I don't see why everyone just says 'Dies to mass removal'

So does Emrakul, The Aeons torn

So does Progenitus.

So does anything that doesn't have Indestructibility.

Now, let us think, logically here. What nice deck do we have...In standard no less, that manages to get the previously mentioned 15/15 turn 2 or so...

Does it happen to be Mono Green Summoning Trap decks ?

To count on an oppenent having one of 4 (Probably not second game, lets not forget Day Of Judgement is being Sideboarded more and more) when this hits the board. Even if it only gets one attack. That is still a smack to the face. And you don't have to animate all your lands. If any at all. Anyone stupid enough to over commit that much when Mass Removal is so high deserves to get spanked.

4/5 for funsies and something to watch. Highly unlikely it will make it anywhere. But I certainly wouldn't mind a summoning Tra... (see all)

If something is unplayable because it can be removed, then Magic is an unplayable game.

Holy balls. I could see this being used with Incandescent Soulstoke to make a Combo/Aggro deck. You just aggro and occasionally you fill the board with 8/8s T3/T4.

It has natural protection from Show and Tell in Legacy by giving you about 32 power if they show in an Emmy or Grisel. Even if they block they get hit by 24 damage. Even 16 should be lethal...

Power/Toughness: 8/8
Makes 8/8s
8 lines of text in the textbox
Number of letters in its name: 16=2*8
There you go, eight "8's"! Lorthos, the Tidemaker can have lime jelly for desert

It's all-in. Sure, the newly minted 8/8 lands are now vulnerable to removal, but that's besides the point when your opponent is staring down a horde of angry Elementals backed by an Overwhelming Stampede.

I am surprised no one has mentioned Terra Eternal. Either that or I need to read the comments more carefully.

Want a 2/2? Easy. You get a ferocious grizzly bear with white runes that glow ever so subtly as it tears you to shreds.

How about a 4/3, for a little more of that green muscle? Sure! You get an incarnation of Nature's fury, built from the ground up with nothing but cruel vines, tough thorns, and, in a sick twist of humour, all of his friends, too.

Not enough? You want a 6/6, you say. No problem. I give you a stampede of baloths, all hooves, claws, horns, tusks... you name it, they'll pound you with it. Show 'em a new brawling pit, and they'll round up their 4/4 cousins, just chompin' at the bits.

But if all this really, really just doesn't cut it, then I've got just the thing for you. Coming in with a spectacular 8/8 body...

You get lime jelly. And the best part? It makes more lime jelly.

What I've learned from these comments:
This card is apparently unplayable, because even if your opponent is playing mono-black, they will hit you with a Day of Judgement or Wrath of God and destroy all your lands. Makes sense.

An 8/8 trampler for 8 that makes 8/8, dammit Wizards . . .
