I went crazy when I first saw this card.

And then I realized that it didn't have infect.

Good blocker, or i guess alternate wincon. attack a couple times with this guy and they will have to start pitching creatures to him. he doesnt win by himself, but he keeps the pressure on them.

I'll put this in an infect deck to... trim down their life total? It doesn't make any sense... This card's only saving grace is its mana cost.

Phyresis or Grafted Exoskeleton?

Although, as stated you wouldn't want to put this in a non-infect deck...
But maybe in edh when there is other people playing infect?

odd, but maybe it will find its place in a deck.

It's been said: it needs infect.
But he'd be so overpowered otherwise.
Just give him infect with any of the various ways this block's given,
Which shouldn't be too hard,
And you have one hell of a creature.

I guess this can make for a very solid wall for infect decks. Sadly, when you want to run infect you don't end up running non infect creatures...

I love this card mainly for its flavor. But imagine what happens when I give infect. Oh noes

I know wizards deliberately made this card w/o infect to encourage hybrid cards, but honestly I would feel too conflicted playing this in an infect deck, you just have to be so dedicated. Ofc this could give you incentive to play cards like Phyresis or Tainted Strike but I think really you'd just want to take a more effective infect creature over anything w/o infect, slows down the whole process lol

You don't need to focus on infect to make it big. Pistus Strike, Virulent Wound, and Decimator Web pump it up just fine while also doing other things you'd want to do in any deck anyway.
Also those creatures that can gain infect temporarily like Vector Asp and Pestilent Souleater.
And then those non-Phyrexian cards that deal with poison, like Snake Cult Initiation.
Punishment for your opponent's Ichor Rats, I don't know...

Pretty good alternate kill switch for infect decks.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
