This card, of course, made its debut in Theros,
where it was sometimes overlooked among the
mythic hydras and titans - but it's actually
just as powerful in its own way. Giant Growth is
no longer in Standard regularly, but this is
often just as good, especially when you're using
it on an attacking creature or one with first
strike. I wouldn't underestimate the scry
ability either, even though it's only for one
card. Red has gone for years at a time (in
Standard) having to play in topdeck mode, and in
the sort of deck when every card deals damage or
otherwise threatens the opponent, card selection
helps ensure that you stay on parity with
Today's card of the day is Titan's Strength
which is a one mana Red instant that gives
target creature +3/+1 and you Scry 1. For
Red this is generally as effective as a Giant
Growth and naturally benefits from being
combined with combat effects like First Strike.
This will usually be as effective as a Lightning
Bolt with the addition of Scry which makes the
only minimal drawback being needing a creature
and not facing a threat too big to destroy.
Overall a combat trick that should see a large
number of slots across current formats in aggro
In Limited this is a great card to have in
multiples and all copies should be played in
Sealed whenever running or splashing Red.
In Booster this can be a very early pick after a
Red rare as it almost always has value either
offensively or defensively as well as improving
the odds on your next draw.
