Town Gossipmonger / Incited Rabble
 
It really seems like the GossipmIncited Rabbleonger should be the card that turns your other creature into Incited Rabble, but I guess that would have been hard to template, even in the era of double-faced cards. In terms of pure efficiency, there are probably stronger things to go to in both white and red aggressive decks, but the ability to start as a standard one-drop and upgrade by using any other creature you have will no doubt be useful in limited environments. I also can't help but feel like there might be a situation where the fact that its day and night sides are different colors could end up being important.

At first glance, it looks like it's a 2/3 with "firebreathing" that you can play for a single W. And that's correct, but you'll never actually get it transformed and swinging before Turn Four if you're lucky, and that's after you've played a second creature and held both back for a turn so you could tap them for this. in a fast aggressive deck, this is just too slow. The fastest way to get it out is to also play an Ornithopter, but a 0/2 creature has no place in an aggressive deck. If you could reliably sneak it out along with another creature later in the game, maybe, or if you're monowhite and there's a strong prot: white creature you need to get around, but I feel like in most decks you either don't want to pay the transform cost, or don't want Incited Rabble.
