"Ah, this wall is attacking me... I'm so helpless and fragile... the wall has a scary face... Ahhhh!!! Walls!!!"

Kidding aside... one of the best cards ever. I'm just glad this bomb was a rare or everyone would have a playset.

Love the picture. Otherwise, pretty limited card.

We had a group of players who played multiple players games with attack to right or left. I made a RUW wall deck with four of each Wall of Swords, Wall of Wonders, Wall of Fires, Wall of Stones and Wall of Airs, with of course four Animate Walls. Some extra control with Counterspells, Swords to Plowshares, Fireballs etc. Of course full set of dual lands. My idea was just to have some fun with walls.

It was first time I beat them all. They wouldn't let me play that deck again.

Your friends sound rather selfish, Tavaritz. You (presumably) dominate a multiplayer game one time with a perfectly fair deck that doesn't utilize anything "unfun" and they bar you from using it? Bleh.

Animate Wall is extremely limited in what it can do, but can serve as a back-up to Rolling Stones in decks which want to use Walls to attack. Many walls make good attacking creatures. Wall of Swords is perhaps the most obvious, but there are obscure walls from expansion sets that fit here as well. Wall of Razors, Illusionary Wall, and Sunweb all fall into this category, as do many others.

Heh, with Defender, fewer and fewer cards with it are actually walls. Therefore, this is mostly useless.
Then again, it was useless to begin with, since most walls have 0 power.

Red has lots of walls which are good for animating: Blistering Barrier, Cinder Wall, Wall of Razors, Wall of Torches, etc.
