It's half of a fists of the anvil. The heck do you people want? Kiln Fiend seems like a good target for this. +5/+0 for R.

It's not as bad as you all seem to think, in fact it's very middle-of-the-road as red pump spells go. Brute Force is not a fair comparison, as it is a color shifted card, Fists of the Anvil is a more apt comparison. Red simply doesn't get super efficient pumping, that's green's shtick.

What you could do with this card is almost a subset of what you can do with Shock.

Deal 2 extra damage to the player? Shock does it, without requiring one of your creatures getting through.

Letting your 1/1 trade with their 3/3? Shock does it too. And this can't even off a 2/2 like Shock does!

The only niche this has over Shock is double-strikers / infect. I guess if you're really desperate for a pump spell in your mono-red infect deck... even blue has a better pump spell (Distortion Strike).

the card art is very poor, given its also a pretty weak boost, I'd give it a 2.5/5
then again If ever I feel like running a minataur deck, I'll consider this card, till then its Brute Force all the way.

one of the poorer +x/+x instants that red has a limited selection of.

I'd like to have this card as trample (more akin to what a bull may do to somone if let loose upon them)
then bury at the end of turn.

Every time I see this card in the srs bsns games, I scoop immediately and do not cease my sobbing for at least an hour. Too broken.

Directly comparable with Brute Force and Reckless Charge, and not favorably.

How this card has managed to hover just above 1/5 is beyond me. Brute Force is +3/+3 for Red. This is +2/+0 for Red. The only thing I would ever use this card for is as a coaster... and even then I'm probably better off spilling my drink all over my table than letting this card touch it.

As a side note, Dynacharge is also pretty bad but still does this much better by combining it with Trumpet Blast. Talk about adding insult to injury.
