One of several Arabian Nights creatures that flavor-wise should have been Legends. I mean, this isn't just any Island Fish. This is a named Island Fish. It's a specific, individual Island Fish. It's Jasconius, the Island Fish.

This card is a pretty useless monster, although that's been mostly the rule for blue...

Islandhome: check
Untap cost: check

Although 7 CMC for a 6/8 wasn't that bad...UUU to untap kills it though...

Man, big blue creatures have come a long way. That being said, despite how silly this thing is, it was at least a threat (sort of) for its time. Assuming you gave your foe an island, a 6/8 creature with just an untap cost (not some silly sacrifice cost or something) was rather threatening. Still laughable by today's standards, of couse.

Combo with Magical Hack for the awesome Mountain Fish Jasconius.

This card is just AWSOME!

I must admit that I like these old weirdos a lot, and as a Vorthos I hope we will see something similar (maybe a bit more playable) again. Besides, I also like the artwork: the play of light of the setting sun is really well done.

If not reworded, with the modern rules for basic land types it could tap for Blue! :) And then still require BlueBlueBlue to untap... :( Definetly not good as a giant blue elf... :-D

For those who are curious about the name, see this article.

Best card is vintage block constructed standard draft EDH.
