This was when they realized that creatures were too often underpowered compared to non-creature spells. I think this was a change for the better that they were willing to up the power of creatures.

@Falyxron: LOL. If you really stopped during Invasion as you say you did, it's a good thing you didn't stick around to see Spiritmonger in Apocalypse.
You were right though, and now things have gotten even more ridiculous. The key is to have enough people to play with who are interested in casual play and not just building $500 tournament decks that they got off the net. The other key is to make good use of what you have. I don't use any mythics in my decks and barely any rares, and I can still match my friend's Jund deck packed with Garruk and Lotus Cobras and what have you.

This card was actually what made me stop playing Magic for many years. When this card was printed, it came as a sort of confirmation to me that Wizards was making cards that they knew were overpowered, and only balancing this by making them rare. While it sounds workable in theory, in reality it just meant that in order to be good at the game, you needed to spend a lot of money.

My beef with the card aside, it is an excellent creature, and if you're making a green beatdown deck, I would highly recommend it. It's a good card to have in your hand at any point in the game, which is a boast not many other creatures can make.

Mark Rosewater once told a story about how, during playtesting, he was given a deck that used Grizzly Bears as a proxy for this. However, he didn't know that at first. When he found out, he began holding it back so that he could play it with kicker, and ended up winning fewer games. The lesson? Grizzly Bears is better than this, due to being worse than this... or something.

Grizzly Bear is a bad card, I would never cast this for 2 unless my hand demanded it.

While I appreciate your efforts, you don't really belong next to Necropotence....
