Most of the Adapt creatures probably won’t find much play in EDH, so this is just a side ability tacked onto an already really abusable and versatile card. I think Mystic Snake is better because it has a less restrictive mana cost, though some players may be of the opinion that the additional green symbol is worth an additional point in power.
