The card has not aged well
A lot of players are surely happy to see it back. It actually saw a small amount of play early one when Boros was popular. It’s definitely a decent creature and can be played the turn after a Firemane Avenger and still be efficient via the ‘Battalion’ mechanic.
You will probably be picking these relatively early in drafts as well since Boros will probably be an awesome limited weenie deck with minimal bombs or Rares required to win.
Will we see any other ‘Blasts from the Past’ in Gatecrash?
