Wow. Such a simple card. The addition of trample is fantastic.
It is one of those cards that you are shocked that it didn't already exist as soon as you see it.

Awesome card. The double red isn't much of a disadvantage, since in limited this will be a game-ender, and you'll probably have the red you need at that point if you're seriously in red at all. I landed a Morkrut Banshee with the morbid trigger at 11 life at the prerelease, and the next turn the guy played this on the Banshee to kill me. It was the trample that did it too.

Take this, and infernal plunge. Free kill spell combo you can pick up usually in draft.

People don't seem to notice this gains control of TARGET CREATURE. That can be yours. At worst this card is 1C2R Untap target creature. It gains haste and trample until end of turn.

Used it on my own Skirsdag Cultist that had Claustrophobia.
Then sac'd itself for Game Over!
The double red makes it harder to splash - which is GREAT when you are the Red Drafter!

Really good. I agree with poeple who said that a more color-intensive cost isn't much of a drawback, specially since you'll probably want to cast it later game when there are bigger creatures for you to borrow. This and Act of Treason, while probably not 4-ofs in most red decks, are nice effects to have - because sometimes its much better to steal a blocker and swing with it than to burn it.
Art is great too. Pretty much everything Raymond Swanland does is amazing (search for some of his non-MTG works in google images, they're great as well). I think I like Eric Deschamps' Act of Treason better, though.
Oh yeah, and here's some useless trivia: with Innistrad's release, there are exactly 365 cards with "haste" in their rules text, one for each day of the year.

Looks like a Balefire Dragon. Wouldn't want that turned against me.

Someone that went undefeated in a draft for awhile had an Olivia Voldaren in their deck. I eventually was paired against him myself and was unlucky enough to face Olivia, who ended up stealing a couple of my creatures. The game dragged out to where I had eight available mana since he got pretentious and started toying with me instead of finishing me off like he could have. Both of us were playing Black/Red decks, which meant that I could use Olivia's abilities as well if I had control of her.

Luckily for me, I had a Traitorous Blood in my hand, which I used on his Olivia, gaining control of my creatures again, though only until the end of the turn. Then I paid 3BlackBlack, used Olivia's second ability and targeted herself so I gained control of her (along with my creatures I just got back) permanently. From that point onwards, the game had completely turned around in my favor, and my opponent was not happy with me at all.

in the pre-release this won me 2 games, once when i used it to untap a creature i had stolen with Olivia Voldaren, and once when i used it to steal my opponent's Tree of Redemption, then sacked it to my Disciples of Griselbrand, gaining me 13 life and leaving the opponent vulnerable to my forces. I was always happy to dray this, and look forward to drafting them in the future.
