tough card, cheap and not too hard to build around, I can see why people like this, and I can see why peopole would hate this...

I see the first effect as really really good in most cases, especially fighting off a mill condition, hell you could even mill yourself and rearrange your deck. make a draw and discard deck or something

I do really like this card

This, as well as Battlefield Scrounger, are absolutely amazing cards in EDH. You can burn through spells as fast as you want and keep putting them back into your library. Especially handy when you have a reliable source of shuffling such as Journeyer's Kite.

6/8 for 5 should really be 'nuff said', but he also ensures you can never be milled while he's on the table, and 6 unblockable damage? Killer in a mongrel deck, although those have usually won by turn 5 which explains why this guy never saw any play.

Remember kids, discarding cards was good in the Odyssey block!

Poor man's Thorn Elemental?
This is 6/8 for 5 cmc. This can beat BANESLAYER for all the noobs that comment dies to Bullsh#t to all creature cards. This card has decent discard ability which helped with madness, and putting 2 cards to bottom of the library from graveyard is not huge cost especially if you are running madness deck. Unfortunately, Wild Mongrel was faster than this guy and therefore more favored.

you all missed the entire point of this card.

I got as far as the name, and then I stopped reading. 5/5.

On first look, I thought it sucked. Second glance, I realized something. His abillity occurs at the beginning of your upkeep, so you can return ANY card from your graveyard before you draw to the bottom of your library. As long as you have cards in your graveyard, you can never mill yourself on your draw. His other abillity gives this 6/8 unblockable damage (C'mon Wizards! NAME THIS ABILLTY!) for 2 green and discard a card, helping activate his upkeep condition. Combo this with a beast deck using wirewood savage, ravenous baloth and rampaging baloth; you get an infinite supply of sac beast: gain 4 life for your graveyard that go back into your deck while you're drawing buttloads of cards with wirewood savage beast combo. Thats a green win condition if I've ever heard one.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
