I use him as my EDH Commander. Lots of things to add lands to my hand, give him Madcap Skills and Alpha Authority, make him 10 unblockable. I use a 50/50 split of lands and others, get him out quickly, then CRUSH THEM! WE EAT! Even better if I can give him double strike and Illusinists Bracers. Reveal 6 cards (optimally all a re lands) discard them, SMASHY SMASH EVERYTHING.

Two Words: Storm Cauldron

It screws up everyone else's day and gives you many free lands to pitch.

This in addition to all of the other suggestions here.

Basically only playable in EDH, though. 8 mana is a lot.

So, apparently this guy's name is a medical term. Interesting. :P

pl., borborygmi
Etymology: Gk, borborygmos, bowel rumbling
an audible abdominal sound produced by hyperactive intestinal peristalsis. Borborygmi are audible abdominal sounds produced by hyperactive intestinal peristalsis. Borborygmi are very loud rumbling, gurgling, and tinkling noises heard in auscultation, often without a stethoscope. The increased intestinal activity noted at times in cases of gastroenteritis and diarrhea result in borborygmi that do not have the intensity or the episodic character of "normal borborygmi." Borborygmi that are high-pitched and accompanied by vomiting, distension, and intestinal cramps suggest a mechanical obstruction of the small intestine and often precede complete bowel obstruction.

Sheesh! Tough crowd...

Sure he isn't going to be in any eternal decktypes. But as a reanimation target in EDH? He rocks!

Firstly, 7/6 trample is decent. Any lands you ever get in your hand are not dead cards (in the late game), they will be mana-free bolts. In the early game (yes, he is a reanimation target and so can be played fairly early), you can keep the land he fetches, meaning that he can help with dropping a land every turn. Also, seeing as you're playing him in a reanimation deck, his self-mill ability helps with the deck strategy. Not to mention the fact that with cards like Life from the Loam he becomes epic. If you can draw cards, you can recast Loam and spray 9 to the face each time. Unlike the other Borborygmos, he can win the game on his own. The other bororygmos needs a bunch of other creatures to go off.

This guy is a win con, versatile and fun.

I used to hang with Ol' Borby back in the day when he was a roadie for Danzig. We would go out to a bar, just to start a fight with a Serra's Angels biker gang member and wind up totally trashing the place to the ground.
Good times.

He’s such a huge badass, and yet move to a different plane and it only takes a single {B} to kill him. Bobo: keep away from Theros, lest you suffer an Eye Gouge.
