Kinda good card,good for any mana deck ,or just in a normal red burn deck.
as evrey otehr this one can die to removal ,it will remove more cards before itself is gone . so i think this is kinda good card,nice to have .

Personally I use the fact that he's a shaman in my red/green mana engine deck (along with Sachi, Daughter of Seshiro: http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=80254). Not only does he become a 4/4 mana-generating hero, but you can really sink a lot of mana into his damage-dealing ability if you use Orochi Leafcaller at the same time (http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=50319). {:¬)

Wow, previewed Innistrad mythic rare Olivia Voldaren steals some thunder from this guy (though there are many differences). Here she is:

Legendary Vampire
3/3 Flying
1Red: Olivia Voldaren deals 1 damage to another target creature. That creature becomes a Vampire in addition to its other types. Put a +1/+1 counter on Olivia Voldaren.
3BlackBlack: Gain control of target Vampire for as long as you control Olivia Voldaren.

this card is Awesome!
You can kill all his troops with his ability!
Its true his second ability isnt used much,
but against spirit deks theirs shoulshift taktick doesnt work.
In almoast all cases he is GAME WINNER!
Absolute 5/5

He's actually really effective as an EDH general. Yeah, it takes a little while to actually win with him, but in the meanwhile, you can take out all of their creatures (including their general, repeatedly) to buy you that time. And if you're on a budget, you can always just stick a bunch of extra mountains in your deck, since you'll always have use for more mana (though obviously, it helps to have more mana acceleration, and equipment that triggers on the creature doing damage).

He's a really good EDH general. Useful with anything that gives you more mana, or more damage. Mana Flare, Gratuitous Violence, Furnace of Rath, Dictate of the Twin Gods, Caged Sun, Gauntlet of Power, Gauntlet of Might, Extraplanar Lens, Heartstone, and Quest for Pure Flame.

With all of these cards on the field and active, one Mountain can tap for 5 Red Mana, utilizing Heartstone for R -> 1 Damage instead of 1R -> 1 Damage, then doubling the damage for Furnace, Gratuitous, Dicatate and then Quest, will lead to a total of 16 damage per 1 damage for 1 red. So 80 damage per Mountain. Not even Koth's ultimate can do that. Give him infect to make him kill an opponent quicker without all of those cards on the field. Give him lifelink to keep yourself alive. auto... (see all)
