With khalni garden from worldwake, you can bounce your 0/1 plant token for no tempo loss, and a 5/6 for 3 mana.

This is of course also ignoring other cards you probably won't mind reusing such as coiling oracle.

Coiling Oracle just met his new best friend :)

Just choose a token, which vanishes. Then you don't waste the draw, if you do lose tempo.

Love this card. Sometimes it backfires tho. Is really great if you can get it out within the first three turns of the game or like ZEvilMustache said, with a card like Coiling Oracle that has a triggered ability when played, especially cascade like Mode said. He's great with any creature that has graft like Aquastrand Spider(graft 2), which could be played on turn two and then play the gargantuan on turn three, turn it into a 7/8, and recycle the spider onto the top of your library for the next gargantuan to use. :D

Amazing card - especially in a set using the Cascade ability.
And there are still a lot of other things you can do with this card - triggering cip-effects a second time (see ZEvilMustache's comment), put your opponent's creature on top of his library with cards like Dominus of Fealty, etc...
I guess both Johnny and Timmy love that card :D

Actually only thing that doesn't work on cadenblades scenario is putting those 2 counter on gargantuan as graft only lets you move 1 every time another enter bf.

A fun card that I can see both casual and tournament level players employing. The easiest way to get him out is with Birds or Hierarch on turn 1. If you can get him to stick, he's quite a beating. While Terminate or Terror is a good answer, Path to Exile's extra land somewhat compensates the tempo loss of returning a creature and losing this beast.

This Beast Rocks. I dont mind one bit the bounce back a creature on top of my library at all, since i have Elvish Visionary, Coiling Oracle, Wistful Selkie in my deck. Favor Of The Overbeing on this beast beats hard, and if you want to really make your opponent suffer put Shielding Plax and Favor Of The Overbeing on Nulltread Gargantuan. All though I personally like to put this auras on Lorescale Coatl.

cadenblade in your scenario the 0/0 spider would die instantly due to having 0 strength killing the creature as a state-based condition, and after that you would have to return the beast to your hand if it's the only creature under your control at that time.

And yes, this dude rocks. Play it on turn 2, return Llanowar Elves to your hand. Turn 3 play land, put Shielding Plax on beast and start wailing on your opponent.

Can also let you re-use a creature for where ancients tread. Everyone seems to love cascade these days.
