No it's not. This doesn't cost 5 mana every turn. Sprout Swarm is awesome still, but they're not comparable.

Don't need a WHOLE lot of support depending how you run it. Usually I'm unimpressed with this or the life gain honden, but if you did a naya deck with those enchantments you already have a sturdy mana base, will do 3 damage to up to 3 targets each turn, gain 6 life, and pump 3 spirits out a turn for chumps or something.

Not great, but this is a USABLE card, not 1.5 star quality. Keep in mind too that:
A-kamigawa was a slow block
B-some manafixing is free and PREFERABLE to basic lands most of the time, like terramorphic expanse (for deck thinning) or dual lands, fetch lands, or pain lands

Awakening zone isn't better for attacking. Personally I'd include both if there was something I needed to accomplish with several attackers. And awakening helps you pay for this one.

Archdemon of Unx

Happy now? 2/2 zombie at the beginning of each turn in a B/G deck. I assume you're all playing (or choosing not to play) this card in Legacy/Vintage/Commander anyway.

Awakening Zone is better for all your generating needs unless you're abusing spirits.

Let's not forget Paradox Haze.

Enchanted Evening + Aura Shards + this Honden = death.
Get an extra honden out and you're wiping out two permanents a turn.
This works with any token generator, really, but I really love hondens.

2 Spirits per turn when combined with the other shrine...and it is awesome when used with the sacrificing spirits theme of Kami Reborn

5 mana for a legendary enchantment that only works if you waste card slots on other shrines and mana fixers? Bad.

Oh hey, its also another freaking kamigawa legend. Fun fact: no other block in the history of MTG had legendary enchantments.

Because legendary enchantments are a really stupid idea.

1.5 stars, only because it sucks slightly less with paradox haze now.
