You can cast this card even if there's no damage to prevent, in case you just need another token creature for other purposes.

Think of the possibilities. Big creatures coming your way and you'd have to block and lose most of your creatures. Just declare no blockers, then cast this card and add another token to the fray. All on their turn. Then you swing for a lot.

This one would go in my Talrand, Sky Summoner and Trostani, Selesnya's Voice populate deck.

Another Fog variant, but with some utility. Turbofog with tokens, maybe?

Perhaps one of the best fog variants.
Since it only prevents damage to you, that sadly does not protect your planeswalkers, but it does mean that if you want to block (possibly with that new token you just made) to kill an attacking creature, that option is still open.

Two mana instant speed token. Rated 3.5. I swear, it is like some people have never played this game. You buy a turn against aggro decks, which is a big deal, and there is a bonus effect. Or you read into tokens, and get something crazy. Seance is a thought, GW ramps you into it, while Green itself isn't half bad at graveyard shenanigans.

IMO, populate is strong enough for a rogue deck to surprise take a tournament, people undervalue instant speed creatures.

A girl at the prerelease ran four of these. Her games went really long, but she made a lot of birds.

Quite overlooked on this card is the fact that it says "Prevent all combat damage that would be dealt to you this turn." So you could still block and kill one of their attacking guys while letting a different one through to no avail. And then, of course you can populate.

I love this card and I honestly think it's a solid 4-of in any populate deck, just like Rootborn Defenses. I've lost count of how many times I've caught opponents unprepared for a fog + an extra 3/3 token that counterattacks on my next turn.

They attack with two 4/4's into your two 3/3's? Skip blockers, cast this and hit them back for 9 while their creatures are tapped on their turn.

It's not often that a card comes along that actually has the potential to see play in Pauper. This card, however, may just be it. For the price of a Fog+1 you get a pretty nifty combat trick that may allow you to hurt your opponent and/or destroy some of his creatures, while also, if you have a token available, reinforcing your own army.

You can still eat the attacking creatures with your blockers. Pretty awesome. Forces you to run cookie-cutter cards like Call of the Conclave though. It's not worth doing this for one saproling.
