This card in an elf/beast deck with timberwatch elf has been the death of me countless times

Baconradar: It's actually not as bad as you make it out to be. Remember that this is green, and removal is (and should be) scarce. This is a very good facimille of removal (repeatable, at that), so I'd take value in that. Otherwise, mono-green has no other way of dealing with pesky utility creatures. Well, unless they fly.

Provoke isn't exactly clunky here, either. It means that if your opponent wants to kill him via blocking, he better be prepared to lose the creature you throw in front of it as well (ie, attacking into a 3/3 and 2/2- you provoke the 2/2, forcing him to use his other creature if he wants to get rid of this thing). The (very valid) problem I think you have is his relative fragility. I hear you. But remember he was printed in a block full of creatures- Onslaught block was a tribal block, which meant lots of Lords and piddly utility creatures for him to trample over. That was and is is function. And he's good at it.

He begs to be run with creature pump to make the ... (see all)

provoke is a powerful, fun, flavorful ability. I wouldn't mind seeing it reprinted.

This is a slow removal spell at worst. At best, a win condition. Good example of how powerful Provoke is.

As a 'removal spel', it's only repeatable if it targets creatures of half to a third it's own CMC. By the time you're able to start attacking with Brontotherium, the small creatures it can stomp on are most likely not your first priority to deal with, anyway.

You should expect more from a six-mana creature; Visara the Dreadful was printed in the same block.

I'm surprised by the high rating on this card - it doesn't seem very good to me. The provoke is a pretty clunky way of dealing with something and the power level of the creature itself is quite low. At 5 CMC it would have been a lot better.

Edit: Not sure why my comment is getting a hate rating, I'm not saying the card is bad. I rated it 3.0 myself - a perfectly acceptable beast, it's just that it's expensive and fragile. Its rating has dropped a bit since I originally commented, back then it was at 4/5 which I still think was too high.
