Odd that a man riding what appears to be a Ceradon would have 0 power...

I always really liked the art on this card. I've never put him in a deck, but I like it.

Got mana? He ain't cheep, but he does the job he's there for. And a Heartstone or Training Grounds helps out on your medical bills.

I'll admit that he's more versatile than Shield of the Ages, but that's offset by the fact that he still costs a TON to use. Even with Heartstone or Training Grounds the cost is pretty high.

I would really like to see WotC come up with some kind of prevention-for-mana white abilities that don't suck. Prevent 2 for {W} maybe?

@themisna: I agree, great art. Most of Fallen Empires was rife with that kind of thing: the sort of card where you look at it and go "man, that card art is awesome. It's a shame the card itself is such crap."

I have a question about the prevent damage ability:

It says "Prevent the next 1 damage..." (at least on the card I have, it only says "Prevent 1 damage" in the picture above). How does this exactly work? Can I pick the damage myself? And how do you determine what damage is "next"?

The problem is, that two creatures are blocking a creature I control, but one is a Stinkweed Imp (in effect Deathtouch), whose 1 damage alone, due to its special power, will kill my creature. This is the damage I want to prevent, not the damage from the other attacker, who can't kill my creature anyway.

Is it just me, or does this look like it's torn from the pages of a post-apocalyptic manga?

Even 20 years later, this is still the only card that can repeatedly prevent damage to creatures or players, without tapping or any additional costs or drawbacks.
