Terravore in and of itself doesn't make much sense, but put it in a combo deck built around it, and this thing can be quite the large creature.  There are plenty of ways to get lands into the grave currently, including sac lands and cycle lands, plus other spells that can send land to the grave.  You can even do an armageddon or obliterate affect and cast this guy out fairly quickly... you'll have a huge creature and your opponent will have no way to adapt in time, hopefully.

Don't even think about it in limited.

More combolicious fun. This likes to team with Balancing Act, and a bunch of sac lands from Invasion. Alternatively, he also goes well with land destruction. But Magnivore is much better in the land destruction deck, since you will be casting so many sorceries anyway. Not a bad creature, but too dependant on lands being in the graveyard, and that's the one permanent type that is least likely to be in the graveyard.
 
Constructed: 2.25

Not too expensive,  plus trample, means this guy may see some play aside
from the obliterate decks.  In limited though, there's not yet been a
landkill (or land cycle + sac) heavy enough environment for him to be
worthwhile.
constructed - 3
limited -1.3

Terravore

What a fun creature to build a deck around. I picked this card from my Oath
of Terravores deck. The only creatures were 4 Terravores. Oath of Druids was
used to get them into play, and get all the land I can into the graveyard.
Other cards in the deck were Moments Peace, which I could use if oath put it
into my graveyard, Steely Resolve so the Terravores could'nt be targeted.
Sterling Grove was included to protect my enchantments, or search for the
needed Oath. There was of course other search and helpfull cards included.
And if my opponent does'nt play with a lot of creatures, i could'nt use the
oath. In this case, the Treetop Villages and Forbidding Watchtowers were
very helpfull.

Other Terravore decks are RG land destruction with Stone Rain, Wild Fire,
etc. I decided to go with Oath since I've never seen it before, so there
was'nt really any outside influence on my deck build.
