5/5 for being almost as good as storm crow. Almost.

this card is hilarious.
I made a deck around it just for fun.
one of my favorite plays id to play Idyllic Tutor, to find Holy Strength to discard for his ability.

but seriously what can be said about this card, it's horrible, one of the worst cards printed.
at least it's strictly better than wood elemental

Garbage art.

Like face of fear, wotc are treating the ability cost of discarding as a GOOD thing, because of synergy with madness, recursion, threshhold etc. So basically it's a bad ability which is treated as a good ability, which is then double punished by costing 3 to activate and seemingly pushing up the CMC by 2. That really is crazy.

Unlike ashenmoor cohort, which is unfairly rated so low, I would say this really is a 0.5 card, as unlike 99% of creatures, it doesn't actually do anything.

@ScissorsLizard:

Your posting has clearly been from a while ago, as all the cards you listed have ratings over 0.6 stars.

The very forums seethe with the player's hatred for the art.

In the right corner, the reigning champion, the black scourge of the skies, and even if you defeat him, you will be devastated by his fearsome on-death effect, raise the roof for the one, the only, Chimney Imp!

In the left corner, the challenger, don't be fooled by his meek body, for with a minor sacrifice his power rises exponentially, the white protector of the pure, terror of the cabal, Aven Trooper!

Who will dominate the skies in this epic battle?

Simply not wort the cost, even the effect fails to justify it with yet another high cost.

Probably the worst card I have ever seen. This was worthless when it was printed, and power creep has made it worth less than the cardboard it's printed on. What were you thinking, WotC?

One of the worst creatures ever printed. So bad it has to be a joke - even the artwork is lame!
