There is nothing I don't like about this card.

Cost: Easy
Abilities: Great combination under most circumstances, but an absolute hoser against red. The weaknesses of shroud are particularly well offset in block with exalted, especially Angelic Benediction giving it pseudo-evasion.
Art: A really beautiful woman who is not anatomically terrifying upon closer examination
Flavor text: In a single sentence, tells the story of how each shard has its outlier cultures despite being cut off from the associated colors of mana.

In pauper this card is amazing.
Rare quality in a "common only" arena.

I love this card. She's just the definition of a solid creature. Any weakness you can come up with for her can be justified by the fact that she costs only two. Also a great card for global pump-up effects (and Exalted). If you manage to get enchantments on her indirectly, then you've got one tough fighter.

Pretty potent isn't she? Good for swatting small fry early on, and shroud gives you some peace of mind when you don't have to worry about lightening bolt and other burn cards. She'll help to ensure a late game, which is what white/blue loves - slow and steady.

This card lives to kill Bloodbraid Elf, I swear. I drop this any time I played Jund recently and they just kind of stare at it, lol.

The shroud makes boosting tough, but it makes removal even tougher which, at its mana cost, is perfect as far as I'm concerned.

Great in my Bant Exalted deck, but so many times I've wanted to equip Behemoth Sledge to it with no avail :P

This is the only creature ever printed with both Shroud and First Strike. WhiteBlue...I have a sneaking suspicion that they forgot to print "Defender" on it.

5 stars.

great early play creature for an UW deck. Despite her downside she is great agianst a beat down deck, for example jund and its creatures... Jund Hackblade and Rip-Clan Crasher. Terminate cant kill her because of her shroud ability and on the right deck she is pretty much untouchable because she got Blue and that means Counter Spells.

Deft Duelist and Wall of Denial are two solid creatures to have on the battlefield, and with spells like Path To Exile, Condenm, Counterspell, etc., in my hand, i have control of the battle field.

You can put Steel of the Godhead on him. Just move it to him with Simic Guildmage. His enchantment moving ability doesn't target, so he can get around shrouded creatures. It is the correct colors, too.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
