Ha, the ruling uses the term "chunks of damage"

With only its rather fragile 3 toughness counting against it, this is a MASSIVELY overlooked card for white EDH.

What a powerful ability! What a steep pricetag!

I never played Onslaught limited, but this looks like pure gold in that environment. I cannot, however, see a 3/3 for 6 mana with a similarly expensive activated ability making it into Constructed, no matter how powerful said ability might be.

The activation costs 6 because it redirects damage the next time you'd be dealt damage. Combat damage is dealt at one time. Therefore, you can redirect all combat damage that you took to another player. If you don't believe me, look it up. It is that rigged.

And, no, the activation cost should not be lowered, lol. Any less than six mana to activate and it would be played in every deck. The mana cost of the creature and the weak 3 toughness body gives this creature the rating of 3.5/5. It reminds me of Cho-Manno. It only shines in the right deck.

I love this card. Has saved me multiple times.

Agreed, they should have both lowered cmc and activation cost of this guy. Adding a "Activate this ability only once each turn" clause to prevent abuse shouldn't have been a mess to do either.
When playing Onslaught block-constructed, you won't stand a chance against goblins with this guy i guess, though...

Needs flash... wait, that would only make it cost 12 altogether! Yeah, powerful, but pretty much too expensive to ever actually use.
