Good by itself. With Graft? Death from above imminent

Bred out the shortcomings of the species' natural form indeed...

Unfortunately it lost 2 points of power and toughness.

I think most of the love this card gets comes from being from Dissension (a set which everyone unarguably likes) and from the Simic guild. It's not so amusing from a gameplay viewpoint, unless you're playing it with Momir Vig. 6/6 shroud is boring.
Possible replacements: Kalonian Behemoth (no flying, but it's a 9/9), Sphinx of Jwar Isle (cute and somewhat useful ability).

I maintain that Sky Swallower Mark 1 is only around to make this thing look good and for flavour reasons. "Hey guys, remember that leviathan nobody played from a set or two ago? Look what the Simic did to it! Who wants to play it now?" "MEMEMEMEMEMEME!"

What? A decent Leviathan that nobody has looked at..

(After some searching, I find 91 comments on the other printing.)

I understand now, it's because not many people have noticed the Commander set. And seeing as I've just found it tonight, it doesn't surprise me.

Could use a new art...the latest leviathans all look sick, why not this one ?

Usable flyer 4.5/5

This is a card that I get the feeling that I'm supposed to be afraid of, but it's just never done anything dramatic whenever I've faced off against it.

Flying and trample is nice, but there's some redundancy there. More importantly, this creature has shroud instead of hexproof, which means, for the most part, the worst this thing will be is a 6/6 flying trampler. For 7 mana, I just can't seem to be impressed whenever it manages to hit the table.

Though, with cards like Murkfiend Liege, which make this an 8/8 flying trampler shroud with pseudo-vigilance, I understand that one day, this guy might actually make me understand why I'm supposed to be afraid of it.

The only reason I don't like this card as much as I should is when I play it, I have to say:
"I play Ssssssssssssimic Ssssssssky Ssssssswollower."
It's just a mouthful that I must make sure to promounce properly.
4.5, especially when Riku makes two.
