I figured I would use this with my Venser, the Sojourner. Seams like a good Idea to keep triggering the -1/-1 counters while proliferating over and over again.

Great in Level Up decks

Seriously, this card looks great in Vintage with Trike, Tez, and Jace in $T4KS. This card will also be ridiculous in a number of casual decks as well.

I went half on a scars booster box with a buddy from work, i pulled this card, contagion clasp, thumming bird, exoskeleton, mimic vat & prototype portal (along with just about every other good infect & prolif card asside from blight dragon & the praetor one. At any rate, it was no secret that my new deck was meant to be a broken black, blue, green & artifact poison filled, proliferate one. Long story short, it hasn't taken me longer than round 10 to seal an @$$ whoopin'! One game, i prototyped the engine 2 rounds back to back, with the clasp on the field & with that & the help of just a couple creatures & an enchantment, inflicted 17 points of poison filled overkill in one round! Yikes!!

6 mana is actually cheap for what this does.

Immediate weakening of entire opposing army, killing any x/1s and if the opponent doesn't immediately get rid of it the following turn is a nearly a 1-sided Wrath of God with side benefits. So powerful it is playable even without poison, planeswalkers, or levelers. With them it might have been playable without its first ability.

Also works well with Oran-Rief, the Vastwood.

Tezzeret is unneeded for multiple uses per turn. Just Voltaic Key and lots of mana (Everflowing Chalice).

This card makes Master Transmuter even scarier.

ANY counter, Jace faster, then do it again

A good Poison deck should have enough counters by the time you have 6 mana - I prefer Clasps. Planeswalkers are usually pretty good a prolifing themselves.

For boardwipe, cards like Marsh Casualties Consume the Meek Shrivel Day of Judgment Chain Reaction or even Sleep are cheaper.

You guys are all saying how great it is with Tezzeret, but I'm thinking Venser.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
