This will be a 4/4 + 4 life when you need a big attacker/blocker and it will be a 7/7 when your opponent has creature removal. Usually with punisher cards you kind of want at least one choice to be real good--but this one just doesn't give you much to work with.

I'm pretty sure no-one is ever going to pay that tribute. What would you most want; letting your opponent get a 7/7 for 4Green, or letting them only get a 4/4 and a measly 4 life for the same amount? That's what I thought.

Fantastic limited gold. Not that close to Nessian Asp level (another 4Green-cost common snake), but getting there.

Unlike some of the other Tribute cards, this one is great when you're down. Your opponent either gives you life, or a bigger creature. Both can save you in the future.

@cduke: This is Ladon, the guardian of the golden apples of the Hesperides. Hercules' eleventh labor was to steal the apples, and he did that by pranking Atlas into getting them for him.

I love the art-flavor.
The snake is sneaking up on a elk that is looking at an apple, and the elk is preparing to eat it.
Suddenly, the snake says:
"Step away from that apple, which gives me 4 life and I will spare you, but eat the apple and I SHALL EAT YOU OMNOMNOMNOM AND GET STRONGER MWAHAHAHAHHAHAH"

I wonder if anyone will ever pay tribute on this.

I mean...I guess? That tribute is never getting paid unless opp has something to immediately deal with it, and then you wont get to use your shiny new 7/7. Basically should read 4/4, do nothing.

@Continue I think you meant "definitely" unplayable outside of Limited.

Just ignore that tribute part, if you will. A 4/4 for 5 that gains you 4 life is all but unplayable outside of Limited.

Dare I make a comparison to a certain 5/3 for 5 in green? One that gains you 5 life on ETB?

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
