Damn, that big.

I hate it when WotC prints HUGE creatures with no trample. Apparently a lone goblin can stop that thing.

I tend to flavour such things as easily distracted. Sure the distractor gets horribly horribly murdered, but the distractee doesn't collapse the whole gorram building.

Fortunately there are plenty of ways to give creatures trample or flying or another form of evasion. I agree though, some creatures scream of being trample worthy. Also, excluding */* creatures, is this now the largest printed power and toughness on a creature?

Edit: ninja'd by Nigerian Prince... if you count it :P

Me, I’m just interested how they’re willing to bring back old guild mechanics. Convoke returns triumphant! (Granted it’s a bit easier than having to mint another ten new keywords.)

Meanwhile, I wait to see if the shocklands are returning, or if WotC will bring us something new in their stead. (Complete Nimbus Maze cycle?)

It's times like that these that I look at my pile of Harvest Seasons and think fondly of the future.

I can't wait to cast Death Mutation on this guy ;)

Although Death Mutation is CMC not power, you're probably not paying full price so it'd be worth it. What I really want is a Mercy Killing variant that says destroy rather than sacrifice ;)

A quick gatherer search for:
format = vintage and power >12 or toughness > 12

reveals:
Death's Shadow - 13/13
Emrakul, the Promised End - 13/13
Krosan Cloudscraper - 13/13
Ludevic's Abomination - 13/13
Withengar Unbound - 13/13
Emrakul, the Aeons Torn - 15/15
Worldspine Wurm - 15/15


so...yes.
