For Glare's sake, here's an official ICD thread, and because I haven't seen the full image posted anywhere.  Tada!

Giant Adephage
Creature - Insect (M)
Trample
Whenever ~ deals combat damage to a player,  put a token onto the battlefield that's a copy of ~.

This is EXTREMELY lazy design with Utvara Hellkite in the previous set.
New thread, still buggy!
It's your typical "boring green beater" but with a funny little twist that turns the game in an uphill battle if it ever connects.
Stylish but not too powerful.

It costs 7 instead of 8, so more likely to be cast. And green gets to use it.
So... Was never a fan of Godsire, even though I quite like fatties. It has a mythic feel, but meh- It just isn't as cool as good ole Deadbridge Goliath in the Insect camp either.

Yep.  Since it wasn't listed with the ICd prefix in the thread title, it's easy to miss for people looking for new cards.  I was trying to make a failsafe, since Glare had already missed it when updating the ICD thread.

Yeah, either way linking it in here since many people already saw it and commented on it.  At first I thought I was going crazy "I knew I saw this card have a thread, but my comments are in here, what is going on?".
Okay, let's do this:

Cooler than [C]Essence of the Wild[/C]? Yeah
Cooler than [C]Vorapede[/C]? Definitely not, Vorapede is awesome.
Cooler than [C]Craterhoof Behemoth[/C]? Craterhoof enters the battlefield and wins, this does not.
Cooler than [C]Elderscale Wurm[/C]? Maybe just as cool, being a huge insect is pretty awesome.
Cooler than [C]Worldspine Wurm[/C]? I prefer Adephage over the Wurm because he's actually able to be played, Wurm is crazy EDH card though especially for Mayael decks.

Nice shoutout to Giant Solifuge and Spawnwrithe. I just wish it was as playable as either of those cards. Clearly a nigh-unbeatable bomb in limited.

You are not correct. In fact, I will go as far as to say that you are incorrect!

That is a lovely painting of Richard Garfield. It really brings out his feminine side.
Its not that bad it isnt a inspiring design but it works, but i think the hellkite is better then this considering you could essentially have haste on the ability if you have a dragon out already. Same end goal but I can see this being really good with trostani.

Come erlier for costing less and bing green.
Makes a copy of itself, so the copy will also generate copies

It's 7/7 with Trample.

Not  excited about it, just didn't felt it was totally fair assumption.

Wow, awesome! Another green mythic that caters to my inner TIMMY!

Yeah, i couldnt think of any better then what i wrote in the other thread.
I would love to be a pychologist in Ravnica.  So many people would be absolutely batty about giant insects

It's certainly cool and could be a nice reanimation target.

I hope I get to successfully deal combat damage to a player in Limited with this. XD

With Cordyceps-esque parasites growing out of them at that.

If you get to turn it sideways, then that's pretty likely

xD Weird as it sounds, even in constructed, if you get to untap with it and turn it sideways with a declared attack it will almost assuredly do atleast 1 point of combat damage and clone itself at which point the game degenerates into "Wrath or no"... Kind of makes me want to build an obscene :G::B: Control list that kills everything and trades stuff, and then drops one of these guys onto the board to stare cross-eyed at the guy across the table.

high costed, green beater. I think its outshined by most of the green beater options already out there.

                                                                                                                                                                                        <----- Loser.

I definitely prefer Worldspine Wurm. Flavor and playability in Legacy builds both make it much better than this. Frankly, this seems like it should've been a rare.
