The Bloodrush ability has been spotted on some cool cards, this not being one of them
For its regular cost, this card is not really something you would envision playing. Even in limited, you can think of this more like a spell than anything else. Getting that First Strike bonus definitely helps a lot.
The fact that it has a ‘dual role’ is still pretty good in limited. If you are in dire need of a good blockers, then he’s your man. If you wanna push through the final three points of damage, likewise. However, if there is a common pinger in the format, this card’s value will decrease quite a bit.
Hopefully, the next Bloodrush card preview will be a bit more interesting.
