this card is about to get ridiculous with the new Return to Ravnica mechanic, populate.

"To populate, put a creature token copy of target creature token onto the battlefield under your control."

thats big news for U/W decks who'll need a new outlet after venser cycles out(you'll be missed buddy!) but nothing scares like a U/G deck pumping out fat beasts them getting 'almost' free copies.

Populate appears only on a white card so far but I forsee it being a hand-me-down green and possible blue or black mechanic.

No one has mentioned the great use this has in Commander. Just let your General hit the grave when he dies and play him again for his normal cost. Then move him back to the Command Zone when this thing exiles him. You get two plays for each additional 2 that get added to his cost. I don't think you can get better recursion then that in Blue.

I actually got this in the same sealed pool as Parallel Lives and Essence of the Wild beleive it or not. Didn't end up running with that strategy, but I'm looking forward to using it in constructed.

At first I was like "Huh? I don't get it." Then I realized it was an Enchantment, not a sorcery.

Great for commander. For other formats it's probably too slow. What with beeing activated on turn 7.

12Billion Post-
2x Ancient Den
4x Cloudpost
4x Glimmerpost
2x Seat of the Synod
2x Tree of Tales
4x Vesuva
4x Doubling Season
4x Followed Footsteps
4x Mycosynth Lattice
4x Parallel Lives
(20 enchantment artifact creatures)
2x Tezzeret the Seeker
4x Voltaic Key
1x Time Vault
4x Precursor Golem
(12 'normal insanity' cards) = Twelve Billion Posts
1x Lab Maniac
1x Back From the Brink (use with Precursor Golem)
4x Skullclamp
4x March of the Machines
(10 Darth Parallax insanity cards)
How it Works:
TwelvePost + Mycosynth Lattice + Tezzeret the Seeker + Followed Footsteps + Opalescence = Lands are 5/5 artifact creatures/Followed Footsteps is an enchantment artifact creature, and can therefore enchant itself, and then Followed Footsteps can enchant everything else. Including the TwelvePosts.
Doubling Season and Parallel Lives. Now you have TwelveBillion Posts. (Voltaic Key + Time Vault for extra tu... (see all)

and how many people are just going to use the actual card as the token? come on, i understand wanting to be flavorful, but this is just more work than is really necessary.

Now even Blue can raise creatures from dead. I find it boring and poor design that every color specific feature gets spread over all colors. Color pie is leaking too much if you ask me.

I don't get it. This card sorta sucks, doesn't it?
I mean... obviously it might end up doing some really cool things. It costs 6 mana. It better end up doing some really great things.
I actually think the worst thing is that it's blue. Blue has so many better things to be doing then trying to play a bunch of bad creatures that it might be able to get back later if it gets an expensive enchantment.

None of that is to say it couldn't be fun in some multiplayer deck or something... but LOTS of cards fit that profile. Why did so many give this card such a high rating then? Schmeh.
