trust me, unless you've played with him, you probably underestimated him. at the prerelease I killed a player in one turn by bloodrushing this and a scorchwalker onto a slaughterhorn, dealing 22 damage.

Sure, a 5-mana 3/3 with double strike is not all that impressive. But to be able to grant +3/+3 and double strike to a creature at instant speed by an ability that can't be easily countered is downright sickening.

Moment of absolute glory in limited: cipher a Stolen Identity onto it, then get 2 tokens every turn.

He's expensive, but that's because he'd be kind of OP if he wasn't. a 3/3 doublestriker is nothing to sneeze at. Making his bloodrush just as much as his CMC is very fair, because giving an unblocked creature a boost AND double strike is just evil. He's expensive, but worth. Honestly, I like him more than Skarrg Goliath, both for playability in bloodrush and regular casting. Definitely a good lategame card.

Amazing bloodrush, stick on an unblocked Malignus to win

I pulled this in a draft on Friday. I may have only gone 2-2 that night, but it was 100% worth it when I bloodrushed with this monster to swing for 20 and killed my opponent in one turn, when he definitely would have otherwise won the game. This thing is a limited BOMB.

"Battalioned Legion Loyalist? What's the worst that could happen?"

This thing consistently ends games from so far away that the opponent isn't even doing the 'How much can he boost it?' math. Of course, even if they are, you usually get some favourable trades and chump blocks just because it's in your deck somewhere.

Fun Fact: In Godo, Bandit Warlord EDH, this card lets him swing for 24 general damage.

This + thorn elemental = win, LOL.

20 damage to the face!

I've killed people with both him AND his Bloodrush.

He's bloody insane. At first he looks like an unimpressive Rare next to the crazy multicoloured stuff, but he's found a way into my Warrior Deck after one-hit-KO-ing a Zombie player.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
