Fun fact: this is the only creature in Magic that can naturally block as many or more creatures than a monstrous Hundred-Handed One. It was also the first of Prophecy's Avatar cycle to get a new version in the Eighth Edition card frames (we're still waiting on Avatar of Will). It never quite made a big impact in constructed, not least because its discount condition is the most dangerous - if you're on three life, blocking everything coming at you might help, but you're still vulnerable to the Volcanic Hammer to the face. I can't rule out that there wouldn't be a situation where it wouldn't save your life, though. Nine toughness is enough to block up to eight creatures and live against some decks!
