I like this allot. It fit can deal damage even just once via combat, it'll be a game changer from there on. If you play a naya deck including Travel Preparations or just something else that gives him counters, he'll become a force to be reconed right away.
SWDS: 3.5/5 This guy can get pretty insane with doubling season out. Yeah you have to connect with him which is a bummer. Luckily in EDH there is sure to be someone you can swing at with this guy. Once you start getting counters on him he starts getting degenerate. Connect with him twice? Wow that's 2R: deal 4 damage to target creature. Another time? 2R: SIX damage to target creature. That's INSANE.
