I can understand the lure of wanting a flowstone guy who you only have to pay 1 to get +2/-2 instead of the normal +1/-1. Well...actually no I can't. +1/-1 is much more versatile and therefore worth the extra mana. This guy works well with creature enchantments that up its defense (effectively upping its attack as well), but ultimately its a 5/1 or 3/3 for FOUR with no keywords aside from the ability to choose those two "modes". Not worth it. 2/5.

I enjoy when the flavour text from cards somewhat describes the mechanics of the card. Strictly better than Hill Giant...unless an opponent Mindslavers you and then activates his own ability twice to kill himself...generally speaking, better than Hill Giant though.

This is in fact one of my favorite creature back in the days. Next turn enchant Giant Strength for a 5/5 that would hit for 9 if unblocked and unanswered, for four red mana. It usually forced my opponent to answer it when it hits the table or not tapping out when this is on the field because of all the crap I can unleash with this guy. Not bad at all.

Even better when I have a Battle Rampart on the field. Once in a while my enemy tapped out when I have one card in hand and 8 mana open, I draw this and give it haste, enchant Spinal Graft, swing for 10 that ended the game.

That RB deck also has many of combos like Fireslinger + Death Watch + Spinal Graft. It was the preferred deck I use not because it was powerful, but really fun to play as it could often surprise random opponents.

MTG is much more fun without all the overpowered crap, I prefer playing wi... (see all)

Simply put, Flowstoning is not Firebreathing. They can't be compared because Flowstoning is Very Bad at Firebreathing.

What Flowstoning is good at:

#1 Killing itself. Not being facetious! :D If you want to use Artifacts, exploit Death Triggers, and Do Things, you can bring your creatures' toughness down to 0 as a combat trick, at this one does that to himself pretty fast as far as that ability goes! (Idkn I think Water Servant is good at it too?) The MAIN reason for playing these odd "Pay Toughness Creatures"....is to metagame.

Flat out, no arguments, Black is much more outstanding at this sort of thing than Flowstone Giant and Water Servant. BUT you could go for the Obnoxiously Convoluted Plot:

1. Make a Black Deck that is stupidly good at Death Triggers.
2. Get your metagame to warp around your Black Deck. Do Not Use Artifacts.
3. Keep playing until they start bringing in Anti-Color Hate for Black. Throw in Dark Ritual and Phyrexian Obliterator at some p... (see all)
