How i feel about competitive players and casual players in EDH: The competitive are german tourists, the casual are italian tourists, both in a italian beach. The italians asking themselves "why are the germans here?" make a legitimate question, the answer is because the beach is beautiful, no matter the country you came from. The italians wanting to ban the germans are dumb, because if the germans pay for their stay and follow the rules like everyone else, they have the right to be in the beach. Hovewer, if the germans started to ask themselves "why are the italians here?"... they would be dumb as hell.
I think this card is deceptively useful. It'll likely get the equivalent of a free swing to the dome in in the average game, and it obviously does a lot more damage against magecrafty decks. And its larger butt keeps it relatively safe from damage. Certainly not an all star card, but it'll help win games especially in Limited formats.
