Love the flavor text, captures the essence of the card perfectly. Whoever doesn't like playing fatties like this, is probably losing sight of what's funn in magic. Sure, I know there is a thrill in seeing your opponents face when you've countered or bounced their fatty, I've done it and felt it. But there isn't a more satisfying feeling then seeing the horror on your enemies face as a huge creature bears down on them and they realize that there isn't a chance of being alive after it hits. And in a multi-player game, seeing that your creatures are now too big to deal with is pretty sweet too.

Scary with Runes of the Deus or Fireshrieker.
Or maybe a surprise Double Cleave

My first rare, and I still use it. Borborygmos is the shit. He so perfectly personifies R/G, being a huge beatstick with trample that powers up himself and his brethren the more he smashes. Being a really good cyclops is also a sweet bonus. Long live the Gruul Clans!

Beef it up with double strike and extra combat phases.. Mmm, tons of counters (especially in a token deck)

His name means, "a rumbling or gurgling sound caused by the movement of gas in the intestines." Amazing

Whats he using for a weapon? hmm, looks like a tree... grown around a house. a HOUSE. now that, friends, is how you best CRUSH THEM.

Although I am sure that any flavour enthusiasts would probably already know this, his two commands appear on other cards:

"Crush them!"
"We eat!"

These are actually the only two flavour texts attributed to Borborygmos, too!

Anyway, this card just screams "fun". Love the pure beatdown flavour here. =)

Anyone that doesn't love saying "CRUSH THEM!" as loud as they can is... probably a blue mage.

in (old) greek the difference between an ending in -mus and -mos is never very strict.
