That's a hefty price to pay to turn your opponent's creatures into sheep. A price I am willing to pay.

You seriously think that hes gonna play without lands?

For the record, I think he should exile instead of destroying. Makes a bit more sense. This way you can raise the guy from the graveyard.

In fact, you could target an indestructible guy and just give your opponent sheep tokens.

The flavor and art on this guy are Great, but the cost is hilariously prohibitive.

That art. Haha oh man.

I would play this purely for the shenanigans. However this wouldn't be so bad in a G/U landfall deck with rite of flourishing or something like that. I play sorotami savant and it's actually pretty good in that role. Of course this would be strictly casual and multiplayer only. I like the idea of saying "hahaha...it looks like that's now Emrakul, the Aeons SHORN!"

Ok lame.

Anyway, can someone explain the reasoning why he has to throw a smokebomb down and vanish whenever he makes the sheep?

Also, TIM!

What if you don't have any basic lands in the battlefield when ovinomancer enters it. Can you choose to return basic lands and let the ability fail or would you be forced to sac the ovinomancer?

Fervor would be a good way to use him.

No, if you fail to return 3 basic lands to your hand, he is getting sacrificed. Keyword here is "unless". If he had haste though, could bounce himself while the trigger is on the stack, and then it will fizzle because you cant sacrifice him.

Very powerful if you can give it haste. Sneak Attack was already mentioned, but any other good haste source will work too

In EDH/Commander, throw in pair of Lightning Greaves or Swiftfoot Boots and this becomes an Ovinize'ing machine gun!

Holy mother of drawbacks. Turning just about any creature into the weakest chump blocker possible is strong, sure, but its not worth returning 3 lands to your hand, having a turn of delay, and being extremely vulnerable to any removal yourself-for each activation!
