Awesome EDH general.

And those who say it can't see play are wrong. I pulled this in a draft and played it well. Yes it's a six drop, but it one turn you've gotten a card advanatge AND put it out of firebolt range.

This card, in my opinion, defies blue. It should be a 5/5 or a 4/4 flyer for 6 cmc. Then, you could pump him while drawing, and it wouldn't be broken.

What about Doubling Season?

Absolutely an astonishing card.

One of the best anti-infect creatures out there, and now with proliferate he gets even better! Especially since when your removing -/- counters you get to draw a card!

You can draw a card for every Blue2 you pay with no tapping? And, you get +1/+1 counters? Yeah, I can see absolutely no use for this creature. ;)

You know what I liked about the Zen block precons? They were really really cyclical...

Example is this guy. For Zen, the blue deck had a cool sphinx in Sphinx of Jwar Isle, then Worldwake gave us the beastly Goliath Sphinx, and now Rise rounds it out with a cool guy who is kind of a combination of the two. On the one hand, he is gigantic and efficient, much like the controversial Goliath Sphinx, but he couples that with a cool ability. Maybe not as good as jar jar's, but really good nonetheless.

They did the same thing with the reds, having 2 be dragons and the third be basically a dragon (actually, why wasn't it a dragon? Conquering was not manticore like at all, it might as well have just been Conquering Dragon...

Black was basically vamps all the way through...

Green and white changed though, but you get my point.

Some people would call that boring, I call it cool.

I could see this as a reprint in a core set. Just because it has a Zendikar specific name shouldn't preclude it, I mean, what's Sphinx of Uthuun?

Extremely effective, though I've oddly not see this card played as much when compared with other Sphinxes, the Frost Titan, etc. The UUU in the mana cost might have something to do with that, but still, this card is solid. Even if you use its ability only a few times, you still have paid for itself in cards and created a huge flyer. The +1/+1 counters can be fun in other ways (Experiment Krajj, etc.)

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
