Rubblebelt Raiders - 1[R/G][R/G][R/G]

"This city will perish, and the Gruul will cheer as the boar-god crushes the last bricks into dust."
-Nikya of the Old Ways
Revealed in a podcast on MTGCast.com, Rubblebelt Raiders can quickly become a massive threat. Easily hitting the battlefield turn three off a mana dork, Rubblebelt Raiders will always gain at least one +1/+1 counter when it attacks because it counts itself.
In an aggressive deck, it's not very unlikely to attack with three or more other creatures the same turn. You'll want to give it trample with Rancor or Skaarg Goliath make sure you hit your opponent with Rubbelt Raiders.
Because Rubblebelt Raiders can become so large so fast, it makes a fantastic target for your Ulvenwald Tracker to fight with against your opponent's biggest threat.
