This creature can attack untapped creatures.
Power attacker +3000 (While attacking, this
creature gets +3000 power.)

Six mana is on the high end of the spectrum. You
need a decent creature body in return for spending
such a significant amount of mana. What does
Exorious supply? Just a measly 4000 attack power.
Assuming Exorious lives long enough to attack, he
can kill all the little weenie creatures that
probably cost less and come with superior abilities.
The only good thing about the 4k power level
is that he can survive Searing Wave. Whoop-dee-do.

Stompatrons release draft. He actually worked quite
nicely, being able to tackle stronger monsters.
Sadly, Exorious is vulnerable with only 4k power on
defense. The lack of Double Breaker hurts too. Still
a somewhat valuable asset if you can nab him.
