Yes, this triggers every time it attacks, but how on Earth (or on Ocean) does that mean it combos with Populate?

I'd almost this rather be a 4/6 creature... 7 mana cost for only 5 toughness isn't all that hot.. Good card if you can get it to stick for a couple turns... They will be in some trouble at that point.

This is a really Great Whale.
This is a great card which is a whale.
This card is clearly much bigger in artwork and in name than Great Whale.
This card is in the same pose as his great (grandson) whale.

Bonus points if you snag a Puppet Conjurer with this thing.

@verzanix

Disperse. :3

Edit: Hate me if you must, but you have to admit that would be pretty funny.

Also, I think the magnitude of this whale's size is clearly demonstrated by its ability to swallow Eldrazi like nobody's business. It's just a 5/5 because, despite its bigness, it is still otherwise not effective in combat. Gameplay-wise, the only real problem with the whale is he costs 2 mana more than he should. At 7-8 mana we get abilities that hit multiple creatures at once like Shipbreaker Kraken and Stormtide Leviathan, but this can only take out one guy at a time, and only when attacking. At 7 CMC, that's too slow. At 5 CMC, it's about right. Actually, that might even be pushing it. Maybe.

@DarthParallax

You have a good point. I think that the flavor is that the whale doesn't have any special powers; it's just really big. According to the art, the whale is probably the size of BFM's head, which IS pretty ridiculous, but I don't think that the whale is BIGGER than BFM... But yeah. It should not be a 5/5.
