I play this guy in a GRW deck as the centerpiece. I play this guy turn three with a Trace of Abundance. Next turn I play a land then slap a Spirit Link on him then hit him with Colossal Might and then a Double Cleave. Let me tell you the look on your opponent's face when you swing with a 13/9 Double Strike Trample Lifelink is GREAT! Not to mention the 26 life you gain on turn 4

I remember going against this in a triple Alara Reborn draft. In a format where every single spell is multicolor he will destroy you. He destroyed me anyway :(

My main problem with this guy is the manacost. You're going to need either a lot of land search or a lot of hybrid lands to support a 3-color deck. If you've got the dual lands to support it, then this card is awesome, however this card starts losing power when you're running a lot of green (mono colored) land search.

Why aren't viashinos lizards?

I have this one deck that focuses on multicolored cards, and this guy is BEAST in it. Violent Outburst cascading into Collosal Might, resulting in a 14/11 Viashino? Yes, please! This card may not be the best for competitive play, but in casual decks, he can dominate the battlefield, especially if you give him some sort of protection, like Squee's Embrace.

Don't compare this to Kiln Fiend. This goes in a completely different deck, as it works better with creatures and auras than Kiln Fiend does, while that card works better with instants and sorceries than this card does.

Gloryscale Viashino may not be the best card ever, but what matters is that it has its own niche in the game. I think that people should rate it based on how it performs in that niche.
