I'm not sold on this guy one bit. He's expensive
for a 3/6 creature. You do get a greata bility
though. If you take him early in a draft and
dedicate to green/black I'd imagine he's going
to be pretty amazing. Being able to make a 4/4
creature to attack with every turn is pretty
nice. This guy isn't one I can see showing up in
a lot of decks, but you can definitely expect a
few people to play with it. He's ability to too

Bah. I don't care if you are continually turning
a creature into a land each turn, I still don't
like this card. First, the mana cost (3BBG) is a
bit of an investment for something that isn't
directly contributing to you winning the game.
Second, you *still* have to pay an activation
cost to get the extra body on your side of the
table. Third, you have to tap the Corrupter to
activate its ability, meaning you will generally
only get a single extra body per turn. Shame on
you if this finds its way into your casual or
For limited purposes, I get to do a complete 180
on my opinion of this card. Although the
investment is large, you tend to have a bit more
time in limited to get rolling, and a 3/6 body
can be somewhat significant. If you can manage
to stall long enough and get this guy active,
you will generally be winning the game.
A nice ability in theory, but so far in the set,
Black/Green isn't one of the better color combos
to go after in draft. There are a few very good
cards in the colors, but it doesn't always
translate into a good deck. Black Blue mill
beats the crap out of it, and Green/White seems
to deal with it also. I've never seen anyone
able to make more than one "forest creature"
with it in draft. So, while the potential is
there, it never really seems to get off the
