Ooh if the giant just had haste...
Still a good card though, instant creatures at no (immediate) cost is always good.

Meh a 4/4 with flash, psuedo haste (Due to flash), isn't a creature spell, is comboable etc.. seems fine for 5. The idea is in a close game, drop him, block an offending */4- and win it next turn.

Goblin Bombardment
Altar of Dementia
Hamletback Goliath + Soul's Fire
Kyren Negotiations
Etc, Etc

Who says you have to swing with them? There are so many ways to use creatures to kill your opponent without having to attack with them. Besides, if you're running U/R, shouldn't you have a counterspell or 6 anyway? Who cares about Fog or Holy Day? Lol.

@Just1Micky
what do you mean Bazaar Trader??? Your opponent would gain control of your 4/4 creature and YOU would still have to pay the 4R or you lose. The spell says you have to pay, not the creature. It would not matter if you cast this, got the creature and took a crap on the table, your still going to have to pay. No matter what, if this spell resolves, you better be ready to pay that 5 mana or lose the game. (Unless ya got something that says you can't lose the game).

Hive mind and Djinn Illuminatus are fun creative uses for this otherwise mediocre (and dangerous, you opponent could do something sneaky here!) card. I mean... I guess having a blocker is nice? I am not impressed.

I remember thinking up a possible, but unlikely 1st turn win with this card in standard at one point.
Opening hand of:
4 Pact of the Titan
Leyline of the Meek
Surge of Zeal
Mountain

Leyline of the Meek comes into play for free.
Turn 1: Cast all Pact of the Titan spells. Mountain. Cast Surge of Zeal on one of the giant tokens giving them all haste, and alpha strike for the victory.

hive mind combo is pretty decent.

Raymond Swanland needs to do more Magic cards. I really hope he plays as much a role in Scars of Mirroden block as he did in Zendikar.

Djinn Illuminatus doesn't work that well with grapeshot silleh. The replicate spells are copied, no casted, so they don't count towards the storm. The Mäss Hysteria works rather well, so long as your opponent doesn't cast fog.
