18 life on turn 2...must be respected
Posted By: Arachibutyrophobia (10/14/2011 7:07:35 PM)


This is no doubt one of the best white one drops in the game for so many reasons.

1) Serra Ascendant can come out at full power on turn 2
2) The Chalice of Life can be activated very early game
3) Test of Endurance and Felidar Sovereign
4) Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant can activate very early game, giving you a very solid advantage.

A must have in any mono white life gain decks.

Unfortunately lands are colorless... Still a very good turn 1 life gain chance though!

At these amounts of life, it didn't even matter that you're getting -1 card advantage; it bought you all the time you need to cast those spells that get the card advantage back for you. This saw lots of play, and there were decks that win simply by recurring this every turn (using Proclamation of Rebirth).

White/Blue w/Blue Sun's Zenith etc, then Venser's Journal.

That deck built itself.

Cool card, huge upgrade from the seers. Maybe a bit too powerful, lets you gain huge amounts of life on turn 2.

Yes. For a total cost of 1W and revealing white cards in your hand, you can gain 6, 9, 12, even 15 life, or more. Quite the deal I would say. 5/5

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
