This card is interesting in that it encourages you to attack with just one creature, and it encourages the opponent not to block it. When I was starting out, I played this guy with Errantry and dared opponents to block him. Think of it as oldschool red Exalted.

I like cards that "do a lot" for a little mana. This is one of them.

Basilisk Collar seems the better choice. I'd also force something to block it (e.g. Lure, Nemesis Mask, Provoke, etc). Or you could do it in reverse with Valor Made Real and Siren's Call. Oh yeah, 1WhiteBlueRed for a set of four cards to produce some bizarre cross between Plague Wind and Multani's Harmony!

It's easy to find a way to prevent the Swine-Rider from killing itself (or any other creature you want to keep alive). If they keep tapping all their creatures to avoid having to block (say, by attacking), Jangling Automaton should do the trick.

This card has lots of combos, like Lure and Light of Sanction.

This creature is a really... exalted kamikaze!
Not bad and very playable in certain decks and against weenies.
Besides and above all, this artwork rulez!

Basilisk Collar is great.

Imagine combining that with Scythe of the Wretched, though. Everyone is mine.

So, a card that effectively kills itself when it's blocked. Block with a fatty and there's no sweat. I'm sure there's a niche for it, but I don't see it yet.
