I don't play EDH, but this looks like a better Commander than Gishath. The EtB ability is very strong.

So you can use all abilities the turn you cast it? Nice. Too bad two of them are not very exciting.

Okay, the life gain, fine, but what is the other one? The Naturalize? Repeatable or mass Naturalizes are very strong in Commander.

Yes, Naturalize. I was speaking about Limited.

No one is going to assume you're talking about limited in a thread about a nine mana mythic legend (unless they look at the username)

I look at the username first :)

I would really love this to be Limited-playable. I am sick and tired of non-interactive, aggro environments, and want an environment where a nine-mana legend is not just an empty spot in the booster, but a thing you can build towards and make it count. Like Nicol Bolas in Hour.

This one is not nearly in the Bolas range, so it's very likely unplayable. For Limited.

Even if it's playable, it'd only appear once out of every five drafts. If you did get it, you could ramp into it with Knight of the Stampede, or at least side it in against a slow opponent like an Ascend deck.

It is tough to evaluate the value of a card you never draw. My most recent sealed-that-wasn't-a-prerelease I was thrilled to build my deck around The Scarab God. And when that sealed event ended, I still had not even drawn it once.
