"this dude can just go straight to smashing face first into an attacker from being played turn 1... With your face."

Man this art just annoys me and they definitely made this guy too cautiously.

New card from journey into nyx

Iroas, God of Victory

As long as your devotion to red and white is less than 7, Iroas, God of Victory isn't a creature.
Creatures you control can't be blocked except by 2 or more creatures
prevent all damage that would be dealt to attacking creatures you control.

removes drawback on its first ability. ME WANT IROAS.

I know where this fellow fits: In a Zedruu Commander deck! You get life and cards, the opponent has to deal with the liability of self-inflicted pain. Put Indestructibility on him just to be extra sadistic.

And I just realized he also works well with Soul Conduit. Burn yourself a few times, then switch life totals.

Meh, I think I'll stick with Electric Eel.

This guy's art reminds me of several of the guys I play Magic with.

So, after seeing this Satyr in action (and originally being a detractor) I have to say that he is a house. I originally thought that he would just not be worth it against any midrange or aggro but the truth is that he has little to no drawback against anything but another red deck. Even then, he's still likely dealing the opponent more damage than he's dealing you. My only complaint (as a player, design is well-done) is the lack of a second toughness. Trading this with a leftover mana dork sucks.

Also, I really like the way my opponents play against this guy. They often won't trade Sylvan Caryatid with it, instead letting me send extra damage to the face. The plays based around his drawback, while they are hard on me, are amazing and remind me of how much I enjoy magic as a game. I once had an opponent exactly lethal me with a Polukranos, World Eater activation after I didn't block .

Magic in 2013...Wizards prints a strictly better Jackal Pup, and people are in the comments complaining that it's "too cautious."

Power creep sucks.

I would change his pumping to:
RedRed: Firedrinker Satyr gets +2/+0 until end of turn and deals 2 damage to you. That feels a heck of a lot more rare.
(I am not a fan of powercreep. This pumping just seems more fair. And it is different in a more exciting way.)
(There is also still huge potential for this card to hurt you more than it helps you.)

@ShatterPalm - It's like HotHit said, you are punished for mis-plays with a guy like this. No way should he have been on the battlefield on turn 9, sitting around so you can smash him.

In the right hands it's a good card.

I guess my personal feeling is that he shouldn't necessarily be a rare due to his vulnerability but otherwise it works well in the right deck.
