I don't know why I find this card funny but I do
So this is the Trample Bloodrush creature.....I am not amused.
"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."
looks like reanimator just got a new toy
8 mana 9/9 trampler is passable. The added bloodrush is certainly nice. But at 7 mana and 8 mana I just don't think it's enough for constructed.

But some good synergy with mimeo plasm. Discard to power something up, use it for counters on you plasm once in yard.

A wise man on film sequels:
Watching sequels to really good films is like visiting a bollock kicking parlour, paying your money and then proceeding to get your bollocks kicked...then leaving and returning at a later date to repeat the process. -iamthehollow
Decks: :R::G: Karn Tron :R::U: Bloody Fish There Will Be Blood (movie).
Obligatory fat green creature.  Yuck.
Most often, you will be using the ability over the creature. Double Attackers come to mind as they will just tear a 20 life player down.

Another aspect about the effect, is in multi-player games. You can Bloodrush another player's creature while they are attacking.

Also Rings of Brighthearth can copy the effect. So you can +18/+18 with trample.
There goes my theory about all bloodrush being three to activate.

I like how bloodrush can't be countered by regular counterspells though. This could come out of nowhere. 
I love everything that this card represents- It's big and ugly but it isn't dumb. Like Deadbridge Goliath I see this one taking time to catch on- but it's definitely in the range of playable. How much standard play it will see, I cannot say though.

possible use in craterhoof reanimator decks? probably not. Seems interesting enough for its ability... not so much the body, but the ability to surprise end a game. Better block that mana dork... at 7 mana
For the YMTC folk out there... this is probably the closest we're gonna get to Might of Two Oaks
I think i would rather have had Rubblehulk as my Gruul promo, but this guy will be a crazy ending trick to many a prerelease game.  Wonder what kind of mana ramp we'll get.     My bad.      
I think i would rather have had Rubblehulk as my Gruul promo...



It is.
This guy gets handed out at FNM on Launch Weekend.
If you pick Gruul at prerelease, Rubblehulk is indeed the guy you'll wind up with.

Holy God, this guy is going to win so many limited games out of nowhere.




So, do you always play around this guy if your green opponent is attacking with 7 mana open?  Ugh.
Seems legit to me.  To costly for constructed but good for limited, edh and casual.

Funny story: InQuest Magazine (I think it was InQuest) had an oversized Chaos Orb which I totally rooked someone into allowing into a (non-sanctioned) game. I had a proxy card that was a Mountain with "Chaos Orb" written on it. When I played it, my opponent cried foul: Him: "WTF? a Proxy? no-one said anything about Proxies. Do you even own an actual Chaos Orb?" Me: "Yes, but I thought it would be better to use a Proxy." Him: "No way. If you're going to put a Chaos Orb in your deck you have to use your actual Chaos Orb." Me: "*Sigh*. Okay." I pulled out this huge Chaos Orb and placed it on the table. He tried to cry foul again but everyone else said he insisted I use my actual Chaos Orb and that was my actual Chaos Orb. I used it, flipped it and wiped most of his board. Unsurprisingly, that only worked once and only because everyone present thought it was hilarious.

Hi guys! So, I'm a sort of returning player to Magic. I say sort of because as a child I had two main TCG's I liked. Yu-Gi-Oh, and Pokemon. Some of my friends branched off in to Magic, and I bought two pre-made decks just to kind of fit in. Like I said, Yu-Gi-Oh and Pokemon were what I really knew how to play. I have a extensive knowledge of deck building in those two TCG's. However, as far as Magic is concerned, I only ever used those two pre made decks. I know how the game is played, and I know general things, but now I want to get in the game for real. I want to begin playing it as a regular. My question is, are all cards ever released from the time of the inception of this game until present day fair game in a deck? Or are there special rules? Are some cards forbidden or restricted? Thanks guys, and I will gladly accept ANY help lol.
I have the same problem with women.

HOW DID I NOT KNOW ABOUT THE BEAR PRODUCING WORDS OF WILDING?! WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?!
That's what RPJesus tends to do. That's why I don't think he's a real person, but some Magic Card Archive Server sort of machine, that is programmed to react to other posters' comments with obscure cards that do in fact exist, but somehow missed by even the most experienced Magic players. And then come up with strange combos with said cards. All of that is impossible for a normal human to do given the amount of time he does it and how often he does it. He/It got me with Light of Sanction, which prompted me to go to RQ&A to try and find if it was even possible to do combat damage to a creature I control (in light that Mark of Asylum exists).

Blue players get all the overpowerered cards like JTMS. I think it's time that wizards gave something to people who remember what magic is really about: creatures.
Initially yes, Wizards was married to blue. However, about a decade ago they had a nasty divorce, and a few years after that they began courting the attention of Green. Then in Worldwake they had a nasty affair with their ex, but as of Innistrad, things seem to have gotten back on track, and Wizards has even proposed.
You are my favorite. Yes you. And moments like this make it so. Thank you RPJesus for just being you.

Also, Ludevic's Abomination  makes a better Godzilla.

Primordial Hydra  is obviously Ghidorah.

Edit: Godsire was Gamera before this was.

I dont really know about this one. Its a big stompy monster but the Bloodrush is so costy that its very unlikely to be played, even if it is 9 p/t and trample.

I also prefer the promo art.
I like the card, maybe I'll put it in my Yeva, Nature's herald edh deck as a little surprise I can  use if my commander is not around, and that's also nice if she is. But on a side note:

According to the gatecrash card image gallery this was previewed by the DailyMTG.com podcast. So is that information incorrect or did I just miss the podcast? and if so where can I find it?  because the link directs me to an ask wizards, and I can't find it in the archives either.

It is supposed to be a hole in the wall. The idea is this critter is busting through a wall and generally tearing stuff up in Ravnica.

This is what happens when you have seen more Kaiju movies by the time you were 5 than most people have seen in their entire life. You can blame my father for that one. Fond memories of staying up late and watching people tear around model cities in big rubber suits (which I still maintain has to be the coolest job ever).

Those late nights were also where my love of Dr. Who comes from. Hence my love of Wynzermans new avatar. Tom Baker was the best Dr. in my opinion, followed closely by Patrick Troughton.

Ok, enough nostalgia for now I guess.

I'm about to commit Whovian blasphemy in saying that my second favorite is Paul McGann (seriously, his character arc pivoted the entire new series), followed by Matt Smith, Pertwee and McCoy. I'd say the only Doctor I wasn't fond of though was Colin Baker.
