Temur War Shaman

I feel weird being so bullish on Whisperwood Elemental yesterday and not so enthused about this card today, but… not enthused. If you play this, it’s a 2-of MAXIMUM. I jamGruul Ragebeast in every EDH deck with red and green in it, just about, but this is less good than that card, which was a bulk rare and still is.This is harder to trigger than Gruul Ragebeast, so it’s mostly a creature that probably costs 1 mana too many for its power and toughness rating and which Manifests every turn. While that’s good, I don’t know if this will make the cut, unless it’s a 1-of or it’s relegated to the board.
