good creature for mono-red decks.

I liked it way better when it the warrior was a swaggerin' guy made of flowstone. Now it's just some hulking nord with a rock-on-a-stick. Admittedly, less intimidating.

The Oracle on this card is interesting, looking at its subtypes, for a couple of reasons:

1) It is a soldier and a warrior - Wizards has tended to keep these tribes seperate, flavourfully, in the recent past. This card was updated from its 9th Ed. printing to make its name-tribe relationship more intuitive, but it is still not something you see on many cards. Putrid Warrior and Wingbeat Warrior look like they were "oracled" for the same reason.

2) It is a human. That might make sense based on the 9th Ed. art, but take a look at the original printing. The art AND the flavour text from Gerrard would both suggest that this creature's original concept was a soldier made of actual sandstone (and keep in mind that Tempest was the first set in which we saw flowstone). It's a case of an update that is non-intuitive if you only owned Tempest copies and you found out about it late... (see all)

casting cost of 2 or 2 would be much better, or even a casting cost of RedRedRed

Untapped mountains can be a deterrent or evasion in this case.

He was never made of flowstone. He was made of sandstone. If he was made of flowstone, his ability would be +1/-1 instead of +1/+0.
