it IS swimming

Annoying art (since it looks like it should be flying but isn't). I think it may pick up a few points with Scars out, since returning to the hand gets rid of -1/-1 counters, and it's bigger than almost everything with infect (except Putrefax and Skitty).

It's not bad. If you have enough artifacts, a 4/5 flying blocker each turn for U or a 4/5 flying attacker every other for U isn't anything to scoff at.

I always thought it was swimming. Not a good card.

When I saw the bounce effect, I cried. I suppose you can blink it with Venser to negate the effect or just play it a second time after combat or during your turn for(hopefully) one blue mana?

Still, the need for 6 artifacts to reduce it completely is a tad hefty but with ornithopters and memnites, one can get this out pretty early. In a very unrealistic hand, 6 0 costs and 1 island for a Behemoth next turn is... possible but not very likely.

I dunno, offensive blue creatures makes me all giddy.

Azorius AEthermage? Teferi's Veil? Pandemonium? Minion Reflector? Soultether Golem? Genesis Chamber? I'm trying, here.

And if you're replaying it every turn, it can both attack and block every turn.

This guy is terrible. There is really no way around it. Even inside he own set let alone block he was pretty bad. He's not unplayable, just by the time you could do anything with him, there's a million other things you could spend that mana on.

Usually he just ends up getting played when you have nothing better to do on your turn and both you and your opponent are running out of steam.

Easy. Aether Charge. Voila, good card suddenly.

I think if it had flash and/or flying it would be much more playable.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
