More or less puts Carnassid and Ancient Silverback to shame.

Another one of the character gems brought out in Onslaught. I still wish more of his story had been told somewhere in Magic lore. Great card, great flavor.

"In this corner, we have a titanic plant-beast renowned throughout the land for its immense size and its regenerative abilities! And in this corner we have Arcani- oh wait, he's gone."

There are various scenarios where you shouldn't play this as if it had a "hidden cost."

For instance, against a control deck with removal like Wrath of God, Oblivion Ring, and Swords to Plowshares, the regeneration is irrelevant and you might as well try to get him to stick if you can.

Against a red deck, it's probably worth it to play him as soon as you can and force your opponent to 2-for-1 himself if he wants to remove Silvos.

If you're always thinking you have to wait to play this until you have seven mana, you're making the card worse than it is. You just need to know what kind of deck you're playing against.

Having used this as a finisher for some time in my WhiteBlackGreen control, I can say TheWrathofShane knows what he's talking about. Just because he costs 6, it's extremely unlikely he'll survive unless you have an extra Green available to regenerate him. He's basically a 7 drop.

That being said, he's won me more than a fair share of games, so he's hella awesome. Unfortunately, as time progressed, Silvos began eating more Terminates, Vendettas, and Wrath of Gods. This ultimately led him being cut, but that doesn't mean he's not good. Just that the 'Can't be regenerated' clause was ultimately too common for him to do some serious damage.

Also, just like all the other pit fighter legends from Onslaught, the flavor is really neat too.

On a side note, I honestly think that out of the old legends, he along with Arcanis I'd say are most deserving of returning as a planeswalker.
