Let's light up the mood a little. It's a land that shouts "SURPRIIIIIISSSSEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Block a creature, then morph it. Then tell the opponent that his creature was blocked by a non-creature land.

Anyone see that you can block a big creature with this when its morphed. Pay the morph cost before the damage step and the attack does nothing or watch an opponent try to burn it and do the same thing.

@ Vividice, Devour for Power gets Svogthos, the Restless Tomb, which is a pretty darn solid manland if you are playing it correctly. And by correctly, i mean dredge.

You can also use it for mana acceleration, since casting it morphed doesn't count as your one land a turn. Still, 5 for an extra source of 1 wouldn't be worth much, if that were all it could do.

This works well with Akroma as the only other morph, as it can force them to waste removal on an unknown.

It's pretty good.

-Too many lands? You can have a creature
-Not enough lands? you can have a land
-Block a creature and then save your chump
-Like fatties? It's colorless mana-ramp!
-Safely attacks into players as well. Many morphs have very very disadvantageous effects when blocked; The opponent has to consider that there's a good chance when you swing with a 2/2 that their giant blocker could get eaten.
-Adds to the morph creature count so you can distract kill spells in general (I use it next to Liege of the Pit and/or grinning demon
-can be used to counter a kill spell as well: (I.E.)
"I doom blade your morph"
"*flurp* It's a land!"

Another nice thing is that next to mana-sac thrulls (blood vassal for example) it's very hard to actually kill as you don't need lands open. You can additionally nigh-guaranteed kill spells go for it when your friends know there's a 50-66% chance it's a giant demon about ... (see all)

Very cool land.

This is an underrated card. In draft, I see this as a utility tool. Sure at 5 mana, its an expensive extra land drop, but in a lot of situations, it's 3 colorless for a 2/2 and an additional 2 colorless to prevent damage from a creature for a turn OR to eat a creature removal spell. Late game, I would be happy to draw this guy over a land that only produced mana.
This is a land that can be a creature if youre flooded, or serve as card advantage by taking a lightning bolt or doom blade away from an opponent. There is a reason this land card is in my cube.
