People do not seem to understand how sligh decks work. In that type of deck, this card would be a major component. Look at the rating increase as players understand how powerful this card can be.

2/5 after four votes? Are you people dense or something? Just look at Jackal Pup. This actually has upside compared to that.

this creature is played in red aggro decks (sligh, rdw, burn you name it) where your own life total doesnt matter. A 2/1 for R with a pump ability to keep it relevant in the late-game seems good.

This will terrify people soon. Underrated.

It's no goblin guide or vexing devil that's for sure.

Underwhelming as a red 1 drop. It doesn't do damage as soon as it hits the field, it makes the perfect burn removal target (oh hey, I kill your creature and burn you- yay 2 for 1!), and its firebreathing is too slow to be worth much.

1R AND 1 life for +1/0 is pathetic. R and 1 life for firebreathing would have made it quick enough to be playable. 1R and 1 life to give +2/0 firebreathing would have been acceptable as well.

As it is, it's an incredibly mediocre rare so it gets an incredibly mediocre score: 3/5

@MasterOfCruelties but that +1/+0 is everything.

I have done the math, he's ok. He will do some work in standard, but short of that his is pretty shit. In standard now there is enough 2/1 one drops to make him a iffy early drop and drawing him late game is basically a dead draw. He will one for one at minimum, and in that event you take more damage than not. Unblocked he deals n+2 damage and you lose n-2 life.

What I'm saying is watch him. He isn't an absolute tank and the rush beast people make him out to be. Jackal Pup was good in its day, but not so much now. I`d normally take Rakdos Cackler any day over him in standard. You won`t be blocking with the satyr anyways and if you can make a deck worth a damn you wont use the satyr as a sink until turn 5+, at which point you should have won. Be sceptical, but don`t take it as a horrible card. It is a shit rare, but not a shit card.

Some random guy after a game day event kept singing this card anthems of glorious praise and was willing to sell his child's soul to satan if I'd trade mine to him. I said "Sure!" and made off like a bandit, and I was even building an R/B aggro deck.

I know how the game works, and I don't care how good or bad this guy is... I dunno, I can't seem to work up any love for him for anything but his trade value. I ripped another one in my last pack, so I'll give him a shot... but until he's proven himself, he's on the chopping block!

It's Nantuko Shade, but crappier. Still a good card, 1 cmc less but 1 cmc more per pump and does damage to you. A good player doesn't care about damaging themselves if it will win them the game.
