I see dual potential for this card. Being such a cheap cast, unless you'd rather pay 6 mana to burn 5 on a creature, Lightning Axe here has synergy with the new mechanics Madness and Delirium.

For Delirium, it's a quick-and-dirty way to populate the graveyard early on; just throw away a sorcery or creature (eg. Gravecrawler) and then this card right on top of it, and bam! you've have half your criteria for Delirium. Turn two or three, you could discard a sorc, Lightning Axe one of your own bros, and you'll have three different card types in the grave!

I'm very new to Magic, so I could be wrong about this next one, but: For Madness, the wording is, "If you discard this card, yadda-yadda," so, as I see it, Lightning Axe is saying, "Hey, you might as well get your money back!" Discard a card with Madness (something like Fiery Temper) and cast it on the cheap right behind Lightning Axe. Keep a creature with Prowess on the field the whole time, and you'll be causing some trouble.
