Proliferate, Graft, loads of fun to be had. Flavorfully, this is a clockwork creature that you get to crank up!

This + Clock of Omens, fun times.

"where on the card did it say it was destroying anything? i dont think that you actually read the card. and where are you getting defender from? he's awesome." bluntshark

He's referring to the fact that if you want it to grow into anything worthwhile, you have to use up a land on it every turn. Thus it's like a stone rain because to get the most out of it properly, you have to throw away one mana every turn to it. The defender bit is referring to the fact that to continue growing it you also have to not attack with it so for a while you can only use it as a blocker.

I don't agree with that completely. True it eats up mana but it's a blocker that will always be ahead of the curve. Barring haste creatures, more often than not, when a 2/2 would be attacking you, it's a 3/3, when a 3/3, it's a 4/4, etc. And you may use it defensively for a while but it is not forced to be defender. You can attack with it when you're ready. And losing one mana isn't a big deal in my opinion. You can build... (see all)

This card has a very creepy Uncharted Realms story behind it.

Seriously, check it out if you can.

This card isn't supposed to be some super fast super powered aggression (it's not). Think of it as similar to Slumbering Dragon, except this card can attack/block in a pinch, albeit interupting its growth. Spend your unused mana on it (if any), but don't go out of your way to beef it up. Not a bad investment at all for 1, especially if it gets big enough to warrant a removal.
Won't see play in competetive decks, but a solid little card nonetheless.

I think that card will have amazing potential. It reminds me of Steel Overseer.

Great target for Trinket Mage.

I don't even care if I'm wrong, I love this card.

This guy is great in M13 sealed and draft, where there isn't a lot of stable removal. He's especially nice because of all the exalted creatures in the format. He can stay behind and defend with his activated ability and buff himself up while creatures like Aven Squire go on the offensive.

Yes, it eats a mana, but it is colorless and there is nothing to say you have to use that mana during your turn or at all. So, it's a one colorless mana 1/1 creature with lots of upside potential. Activate the ability durting your opponent's end step with any open mana you happen to have. He's a Golem too. So Blade Splicer will give him first strike. Not like that's being used in any decks at the moment. Love the backstory, the flavor and the art. It's not a powerhouse, but it will find a home in some Standard decks for sure, especially until the Scars of Mirrodin block rotates.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
