While I love this guy, he's unfortunately one of the Future Sight cards that provided an image of what the future was gonna look like.

Now, with Invisible Stalker, Geist of Saint Traft, and Sigarda, Host of Herons, all protected from counterspells by Cavern of Souls, the lack of interaction for one card has become the reality for the game as a whole. :-(

Just discovered this combo while building a green/black deck and posted in the other creatures comments... but Lotleth Troll and this = turn 3 win with infinite/infinite lothleth troll.

Hate for black and blue much? Great card, troll shroud would have made it epic.

Cool idea, but it's still overly expensive; too bad it didn't go straight into play from being discarded, like Dodecapod or Obstinate Baloth. Having a hard-to-counter / remove creature is no longer that appealing when it can simply can be raced. By the time six-mana cards are being played, a 4/5 shroud is not looking terribly threatening.

If I understand Split Second correctly, it can still be countered by triggered abilities like Erayo's Essence. Though that can be evaded rather easily, just throw away a spell beforehand.

Also, unmorphing Voidmage Apprentice counters it.

All he needs is indestructibility and evasion and he's a true Ninja.

Card is worth the six mana. This belongs in any deck that can mana ramp well.

This really needed Flash. Other than that, it's cool :)

By itself, it's a nice beater that resist to many removals, maybe more removals than Thrun, the Last Troll.

However, I think this card should have an updated version that cost less, but more color-agressive (to prevent splashing a color only for this beater). Maybe 2GGG or even GGGG (for one G, you have a leatherback baloth with 3 awesomes abilities!).

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
