Oh how badly I wish this were instant speed. Nonetheless I can see this hitting HARD for the win.

I like this card.

While most buff effects are rightly green cards, buffs that focus purely on damage output feel more red than green. This card captures much of the devastating ability of Overrun with a red spin and a similar casting cost. Overrun (and similar green cards) are often a bit better, but this card is a bit cheaper on colored mana and still capable of winning games. Red rarely gets decent combat spells - we usually end up with half a Giant Growth at twice the price - so it's nice to see something like this. I hope it sticks around.

Does anyone else keep reading this as "CLEVER Riot"? So annoying. :P

Let's not forget that
A: This is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay more splashable than Overrun
B: This synergizes very nicely with cards like these

What a cleaver little card

Compare to Overrun, which buffs the creatures and give them trample, Cleaver Riot is a little lacking, since it depends heavily on the number of creatures and their initial power to deal the blow, and if you have numerous creatures they tend to be smaller, so double strike provided wouldn't be as power as the +3/+3 trample of Overrun.

I'm sorry; I tried this in Limited. I wanted it to work. I wanted it to be a fabled windmill slam against my foes! It was not. It was a dead card most of the time with the rare exception when it was a very expensive Double Cleave

Cyberium.....*sigh*....that's what LORDS are for. :P

Warren Instigator -> a pair of Goblin Chieftains.

Good flavor but too expensive. Compare with Assault Strobe, which only affects one creature but costs Red instead of 4Red. Maybe if this also gave +1/+0...

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
