Well... more like "Pretty good Defender."

Maybe even "Moderately so-so Defender."

In most cases I'd rather play a Righteousness.

What a great defender!

Mrredhatter is right, although it could serve as some weird pump spell for a Doran deck...

This card's art is confusing (like a lot of Legends art). Why is there a merfolk on a White card?

Indestructible Aura is better, unless your trying to skirt temporary -1/-1 debuffs, then try Gerrard's Battle Cry.

You guys have no idea what you're talking about. He's a "great" defender, it says so right in his name! How could you not run a "great" card?

...and gains Defender.

The only good use I can think would be in a deck that runs Doran, the Siege Tower, then this could be quite useful to pump an unblocked attacker.

Ironically, the biggest creatures are the ones that need the least protection from burn and combat damage.

As for the art, it wasn't til I noticed the hammerhead shark in the background and the bubbles coming out of the merfolk's mouth that I realized the entire thing is underwater. Decidedly un-white. I get the feeling Wizards used to just commission a big pile of generic fantasy art, and then match it up to whatever seemed like it might fit.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
