Don't make me use momentary blink and have to flashback it, because by god I am having my 3/2 ox!

So... it's either a 3/2 for {2}{R}, something that occurs quite commonly, or a Lava Axe for {2} cheaper?
Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet!

I like the browbeat mechanic, but there is no way anyone's gonna do that. How the hell is a self respecting red player like me going to break this card?

The point of the choice cards is to give you an undercosted spell that gives your opponent the option to negate it for a hefty chuck of his life. This is not undercosted. This is a Goblin Roughrider without the relevant creature type and a major draw back. You don't think it's a draw back because taking 5 damage is always the wrong choice? Do you realize that people routinely pay 1 mana, 4 life, and a card to get rid of a single creature? I have experience with this card, I made a mono red choices deck back when these cards were printed (Longhorn Firebeast, Dwarven Driller, Molten Influence, Skullscorch, Blazing Salvo, Breaking Point, Browbeat). Trust me when I say this card is weak. I hope they bring back red choice mechanics, but I hope it's better executed the second time around.

Don't know why this card is rated so low. Why assume that your opponent will always make the right choice? Please reprint in a core set! I want to enjoy goofy 15-year-olds choosing to take the 5 damage at my local game store's draft/sealed.

Way overcosted for what it offers. This card should at least have had haste, that way it would be an immediate threat and an opponent may actually consider losing 1/4th of their life to get it off the board.

As it stands, no one will ever pay the life because they simply have no reason to. Play Oxidda Golem if you're doing monored, much more fun.

Now Longhorn Firebeast is all grown up.

This is using the mechanic wrong.
Vexing Devil is using the mechanic correctly.
