I like this card very much, both in an aesthetic sense and in a mechanics sense, and I think it could turn out to be somewhat better than it looks. Even in tournament play, a 4/4 with trample is nothing to laugh at, and the ability to go "wide" with two creatures for the price of one (one of which is an artifact, no less) gives it a versatility that many beatdown creatures lack. Obviously it lacks the pure power of the recent Siege Rhino and Thunderbreak Regent, but not everything needs to have that sort of power to find a use. And in the context of Peasant Magic, it is to much of the field what Rumbling Slum was in Ravnica-era Standard (though I'd be remiss not to point out that Imperiosaur still exists).
Constructed: 3/5
Casual: 4/5
Limited: 4/5
Multiplayer: 3/5
EDH/Commander: 3/5

This creature is your choice of a 3/3 trample that brings along a 1/1 buddy or a 4/4 trample. Either way you slice it, for four mana, this is a pretty good bargain, and green decks will love having access to this in Limited. It’s flexible, but it can also just turn into a nice battering ram if you need it to. And the +1/+1 counter synergizes with that sub-theme.
I don't think this guy is impactful enough for Standard, but he could get there is Standard has a hole in a green deck that it can nicely fill. Not sure what that hole is, though.
Constructed: 2
Casual: 3
Limited: 4
Multiplayer: 2
Commander: 2.25
