Because of the high mana cost of the Mountain Giant this card is usually only played in constructed in decks that don't play many cards early on in the game.
Notably a deck archetype called Handlock aims to use Life Tap to have eight to nine cards in hand as early as turn three. Cards that benefit from large hand size: Mountain Giant and Twilight Drake are then used to create huge board presence early on in the game.
