    4 for a 7/7 haste? Sounds great.
    You'd need to play it when you had a land open. So without ramp that's turn 5. Turn 5 7/7 haste doesnt sound that bad.

    7/7, no evasion, only has haste for 5 mana in a heavy red deck.

    Thundermaw doesn't even see ridiculous amounts of play as a red top end, and this is infinitely worse. Deserves its rare status, but I'd be surprised if this ever even came close to winning anything.

    Not to mention all the 2 for 1s

    BTW: The Card so needs an "When attached, untap the land" Clause

    In mono red, the 2-for-1 you get isn't too unreasonable. Your curve should be low enough to not care.

    Should be viewed as a 5 mana 7/7 that sacs a land when it enters the battlefield, in a way. If anything, it gains a positive by not being a target for Essence Scatter, but it kinda loses all privileges by just being bad.

    Secretly an okay limited card.

    There were better manlands in Zendikar, though. I don't want to go through this nonsense again.
