Molten Primordial 5RR
creature - avatar (R)

Haste.
When Molten Primordial enters the battlefield, for each opponent, take control of up to one target creature that player controls until the end of turn. Untap those creatures. They have haste until the end of turn.

Really bad for standard, good in commander I guess?

Edit: I have no idea how to edit the topic title here, and I forgot to add the name of the card. 
Yawn.

It looks like all the primordials are primarily for multiplayer (read: Commander). I like them though for what they do, especially being a COmmander player almost exclusively these days (other than sealed tourneys like prereleases...).
If I'm right, I'm right. If I'm wrong, I still believe I'm right. Think of it as religion. dubito ergo sum.
I really love this art.

Wow, and that makes Indi 2 for 2 so far.

Creature, come here. Creature, STAP!

Hehe 
EDH and limited goodness
Wonder how the Primordials fit into Ravnican flavor....

Anyway, this is standard GILBIC material.

I dunno...
Two hastey dudes and remove a blocker for a turn?
There might be some merit to this guy.

but it's been done before, and for cheaper
My guess on the cycle...

red avatar

6/4 haste with act of treason for each opponent, although we could be lucky and get a zealous conscript ability

black avatar

5/5 intimidate with a rise from the grave for each opponent's graveyard (not yours)

green avatar

6/6 trample with a rhino token for each opponent 



Nailed it!

I think my green avatar prediction is a bit ambitious though - on reflection I think it will be 6/5 and produce centaur tokens.

To be fair, Zealous Conscripts are amazing.

That said, they're certianly going to overshadow this card until they rotate.  After they rotate, though?    There might be a narrow rogue use for this card. 

Cats land on their feet. Toast lands peanut butter side down. A cat with toast strapped to its back will hover above the ground in a state of quantum indecision.

In mulitplayer, this reads kill target player.

Absolutely horrible in constructed.  I'm not even sure how good this will be in edh.  I suppose it's playable.

Same way the nephilim do. Ancient gods and all that.

(While on the subject of Lovecraftiana, I am convinced Sorin wrote the Grimoire of the Dead and it's about the Eldrazi.)

It bugs me that this guy is "molten" but doesn't deal damage. Feels like bad flavor.

Haste makes him explosive. I like him, but he's probably not as good as the black one.
Pretty good.

There's also the Primordial Sage (a Spirit rather than an Avatar, but Primordial is in the name and all. Besides, Spirits can be deityesque too). Possibly a relative of these guys. And Stalking Vengeance could well be this one's predecessor. Other Avatars from Ravnica include Sanguine Praetor, Excruciator, Scion of the Wild, and Avatar of Discord.

^ This would be my favorite card in the set, hands down. I salute you, Loxodon Aristocrat.
To whom it may concern: it's getting really old, being unable to see the top half of anything autocarded in the first post of each thread. Fixplz,kthx.
Anyone else thinks this porcine creature might the 'boar-god' referred to on some Gruul cards?
@wynzerman No, to be fair, someone called this before me, I just agreed. Devastating in EDH, though, will be perfect in my friend's Jor Kadeen deck.

With JK and metalcraft, this guy represents 24 damage by himself in our playgroup, plus the power of the stolen creatures!

I'm changing my green primordial prediction though - it might be half a Plow Under per player. I say half because a full Plow Under per opponent would make me wring the neck of anyone who cast it.
loxodon aristocrat hahaha

this card is good. 
I just saw this... its bad.
