This guy is awesome against infect and wither. You want to give my creature -1/-1 counters? Sure, I'll take them. *regenerates Deity of Scars back to 7/7*.

I'm a big fan of this entire cycle, but I consider Scarsy here one of the worst members thereof. I'll write about my opinions of all of them someday, but for now I'll stay on topic. The name is rather boring compared to something like "Demigod of Revenge" or "Overbeing of Myth", the flavor text is incredibly dull, and the ability, while decent, feels well short of deity status.

Here's an off-the-cuff attempt at a better version. The name isn't perfect, as I'm finding it hard to come up with a single word which means "refusal to surrender to the inevitability of death" or the like (basically, for being The Terminator, that's what I see as being the concept behind a BG "god"); I've settled for "relentlessness" but would rather have not used "-ness". I also prefer "Progenitor" as the first part of the name, as this is the most BG-appropriate synonym for "Deity", but I figured that a four-syllable first word followed by "of" leaves very few options for the name's final word without re... (see all)

Slap a Glistening Oil on this guy for unlimited Regeneration.

The flavour text really doesn't do him justice. Go read his part in the Seer's Parables, and learn why he's awesome.

Rather a nice card. Saving its skin and making it bigger at the same time are definitely a plus.

If they ever do persist again I hope they make a 3 mana cost version of this guy with persist. Maybe:

{(b/g)}{(b/g)}{(b/g)}
Creature
Persist
{(b/g)}{(b/g)}, Remove a -1/-1 counter, regenerate ~
2/2

Basically this makes it a super skeleton that can only be exiled if you keep pumping mana into him. Survives -X/-X debuffs, sacrifices, and destroy. It still dies to -1/-1 counters if you don't have mana, but.. that's fine. They could alternatively do the opposite with undying:

{(b/g)}{(b/g)}
Creature
Undying
{(b/g)}, Remove a +1/+1 counter, regenerate ~
1/1

which would be neat as it makes killing the thing a pain, but it's also not much of a threat

In a casual Modern deck, this is kind of a beast with Gray Merchant of Asphodel.

@Sutebe: Long story short, he's basically a wild animal turned into the physical embodiment of the instinct to survive.
