Too bad this wasn't printed in New Phyrexia with a Phyrexian Black activation cost.

One of the few 1 drop creatures with a poison counter mechanic, I needed this!

I feel that this guys ability could somehow be used to tricked your opponent but I cant think of anyway that would do this effectivly, other than possibly prevent them from attacking with this guy untapped and a black mana open, but that idea is just stupid. other than that, hes decent because hes the only 1 drop with infect (in some form) and can be sacked for Throne of Geth

In my opinion, this creature was created primarily to give necrotic ooze a purpose in limited/sealed infect decks. It is also the only infect creature cheaper than two mana, at the cost of not triggering Hand of the Praetor's second effect.

After he has outlived his usefulness, sac him with throne of geth for even more poison-y goodness.

I don't like it that much. Why? In short: he is onl good in an infect deck, if you draw him early, and if you keep activating his ability early on. And paying one mana each turn early on basically sets you back a full turn, for a single poison counter each turn. And that is if your opponent doesn't just block or kill it.

Sorry this card's pretty good guys. You can turn him into a 5/5 with Tezz and swing for poison or regular damage - it's your choice. Very smart design choice by Wizards.

This is like the black inverse of Llanowar Elves, with infect. Always gonna be worth it, especially when you can suprise buff with Hand of the Praetors ;)

One of the few overvalued cards. Not really a good card under any circumstances. Look at memnite, then look at http://www.wizards.com/Magic/Magazine/Article.aspx?x=mtg/daily/ld/111. There's an interesting tidbit the shows that THIS CARD SUCKS!!!!!!

Only way to swing poison on turn 2, and makes good Throne fuel. I like it.

This card does indeed suck asp, but I'm still putting it in my Fauna Shaman/Necrotic Ooze deck for surprise value.
