Potentially useful but ultimately underwhelming.

Compares a little unfavorably to Madrush Cyclops, colors notwithstanding.

Wow, this is disappointing.

A haste enabler you can cast as early as turn six. With 3 toughness.                Good one, Wizards.

Because the lategame is exactly when you want your creatures to have haste.
Especially when you have to take the risk of losing the Cyclops to a Lightning Bolt, Naturalize or heck even Eye Gouge.

To quote the flavor text from that other haste-enabling Cyclops from Alara: "Death comes in the blink of an eye."

So yeah, the fury this Cyclops sends out seems anything but eternal.
Unless we're talking about the frustration that comes with playing this card, or even just looking at it.

I feel like this is Wizards' prankish reaction to players saying that they would have prefered Archetype of Aggression to work with haste instead of trample. (Not that I'm complaining about that card, though.)

Yeah, turn six is exactly when I need haste.

Haste so late in the game, I can't see how R&D could be so *takes glasses off*... shortsighted

A typical 2 star card, look interesting, but it cost too much for 6 mana - and if you build an aggro deck - you don't have much cards on turn 7.
Creatures have haste is great, but very situational - it might help out in a long close game in limited.
2 stars card.

Underwhelming? Sure.
Overpriced? Yeah.
Too easy to kill? Oh yes.
Flipping amazing in foil? Oh yes.
