Avarax is another card that I always liked, but never really got the press I thought it could have. There are plenty of creatures that draw a card as their comes-into-play trigger, and they have often seen play just because of that. Avarax goes one better for aggressive decks that can afford its mana cost, guaranteeing you not one but two powerful creatures. Compared to other creatures of its cost that often see play in constructed, it may not look spectacular, but those are solid fundamentals which can take over a setting like limited where resources are usually even tighter. And in that case, I simultaneously smile and shudder at the fact that it's now a common and some Eternal Masters decks will inevitably end up with five.

5 drop hasty 3/3 that provides you with another 5 drop hasty 3/3 when it ETBs. uh, while the effect is certainly valuable, I wish that the creature was something with a little more oomph. but as it stands, it's something.
