This guy is a textbook example of cards that look good but dont deliver the merchandise on the battlefield. Its overcosted, doesnt fly, and its indestructibility means nothing when it comes to infect. At 6 cmc, you need to much untapped mana to create a surprise, and the suprise will be your opponent saying to himself: "Whew! I'm so glad he wasted his 6-mana spot on this". Want good surprise removal? Invest in Dispense Justice instead.

As you know "Indestructability" costs (Darksteel Myr) so normally it costs

Would have given it 5/5 just for art, but that wouldn't be doing justice to the rating system because this card is so horrid. Sad to have pulled this, but that wallpaper is definitely worth whatever wizards payed the artist. Again, a waste of perfectly good art. I guess I'll give it 3/5 for having a few different abilities on top of artwork

An expensive repeatable target for Hoard-Smelter Dragon?

Those are good abilities, but they aren't THAT good. If he had a lower cost, maybe even 1 less, then he would be playable, but there are better things at 6. That said whenever I see this card, I really really REALLY want to put him in a deck, but I just can't get myself to do it.

I love it when I have 2 etched champion out, then I cast this to elegantly activate metalcraft when they try to swing or nuke.

People understimate what a premium is placed on all three abilities - flash, vigilance and indestructibility.

The short list for indestructible creatures is only about a page long, and a lot of those are worthless in combat. Flash is an ability that adds 2 or 3 to the cmc of a creature, and vigilance also generally takes a 4/4 from 3 or 4 mana to 5. We get this for 6, and we should be glad of it.

Equip this with a Sword of Light and Shadow, and your whole board is now removal proof, sweeper proof, and any single thing that attacks you needs evasion. 5/5

Throw a Basilisk Collar on this guy and you have an amazing creature.

Throw a Basilisk Collar on Wurmcoil Engine and you just look silly...

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
