A great response to Dark Ritual users and their shiny turn 1 Hypnotic Specter. Wait till you see the look on your opponent's face after he happily swings with specter on his turn 2 and all of sudden runs into this kitty... And if you add Harm's Way to your deck, you have pretty much covered all early game threats from any deck. You will even have the open white to protect the Qasali from a bolt, and if he terrors or uses an edict, you still have the Harm's to block and kill his specter. And look he didn't get 2 life or a bonus land from Swords to Plowshares or Path to Exile

Also solid against any fast goblin, merfolk, or zoo deck.

Great with Fleetfoot Panther. Put this down for free, cast the panther, put this back down for free.

Also, panther can instead be used in the deck because it's cheap, efficient, and effectively a way to save a creature.

@Chamale: The clause looks to see "If a creature is attacking you," not just if a creature is attacking. Your own creature can't attack you and thus can't trigger this guy.

Got owned once by a friend who used these and Temple Garden. I remember him dropping two on my second turn and proceeded to cast Watchwolf. That was bad.

this card is really astonishing and as aforementioned serves just greatly as defense without even having to spend any mana.
you may even get a sweet revenge after killing the only creature on your opponent's side this way, thus being able to hit him with that guy for two on your turn.

on top of that, there's not much to worry about that card even if you play against burn or control or, to put it bluntly, decks that don't run creatures in general: 3cc for a 2/3 reacher? still not a bad deal.

@cadenblade: Actually, it does combo with Temple Garden, because temple garden is both a forest and a plains.

"Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!" Amazing card, it plays with your opponent's mind. He's always gonna be reluctant to attack with his small creatures early in the game after realizing that your deck packs these kitties. :) 4,5/5.
