Nice card, but I think it needs a little something...
like a Stormtide Leviathan

Arguably the best Sea Serpent ever printed. Although that isn't saying much. Still, this guy is a house in limited.

It's better than Sea Serpent for one more {U}.

Like a number of other cards in this set, it's asking the player to focus on mono-color decks to make it useful.

Not really, this guy counts your opponent's islands, too.

Most sea serpents like mono-colored. So? Hello, they are SEA serpents.
This isn't that bad, especially since if you are running this and you aren't an idiot, you'll be running Spreading Seas, Convincing Mirage, and maybe Lingering Mirage, Sea's Claim, and Stormtide Leviathan.

And it makes sense that serpent creatures would be unblockable when you're opponent controls islands. They live in the sea. Dur dur dur. Don't whine about it being "color self-hosing," when hello, its in the color with land-control.

Don't know why so many ass underestimate this serpent before seeing it's effect in play. For Blue, 6 CMC for 5/5 is good (although you need 5 Islands to attack), and with Islandwalk, the bonus here is the beat down. M11 only has been released recently, so I hope you all don't forget the usefulness of Spreading Seas.

For everybody who thinks this card sucks...how many other 5/5 landwalkers are out there? And if you're playing monoblue, you just negated its drawback by having the mana to cast it. It's definitely playable. Hell, Serpent of the Endless Sea was playable. This is actually good.

For me, this was and is a great finisher. I tend to play budget and at a FNM level. and I found this guy to be a beast at my local Shop.
