Bloodrush - 5GG, Discard Skarrg Goliath: Target attacking creature gets +9/+9 and gains trample until end of turn.

Eight mana for a 9/9 trampler isn't exactly the most exciting power to mana ratio that we've seen, however Skarrg Goliath's ability to used as a surprise pump spell like Rubblehulk makes Skarrg Goliath into a deadly piece of creature removal or game ending "spell." Once you've hit seven mana it'll be "Goliath online."
We haven't seen much of the new set, however it's a pretty safe bet that at 9/9 there isn't many creatures which will survive against it in combat. Even if they have protection from green, regenerate, or have deathtouch you'll still be able to trample your way to victory.
Between it's enormous size and pump factor, Skarrg Goliath will be a very deadly creature in limited.
