Nowadays, blue has better options for size and for mana cost, but not for art.

Use him with Power Conduit, your opponent won't be laughing so much when it gets +1/+1 each turn

A great reanimation target for its time since the upkeep, while annoying, could be maintained long enough to smash an opponent's face in. Admittedly, this big fella dies to Terror, Swords, and other such removal, but he still puts opponents on a short clock if he comes out early. Surpassed by modern creature design, but probably one of the most playable of the early huge blue creatures. Oh, and November 11, 2011 is Polar Kraken Day! Or, at least it should be, if Magic had official holidays.

Surely one of the best arworks ever.

Indestructible, uncounterable, untargetable, protection from everything and other abilities with no drawbacks are for cowards! Real men pay upkeeps!

Since no one else has the nerve to say it, how long does an 11/11 trampler really need to be in play normally?

Yeah, once you get this guy out, you basically have 11 lands to play with (using only lands to cast this guy). So by the time the cumulative upkeep would be an issue, you've most likely won the game.

But yes, as many others have mentioned, definitely outdated. But it still brings back fond memories for me.

I love this guy too. Started playing during Ice Age and laughed when I pulled him. Still have the deck that I made with him though, and it still works relatively well.
