First.



Since when do mods not care about pointless posts? Febb, I used to have such respect for you.

This card: Fun stuff, but it means the return of Thragtusk about as much as it means the return of Krosan Cloudscraper

Hey man, I'm still the same cuddly febb as before.


Except I am more insipid. 
Real men hold shift. If everyone has their fingers in the pie, then someone is eating fingers.
2/3 for 3 is fine. In limited, this might be average, or it might be great, depending on how many beasts there are. If Centaur Courser is in M14, this gets a lot worse.
Looks like M14 is gonna be the tribal core set. Beyond just slivers that is.

And this is a damn fine common. 2/3 for 3 with upside is always playable, and it does something the turn it comes down.
Looks "ok" for a common.
Pretty neat i guess.

why would tragtusk ever need +1/+1 counters? Actually, they're fairly irrelevant.

What?  No, not smiley face.  I can't imagine Thragtusk being reprinted, nor do I imagine very many people in general wanting it reprinted.  Besides, that's no proof at all.  It just means they're printing enough beasts to make this worthwhile in limited.
Come check out my friend's youtube channel where he gives bad movies what's coming to them!

It was sarcasm.  Sorry for the confusion fellas.  
There needs to be a font for sarcasm.
On the card; seems fun, end step seems odd, though.
Signs are definitely pointing to a tribal set. It would make sense for Theros to have some tribal themes, so maybe it is a tie to the next set.

In any case, I think it will be interesting to have a tribal core set. I wonder if they will bring back Changelings, because that would be awesome.

If I remember right 2012 had the griffin rider and there were 3 griffins, so beast reference does not mean lots of beast
This is obviously for those beast tribal decks needing a non-tribal card to boost their tribe... lawl
Yeah, the idea of a 3-mana common green non-beast creature being an explicit boon to beast decks is ridiculous.



Umm are we debating on something? Do people actually run beast tribal? My bad...
I love Beast creatures... so many good ones.  This pump seems kind of weak, but still nice to have in Limited.  You get to pump up whatever beast survives combat.
Could prove fun in limited.
Hint that Beasts is a relevant creature type in Theros?
