) to a creature. Of course, this also causes this creature to die in the process and it costs an additional colorless mana but hey, it’s still pretty good. One feature that I like about this creature that the Flametongue didn’t have is if the opponent doesn’t have any creatures, you can pound four damage strait at him since it has haste. Very nice overall. A little expensive? Maybe.
