Unfortunately, Lumberknot came along. Not strictly better better, but given green's pumping affinity, I would rather use that. However, in sac, you are probably going tricolor Jund, so I don't know which you would prefer.

this is from this article on wizards: http://www.wizards.com/Magic/Magazine/Article.aspx?x=mtgcom/daily/rh44

Q: I have a question regarding what happens to token creatures when they are killed. I've seen players use combos of Battle Screech to put Bird tokens into play and Soulcatchers' Aerie to add +1/+1 counters "whenever a Bird is put into your graveyard from play." When a bird token is killed, Magic Online adds a +1/+1 counter to Soulcatchers' Aerie, but obviously the token does not physically exist in the graveyard. Is this a mistake, or does the token legally go to the graveyard before disappearing?

A: Tokens go to the graveyard as regular creatures, and are removed as a "state-based effect" when a player gets priority again. They stay in the graveyard long enough to trigger abilities, like the one of Soulcatchers' Aerie, before they are removed. In casual play, people generally don’t bother putting the token (coin/pie... (see all)

"Whenever another creature is put into a graveyard from the battlefield, you may put a +1/+1 counter on Algae Gharial."

Of course another -_-

Great for a saproling deck. Saproling+Mycoloth and Algae Gharial and you get 2 benifits for the price of one.

with shroud, this guy would go well in my "can't touch this" deck...

my friend plays this with Dragon Broodmother. it got to be a 21/21 that stood up to the onslaught of my 20/19 Eldrazi (Artisan of Kozilek with Soul's Might) It ended in a tie because I had to leave, but this guy is REALLY annoying

This is absolutely amazing with Eldrazi Spawn tokens. It's like Mortician Beetle with shroud. I can see this getting some play until Shards of Alara rotates out.

works awesome with another creature with devour, which is common in jund.

Swampwalk would have made this an excellent sideboard card against black, and fits the flavor perfectly.

All glory to the Shroudigator.
