I was gonna say cathar's crusade but someone beat me to it so I'll say Conjurer's Closet instead: devour, produce, flicker, devour, produce.

Also Stinga you'd only get 32 tokens, not 40 you get 1 per counter not 1 per point of power on mycoloth, sorry. Your poem is still awesome though

Again, another card getting voted lower than it should be.

Every time I see this card, it has to be removed or it's game over in a few turns. It doesn't matter how bad their deck is; this will crush a 20/1 lead in several turns. Not overpowered or anything.

I love this card, i use a Selesnya populate/lifegain deck and this card is fantastic especially with doubling season or parallel lives.

This guy is just a big removal check. Either they nuke him or you win. Which is why the smart magic player would run with duress.

Wow, the reprint of this is rated significantly lower than the original print, which is strange.

I see no reason to hate this card - at it's worst it's a 4/4 for 5 cmc, which isn't too bad (who am I kidding, if you hardcast this thing and it gets flickered I'd be happy just to HAVE a 4/4 if the opponent's controlling), not to mention you still get the chance to re-devour should this happen. He combos incredibly well with himself, especially if you can get him off the battlefield and back onto it, and with a few creature tokens he might as well be a win-condition of his own. With a lot of cards, it's only your own fault if you put all of your eggs in his basket, but that doesn't make him bad - you take the same risk playing just about any card - heck, even Emrakul can get foiled by some well-played spells and giving this fellow Hexproof is far from impossible. You can boost his counters and accelerate the token production and if you're playing around with tokens while we're at i... (see all)

Was rated 3.4 when I found it. C'mon people; it's pretty good with a lot of things; even Sprouting Thrinix; when it gets whacked just cast this eating the saps; you get a 10/10 that will plop 6 saps on your upkeep if not dealt with.

It may not be mega competitive; but it's at least a 3.5 yeah?

Definitely want one for my Simic Vorel and Kalonian hydra deck. Trying to get a viable deck that's not too Timmy-ish.
