It's the Balrog! D:
This is a good card. Top-notch in limited, maybe constructed-worthy.

Wow. Flexible, powerful, and efficient, this will definitely be a powerhouse in Limited and Standard, maybe even showing up in Modern! That would be really cool to see a resurgence of Living End Cascade decks

To psychichobo You are probably new, so let me explain. Channel was instant speed, it usually cost more than the actual creature's converted mana cost. The effect of being channeled was usually a stand alone spell. Thus creatures with channel served a dual purpose, at sorcery speed they are creatures, at instant speed they are combat tricks and the like.

Bloodrush can only be used during your attack phase. Bloodrush effects boost the power/toughness of your attacking creature. The bonus is only during your turn. There is less flexibility but it makes up for it with the surprise factor on your opponents face when they take 9 damage instead of 3. Bloodrush is perfect for Gruul, whereas Channel was more about spirits being sacrificed for an effect.

And Lastly no one respects Kamigawa block. It created a cardtype that was clunky and didnt interact well with other cards ie Arcane. If Arcane was printed as an ability then it would've interacted better but since it was under ... (see all)

Trygon_Predator: *NO!* this is more like the PUPPY DOG of Morgoth or the GRUMPY CAT of Morgoth. >:P

RAKDOS THE DEFILER: I AM A DEMON OF THE ANCIENT WORLD. A CREATURE FAR BEYOND ANY OF YOU. WIELDER OF THE FLAME OF UDUN. YOU SHALL NOT SUMMON ME, PLANESWALKER. I SHALL MERELY STOP SLUMBERING AND SLAY SOME OTHERS BEFORE I SLAY THEE IN THY TURN, AND RETURN TO REST IN THE DEEP PLACES, UNDISTURBED UNTIL THE BREAKING OF THE WORLD.

that said, the Gruul do make a nice Beast. ^^ It simply is Not A Demon. :D

My new rg std beater:

Waif
Captive
Mayor
Mauler
Emissary
Kruin
Rampager

Rancor
Revenge of the hunted
2x wrath

4x crag
9 mt 9 frst

Its based around being too fast to stop. It can get 10 or so dmg in before a verdict hits. Then get a flipped kruin out, rush it and swing for game.

Funny this is the only gruul card that stacks up to the wolves. I was considering rubblebelt as well but its vulnerable and lacks evasion. Oh, the bloodrush snake is pretty tight too. Also thinking of wrecking ogre, just for the bloodrush. Too much mana tho, i like being confident with three lands. Deadbridge can also add some much needed late game. A final thought was domri x 2, but planeswalkers weigh u down in these colors. Also, I pride myself on this being a budget deck, that can be built for about $20 on amazon (provided you have at least a few rancors and crags to start) and it can stand up to decks where literally every single card is about $20. Granted it will die horrible deaths to serenity, bu... (see all)

I can't believe I haven't commented on this card yet.
This is the card that got me the most excited of Gatecrash (really!).
The optionality and all is great already, but what made the card for me is that BOTH options are reasonably costed.
5/5
