         Get a load of this guy(if he's even real):
        Rampaging Baloths
        Landfall-Whenever a land enters the battefield under your control, you may put a 4/4 green Beast creature token onto the battlefield.

         That landfall ability looks pretty sick. I hope they do this in Zendikar, but not necessarily this guy because I thoroughly believe he will never see constructed play.
         I would love to see something like:
         Landfall-Whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control, you may put a basic land from your hand onto the battlefield tapped.
         Now that could get crazy.
         I really hope it's a land-based set. That would be amazing. I'm almost willing to bet that a lot of it has to do with lands because of the reintroduction of the awesome full art basics.

         How the hell would that guy not see constructed play?

         I bet you any amount of many there are cards 10 times better than that one in this set, and it costs 6 mana for a creature that dies to everything. Granted, throwing out 4/4's every turn is awesome, but the 6 mana would kill it because you don't even immediately get the awesome 4/4's when you play him, unless of course you have panoramas out there......I just believe that there will be better guys out there than this.

         I guess you could play him and then play a land, doesnt use the stack and the ability would trigger before your opponent gets the chance to do anything.... although I agree he is probably garbage in constructed.

         It sounds like a creature that might see play in block constructed.
