Aura Gnarlid is Champion of Lambholt's favourite pet.

Or... well, maybe its her brother, turned into a... beast? Aww, F**k it.

Play this on turn two with the help of a Llanowar Elf or something of the like. If you play another land on the third turn, you can give this guy both a Rancor and a Ancestral Mask. Attack with a 8/6 Trample on the thrid turn. Kablam. And don't get me started on the fourth turn.

@Pastilli: that's my aura deck, except that I use Utopia Sprawl rather than Elves.

Oh, and I found out that casting Rancor on this cutie is the MtG equivalent of feeding your Mogwai after midnight. If you didn't get it, go see Gremlins (the 80's movie) right now.

Aura Gnarlid don't care. Aura Gnarlid don't give a f***. Aura Gnarlid will take your Rancor and use it to beat face.

I had a slow start one game.
Then turn 3 this came out.
Turn 4: Rancor, Bear Umbra.

Opponent :o

This thing can be very dangerous in a correct deck. Example of a game with my friend:

He plays:
T1: Forest, Llanowar Elves
T2: Forest, Aura Gnarlid
T3: 3x Rancor enchanting Aura Gnarlid

So my friend attacked me on turn 3 with a 11/5 creature, which was of course unblockable since I didn't have any creature with power of 11 or more - how could I, getting a creature that huge on third turn is not so easy. Without removal at the time I lost on turn 4.

This card is extremely useful for my Aura forest deck, (30 card deck I made with my friend) and it's a very good one if you make an Aura deck. I got it up to 11/11 with Wreath of Geists and Savage Silhouette. EPIC! :D

Lol, greediest thing you could do is slap this in some weird 4-colr deck with Elder Mastery
