Oh, this card is horrible. And I kept pulling it out of the rare slot in Alliances boosters. Ick. Obviously printed as a means of giving green some form of direct damage (it had none at the time), but its drawback crippled it.
Should only ever be played next to Humility.

Pretty bad in and of itself(though with the size of most green creatures and life gain so available in green(esp. Green/White, for both points), I can honestly say the downside isn't horrid, just too much for such a small effect. Definitely has potential though, with cards like Vigor or Fungasaur. Last point, it's better if you stop looking at the C. upkeep as a cost and more as a way to kill off the tokens without a Sac outlet.

a negetive ability and com. upkeep!! wile the abilitys in able it to be breakable. (for example this one artifact doll that diverts damage delt to it to other creatrues or players, but they don't have to be you or you creatures. ) it is not worth how bad it makes it when it's alone

@ChampionofSquee: Giving this away would do nothing, as the card does nothing unless it is activated. So you would just be wasting a card slot to give your opponent a card he can ignore.

This could be decent with a Stuffy Doll attached with Pariah on the field.

3 mana to ping Stuffy for 1 and make a token. Don't worry about paying the upkeep. When that token dies, 1 damage to you and 1 to Stuffy, pariah means 2 damage to Stuffy, which means 2 more damage to your opponent!

See, 3 damage for 3 mana! No way any card could beat that with Stuffy/Pariah......o hai that Pyrohemia

Oracle text is functionally different from printed text; there's no reason why errata should kill the Bazaar Trader trick.

Lashknife Barrier or Mark of Asylum might help a bit.

3 mana and a iife to ping one guy and throw a token in front of an attacker.

Maybe Mirari's Wake?

What a strange card.. I guess its useful for providing blockers and picking off weenies. It would get a lower rating if it wasn't GREEN, of all colours.

it really doesn't need C. upkeep AND an effect to hurt you
