**EDIT: To clarify my point, the trumping of his regen powers is BUILT INTO his mechanics! Since the sac is an ETB/CIP effect rather than a cost, it CAN be interrupted by a bolt, unsummon, terror/doom blade (if they aren't black), etc. of one of your two little dudes! NOT cool!**

I own two of these and the more I think about it, the more I realize how much this guy sucks. Blue and/or white control decks will give him a wedgie and a swirly and then stuff him in a locker thereafter.

To add to Snaxme's list of this guy's worst nightmares:

ANY cheapo blue bounce:
Unsummon
Boomerang
Into the Roil
Peel from Reality

And EVEN WORSE than blue bounce...
Otherworldly Journey
I think that card seriously gives this guy bed-wetting night terrors. A single Otherworldly Journey on him and suddenly you're down three or four creatures (one of which is probabl... (see all)

2 life and 2 creatures is a small price to pay for a 10/4 regenerator. Of course, he dies to Flame Slash, Path, Swords, Wrath, Damnation, DoJ..well, you get the idea. Oh, and he can be countered.

majinmonkey: I run an EDH deck with this guy and use discard, drawing, and recursion to support him. Yeah he can get removed but the deck has many more options that are just as deadly including all but 2 of the Specters.

only drawback that actually matters in edh is the card draw. in his colors, sacking two creatures is a combo starter, not a drawback

This card has been my favorite card in magic since I started back in Alliances.

It's kind of bad now but it was really, really bad back then. Everyone had incinerates, reprisals, swords to plowshares, boomerang, unsummon, or more insultingly they had regenerators like will o' the wisp or drudge skeletons.

I made a deck with him when mirage was out and I lost everygame that he hit the table and won every game where I didn't draw one of my two copies of LoT (casual games not tournaments). This was the first card that clearly demonstrated the concept of card advantage to me. If you cast this guy you probably just handed the game to your opponent.

He's actually better now than he was before. There are way more multi-colored lands and there are a ton of good cheap creatures that do something when they die. There are a lot more ways ... (see all)
