Don't get too obsessed with the cost. The cards best advantage is that many permanents can be made out of it but it only uses up one card slot.

@sares321
Well, no one else seems to be answering this question, and I personally know several people who use this card wrong, so I'm going to make a nice convenient post stating how this card works, because it's not always immediately apparent.

Think of the mana cost here as a mathematical formula. CMC = X + X + 1. In these situations, the single variable, X, has to be one number, because X must equal X. Therefore, when you cast this card, you figure out what you want X to be, then you pay twice that amount along with an additional green, then this card goes on to the stack. If it resolves, you get ooze tokens equal to the amount you decided X to be, and they each have power and toughness equal to that number.

You cannot pay two different amounts of X to cast this card. You can't make, say, eight 1/1 Ooze tokens by paying 9G then drop a free Khalni Hydra. Math does not work this way.

Ooze token producer! Yes! Going to make a g/u/b deck with creeping tar pit, awakening zone, and this card. Awesome for no other reason that pure fun.

Despite what all the naysayers are saying, its still good at low mana, and in the current environment can still pretty easily get lots of mana to play it for more since the eldrazi taken around 10 and up too.

With Omnath, Locus of Mana or Mana Reflection, you can easily put 9 9/9 creatures on the battlefield at once. Definitely cool.

Has anyone considered or tried using Artificial Evolution with this card? I can see a benefit to getting 3 3/3 elves for eight mana.

It's just so fun to say.

Was watching a game where two newer players were borrowing my EDH decks, one with Jhoira and one with Omnath. The Omnath deck went like this:

Turn 1: Forest, Llanowar Elf
Turn 2: Forest, then he shows me this card and Channel, and asks "does this work?"
...Genesis for 15x 15/15 ooze tokens
Turn 3: WTFBBQ

Fastest EDH game winner I've yet seen. 5/5 for the very possible shenanigans.

Definitely a great scaling card. 3 mana gets you a 1/1 (scoffable), 5 mana gets you 2 2/2s (just below the curve), 7 mana gets you 3 3/3s (definitely above the curve) and more is even better.
