Ravenous Baloth

Amazing P-T to cost ratio, gives you 4 life points to boot, can effectively counter any spell that targets a Beast you control (if your opponent tries to Lightning Helix it, you can respond by sacrificing it and then
you gain life instead of them. It even makes a great
Lord for a tribe that's always got members in Standard. And that's why I voted for it, because it's important for the Core Set to support tribal decks.

Constructed- 4

Ravenous Baloth - Until Ravnica gave us Loxodon Hierarch, the Baloth represented perhaps the best 4-drop green creature in contemporary Magic. The only flaw (which was corrected with the Elephant) was that you could only get life out of it by throwing it (or another one of your beasts) away. If that's the biggest problem with a creature, then it's a good day. I fully expect Baloth to be granted to us with 10th edition.

Ravenous Baloth

As for the Wizards of the Coast 10e voting, I admit to Ravenous Baloth being a sentimental favorite of mine. I used to play a Beast deck back in the day, and while it wasn't always top on the FNM tournaments, it won a fair deal of the time, and was a lot of fun when it did go off. But what makes Baloth good is having a good choice of Beasts to support it. Soooo... considering that, if 10th has a lot of good Beasts, then my vote is for Ravenous Baloth. If not.... then see tomorrow.
