No need to be so obtuse, maybe he's just trying to complement her. That's not too radical of a concept, I mean she is pretty acute, right?.
This right here should be a bannable offense :p

I'm liking Gruul right now.  Swing away, and every card in your hand is a combat trick.  Awesome.

At first glance i read "Viashino Skanktail" and was like "Come again?"

Love it.  Splashable, gonna go early in draft.

Maybe, and only at rare. However seeing as all the Bloodrush costs seem to be at 3 CMC, the accompanying P/T boost would have to be minimal.
Standard Pauper! (play it on MTGO)
Nice to get the full picture of how Bloodrush works!
"I have existed from the morning of the world and I shall exist until the last star falls from the night. Although I have taken the form of Gaius Caligula, I am all men as I am no man and therefore I am a God."
I'm liking Bloodrush more and more now.  Now that creatures can become combat tricks, and you can pass off keywords (at the very least), things are going to get interesting.  I wonder if the minimum cost will be 3, or if we'll see some weak stuff for less.

Relevent keywords that we can see:
First Strike: check
Double Strike: unlikely, but if we get it, it'll be overcosted, on a rare, with no more than +2 power
Flying: doubt we'll get this, since Gruul is R/G which aren't known for their flyers
Trample: likely, probably be a bit over costed, and won't give power more than 3
Hexproof: possible, very small power boost, and probably will be over costed some what
Shroud: has been being pushed as of late, and it prevents furthur Bloodrushes that turn
Unblockable: highly unlikely, and likely not to give much else outside the keyword, and of course, overcosted
Deathtouch: would be nice, but unless Gruuls have some spiders, no likely we'll see it, and will only give +1 power if we do

If we can pass off abilities as well, we might see some Firebreathing (maybe from a 0 power firebreather for cheap?).  Doubt we'll see Regeneration.  Can't think of any other abilities off the top of my head that we'd be likely to see.

Wild Speculation

I wonder if we'll see -X/-Y.  Probably won't see negative thoughness, and thus turn things into removal.  I'm also hoping to see some non-creature Bloodrush stuff now, but that seems to defeat the point.  And there's not much to go on negatice power except what Char-Rumbler?

Something like:

Bloodrush Instant
Instant - Uncommon
~ deals 4 damage to target creature.
Bloodrush - , Discard ~: target attacking creature get's +4/+4 until EoT.

Pretty good, and its nice to see more viashino.
awesome that bloodrush grants more then just a p/t boost, cant wait to see other cards.  for this one card tho, looks good for limited, but shows great potential for what bloodrush can do.  love the mechanic.
Gruul is looking pretty good in limited.

I agree. I just don't like bad CA though but I guess you will at least get a 1 for 1 trade most of the time and if you lucky a 2 for 1 on occasion.

Flying is in red with big dragons. A big flying dragon might bloodrush for it's cmc. Maybe something like:

Dragon Bro 3RG
Flying
Bloodrush - 3RG, DiscardDragon Bro: target attacking creature gets +5/+5 and Flying until end of turn.
5/5

Just a quick note on the MMORPG as an insult comparison... MMORPGs, raking in money by the dumptruck full. Many options, tons of fans across many audiences, massive resources allocated to development. TTRPGs, dying product. Squeaking out an existence that relys on low cost. Fans fit primarily into a few small demographics. R&D budgets small, often rushed to market and patched after deployment. You're not really making much of an argument when you compare something to a MMORPG and assume people think that means bad. Lets face it, they make the money, have the audience and the budget. We here on this board are fans of TTRPGs but lets not try to pretend none of us play MMORPGs.

Given the laziness and morbid obsesity amongst D&Ders, being able to convince someone to get on their feet, do some heavy exercise, and use their words to make them be healthier must seem magical.

Nice combat trick, or (like all bloodrush) "win-more" card.

Right now Gruul and Dimir are looking good. Hmm...They were the guilds that most wanted the Guildpact dissolved.

@Anubuss:
You mean hexproof. Hexproof doesn't prevent further bloodrushes.

On negative toughness, I'd expect it more than negative power. It's removal, but it's a very red removal (since it's little different, mechanically, than direct damage, and Flowstone Overseer). That said, I doubt we'd see it. So far they've all given the same P/T they have.

Yeah, that was a typo on my part I didn't catch.  Meant to say Shroud wasn't being pushed as of late.  I had mentioned Hexproof previously.

So, it looks like Bloodrush gives abilities, and it's likely they've gone the Transmute route of making the ability always cost 3 mana. Sweet. And this card is pretty nuts. The body might be a little overcosted, but underestimating First Strike in Limited is a mistake. Bloodrush even eliminates some of the disadvantages of the low toughness, since you'll have a lot of pump potentially available if they try and ping it during an attack. It's a pretty powerful combat trick, too. It'll never make the jump to constructed, but I really like the card.

Another thing: 3 power and first strike might be useful come RTR/GTC/Dragon's Maze limited. The 3/3 defines RTR limited, and this guy is at just the right power to tear them to pieces without getting killed.
Limited trick.
