Choose target creature you control. You gain life equal to that creature's power plus its thoughness.
"Other guilds say the Gruul are savages, no better than the beasts we live with. I say we've found friends wo won't stab us in the back." - Domri Rade

I'm quite sure that's not Domri.
I'm a definite fan of the art, but I can't help but feel that if you've got a creature big enough to make it worthwhile, you're probably winning.
Funny name...

Well, you could have an 8/8 in play while the opponent has a swam.
I play for fun

Bad card is bad
this is more of the "shoot I need one more turn" stall card.

I'd say it's more of a "mandatory garbage can filler" card. I'd sooner play an 18th or 19th or 20th land.....

ahhaha, you are pushing it. I follow the 17 lands rule, but it seems I get more than enough land 90% of the time (10% of the times I get 1 land)

I really like the flavor text of this card.
Heya everyone, here are my homebrew threads: (yes there is only one right now, but there are more to come!) And Let There Be Fish-Men: KUO-TOA
The bad: It's lifegain.
The good: Infinite potential.

But it's still lifegain.

Its not that good but atleast its trying something a bit different with that you gain life from both the power and toughness.

Though i like the art and the flavor text.

Agreed on all counts. Unlike http://community.wizards.com/go/thread/view/75842/29637571/GTC-ICD_Disciple_of_the_Old_Ways, the art features a female in somewhat revealing clothing w/o just coming off as soft porn meant to pander to a certain demographic. She's wearing breast-plate (not to be confused with a breastplate) but not in a suggestive position and her proportions are reasonable, unlike the silicone playboy model look we see so often in magic art. I know it's a controversial issue and many people like that kind of art, but I personally think it cheapens the game and paints the game in an embarrassing light when friends/family not familiar w/the game see cards like that.
that a descent gain especially in green

Hold on... Who is Rade referring to when he says "us"? Or does he refer to himself in 3rd Person Plural?
He's referring to the Gruul, plain and simple. He's evidently one of them and quite possibly a native of the plane like Vraska and Ral Zarek.

Hi, my name's Ghoultree, and here's 20 life for three mana. Feel free to drink that sudden surge of life out of this.

CURRENT EDH DECKS: Sek'kuar | Kraj | Teysa | Wort | Purphoros | Varolz | Reaper King | Rakdos | Isperia | Ultimus | Iroas | Macar | Roon | Marath | Kruphix | Karametra | Marchesa

include this in a chalice of life deck.
Unplayable.

You're really making mountains out of molehills.  No one's fapping to Magic cards, it's just art (and if they are, so what).  They're Gruul, they don't wear much.  Get over it.   
Aye. As long as we keep getting cards like Bomber Corps as well, I have no objection to the likes of Disciple of the Old Ways.

Objectification demeans the player base. The problem isn't even the lack of appropriate clothes, merely the way it is displayed.

I beginning to think that you people have never been to a beach before...or even a Victoria's Secret.

This, although he could just have joined the Gruul.

Heroes' Reunion wasn't played, don't expect this to see any play either.
Standard Pauper! (play it on MTGO)
I would play this as filler for a deck just so I could look/show off the picture. I think it is incredible.
Useful if you ever need to triple up on your Serra Avatar for whatever reason, and at instant speed to boot!
From pack to bin, with no play in between.

"We wlll kill them all."

I suppose it could be decent anti-boros tech in certain slow midrange fatty decks (particularly with a couple of creatures in the ruination wurm+ class), but otherwise nah.

In Modern, Felidar Sovereign.
In EDH, Felidar Sovereign, and you'd probably use a bunch of equipment to make it even bigger.
