When you think about it, we're all Aref the Hunter. (Think FPS)

@dudecow: Boar Umbra already has a home; its name is Aura Gnarlid.

This thing is gorgeous! I am referring both to the art and the card. Troll shroud is great, especially on a fairly cheap creature. Most of the time you don't need to target your bigger creatures for them to do well, so they might as well have full shroud. This guy, however, is a great aura target. You can play these with umbras for zero card disadvantage, which is a great thing. I love all the steps Wizards is taking to make beneficial creature auras playable, because I've always been a big fan of them.

This guy might not be Troll Ascetic, but... Nothing is. That was one cussing great creature. It's perfectly alright if we don't have every creature at that level.

<3 wolves :D

And I also love cards that make me want to use auras (especially totems). The biggest problem with totems for me is actually bounce, and this guy fixes it admirably.

Savage Silhouette Basically turns him into an uber Troll Ascetic, and you only need to spend $1.60 (Australian) for a playset of both, rather than a hefty $28 for 4 trolls.

The art work, the playability, awesome. While keeping up with the pre-release information I found myself waiting for this card more than most of the more expensive cards. Of course the toughness is a draw back, but mostly every card has it's draw backs that people will complain about. For a common, this card is near perfect. A great card ! Thanks Magic !!

I like the approach of troll shroud for green lately. It fits the flavor of creatures (especially wolves...) being receptive to man's "touch" if it doesn't feel threatened IE: it's summoner blessing tit with enchantments but the opponent not being able to manipulate it. Although... i COULD put a quag sickness on my own wolf but maybe he is very loyal :P

Viridian Claw is a nice little equipment for this wolf.
