When Alliances came out, this was THE most hyped card in the set. Kind of funny, looking back. Today it may be playable in some kind of Hellbent deck, but it's nowhere near the powerhouse it once was. Creatures sure have come a long way.

I love this card because it is very fast. I also prefer it to Juzam Djinn (although I've never played with Juzam). Also one hardly notices discarding a card when you have Jayemdae Tome in play.

Wulfsten - Balduvian Horde should have trample or HASTE? Are you kidding? Jeez, kids today.

Seriously, it's a pretty balanced card as it is, but giving it the ability to attack on turn summoned would be pushing it into ridiculous territory. On another note, do you guys remember how Inquest magazine drooled all over this one, considering it the red Juzam Djinn? Ah, memories. :->

I remember when this card first came out it was thought of as an awesome card. Not so much now; it would fit in nicely in a madness deck though.

Interesting how much worse this card is nowadays than it was back then.

It's still decent though, in casual red midrange aggro.

@Moleland: Why the heck would anyone want to put crap cards in a deck? oO

Although i admit, it would feel good to dump something like Wood Elemental, Mudhole or Pale Moon.
Could be made for trolling in casual so you can say you defeated your opponent thanks to a bunch of crap cards...

Should have haste or trample, that would make it a really exciting card. As is, it's a mediocre card, and only in a deck constructed to take advantage of its drawback.

I would rather take a lava axe to the face then pitch a card at random :(

In red, a 5/5 for 4 is a rare sight, even with this kind of drawback. Bringing this guy out turn 7 could give you a 5/5 and a 4/4 trampler for 7 as well. 4/5
