It effectively bands with Changelings and has protection from Changelings. The phasing means the echo cost never needs to be paid, since it wasn't under your control since the beginning of your last upkeep, and phasing happens at the beginning of the untap step while echo happens in the upkeep.

Obviously this card is created in homage to the various abilities creatures have had in the past but there is something else that is kind of interesting about this card that I would like to point out. The artist of Old Fogey is in himself a relic of Magics past. If you look at the other works done by Douglas Schuler, you will notice he stopped doing card illustrations around the Revised era, eleven years before Unhinged.

Aside from the utterly confusing amount of keywords, he isn't all that bad.

@Eliteninjasauce: actually, the Artist credit is wrong, and a throwback itself. In fact Douglas SChuler was a misprint in every card done by this artist until Revised, where they correct it. In fact the artist is called Douglas Shuler, and if you search this name you can see that this man drew a lot of cards from Revised until Urza's Destiny, and something later. The most recent are a couple of cards from Betrayers of Kamigawa: Mending Hands and Vital Surge.

Back to the card: how this can have Flanking is beyond me...

Lol, why don't they add in the reminder text as part of the Oracle Update? That would be such an eyefull.

20 Black Lotuses and 20 Plague Rats, you say?
I think you should cut 10 rats and add 10 Ancestral Recalls, that should do the job!

I guess the Gatherer obscenity filter doesn't have the lexicographical acumen to understand what the word 'cumulative' means.

I hope Ol' Fogey got some enjoyment from the printing of Relentless Rats. His deck can be halfway tournament-legal now!

...but I suspect this dinosaur of duplicity. Real old-timer Magic players get teary-eyed wistful about Lord of the Pit.

How many people actually know how this card works? It's madness... oh wait, that's one ability it doesn't have... It's insane!

It can basically only band with another copy of itself, seeing as how 'bands with other Dinosaur' works only with other copies of cards with the same ability. There's only one other creature in existence that has 'bands with other' on it, and it's a token. Other than that, you've only got the lands from the Legends set that give that ability to legends of different colors.

Anyway, you can keep him in play if you use cards that move/destroy counters (now that cumulative upkeep has age counters).

Regardless of the rule text that leaves any casual game in utter confusion, a 7/7 for {G}{G} is not bad at all.
