I can't believe how underated this card is on here. This is one of the best enchantments I have ever seen. In a red white deck, usually full of creatures like Boros Swiftblade with double strike, this enchantment is FILTHY.

The only bad part about the Naya Hushblade combo is that you have to have both in your hand. If she gets the buff before this is played then the shroud backfires, and you cant enchant her. That lowers my versitility score for that combo, and thats a reason why i wouldnt build a deck with 4 and 4 just to pull it off, unless i built it around it and had no other multi perms. Plus you cant have multiple of those combos at once, because once again the shroud would trigger before the enchant and it backfires on you. A very flavorfull combo imo but, because of the lack of versitility, ide rather just throw these in a deck with Cerodon Yearling,Belligerent Hatchling, and Skyknight Legionnaire.

Basically speaking, shield of the oversoul is the best of the dual color enchantments because it protects the creature its attached to helping to reduce the amount of 2 for 1's against certain decks. The advantage of scourge of the nobilis in particular is in aggro red decks, because that lifelink lets you attack with abandon while not worrying about taking damage reprecussions during your opponents counter. It indeed works well on all sorts of naya creatures, especially the hushblade, but a lot of other ones work just as well. A 7/6 lifelinking thoctar has often made some of my opponents quit. Boros also has tons of red/white (the guilds colors) and in lorwyn there is the aforementioned spitemare, brion stoutarm, and the mimic cycle (I believe the red white one is battle gate mimic), and belligerent hatchling. I still prefer g/w though over red/white.

Oh and yes it does work with naya hushblade, the card doesn't care if the multi color is hybrid as long as its dual colored.

Amazing with some of the Naya stuff. Play Gloryscale Viashino and equip this next turn, then you're looking at a 8/8 lifelink that can be pumped. Also works great with double strike monsters like Hearthfire Hobgoblin or Marisi's Twinclaws.

This is a key card in a deck I made where all creatures are both red & white. It tips the scales in my favor whenever I bring it out, especially when used on the aforementioned Ceredon Yearling or Spitemare. Hitting a scourged Spitemare with a Shivan Meteor is just about game over every time.

Awesome stuff for red/white weenies, pump your creatures and get more and more life... even more impressive in combination with double strike (see Hearthfire Hobgoblin).

This card is very useful early, mid, and late game. Turn 3 onto a Naya Hushblade is amazing. +1/+1 and shroud for multicolor, +2/+2 for enchantment, then firebreathing and lifelink. It's a good way to start off a match.
Also, I have topdecked this card many times late game to pull off the win. They don't stack as well as Edge of the Divinity's do, since additional firebreathing is useless, and once the new rules kick in, the additional lifelink won't matter either.
Very good card.

I love this card, personally I made a very effective red/white deck based on this enchantment with Ceradon Yearling, Bull Ceradon and some instants such as Fire at Will and Double Strike. It also great to put in some enchantments to give creatures trample. The great thing about this enchantment with the Ceradon Yearlings is that you can have for little mana a 4/4 creature thats pumpable with lifelink and has vigilance and haste, can't go wrong there.
