Phenomenal Saproling generator and giant monster too! Team this up with Rhys the Redeemed for a greater than exponential growth that will have your opponents surrendering before your plant-tastic might

@Continue: This card's low rating is because it dies to Doom Blade.

Yes, yes, I know. But it's a more serious problem with Devour than it is with (say) a Baneslayer Angel, because this card pretty much requires at least one sacrifice to be worthwhile. And if it immediately gets hit by removal, you're down two cards to your opponent's one.

Additionally, you need another creature to sacrifice or it's generally going to suck -- it essentially shares the problems creature enchantments have (and almost no creature enchantments get used unless they have some special feature that protects them from the 2-for-1 danger.)

It's fun when it works, but it's a risky card to play.
