Great card. Easy to convert into a lot of card advantage, especially with undying. Though its CMC hurts its usability in constructed some. 3.5/5

It's worth a one off in a lot of {G}/{R} decks. Not a card you can really crutch on in constructed, but it can absolutely change games.

While werewovles is the obvious choice, this can really shine in Vampire builds. Saving a Stromkirk Noble or getting a high level of value out of a Markov Blademaster can warrant a build. There is a Vampire ramp build out there with the Bloodlord of Vaasgoth still looking for a home.

In limited this card is one of the best buffs out there, and needs to be taken if you are playing these colors. The power level of having a buffing flashback should never be underestimated.

In Otto's defense, who expects trampling snakes?

Colossal might is a bad comparison. Thrill of the Hunt and Sylvan Might are much better ones. As a combat trick with flashback it's very playable in limited, but of these three the mana cost is the highest. It takes 7 open mana to threaten to do what Toth can do with two open mana. Still quite good at forcing damage onto players, though.

I have a casual goblin deck built around giving Warren instigator trample, while pumping him up...me thinks he'll like this very much. This is a nice card for limited, where trampling over chumps wins games. This card is a solid four, scary trampling snake eating Otto in his own home, decent art showing the satiated anaconda, three cost is a mite high (compare to Colossal Might) but flashback creates the card advantage, even at four mana. When you want trample it's right there....

Edit: who wastes their time down rating people? It's like "your anecdote about your experience displeases me! Rage rate!" small people...

Markov Blademaster loves this card. A lot.

If you like this card, consider Colossal Might.
