As a common this seems like a rather solid card and a cool bridge between black and green deathtouchers.

Really too bad that this is tied for the second cheapest Scavenge in the set. We really would have appreciated some kind of cheap 1-power utility creature with some ability ability and Scavenge Black or something

Another welcome addition to the M:TG scorpion family!

This is really quite decent. Scavenge is a natural fit with Deathtouch since it's usually used to block trade.

In my opinion, this card is underrated. Fairly cheap ground blocker which makes the opponent think twice about attacking just because of deathtouch, but makes them think even more due to scavenge. "Oh, you can swing, I'll kill your creature and mine, then buff my striker by 2 ;)"

Surprised they have yet to make a chunky or a rare scorpion. One with first strike and deathtouch. And lasers.

This guy is a 4/5 from me. Solid card.
I had 4 of these in my Golgari Scavenge deck, and I removed one only so I could sub in Deadbridge Goliath, and even then I'm still hesitant about subbing any more out.
This guy is a 2/2 deathtoucher for CMC 4. In a pinch, he's a great blocker against a big nasty, and I NEVER feel bad about losing him because his scavenge cost is less than his casting cost... so he can go straight onto my Lotleth troll, who is the real powerhouse of the deck.
He's one of the few scavenge cards with a cheap mana cost scavenge for his power. Most other cards with power 2+ cost 5 to scavenge.

This is a card with fantastic synergy, which is good to keep in mind.

I'm thinking this will be one of the better uncommons in the set, it'll trade for anything that doesn't fly, and you're almost guaranteed to have enough mana to scavenge this on a later turn.

It also has a nice synergy with Grisly Salvage (common), Jarad's Orders and Lotleth Troll which may give you the option to scavenge without losing card advantage. In limited this will surely create some powerful decks.

I'm worried that Scavenge isn't going to work. Please prove me wrong people.

@LotsOfPoopy: With all this hating going around about you, I feel as though I should step in and say that I appreciate your funny comments, even though you may or may not really be a pro.
