Extraordinarily weak. 3 mana to give a single creature trample is laughably weak. 3 and a Green makes you wonder why your not using Rancor or Primal Rage. Even in draft I don't see many possible uses for this. Why its an uncommon is beyond me. It should have untapped the creature or given it +1/+1 or something similiar. Doesn't even work well with Storm Crow.

Is this the most useless of the cycle? I think so, closely followed by Pearl Shard.

They couldn't think of anything else, so they printed this. That said, how many of you have found themselves thinking an Artisan of Kozilek needed trample? It's harder to find a non instant non sorcery trample card. Even garruk is one-time. (or every couple turns).

Its not particularly strong, but it does stop your beefy creatures from being blocked by a 1/1 token and becoming useless. I can see plenty of uses, though I agree, it should have been a common.

Just use Primal Rage instead.

This could have been Dragon Blood, and instead we got War Chariot.

Easily the worst of the cycle - Pearl Shard is actually pretty damn good.

Uncommon? Really?

If it were common it wouldn't encourage the same kind of disgust.

Part of a five card cycle:

Pearl Shard
Crystal Shard
Skeleton Shard
Granite Shard
Heartwood Shard <-- You are here

I think it should have at least passed out +1/+1 and trample. The +1/+1 would have made it passably useful, while the "and trample" would have added some interest to an otherwise dull effect.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
