If I devour a Sprouting Thrinax with this, will the three damage kill the tokens that would be spawned as a result of the thrinax being sent to the graveyard, or are the abilities handled simultaneously so the tokens survive?

Of course it's expensive; look what it does. A kicked (Devour 1) Caldera Hellion in combination with Splinter Twin and you have a creature that deals 3 damage to each creature every turn.

Add Basilisk Collar and Whispersilk Cloak and it's probably lights out.

If you wanna get tokens from Sprouting Thrinax to sac to this guy, here's how you do it. You play 4 Thrinaxes, Earthquake for 3 to kill 'em and get 12 tokens. Play this guy, sac 12 tokens, he's a frigging 15/15 that hits all creatures for 3 upon entering the battlefield. If timed right, you'll boardwipe everything that doesn't have flying, pro-red, and a toughness over 6. And get a 15/15, lol.

Devour always happens before ETB triggers. You devour "as" you come into play. you deal damage after you have entered play.

I remember having a hard time deciding to use this or Magma Phoenix. This guy is definitely way better than the Magma Phoenix. The Phoenix's ability is just too clunky and slow.

So if I have a 1/1 Mortician Beetle and I play this devouring three creatures, would the beetle die from the 3 damage, or would it get the three +1/+1 counters before the damage?

Protip: Sacrifice all the creature with a toughness of 3 or less.

Hellions are badass.

I'd like it even more if it had haste.

I know you guys think this card is great, but I can't say I like it. When you play it, you basically have to sac all your small creatures or they get burned, for only one +1/+1 counter apiece. It would be worth it if it had trample or if it was Devour 2 or 3. I just feel like you'd be better off playing a Mycoloth or a Marrow Chomper, both of which have Devour 2 at the same CMC, and end up with larger creatures that don't begrudge you all of your small creatures.
