The main piece of a tribal wizard deck.

I'd call it a staple card for tribal decks. It gives a Wizard-deck some amazing control.
He will slow down your opponents with just a couple of wizards notably.
If you get Azami, Lady of Scrolls on the board you can mindlessly get card advantage equal to the remaining amount of untapped wizards you control at end of your opponent's turn if he/she is outtapped.

The cool part is, you can play him on turn 3 or 4 relatively safely, because he can tap himself to Daze a spell.

This guy is insanity. Dropping this guy on turn three when I usually have a Sage of Epityr out from the first turn and he slows down the game until I eventually stop the opponent.

One of my favorite cards of all time. In a Wizard deck this is practically the ultimate control card. As for
Volcanic Fallout, you can always Meddling Mage it. Turn two Mage, turn three Patron and you're pretty much good.

I hope they reprint this at some point. I'll immediately make a Standard and an Extended deck around it. :D

I think it would be a nice combo with Lullmage Mentor, also if you have say.. a conspiracy on the field calling wizards, it would be very nice indeed

I think auriscope was making fun of you.

What you said, is pretty dumb, I know that people may underestimate how hard or easy it is to play a deck, but each color, and each deck has different things that are hard and easy.

My main deck is a Time Spiral Standard Fungus deck. I swarm people, and all my creatures are very cost efficient. Saying that my deck is skill-less means you haven't used it before (you may not think that), it take a lot of thought and focus to spend Saprolings as a smart invesment, I use too many, I die, I use too little, I die.

Annilator 6 is only on Emrakul, the Aeons Torn and he costs 15 FREAKING MANA! Its a skill to get that much mana out, or make a deck that gets it out and kills you with it before you kill it. Make a better deck.

Counter unless you play one? Sounds like he swarmed you with one of the MANY wizard swarming token cards. MAKE A BETTER DECK! He has to keep track of his 'saprolings' too, tap too many, and he's ope... (see all)

The best way to teach is to make all your students disruptive.
