It starts out as an already fair 3/3 for three,
gets progressively larger with every land that
goes into your graveyard from ANYWHERE, and
ensures that any land you would draw goes there
instead while you draw nothing but spell after
spell! Yes, there is the downside of you having
to make do with the lands you have in play when
it hits or finding other ways of drawing extra
lands, but hiw is that not worth an efficiently
costed creature that gets progressively larger,
and guaranteed amnesty from mana flood?
3/3 for three mana? Sounds good. Gets bigger as
turns go by? Sounds good. Gets bigger when you
nuke something with Shard Volley or send a
locale to oblivion with Ghost Quarter? Sounds
good. This guy's no Terravore, but he does a
decent impression of one. He may end up being
better in Extended than in Standard, but he will
be played somewhere. Expect it.

It gets huge fast, it's very combo-able (Scapeshift,
Horizon Canopy etc.), it makes every card drawn
in the draw phase a business spell and all for
the efficient price of 3 mana. Automatic 4
copies for any aggro deck running red, which
should be most of them.
In limited, you might need the lands, so it's a
bit weaker here. Money rare though for those
kinds of drafters out there.
is Countryside Crusher. For 3 mana you get a 3/3
that during your upkeep, you reveal lands in
your library andf put them in the graveyard to
give him +1/+1 each time you draw into a land.
Of course, this guy can basically kill your
chances of playing any lands once he comes out
so it's extremely risky as your opponent will
quickly gain advantage over you spell wise if
you just plop him down. Pair him with Life from
the Loam if you play Extended or Crucible of
Worlds if you don't to name a few. Just make
sure you can play everything in your deck before
he comes out.
