That's a great card to play against Mono-Red decks. It looks like Esper Control has another effective card against aggressive strategies. Kaya's quote from Greg Weisman's novel War of the Spark was also revealed. Check it out:

The next card is called "Bioessence Hydra" and it's a 5-to-cast hydra that benefits from Planeswalkers. The more loyalty counters from Planeswalkers you have, the bigger it gets. It also has Trample to help you get damage through even if your opponent has a bunch of 1/1 tokens.

The Overrun-like effect looks strong in Limited and giving each creature the ability to destroy an Artifact or Enchantment when it deals damage is a good bonus.
