's like a green deck, a burn deck, and a white control deck all rolled into one delicious fast food package.

One of the very few cards that I've never even considered removing from my Naya deck. The ability to grant indestructibility to my other creatures is a huge advantage, especially given that my opponents tend to favour Doomblade and the like for creature killing.

Awright, now listen. Iunno if this makes me even more of a nerd than the rest of you, but I personally like to imagine what's happening on the field when I play a spell or combat damage is dealt or whatever. Like blocking a Sun Titan with a Grave Titan.

That said... well... I used Crib Swap on this guy once. Could someone explain to me how in the hell that would go?

it is indestructable, it is a 5/5, and it can make other 5/# indestuctable, really, for 7 mana that is awesome good

This guy and Gigantomancer reeeeeallly want to be friends. If you can't figure out why, I don't know what to tell you.

This guy is uber. That is all.

This card really is insane with vigor, except for exiling your creatures can't be burned, and can't be destroyed with destroy cards. Still got to watch out for a path to exile, but thats what vines of the vastwood or shieldng plax is for.

I'll have you know
That I've become
Determination that is incorruptable
From the other side, a terror to behold
Annihilation will be unavoidable
Every broken enemy will know
That their opponent had to be invincible
Take a last look around while you're still alive
I'm an indestructible master of war!
