Balls-out ridiculous.

Ok, I Birthing Pod this into a Wakedancer for 7 power. Got a Day of Judgment? If you do, congrats, you just used it to kill essentially one card.

This card is unbelievable. The capacity for clever pod tricks is awesome, but even without, even just bashing across the table, trading up, or sucking up removal this card is outstanding. Totally in love.

This guy laughs at black sun's zenith.

an excellent choice for any aggro deck containing green. Heck, even midrange/aggro control gets a lot of mileage out of him.

Worst flavor/mechanic mismatch in the set. It's a great card, don't get me wrong, but the flavor doesn't match at all.

If you wanted a quick, undying spirit, but didn't have a good idea for his flavor, just call him "Vengeful Geist" or something else angry-sounding to give him a "rush at you" kind of flavor.

If you wanted a ghost haunting the tree he'd been hanged on (neat concept, btw), give him an ability like defender (to represent the fact that he's haunting a tree in a forest you control, and will only fight things that come near it). It could still have undying, and would either have lower mana cost or higher P/T.

As it stands, it just looks like they had a neat idea, had a neat card, and stuck them together with no thought at all about whether they matched. For a block with such great top-down design and flavor, this one sticks out like a sore thumb to me.

Love this guy! Excellent fit in my mono green standard deck

Sweet card. Green deserves more aggressive 2-drops in standard, like Garruk's Companion.

This guy + Plaguemaw Beast + Power Conduit = +1/+1 counter dispenser / proliferate engine.

Also triggers morbid.
