Well, it would work with the Pestilence for one turn. The tokens aren't created until the end of the turn, so if you paid {B}{B}{B}{B}{U}{U}{U}{U}, you could get 4 tokens at the end of that turn... and you couldn't activate Pestilence ever again, or you'd kill them all...

If only starfish make a comeback this could be great in a starfish tribal deck.

Not that there are many of them in the first place,
but this is probably blue's most annoying chump blocker card. (The other one got printed in the next set as a rare.)

"Alright, i'll block your fattie and regenerate for Blue. Oh yeah, and i also get another Starfish next turn - you know,
just in case you were thinking of attacking with that second fattie there you've just casted."

Well, that's of course assuming your opponent's fatties don't have evasion or trample.
And keep diving to the ground of the ocean when they attempt to attack you.

Still, this card would make an awesome reprint.
Or an almost-functional reprint, since the trigger is a bit quirky (in case they want to put it in a Core Set).

@crackmore: Doesn't work, read the rulings.

"Spiny Starfish's first ability creates a regeneration shield for it. Spiny Starfish's second ability checks whether it _used_ any regeneration shields that turn, not whether any regeneration shields were created for it."

This card is amusing and fun, but not particularly powerful. Sure, you could find ways to use the tokens, but you also have to find a way to kill it repeatedly to create them, and at that point you'd be better off using some other source of tokens. And while blue has few options for token-generators, it also has fewer ways of using them than most colors...
