I think his pre-con deserved Doubling Season.

Anyone else noticed the amazing synergy with Protean Hydra. Its token gaining ability triggers upon it losing counters from any source so you can create as good as as many tokens as you have mana plus youll be buffing your hydra to insane levels very easily :D

I had really hoped that he would interact in better ways with fungus creatures (and I don't mean just Mycoloth)

Type your comment here.Earthcraft + Juniper-Order Ranger + Ghave = infinite saps and an infinitely pumped ranger

The new undying mechanic is cool with this guy.

"Hi there, Ghave. This is my friend, Corpsejack Menace. I thought you guys might get along."

Five minutes later...

"Ghave, do you take this... horrid... abomination to be your wife? You do? Well then... I'd say kiss the bride, but I don't know how exactly you would go about doing that..."

He's tailor-made for EDH, and it shows. He is very, very good but does not seem broken in the format, like Animar does. He was clearly designed as a build-around card, but the good part is that what you can build around him is not so well-defined. You can run the token-deck route, the +1/+1 counter route, the heavy sacrifice/death trigger route, and probably a few others. Let's start by listing cards he is ridiculous with:
Sigil Captain: All the Saprolings you can pay for and subsequently huge creatures.
Juniper Order Ranger: Al the Saprolings you can pay for, and no sacrificing before you get a huge creature
Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter: Decent since you can pay Variable Colorless to kill something with toughness X or less, Vish himself gets huge for cheap, nuts with Juniper Order Ranger and/or Sigil Captain. Potentially -4/-4 for 1 if you've got both.
Skullclamp/Fecundity: Hahahaha. Hahahaha! HAHAH... (see all)

Out of all the Precon EDH general's, Ghave is by far my favorite. He's cheap, He boosts your creatures, and he gives you tokens. What's not to love? And because he's a big creepy looking guy, I decided to build around that theme. And what I got was an Infect EDH deck that Reanimates, Spawns, Kills, Life Gain, and literally sucks the life out of you as it grows in power. Just like a Diseased Fungus would do.

Think about this guy with Sigil Captain. 1: Make a 2/2, assuming you pull the 3/3's counter off to make another 3/3. No other cost. Or try it with Doubling Season too. 1: Make a 4/4 and a 5/5.

The synergies with this guy are unfreakingbelievable. I cannot wait to finish building my deck.

To all people who don't see why this is three colours, I think I've got it figured out:

He's Green, White and Black.

He comes into play with five +1/+1 counters. This makes him big and symbolises growth. Which is green.

He can remove counters from some creatures to create others. Those creatures sacrifice personal strength to contribute to the community, or the greater good. Which is white.

He can sacrifice creatures to add to the strength of others. Which is black.
