it has a cool effect, especially if you have some weak, low cost spells to play.

This card reminds me of my old UG Herd Gnarr deck I used to have. It worked by attacking with a Herd Gnarr that was pumped by repeatedly playing Shrieking Drake. This card is way better, though, because you can equip it to a creature that already has trample or other useful evasion, then sink U into the drake to pump it. I guess Leering Emblem was designed with cascade in mind, though.

Perhaps something like Gloryscale Viashino with Leering Emblem attacks after a Violent Outburst cascades into a Colossal Might. It looks like you are attacking with a 3/3 creature, but then hit them with the combat trick to turn him into a 18/15 trampler. Pray for no removal though.

Theres that U to cast flying enchantment that you can bounce to you hand.
Coupled with the "whenever you cast an enchantment put a +1+1 counter on all your creatures", and a few other drawing/enchantment/life-gaining loving combo cards and you have a few very huge creatures for almost no mana.

Put it on a Fabled Hero and go nuts with View from Above.

I always hav been fond of using Grinning Ignus for red storm, and it seems like that would work well for this card as well, in addition giving a +2 temporary manaboost if the card is already in play when the turn started.

An extremely fun card to combine with Kiln Fiend decks. Distortion Strike in addition to some cheap spells like Assault Strobe or Double Cleave gives you a big guy that can take a hit and dish it out.

There's got to be a way to break this in a Storm deck, equipping Dark Confidant or a Tombstalker or something... to kill, you need the same number of spells as Tendrils of Agony, but they could be spread over multiple turns, attacking for 12 one turn and 8 the next...

Ah well, I thought the same thing about Storm Entity. Combining the two seems like it should have potential, but...
