"'The whirling dance or Sufi whirling that is proverbially associated with Dervishes, is the practice of the Mevlevi Order in Turkey, and is part of a formal ceremony known as the Sema. The Sema is only one of the many Sufi ceremonies performed to try to reach religious ecstasy.'"

They have a pill for that now.

Still not sure what a dervish is or why they whirl.

By today's standards, this card is rubbish.

This really highlights how bad power creep is... I remember this card tearing up the tournament scene back in its day. Now it's not even mediocre, it's actively bad. If this concept were reprised today, it would be a 2/3 for that casting cost, it would get 2 +1/+1 counters per hit, and it would be mythic rare.

It would also be called "Flamespin Wrackfang Dervish" or something.

Don't think it's so safe from monoblack. mutilate infest massacre and the like will kill it in a jiff. Not to mention barter & chainer's

Also, foxxye's comment reminds me--here is a list of cards no one shall ever mention as potential combo material to any card, since they are exceedingly obvious and combo with everything, and if i hear them one more time im going to shoot you in the foot:

1 training grounds
2 voltaic key
3 painter's servant
4 torpor orb
5 sundial of the infinite
