Random Card of the Day #15

Random Card of the Day #15:

Rakeclaw Gargantuan - 2RGW
Creature - Beast
{1}: Target creature with power 5 or greater gains first strike until end of turn.

Initial thoughts:

Really color intensive, really effective though. Once this hits the field, it is a force to be reckoned with. But that's just because it's a 5/3 first striker. I would like to say he was amazing in limited but I didn't draft Shards too much, I never got the mana management thing down and once M10 came out, that's all I cared for at the time.

Just another game winning creature that's easily removed. I suppose it could be even more annoying if you Stifle his ability with Turn to Frog, but then again Turn to Frog in general is annoying.

A good card, but it would never see play outside of Shards Block or Limited if only because there are other better cards. Like Phyrexian Obliterator. Still dies to bolt. 3/5
