In Theros, with all the bestow running around, a tapper is far better than most anywhere else. Do't underestimate this guy in limited.

I do so love the flavor here. "SUDDENLY, YOU ARE TACKLED BY A FRIENDLY DOGE!"

This is one of those cards where Hound seems a bit silly. R&D doesn't want Dog to be a creature type, but when we have such cuddly fellows as this guy being hounds. Also, tappers in Theros, it has been said, but they are good, even if they seem weak compared to Gideon's Lawkeeper.

As a casual player who mainly plays with commons and uncommons, even I find this to be quite expensive for what it does.

As it has been said, this creature's power is much much more appreciated in limited where "battleships" (i.e. creatures beefed up with enchantments) are predominant and removal is scarce, it shines quite brightly there.

3/5

People are waaayyyy underrating this in draft. "That damn well should be a 0 mana ability?" Get out of here. Sure, the body for the cost isn't huge, but an unconditional tapper at common is something that's been desperately needed in this format where enchantment-stacked 8/8s and larger frequently go unchecked.

This thing has done work for me in many a draft. Works especially well with WB life drain/pelting, but helps get a lot of other things through as well. The 2/2 body comes in handy when it needs to as well.

Solid all around, 3.5/5.

For a 4 mana creature, that damn well should be a 0 mana ability...

edit: Come on guys, haven't you ever heard of Minister of Impediments?
