I'm admittedly new to magic but was recently playing with someone when this card came up. we decided that since it cannot be the target of spells or enchantments, then it therefore couldnt be boosted by overrun. it seems like this point is being "stampeded" over in this discussion. why is that? am i misunderstanding something? any helpful response would be greatly appreciated.

I can do better with seven man. Yes sir I can.

Hey look! A 9/9 to which you can't give trample! You'll kill a saproling every turn, maybe even a wolf! Have a cookie!
Tokens. It happens. Until they play an overrun.

The name sucks. It would be just as devastating by calling it 9/9 w/shroud.

You actually can do better with 7 mana, if you think about how you can improve it with your other cards.

Plated Slagwurm is 7 mana; it's an 8/8, with a "shroud" ability that only affects what your opponent tries to use on it. Meaning that you can still give him things like Blanchwood Armor, Giant Growth, Beacon Behemoth's ability, etc.

7 mana for a 9/9, almost unheard of. 7 mana for a 9/9 with SHROUD, omfg need. 7 mana for a 9/9 with SHROUD in GREEN, *grabs wallet and goes to Game Empire*

5/5 for excellent mana ratio and the lack of invulnerability in green

Btw my power creep senses are tingling.

... This card doesn't seem to quite get all the respect it deserves.. I mean combine a card like GRUUL WAR PLOW with it XD Now you got a 9/9 shrouding trampler!!

You can play something can can stand with a 9/9 SHOUDer?? For only SEVEN mana?
I don't see how anyone for ONLY seven mana can even begin to say it's anything less than awesome. What do you honestly exspect?? Just a 9/9 no abilities for only seven mana or less?? Or a 9/9 trampler for only seven or less?? The 9/9 shouder to only be five or less?? In either instance you're asking for a broken card!
Granted, most don't want to play with a creature that costs over 5, BUT for seven mana, can anyone honestly do better with a single card play??
For only seven man can you honestly exspect better??
I mean, Wizards of the coast could have given it a cumunative upkeep or made it a creature that you have to give up a creature or more of you... (see all)

For 7 mana, it's a decent deal; Kalonian Behemoth + Asha's Favor = 0 life for your unlucky opponent. Almost no way to block a 9/9 with Shroud, Vigilance, Flying and First Strike. Almost as good as Inkwell Leviathan.

Combo with lure

Edit: I meant using lure on a dummy attacker.

Do you understand what "Dumbass" means? D-U-M-B-A-S-S. I know its tough because you failed 5th grade, but google it ghee-sh.
