I would have loved the card if it were a 7/7.
As it stood it was a 6/5 for 3BB... which I might not play even without the drawback (compare Kokusho).

Cool concept, but lacking the power to excite players.

Pretty cheap price for either effect. Of course any card which lets your opponent choose what it does is either Fact or Fiction or Browbeat or bad... but this just about manages to break that rule.

Should have been around 7/7 . .
8/8 for rare . .
I was looking for creature types that I haven't seen and I saw Anteater and I was like . . WTF?

If just there wasn't a "may"-clause for your opponent. It would be more reliable and actually make this a double-Cruel Edict that turns into a 6/5 body if he doesn't have two available.
But like this it's worse than either of them, since your opponent will always decide for your worst.

there are plenty of good cards that let your opponent pick stuff, one of my favorites is eather storm, which I read as 3U deal 4 damage to an opponent.

this card is no good though, there are plenty of better things I can do with my mana and my opponent WONT sac the creatures to counter him.
they don't have enough creatures in play.
a card with an effect like this needs to be really powerful, something NOBODY wants to see hit the battlefield.

It would be nice if cards functioned as they were written. Dire cases of errata are to be expected, but it's frustrating to see this changed to Anteater Beast for no apparent reason.

Needs to be reprinted to reflect its ant-eater typing. Which is a definite indicator that we'll get ant-eater tribal in Return to Ravnica. Obviously. They'll probably be black-green. Golgari like never before.

It's either a big beast in Black or a 2 for 1. Seems solid to me. Reprint in M2015, and I will draft this thing. A LOT. Slots well into a Peasant Mono-Black Devotion Deck.

This was my win condition in a MBC deck for awhile before I picked up 4 Nantuko Shade.

Hint: kill all their creatures before you play him.

Now outclassed by a couple 4-drop 6/6 demons though.
