Sky Swallower Is Right

Nice in DotP 2012.

Strictly more Simic than Sky Swallower.

An excellent finisher for a Simic deck, after you've cleared stuff out with a Trygon Predator. Here's hoping the upcoming Ravnica 2.0 block will have something similar, except maybe at 7/7 and with hexproof.

Probably the best thing about this guy is, in Simic, he isn't going to be a 6/6. He's going to be closer to 12/12.

Everything you want in a fatty and tailor-made for Simic, since graft is one of the few abilities that gets around shroud and Simic Guildmage is one of the few ways to get an aura onto the guy. I'm so looking forward to Simic in RtR I could pee my pants!!!

I always associate this card with "Float On" by Modest Mouse. I think it came on the radio around the same time Dissension came out and I was thinking about Magic the first time I heard it and since SSS is flying through the clouds... well, it got permanently attached to that song in my head.

Deadly Recluse?

I would play this guy even if he had been priced at 8 mana. He is quite big, has TWO forms of evasion (trample is a green evasion) and he has an unbiased protection, which barely makes him balanced. A really powerful card, but not a broken card. He is how I rate a deck's versatility.
"I see your win condition, I see your essentials, I see your removal... but can you theoretically (with the right hand) handle a Simic Sky Swallower?"

You wrath, you evacuate and discard or you play a flier/reacher that can kill him upon blocking.

Wing Shards would also work, though you'd be making your opponent a better player by reminding them to play everything on their second main phase.

I am a green Mage, and not since my very introduction to Magic 4 years ago have I really showed an interest in blue mana, let alone Simic guild (I play Gruul/Selesnya)

But this beautiful, wonderfully-constructed card may have just won me over

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
