The joke deck would work if there was an R&D's Secret Lair in play. And with the Lair in play, Jasconious would count as an Island for his Islandhome ability, as well.

But I do believe someone made a joke deck that used fetch lands to put this into play. What is the infinite combo that the new oracle note is talking about?

Umm...Experiment Kraj, Wirewood Channeler, three other elves, and this guy? I dunno...anyway, it doesn't work anymore :P

It wasn't a creature with a basic land type; back then the creature type was *everything* after the type, even if it was more than one word (for a while, Goblin Wizard wasn't a Goblin, nor a Wizard, but just a Goblin Wizard). This is not the rule anymore, and good riddance.

As for the card itself, this is an unplayable relic of a time when WotC thought big creatures needed huge drawbacks to balance them out, as if the fact that the game would often be over before they could be brought to bear wasn't drawback enough. A 6/8 for 7 mana would have been fair if not on the weak side even without any drawbacks; with them, this card became essentially unplayable.

I was pretty young when I first got into Magic, and this was in the first Magic product I ever bought, a Starter Pack (or whatever it was called) of Fourth Edition. I immediately loved this card and thought it was really awesome. It was my favorite card for quite a while.

I was dumb when I was young. Cool art, though.

It was a creature with a basic land type? Interesting.

I suppose this was a decent card in its days, but not worth it with power creep today.

At best it's probably a tough defender.

Kind of like Dryad Arbor, since this says it's an island.

I like the name. The name is nice. Other than that, it's very very dated.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
