Quote from kalbear »I'm comparing this to Silvos because this is the Legend block, and Green deserves a kick ass, big ol' legend. Yeah, this guy isn't legendary (though with that name, why isn't he? What, are there a bunch of bodies of Jukai wandering around?), but he has the same P/T as Silvos, and he costs 3 more. The nonlegendary status is highly unlikely to be a problem most of the time - only in mirrors will this be any kind of significant drawback, and his cost ensures he won't be seen in a mirror. Whether a card is rare or not should not determine its constructed-level quality; only its playability should.
With Silvos coming out so recently, it's hard not to compare this 8/5 beast with that one. And it just doesn't compare favorably.

Quote from Sotha_Sil »so.. question.. is there a good spirit with cmc of 8 out there?
cause i can't understand why wizards keep making these creatures.. moss kami.. vine kami.. the (U) insect kami..
if.. imho.. some of the most used green cards in cok where cheap.. sakura elder.. the kodama arcanes.. the zubera.. hana kami.. stuff like that.. so what's telling wotc that they must keep on making these things?
(ok.. the dragon and kodamas.. but.. what else?)
Quote from kalbear »Stupid. Just stupid. Compare to Silvos. Is soulshift so good that it should cost an additional 3 mana and subtract regenerate? Was an 8/8 trampler for 9 so devastating that they needed to make the toughness low?
I guess that's what is so annoying about this - that it costs so much but has such a small ass.
