It just needs reach really. The flavor-text even states that it can pop up and down "with startling quickness".

I think whoever designed it had a "daddy long legs" type of an arachnid in mind: webless and groundbound, wide rather than tall. Even the "fold itself into a tunnel" in the flavortext feels more "wide critter squeezing somewhere narrow" than "tall thing crouching down". Hence no reach.

I like it. Haven't found a *use* for it mind you, just like it :P. I wish vanillas got more support, stuff like petroglyphs (buffs contigent on having no abilities) and pre-errata Ascetism(abilities through a third party, so they can have flexibility without being disqualified from their buffs).

Whenever I see a green vanilla creature like this, I feel at least slightly content in that it can get a buff from Muraganda Petroglyphs that few others can.

Surprisingly good card, I've never been sad to run it. It's easy to cast and hard to kill.

This is a pretty decent power and toughness at common for mono-black.

It's pretty good in limited and pauper formats. A 5/4 vanilla for 5 is okay for a common. It has no place in constructed or other such formats though.

Has anyone else noticed that this guy is golgari's signet?

Its flavor text makes me feel like it should have flash or something. Sadly it doesn't, which is too bad because it's a very cool looking creature but as is there really isn't a use for it. I guess it could be an ok scavenge target for Varolz?
