Certainly not the worst card ever printed,
But there really isn't a reason they couldn't have made it an instant.

Underwhelming for a sorcery, would have been powerful but balanced as an enchantment.

@reapersaurus: No. Just... No. Thing is, combining Giant Growth and Assault Strobe would cost you two separate cards. Two cards which you may not have in your hand at the same time. Combining them in one card effectively gives you +1 card advantage and may open up four additional card slots in your deck to use for other cards, not to mention that this combination of effects is actually quite powerful. These advantages are worth an increased mana cost. But to print this card at your price would simply obsolete both Giant Growth and Assault Strobe in a Red or Green deck, and possibly a Green deck that splashes Red or vice versa. It would be, quite simply, what we call borderline broken.

Though I agree with what other commenters have said. This could at least have been an instant.

It's kind of like casting Assault Strobe while you have a Wild Defiance out.

Or, you could use Wrecking Ogre to give your attacker the same boost after going unblocked. And it's nearly uncounterable! And it doubles as a potential creature! Granted, Wrecking Ogre is a rare, so it's not surprising that it's better.

Wrecking Ogre says this card sucks.

Considering it's basically just a Double Cleave + Giant Growth it should at least be an instant or cost a little less.

I think it would be silly if you cast this card on a creature that didnt have either trample of flying. It's very situational, but when you put it on a creature like Deus of Calamity or Meglonoth, It can be Devastating.

Needs to be an instant. Either way for 6 mana - when used correctly this could mean game over.
