Default Niblis of the Breath

Am I crazy for thinking this card is legacy playable?

I kind of like it, but I may be having a hard time drawing the line between my love of this card in limited and its playability in legacy.

You may lol, but you know it untaps things as well as tapping them? There are infinite combos, for example with High Tide. Or you can for example untap a creature that taps for lots of mana (like Elvish Archdruid), and then untap that creature with Niblis, and then use Umbral Mantle on the Niblis for infinite mana.

The main problem that I run into, of course, is that Gideon's Avenger is so good against it.

I have lost so many games to gideon's avenger!
No but seriously, people run scryb ranger and quirion ranger in combination with knight of the reliquary, mother of runes, and mangara of corondor.
Niblis has the added benefit of providing a flying body for equipment. In a pinch Niblis could also be used to tap down an opposing beasty.

I don't think it is insanely good, but I kind of like it.
