My salutes to Simic Guild!

Play it and your opponents have to hope they came loaded with Wrath of God, Inferno, Nevinyerall's Disk or something similar.

Unless this bad-boy gets countered or wrathed, he's virtually unstoppable. Talk about a BEAST :)

Simic skyswallower can't dodge wrath of god, but it does have what every good large creature should have, a way to get at the enemies life points, a form of evasion, and a form of protection. Put all 3 together and even at 7 mana its a really great creature. It's not garaunteed unremovable, but you sure make your opponent work for it.

He is the the second reason why I still want to play with UG deck (the first one is mystic snake). He is truly a Unstoppable Beast.

To answer your question Nantuko_Primus, yes; you can use graft with shrouded creatures and you can use the sky swallower with tooth+nail.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but according to graft's text, it doesn't actually target the creature, it merely move counters on to it. Therefore, this creature is found within the one group that can buff it and even if that is false, Novijen, Heart of Progress, the Simic's own uncommon land, can still buff it assuming you have the mana which, admittedly, is doubtful but still possible. Also, I've found that this works very well in combo with an entwined Tooth and Nail to get 2 of this card out for 9 mana, since (again, correct me if Im wrong) Tooth and Nail says choose, not target.

Fatties with trample are really good! If they have flying are even better! And if they have shroud are the best!
The best Leviathan, and the best cow in Ravnica block!

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
