The art definatly deserves the card. I can't wait for a Putrefax wallpaper to be released. In the mean time, II'll keep mixing Putrefax and Skythrix into Mimic Vats and making some deadly soup.

Not quite as good as I thought it was gonna be, I honestly think Skithiryx is still better for infect...

But despite being really unstable, he's actually very effective... I like him, even if he's not quite as good as skith.

If two of these popped out the turn you cast Genesis Wave then there's a special place in hell for you! ;-)

Now that we have Parallel Lives, Mimic Vat can make two Putrefax tokens to attack for 10 trampling poison for three mana! Doesn't seem bad at all.

@Arachnos it will still be sacrificed during the next end step. You just wont have an end step for your turn with sundial. That generally would be your opponent's next turn

I really like him in a reanimator deck, actually. Use Buried Alive to get him, Death's Shadow and The Mimeoplasm. Then Exhume The Mimeoplasm and choose to copy Putrefax with +1/+1 counters from Death's Shadow. You end up with an 18/16 creature with trample, infect, and haste. Just need to watch out for instant removal, which is why I try and save him for when an opponent is tapped out for a turn or isn't running a control deck. The fact that you only get one swing is a downer and could mess you up if not played carefully, but with trample, haste and infect, one swing should be all you need if you use it at the right time.
