Absolutely overcosted. For that cost, I expect something stronger, and with those drawbacks, I expect something cheaper. It wasn't even good for its day. Nobody has fond memories of this card. This card never won any games, and I'd honestly be surprised if it went into any decks- ever.

I don't mean to sound so harsh, but c'mon. It's not like stronger cards weren't already printed for cheaper by this time.

Somehow I ave a Revised edition of this card. 7 CMC for a 6/8 that you must pay 3 to untap, doesn't untap during your untap phase, can't attack unless your opponent controls islands, and is buried when you control no islands.

That is just crappy all around.

Maybe you can make it SEMI USABLE using something like Magical Hack to change the land type required in the card text, but even then it seems more trouble than its worth.

Simple: load the deck with fish cards including jasconius.

First turn: Play "Index" to rearrange the top five cards your library so you can play a small fish card (can't think of any of the top of my head) for 1 mana and play "Polymorph" third turn.

Second turn: play "fish card" with converted mana cost of 1.

Third turn: Play "Polymorph" cast your line with the small bait fish (sacrifice the small fish card)... bamm! Island fish jasconius third turn you got a big blocker out for 2 less mana than its converted mana cost.

Load the deck up with fish cards, and "coat of arms," "Urza's incubator," and "magical hack."

I think this card is awesome.

Oh my; I wish they allowed this to be an island. You could Farseek him into play and then Yavimaya Dryad a Tropical Island to your opponent.

Aw YEH. Even better? He could be another infinite mana High Tide combo :D

Give me back my island fish!

Oracle wording refers to rewording so that you can't use his untap ability inifinite times during upkeep...

Really? Who does that??!

Just use Horseshoe Crab for {T}ing combos... not this {4{U}{U}{U} monstrosity...

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
