'THIS CARD IS HORRIBLE, EXCEPT FOR ALL THE GAMES IT WON ME IN LIMITED'

Limited is an actual format, folks, and this card is nuts in it.

People who are hating this card - keep in mind that some of the top decks in the competitive scene right now are token-based. This card DOES count your tokens, too. If you can constantly get out a high number of tokens, this is a good card.

Combo with Boundless Realms...?

This card is very boring. In constructed formats it's not likely to work, and in a slow limited format it can be used as a very slow stall. I played a deck with this card at the prerelease, and killed enough creatures that my opponent simply couldn't win the game. Eventually my opponent decked me by using Void Stalker on his own creatures a few times.

For Johnny, Combo Player, you could play this with Paradox Haze, Kaervek's Spite, Academy Rector, and a Near-Death Experience somewhere in the library for a glorious victory. Practically speaking, the card is bad.

I agree that this card is bad in nearly every way, however, during the prerelease it was an insurmountable obstacle and won me many a game.

The wording is interesting to me. Is there a rules reason why it wasn't printed as "At the beginning of your upkeep, your life total becomes equal to the number of permanents you control"? It seems that's how it would have been written on most other cards, and wouldn't have resulted in the instruction to count, which sounds silly to me because it'd be implied otherwise.

"You'll never stop me and my life total at a whopping EIGHT!!!"

Your upkeep comes, ability from this goes on the stack.
In response, opponent casts Quicken + Worldfire.

You better control a lot of permanents or else you'll be wishing you'd used that seven mana on something more useful.
