This little guy has an evil twin in Blister Beetle!

Could be a nice addition for a Bant deck with a Venser plopped in there.

I like the strategy mentioned by Gauss, primarily because it's blue green.

In addition to bouncing the guy, having some sort of creature or enchantment with a drawback to return creatures to your hand would be good. A really pointless one would be something like Trusted Advisor and using something like Cerulean Wisps, Sleight of Mind, or Painter's Servant to make it possible to bounce the beetle back to your hand.

With these free counters, he could also work well for a Modular deck and has some potential combos with the old mirrodin set or Shadowmoor/Eventide/Morningtide.

I would absolutely love to see something like this in an Insect tribal, especially with the mention of Blister Beetle. Could definitely work great with the insect horrors of M11 and Mirrodin. Another awesome thing would be Green Blue Ravnica and those silly tech elves.

Playable, and can be a nice little boost in the late game. He also makes a great target for bounce spells, since he buffs every time he lands. A really nice card for Blue/Green combo decks, hit him with Unsummon a couple of times and give your Living Tsunami some bite.

Decent sacrifice in a deck with Shirei. But then so is Abyssal Gatekeeper.

Functional reprint in Timberland Guide, with more relevant typing. Which is a pity, since Insects are cool. I'd play either of them over standard bears - you can give that +1/+1 counter to your big beater if you draw the beetle late in the game. Run with Swarmyard!

Bond Beetle's cousin.

A good card. Can be used to replace Grizzly Bears in a deck since it is more flexible.

Flicker + this + graft? I guess? It's neat that it's on the curve with a backwards graft ability

Its a grizzly bear with a few tricks up his sleeve.
