At first glance I thought this card sucked, until I really did the math... well worth sac'ing lands for that type of damage

Hey... he's good! A playable Minotaur! I never thought I'd see the day. ;)

Not double strike. Double strike = two hits = two lands go boom. And that's generally not good.

Otherwise, love the Jund-esque art syle. It's gritty and intense. Say what you will about Wizards, they know how to assign artists to a setting.

trample is not a good idea, as you have to sac a land even if only one point of damage gets through, first strike is fantastic on him, and to be honest i see him more as reds defense: it deters enemies from attacking cause they know their creatures will get killed

Ah, this creature is awesome.

I think sligh will be viable in Zendikar, and this guy fills the 3-mana creature slot quite well. A red creature for 3 mana for FIVE power? Oh yes. Not only does he win in 4 swings, he's going to kill just about anything he blocks.
...And I thought Ashenmoor Gouger was good.

this guy turn 3, lightning talons turn 4 you got a 8/2 first strike blocker for 6 mana. yeah as a red player I can find something better to with this mana but if you feel you need some fire power and you don't have that much money because both of these cards are commons. If you got the money you can get some goblin assaults and Eldrazi Monuments and make your opponent cry

Get this creature to gain some trample or double strike!

This guy is awesome in limited. 5 power for 3 mana. You don't get much better than that. If you're ahead, you swing and do 5 damage and win the game faster, at the expense of one measly land, and if you're behind this can easily block and trade with other creatures.

Outside of limited... well, he's alright, but ball lightning is better in monored, and there are just better 3 drops in general.

He's a real powerhouse for a 3 drop, especially in red. 4.5/5.
