[SCD] Archetype of Aggression

Is this card as nuts as I think it is? I was testing it in a very shitty deck, but it turns out, giving Goblin Rabblemaster trample is pretty fucking sweet. Also, taking away Siege Rhino's trample, and chumping it with tokens is pretty fucking sweet. Also, having 2 red devotion, and thereby activating Purphoros, God of the Forge with only 2 more devotion, is also pretty sweet.


Anyone have any shells we can insert this into? Could Red Devotion once again become a thing?

I keep looking at this guy and thinking he'd have a place in a Sledgehammer/Devotion build as a 1 or 2-of. Throw in some anthem effects like Hall of Triumph, pump effects like Trumpet Blast or even double-strike creatures like Dragon-Style Twins to push damage through.

There are two cards that I keep thinking about in red or mardu shells. This is one of them. The other is Ankle Shanker. The two actually play fairly well together. Archetype also makes Fanatic of Mogis much better if you're going for devotion or aggro with a devotion sub theme.

Thanks to NerdBoyWonder for the amazing sig!

I saw this on Star City's site as part of their Budget Deck challenge. It looks like it could be retooled into an Archetype of Aggression deck with a devotion subtheme. Thoughts?
