the most flexible card in the fight mechanic we've seen?

I can dig this one.
I bet 30 coins on the big guy.
Definitely a more playable prey upon. Should be nice in limited.
Standard Pauper! (play it on MTGO)
Instant speed Prey Upon at common is horrifying.

GTC limited is going to be a scary place.
Instant, and red, and green, and removal.

Green/Gruul want this, I'm not sure if red does (perhaps a resolved Vexing Devil?)
Decks I run
Show
I currently run a deck for Standard, Modern, Commander and Legacy. For standard, I have a typical, horribly budget Rakdos Deck Wins. For Modern, I have a B/G/U/W Draw-go Reanimator featuring my favorite creature, Wurmcoil Engine. For Legacy, I'm trying too hard to break Pyromancer Ascension. I also run a Naya Zoo with all the oldies. For Commander/EDH, I'm running The Mimeoplasm. A little morals thing about me, I like winning through combos, but not infinitely. However quiet, I am a Christian, so feel free to tell me you are too, it's always a relief.

You know, I think I'm still going to do a Dimir run at prerelease, but I'm DEFINITELY going Gruul first.
Great card for limited.

You can still fight your vexing devil when enters battlefield before you sacrifice it, I guess, since its triggered ability still on the stack.
Beware !!!! There are Zombies even in Spaces !!!
why is this instant? =O what happens if you play it at combat phase? Make their 11/11 unblockable (hypothetically) fight your 1/1 deathtouch?
Elegant though obvious.

Snapcaster Mage is the best card of all time. How do you deal?

Gruul in limited gets better each day.

On a side note, isn't High Priest of Penance in the artwork?

WotC doesn't care about flavor. Their forum is the only place where an ORC can kill a troll...

It's about time we have Instant speed Fight.

This is why a certain poster on the 1st page is going to be scared of GTC draft. Because of stuff like this.

Like I said, red most likely won't want it, although it COULD turn a table around more easily for a green/very big creatures deck (which is Gruul, duh). Also, possible synergy with Bloodrush.

I despised Prey Upon, but as a hybrid instant for more that lets you make two of your own critters fight on the offhand chance you really need to... I could warm up to it.  Instant really makes all the difference, changing it from a marginal Bone Splinters to a potential combat trick/combat trick counter

Prey upon was always very good limited removal.  This is no different.
This is better than Ultimate Price in some decks. Also, really good with Bloodrush.
Now I can really feel like an evil overlord as I have my creatures spill their own allies' blood!

yeah, particularly when one of them is stuffy doll
I haven't decided how I feel about it. It might be amazing. It might not. Errrr. Probably playable.

I like it at instant. it really accents the gruul flavor of unpredictable violence.
I would have killed, literally ended someones life, to NOT have Arrogant Bloodlord riding a giant ant... Good times:

but where DID the other fork come from?

Lord_Zed: I was at my friends house when this happened. He's married and his wife was an excellent baker. She had baked a homemade apple pie the night before. I was hungry, and my friend convinced me to try those low carb monster drinks. Before this day, I had never triend energy drinks before. Boy was I in for a treat. When I tried that first monster, I really enjoyed the flavor, but the taste that it left in my mouth wasn't so good. What was my solution? Drink another! before I could finish drinking that 2nd monster, I felt it already kicking in(these drinks were not very far apart, we're talking minutes here) my friend decided that it was a good idea to whip out that fresh pie his wife made the night before. I didn't know what to do, since I felt incredibly invigorated, and at the same time, freaked out by the rush I was feeling, but I was also hungry, and my friend have me an entire plate with a fork and said "help yourself." He extended his saucer to me, and I cut him a piece of the pie and handed it to him, then I looked at the pie, noticed that the pie was in an aluminum holder, and dumped the entire pie onto my plate and started eating it with 2 forks. I don't know where I found that other fork, it probably came from my friend. Anyhow, his wife wasn't happy, and I was already in magical christmas land. 2 days later, I was in my friends bed and I slept for 14 hours. His wife outlawed my from having any of her baked goods for a while(which sucked because I could just show up at there house, steal some sweets, and leave) and said I couldn't have any energy drinks at her house, unless under close watch. My friend, on the other hand, had to take me out to a steak dinner, because apparently I won a bet where I climbed a tree and didn't die.

But don't most recent fight cards allow that interaction? Why is this a big deal?

Because it's an Instant speed trick.     
This card is gonna be sick.

I really wanted this to be or even so it could become a core set staple. No love for green. Red has burn all ready, Gruul will run burn.

Forget Gruul, Simic and Izzet cause this as removal if the counterspell in hand isn't used.

"Before the end of your turn ... that Pit Fights the Croc Frog! Croc Frog wins."

I so want to say that.

Orzel, Halfelven son of Zel, Mystic Ranger, Bane to Dragons, Death to Undeath, Killer of Abyssals, King of the Wilds. Constitution Based Class for Next!

Called it (-:
This can be good when your opponent targets your creature with removal, you can respond to make it a trade instead. Prey Upon couldn't do that.

Make people like Green, more likely.

Golgari, Simic and Gruul are all looking pretty darn strong.

Orzhov...
I'm not even sure what the heck they're doing. 
So with prey upon, this, Domri and Tracker, Gruul has a ton of ways to fight and get rid of most fliers or pesky creatures with low toughness but good abilities. I dig it. Wasn't Fight Club a thing? If so, it just got a new best friend.
Hey look, yet another card to go into my Junk deck with the new Orzhov Cleric that Vindicates when it takes damage.

This, Prey Upon, Ulvenwald Tracker, Deadly Allure, Revenge of the Hunted.

It will be so bad, but it will make so many people angry I just have to play with it.

Definitely happy to see a low mana cost instant Fight.  Goes well with first strike, a good use of creatures that are going to die anyway, and good for removing a blocker or utility creature.

First Strike doesn't factor into a Fight.

Orzhov was "grind control" in the original Ravnica, along with "death triggers" and "lifegain/payment".

But let's see the green guilds:

Trostani, Selesnya's Voice: Bant or Naya, this is pretty cool tech. Or just abuse Nacatl War-Pride with it.

Deadbridge Goliath is strictly better than Juzam Djinn. He might come out on turn 3 rather than turn 2, but that's what you get for the option to not hurt yourself.

Then we have this and Zegana, and yeah.

It sure does, when you can fight in the first strike combat damage step, after your first strike creature has dealt damage, and before your opponent's normal striking creature deals damage.  Use an extraneous creature to deal the remaining damage, and save your better first striker.

You could do the same thing with a direct damage spell, but presumably you're playing a deck that can make use of this card in its normal "take out an opponent's creature" mode.

Damn.

The Johnny in me died a little.

My devil artifact runs towards the angel in front of you...
The angel braces herself, knowing the little devil will get the first hit.
The devil stabs with his sprear, and the angel swings her sword in agony, and...
*Cue gameshow music*
The angel looks around herself confused as the goblin announcer sais:
"In the red corner, Rakdos, Loooooooord of Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiots!"
The angel lowers her sword... "What the?"
"In the blue Corner, Jenna, the 'Restoration Angel'!"
"What madness is this?"
Rakdos smiles... "I hope you're going to enjoy this as much as Me..."
"Wait... Planeswalker! PLANESWALKER!! HELP!"
...
The announcer wrinkles his face in empathy, and lets out a small *Ouch*.
"Rakdos, wins!"
*The lights fade and the announcer disappears into the shadows as Rakdos, himself, flies headfirst into your lair and delivers a terrible blow.*

From the shadows, a voice can be heard...
"No restoration for you, angel..!"
