always be a wild titan, a force of nature."

Seems fun, like the flavor, but I woulda preferred a Hill Giant with bonuses
A cyclops in Boros? How unexpected. And he's the second cyclops seen in either Ravnica or RTR after Big Borb, if I'm not mistaken.

A 6/3 on your turn and a 3/6 on opponents' doesn't seem too bad. He's another card for Glory of Warfare decks alongside Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran, Nobilis of War, and Scourge of the Nobilis. Although, at 5 cmc he pales in comparison to Agrus and the Nobilis.

seems ok but not really much more than that.
Totally ok.

A cyclops plucked from the clans by Boros and trained to be a legionnaire? Interesting flavor.

Aside from that, he's nothing special.

Lady and gentlemen.... I present to you the Edition War without Contrition, the War of the Web, the Mighty Match-up! We're using standard edition war rules. No posts of substance. Do not read the other person's posts with comprehension. Make frequent comparison to video games, MMOs, and CCGs. Use the words "fallacy" and "straw man", incorrectly and often. Passive aggressiveness gets you extra points and asking misleading and inflammatory questions is mandatory. If you're getting tired, just declare victory and leave the thread. Wait for the buzzer... and.... One, two, three, four, I declare Edition War Five, six, seven eight, I use the web to Go!

D&D should not return to the days of blindfolding the DM and players. No tips on encounter power? No mention of expected party roles? No true meaning of level due to different level charts or tiered classes? Please, let's not sacrifice clear, helpful rules guidelines in favour of catering to the delicate sensibilities of the few who have problems with the ascetics of anything other than what they are familiar with.

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.

Something like Tactical Shift is more magical than martial healing.
Telling someone to move over a few feet is magical now? :| I weep for this generation.
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.

Meh. In limited, he's playable. In constructed, I'd prefer something with more reliability or depth perception or something.

Looks pretty bad.

If I'm boros, I'd certainly pick it up.  6/3 on the attack, and by turn 5 you should have a few other guys out.  Give him a battalion first strike and watch him dominate the board.
This guy is better than most people think.

How do you get past this guy (sans flying) in combat.
Plus he'll probably be a 2-for-1 on the attack.
