Troll Ascetic - Mirrodin. Rare
1GG: Creature - Troll Shaman
Troll Ascetic can't be the target of spells or abilities your opponents control.
1G: Regenerate Troll Ascetic.
It's no coincidence that the oldest trolls are also the angriest.

One of the best 3 drops in the game. 3 for a 3/2 that can regenerate for a cheap cost and can't be targeted by your opponent. The 2 toughness really hurts even if it can't be targeted since it can easily be chump blocked and Nekrataal hurts. However, regenerating covers it up and IMO this is a staple in Mono Green.

The Duck's Rating: 3.5/5

A great card, a 3/2 body and regeneration are good and the untargetability gives it protection from kill spells.The two toughness is a downside, but why would you attack with this if you don't have two mana available. 4/5

Not a big fan of green but this card is very good. I have to agree with klducks about the staple in mono green. 4/5
