I am very curious to see how good this will be in standard. I think 4 mana will keep it from seeing play, but you never know.

Perfect card in my eyes. Difficult to play outside of two-colored Green or Blue, which might make that deck viable.

@flyheight, 4 cmc (a very difficult to achieve double green+double blue) is very different from 2 cmc. This will probably be a 2 dollar rare in the future. It's no cryptic command.

Still R&D took twenty years almost to get to here from Pygmy Hippo

Having this in standard alongside Yeva, Nature's Herald, Essence Backlash, Skylasher etc seems pretty nice.

@Gcrudaplaneswalker You'd think so, but with the mana base in standard right now, I could see this easily being cast in a Bant or U/G control deck.

Plasm Capture into an early Angel of Serenity (hopefully with enough mana open for a counterspell) is thing I'm really looking forward to doing at FNM.

This card won us our second Two-Headed Giant game.

I had a U/G/R deck. It was past turn ten, and still didn't have any mountains. Then I draw this.


They try to cast a Carnage Gladiator (which my buddy had already bounced, we knew it existed), then I counter it. They can't do anything because of my Species Gorger out. Then they pass.

I get out all my red stuff, like a Zhur-Taa Druid and a Rubblebelt Maaka, and have mana left over for Armed // Dangerous.

(Btw, the way we won was by Breaking // Entering their Gladiator, then Progenitor Mimic on their Zhur-Taa Swine. What? He was going Grixis control. We expect THEM to bring our swords for us.)

The opponent might be more than a little suspicious if you are untapped and blue and refrain from playing juicy fatties.

"The opponent might be more than a little suspicious if you are untapped and blue and refrain from playing juicy fatties."

Definitely. It'll be difficult to fool an opponent when you have two untapped Islands and two untapped Forests. I'm pretty sure midgame is when an opponent will start casting 1CMC cards if they see that I'm leaving 4 very specific lands untapped.
