Think it's powerful in boros and mediocre but playable filler in red.
Chip damage vs fetch lands and planeswalkers is real.
Firebreathing can really add up if unblocked.
The silence is an incredible high upside option to have when you have a strong tempo/battlefield advantage.
Playing a cheap creatures and then denying opponent from advancing is a great way to go hellbent and push in the last few points of damage.
It's far too situational to be worth a card in itself, but tacked onto a card that is fine to play on curve while developing, I love it.
The problem is red's 2 drops are way too competitive. The options right now for the last 2 slots are:
- Kargan Intimidator
- Plated Geopede
- Kiln Fiend
- Lightning Mauler
- Stormblood Berserker
- Dire Fleet Daredevil
You can make the case this is a good card, but I don't see it getting the edge over all these other cards.
Yeah, the front side alone is worse than all these cards. The option of creature / high upside situational spell is what appealed to me.
Upon further reflection (I have limited computer access rn), the front side is worse than I first thought.
Prob a miss, but silence//creature split card is no joke if the creature side was a TINY bit better
