Well I think he is well costed, mostly because of the word "damage" and not "combat damage" so you can equip it with say a Viridian Longbow and do a pretty good late game lock while getting you an extra card.

Its one of those cards that is really well costed because it can do so much, nowadays it would honestly be cheaper or better, players don't like playing 7 drops that don't do anything right away.

Mindleech Mass provides much the same advantage.
Dimir Cutpurse does it with a lot more speed.
Spiritmonger was from the same set.
After all that, I still kind of like this guy. I just... trust the fungus.

One of the rare wedge cards, in GreenBlueBlack this time. And it captures the intersection of the colors well - trample from Green, card draw from Blue, discard from Black.

Fun with Quicksilver Dagger. Tap him at the end of the opponents draw step: deal 1 damage, draw two cards, opponent discards a card. :)

Giving him double strike is pretty neat too. Since it kills most blockers with int he first strike combat damage step, the lower toughness ain't such a drawback then. Thanks to the trample, the damaeg in the regular combat step won't be wasted, even if the shambler gets blocked. And if it deals more damage then necessary, you draw two cards and make your opponent discard two cards.

Viridian Longbow equipped, with Seedborn Muse in play. Now lock is complete. And you can get combat damage in.

There should be more U/B/G cards.

If this was printed today, it would probably cost 2 less. So sad that it's so expensive, cuz this is a really neat card.

@achilleselbow: I used to think that, but then I realized that actually, in enemy colored cards, they show the main color (i.e. Green) then its two enemies in WhiteBlueBlackRedGreen order (i.e. Blue, then Black)

Seeing as he's called "Fungal Shambler" I really wish he had the Fungusaur ability. Then he would be well worth the cost.

Well balanced for it's casting cost. People tend to think they don't need to pay for a big body these days.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
