Shame on you people.......not once did I see a lightning bolt.

The three toughness is a major dealbreaker, but if you can cast it with both of its abilities online, it makes for a damn good Ball Lightning variant.

My first foil cards (got a playset on the cheaps when I was quite new.) I love this guy, the artwork is badass, the efficiency is fantastic, he works perfects and incurve with Trace of Abundance for a t3 beater that requires immediate removal. Keep your Vines of Vastwood around for either a massive brutal pump (9 damage + 9 life, an 18 point swing!) or to block that removal in a timely manner.

Works excellent with the Naya-matter 5 power things, like Spearbreaker or similar (the first strike one..)

I use this guy in a deck where I ramp with Trace of Abundance and it's awesome because you can drop him turn three and get those pumps. He's a great way to give yourself some room to build up because of his life link. And if he's removed it's no biggy because he's no win condition or major combo card.

Seems like a nice follow-up after you have Mayael's Aria.

In today's Standard, this would have been strong. Back then Lightning Bolt existed, and if you want to play mid-sized creatures, they need to either have numbers as good as Baneslayer Angel, or gives you cards like Bloodbraid Elf, or both like Wurmcoil Engine.

As I mentioned elsewhere, I believe Lightning Bolt was the card that started all the power creep since it saw print in M10. Because not even a four mana 5/3 haste lifelink could see a little play in its presence, so you'd need to make stronger creatures, and then stronger answers to those creatures. It was a vicious cycle. With the removal of Lightning Bolt from Standard, things are much better now.
