Todays final RtR card to rate is...

Splatter Thug


5.0: First pick no matter what.  I will always play this card.
4.5: Splashable and first pick worthy.
4.0: First pick pack 1.
3.5: Early pick though not always a first pick.
3.0: Solid early/mid pick.
2.5: Solid pick in color.
2.0: Should generally make the deck if in this color.
1.5: Decent filler.
1.0: 23rd card if you have to.
0.5: This card will sometimes be sideboarded in.
0.0: I will never put this card into my deck (main deck or after sideboarding).

This guy is one of the best common creatures in the set in my opinion.  I mean a 2/2 with first strike for 3 is a good deal.  A 3/3 with first strike that can't block is also a really good deal.



Yeah, really good creature in this set. Puts the pressure on and is really tough to block. 
I was thinking 3.0-3.5 range as well. It is extremely efficient, both with the unleash and without.
3.5. Very effective when unleashed, kills centaurs. When not unleashed, it is an excellent blocker for all the bears running around.
2.5-3.0. Let's not get crazy here, guys. He's really solid, but by no means ridiculous.

3.0 is the high end.

3.5 is really reaching...

I consider first-strike and alpha-type ability, particularly when paired with 3 power.

Solid 3 for me.
