Too bad Red doesn't connect with Black or Blue this set, otherwise this would be a prime choice for a cipher enabler. Still not bad to push through some extra damage in Boros/Gruul. Nothing to write home about, but it's nicely costed.
edit: Check out the dude on his cell phone back there. "You gotta come check out this street performance -- a fire juggler. He's got mad skillz!"
This card will be dope in limited. And both boros+orzhov and gruul+simic can run this with plenty of one-drops to cast this on.
Just got back from the Pre-release.
It isn't dope in limited. It is the dopest-dope spell to ever dope the dopeland.
Seriously, it is ridiculous. Won me several games damn near by itself. It becomes an incredibly difficult creature to block.
That said, place it on something small, and not your big beater. The reason being that if they do end up double block, you get a huge amount of damage through. If they don't, you get a huge amount of damage through.
Also creates really nasty situations when you do it like this. Which threat is more of a problem for your opponent? It's a really nasty card.
