When bad cards happen to good art.
a 4/4 for 4R would have been blah enough, but why add its bad ability without compensating it? 3R or 2RR would have made this card.

This demonstrates Wiz emerging philosophy that common cards are suppose to suck and that rares are suppose to rockGreat Sable Stag or really rock Baneslayer Angel...It good for selling booster packs...bad for stacks and stacks of useless commons

I hope this something they don't develop further. Every card should have at least some utility, and no card should be flat out worst then another. But....money

Alternately, they're so reckless in battle that they never survive very long.

Hate those types of cards. Always think (maybe its true, maybe not) that abilities like "always have to block/attack" or "can't block/attack" is for reducing CMC. Only problem is if abilities like those reduce cost by 1 then normal 4/4 Human Berserker should cost 5Red and that's just plain crazy.

I agree with Outlaw. However I see how this isnt always possible.
For instance if this card was a beast, or a goblin, it may make it useable in the corresponding decks.
However you'd never be able to have anything other than goblins and beasts if this is the logic they persued. So they have to mix it up. And that means a few less popular combinations.

Remember when wizards or merfolk didnt really have anything going for them to warrant having a deck based around them? It was just a creature type that you gave to blue creatures.
Well now you could probably build quite a good mechanic around them.
Just like Scarecrows and Vampires have started to come into their own.

Would have been something to consider if they had Haste, but...

My co-worker & I usually draft when we buy any boosters & I can't even tell you how many times this card was taken AFTER the land & token card. Its not completely horrible it just sux. Boo this card everybody.

I'm sure their flavor text is very accurate.

People will always find something to complain about. If Wizards started printing ONLY good cards, people would complain that there's "No skill involved anymore" and "Every noob can be competitive now" and "Sealed formats aren't fun anymore" or something.

You *choose* to play this game. No one forces you.

Wizards wants to sell booster packs. That's why they print worthless garbage. It is mind-boggling that after all these years, they still fail to realize that people don't like throwing money away. If i were to open a booster and got a bunch of good cards from it, i'd want to buy more packs to get more useful cards. Unfortunately, that's never the case. Thank God that third parties sell singles. I just got four veteran armorsmiths for a dollar; i'd probably have to buy a hundred dollars worth of boosters for the same playset, 90% of which would be throwaway garbage like the berserkers here. I guess Wizards is satisfied with people only buying boosters for drafts.

If you want to sell more, satisfy the consumer. It's really very simple, but since they've been doing this from the beginning, my hopes aren't high. At least they stopped with the nigh-political load of doublespeak they've used as reasons for printing garbage cards; my eyes rolled so far up that I saw my o... (see all)
