If I'm correct, without a legal target when it resolves, none of it will resolve. So you must exile some instant or sorcery to deal the two damage or exile some creature to gain the life.

Evolving Wilds. Enough said.

Even though exiling a card is not in the cost for the shaman's ability it still comes before the other part of the ability in the text so if that cannot be satisfied then the rest of the ability is countered. Meaning you can tap the guy for the fun of it and have nothing happen.

Did.... did they print a Birds of Paradise stapled to a Grim Lavamancer? In multiple colors and with better toughness?

Wow. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the definition of a utility card.

works quite nicely with Terramorphic Expanse/Evolving Wilds

Show it to any new player, they will tell you this card is garbage.
Show it to any long time player, they will cover for their lives.

I'll never understand what happened in between.

Personally, I sold my foil version for $40 the moment I got it from my store because frankly, I don't understand why it's so good and I don't know how to use ebay or anything similar.

Regrets? none.

Even though I haven't commented in about a year, I had to login just to comment on this.

Every so often Wizards prints a card that attempts to redefine the Legacy metagame. Mental Misstep. Scavenging Ooze.

There are just so many things wrong with this card I don't know where to begin. Hybrid mana costed cards shouldn't be stronger than single coloured, though they often are. 1/2 for B is better than what black should get already. I have no idea why this thing needs 2 toughness and needs to block.

The second thing is that it can hit any graveyard. Not just your own. And it can hit just about anything that ever sits in a graveyard. This makes it so powerful for interacting and counter Tarmogoyf, Knight of the Reliquary, Terravore, Snapcaster Mage, Necrotic Ooze - so many staples in legacy. It may even give you a chance against dredge since... (see all)

This little guy was HUGE at Sunday's pre-release. I cracked 2 in my Golgari pack for Two-Headed Giant and my partner cracked one in his packs and slide it over to me. This dude beat so much face when he hit the table. So good now I want another 5 to have 2 playsets!

so much graveyard hate in return to ravnica. maybe we should instead call it "sh** on innistrad" set.

a vaniila 1/2 for 1 is quite playable, but with those abilities... whoa
