Quote from Gashnawforgive me but where is the benefit? Forgive me but what, You mill for a basic land okay... Um.. Howling mine?
Seriously whats going on with him, why is he so amazing. i do not see the proper combo. What if you mill out the combo pieces you need due to a land in the wrong spot? And if you don't run basic lands. Congrats you forced a lock and they kick you out so they can play. I see one use for him. mono green heavy land.
Quote from hamberglarHow many tutors can you cram in to get off on turn one to grab hermit?
Quote from GashnawReally I do not see Hermit druid useful in EDH.
Quote from ÆthergineerThe Aperture Science Center would like to remind you that the internet isn't a competition, but if it was, you would be winning.

Quote from SyphonIf you weren't male, I'd ask you to marry me.
Quote from GashnawHow does bloodghast Help? You are getting no land, it remains in your graveyard. You have to have a land in your hand (Which is understandably, provided you dropped him turn 2.
To add to it, You need to avoid a forced draw.
Plus, wouldn't you have locked yourself. It says reveal the top card of your deck. Not draw or anything, do you stop when your deck is gone? Or are you suppose to keep milling even after 0, i mean you still have not revealed your basic land. If you have any recursion at all, it doesn't activate until you have revealed a land which you have not.

Quote from hamberglarWow, thanks guys. This was a great discussion. I totally get it now.
One last question: What's Scion got to do with it? Is it just for the five colors? Or is he just inconspicuous, so people don't auto assume you're playing hermit and leave counter mana up?
Never mind. I found the backup wincon.
Another one that works well is to stack scions ability to make him a moltensteel dragon, pump, then make him skithyrix.
Quote from bobthefunnyYup. It doesn't change zones. It simply holds a sign up saying "I'm not here!" if anything comes looking for it.
