You are making the mistake of reading this creature as just a big mana sink with all his powers stacked on top of each other. Most often you will throw your spare mana into this guy.

Stillmoon Cavalier is all about options. For example you need to get that last 3 damage to kill your opponent, sink 3 mana to make him a 3/1 with flying to kill your opponent. Or lets say you need to block a 2/2, pay 1 to make him have first strike and kill that 2/2 or depending on the mana you have open a,
3/3 or 4/4 ect..

Also many people forget how usefull the protection is. It allows him to remain unblockable against any white or black creatures, he can also block cards like baneslayer without dying.

He is also imune to some very powerfull kill spells path to exil, unmake, oblivion ring, ect...


I have been playing mono-black zombies since 1999 and I love them more than any tribal type. While I do love Stillmoon Cavalier I feel that he takes up the 3 dro... (see all)

Back in the day, people played Ihsan's Shade because there were no black removal spells that could kill black creatures, and the only other spot removal spells were white. Now with stuff like Terminate, Putrefy, and Maelstrom Pulse, being black no longer offers as much protection. Which is why this guy is so awesome, because unless you're playing against a red deck, he is basically immune to all removal except for red burn. Possibly the most removal-resistant creature in the game that doesn't have some form of shroud. If you really feel you must put things on him, play him in a white/green or black/green deck and Giant Growth him without fear.

I've run him in my doran deck before, back when people were still going gaga over vampire hexmage - dark depths. Made marit alge look absolutely stupid lol. Tried it with Sword of Fire and Ice/ Umezawa's Jitte. It was a miracle i wasn't slapped by the guy across the table. This card is unbelievably useful. Just watch out for burn decks. Otherwise, this guy can take you places hehehehe.

I love this guy, as he adds another creature that is usable in my pestilence deck, alongside cemetary gate which admittedly sucks. Also, its nice that he avoids black and white, so you only have to worry about red burning him. 4/5 easy. Great little cheap creature. But Why is he so damn expensive on ebay???

Happily ordered this wonderful little guy for my W/B Reanimator today. I'm quite stoked to be using him with Necromancer's Covenant.

@ dragonking987: "generally specking blue dose not have a lot of fliers." There's this game called Magic I play, you might want to try it sometime, it's alot of fun.

For the record, this thing's based on the dullahan. The dullahan was an unseelie faerie from Irish myth, taking the form of a horseman carrying his head under his shoulder (which makes me wonder WHERE the head is supposed to be here). Its goal: Seek out those who are supposed to die and drag them to the afterlife. And no, running does no good--on its approach, gates, doors, and so on will just unlatch, unlock, and open on their own. Your only defense is to throw a bit of gold (even a pin will do) into its path--for some reason, dullahans are terrified of gold.

What do you get when you throw White Knight, Black Knight, White Shield Crusader, and Stromgald Crusader into a blender?

There's a reason why this guy runs about $3 - $5 generally. Very solid. @nd best three-drop in mono-black after Vampire Nighthawk.

Knight Exemplar's ability is a global effect, so it will still have the abilities from her.
