This is the centerpiece of my legacy Stompy deck. Probably wouldn't be able to legitimately run the deck without it.

They unrestricted this?!

T_T

Good lord, time to start trading one valuable piece of green paper for another...
At least they had the decency to reprint it.

In response to the previous comment, if I were to use this defensively, I would just use it on one of my OWN guys, and then block his attacking creature with it, this is sometimes a 2 for 1, unless you have a creature with a high enough toughness to survive the attacking creature anyway...

So let's say they attack with an Ancient Kavu (3/3 he can pay 2 to make it have no color); and you have an Eldrazi Spawn (0/1), a Steel Wall (0/4) and an Accorder Paladin (3/1) as potential blockers; you have a green up, with berserk in your hand. He has gone to the declare attackers step, and has declared that his Kavu is attacking you, from this point. what is the best way to use Berserk in this situation?

(for simplicity purposes, let's say your opponent is tapped out, and has zero cards in hand)


If no one responds in say, a day or so, I will post what I would do, whether it is the best thing to do or not.


GOOD LUCK!

"What's that Blightsteel Colossus? You want to swing for 22/22 Indestructible trample infect? Go right ahead. What's that? You''re completely unaware of a drawback? Yeah, I am too."

This plus Primal Bellow, bellow has to resolve first, of course. Heck, two Bellows. That's three green mana for what would end up winning in one attack.

You mad?

Let's say you play a Kiln Fiend.

Let's say you play an Assault Strobe.

Let's say you then play this.

Kiln Fiend first gets +3/+0 from casting Assault Strobe, then he gets +3/+0 BEFORE Berserk's ability triggers. This means that you are swinging with a 16/2 double striking trampler turn 3, all for 3 cards.

Assuming lands every turn, you could also throw in a giant growth beforehand for a 28/5 double striking trampler!

Bonus points for any extra cards like Mutagenic Growth

With a hand of 3 lands, Kiln Fiend, Assault Strobe, Giant Growth, Berzerk, and then perhaps drawing two Mutagenic growths, on turn 3 you could swing with a 48/9 double strike trample. Just short of 100 damage on turn 3 ;)
