I has a free, non-tapping regenerate (to combat damage only). This is pretty unheard of.

You can't continue blocking forever though, witch doesn't really matter because if you are blocking forever, you're not doing it right. Despite it's low rating, I would not be surprised if this sees a lot of play.

I think this is really cool. A difficult to kill, efficient creature with an ability that can be abused. Plus, it's called Gloom Surgeon. I mean, that is one of the coolest names I've ever heard!

Oh cool, it's Uncle Istvan's family practitioner. This explains a lot.

Weird synergy with Misthollow Griffin, but I hope it's not a sign of mechanics to-come.

Wish it was any damage instead of combat damage. Risky, but would have a bigger potential.

He's a rockstar in Laboratory Maniac decks. Becomes either an awesome blocker ("Instead of dealing me damage, you're moving me closer to my win condition!") or a 2-power attacker they'd rather not block.

But his will find a home somewhere.

@Redjaron: If he dumped cards into your graveyard instead of exiling them, while he'd maybe not be too overpowered in Standard (which is clearly how you're looking at it), you must realise that he'd definately be overpowered in Modern and Legacy. Just think about it, a creature that can not only block any creature and survive but at the same time create Snapcaster fuel and pump up your Tarmogoyf, seems a little too strong in my opinion. The fact that he dies to removal is a moot point, every creature dies to some form of removal, if they use removal on him they're trading a card for a card.

Another tool in the black/blue selfdeck toolshed. While very limited in use, theres absolutely no reason to criticize an "indestructable" creature who selfdecks into your Laboratory Maniac.
