Titan's Strength
 
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 defensive cards.

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 builds.
 
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.

Titan's strength
 
It has it's uses, heroic trigger and whatnot, and prowess triggers too. Scry tacked on is nifty. Not much to say about this one that needs to be said.
