This guy can be a beast (pardon the pun) when used with lots of 0 drops and mana excel cards. I know in the past I have overlooked this card, just imagine comboing him with dark ritual(in a G/B deck possibly) and any other cards you can use to boost mana. You may end up geting a whole army of 4/4 beasts as early as turn 4.

Green can ramp mana easily enough, i have a few decks that could cast this by turn 4 or 5. And as an instant, you let an opponent do all they want to prep an attack, play maybe two or three spell if your lucky, and then you drop this on blockers phase and surprise them.

this is junk, there are much better cards you could play with that mana.

Don't forget that it's an instant. You can let your opponent go crazy flooding the board in elves or something, and you can cast this at the end of the turn. Not a bad application of this card.

4/5 for being able to win games by itself.

In beast tribal with a Wirewood Savage or an Aether Charge in play, this becomes a win condition.

Instant + storm is always very good and this is a nice trap to play !

Hilarious in multiplayer if two of your high-brow blue opponents get into a huge counter war. At the end of all that, quietly drop this. And laugh.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
