This creature as many possibilities in the constructed and draft format. He provides an element of surprise to the field and can help take the advantage. The down side to this card is returning it to your hand at the end of the turn. This can be a problem but has benefits too.

What this card avoids:

1. Can’t be death smoked because it will be tapped the turn it comes into play
2. Since it returns to the hand big fatties can’t crush it.
3. Any spells played during the opponent’s turn

What this card can run into:

1. A huge blocker, a 3 mana 4000 power blocker will stop it
2. A good shield trigger will bring it down; terror pit, natural snare, Searing wave, etc.


The big benefit the card offers is the ability to add an extra attacker the turn it is played whether it is early or late in the game this card provides a game-breaking boost the players needs. The card gets a 3/5 for because it can easily turn the game around but can be equally stopped.

For the draft he is a critical item, a must take card. The advantage the card brings far out weights the down side of playing it. It gets a rating of 3.5/5.

We will see this card played in every fire civ based deck.
