I was playing then and this would not have been considered a good card. By then green creatures were already becoming stronger, and Stampeding Wildebeests filled the same niche this card did with a lesser drawback and better combo potential.
Glad everyone caught the pun though.

Oh man. An Allan Sherman reference? My Grandfather had those albums. Aren't they from the sixties?? How old are you?!

I wouldn't wonder if the grass rose out of the artwork borders, because this artworks looks like it would belong to a card from the Un-sets. At least the ape in the middle crossing his arms gives this card a rather funny appearance.

I put this up to see how old MAGIC players are :3 Recognize it, anyone?

I'll sing to you a story of a great man of the cloth,
His name was Harry Lewis and he worked for Irving Roth,
He died while cutting velvet on a hot July the fourth,
His cloth goes marching on.

Glory, glory, Harry Lewis,
Glory, glory Harry Lewis,
Glory, glory, Harry Lewis,
His cloth goes shining on!

Harry Lewis perished in the service of his lord,
He was trampling through the warehouse where the drapes of Roth are stored,
He had the finest funeral his union could afford,
His cloth goes shining on!

The name is a pun of the Grapes of Wrath, obviously. It belongs to a long-forgotten era in which the best green creature in the game was Ernham Djinn, and as green went from a joke color to playable, merely efficient creatures such these stopped wasting rare slots, and nowadays you'll open uncastable monsters that cost 12 mana instead.

Even given "the times" I don't think I'd run this card. Sure its a 5/4 for 4...but for 4 back "in the day" you could just get a 3/3 and swing twice (doing, effectively, more damage than this creature). I guess this works better for things like "Fling" but with cards like Erhnam Djinn, Elvish War Hounds and Autumn Willow being played back in the day...this card just doesn't make the cut. Perhaps if you had some odd "apes" deck or ... green stasis? Yeah I don't get it either.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
