This should be in knights vs dragons! But, in which deck?? ;)

A fair and decent creature without the pump, and a hilariously oversized beater with it.
I like it.
I like it a lot.

It's not so bad for the base creature (2 power first striker for 3 is pretty normal), but it'd be much more playable as RR instead (like the knight range - White Knight, Black Knight, Knight of the White Orchid etc). The ability is nothing special - a big boost, but it requires a lot of very specific mana and a deck with access to all colours. Not to mention your opponent can hold back some spot removal for when you try and activate it, causing you to waste 5 mana for the turn.

Not bad, but it'd only see play in limited. In constructed there are just too many better creatures.

3CMC monored for a 2/2 with first strike is awesome. Don't know about the pump though.

This is a good card for the mana and I think the ability stacks you can have a massive creature to hit with.

Great in coalition decks, like mine! Or it could use some help from Kaliedostone or Composite Golem.

Easily one of my favorite cards in my all red deck. I have this card plus a kaliedostone. With kaliedostone you get one of each color of mana making it easy to use this card... If you can get kaliedostone.

This is a fair card without the pump. Hopefully, most decks will be able to do more with the 5 mana.

I really love the design of this card. It is my favorite color plus it is simple as a 2/2 first striker but with the amazing pump you get a 7/5 flying, first strike, trampler!

I have to agree with zevilmustache, I love the concept, but spending 5 mana a turn to keep it pumped up doesn't work for me, I'd rather be spending that mana doing something else. I was lucky enough to get this card and paragon of amesha in one pack, and I still play them in some of my casual decks.
