He is. All too often I'm on the receiving end of a 20+ first striker. And adding a Whispersilk Cloak to him makes him even worse.

To be honest the only things I've found that can deal with him are those that can kill him outright without having to worry about his first strike. Which is why I love having Tangle Asp available to block him.

@Vishlord: Actually, tokens do count as hitting the graveyard before getting removed.

Ouch. He's the Bane of all saporling decks... I'm surprised the rating isn't at least 4 stars...

@vampire_: fungus decks aren't that good outside of casual. 4 stars imply that he was good in standard or extended at one point. He wasn't.

@ vishlord: actually they do and then are removed immediatly. otherwise there would be no reason for Sek'kuar, Deathkeeper to say "non-token".

Great synergy with Eldrazi spawns. Greater synergy with Eldrazi Spawns and Grave Pact.

Are you sure that isn't Zendikar? (Valakut, Creeping Tar Pit)

Tokens don't hit the graveyard so don't think it would be an issue for Saproling decks - my bad! - ok that learned me, thanks all, he's back in the Vishlord vogue

In a dedicated elemental deck I can see this card being ridiculous.

If he's not dealt with quickly, he becomes a big pain. I like to play him immediately before using removal. ;)

Scarland Thrinax and any of the three creatures that get bigger are best friends.
