I like how there are so many words on this two-word card.

Help me, Elspeth-wan Kenobi, you're my only hope.

Turn one Noble Hierarch. Turn two Ardent Plea to fetch another Hierarch or Qasali Pridemage. Turn three you have enough mana to play Rafiq of the Many, and you can attack for +4 exalted and doublestrike (10-12dmg), or play Finest Hour and attack the next turn if you fetched another Hierarch.

The point is that in the first couple of turns, Ardent Plea does its job very well.

you see, you could put this in some kind of deck with only one 2 or less cc card in it (I'm looking at you, Hypergenesis) which you always cascade into for a win. I've played against two decks like that.

I'm running a casual B/W exalted flying deck, and Ardent Plea is excelent for finding Esper Stormblades and Ethercaste Knights, or even just Akrasan Squires.

Ardent Plea is fairly fast, and that it does things that can actually matter. Exalted is a strong mechanic, especially when you have 4 permanents with exalted on the battlefield. My point is, that an Ardent Plea cascading into something as weak as an Akrasan Squire still results in your attacking creature getting +2/+2, which in general terms translates to: my Grizzly Bears can trade with your Woolly Thoctar when attacking.

Flips into any number of amazing one and two drops, of which there are many, and buffs them too. Nothing wrong with that, especially since it's in weenie colors. Not quite the ugly elf, but it doesn't have to be.

"No, Elspeth, you may not have another cookie until you defeat Phyrexia."

Also, does anyone remember the Ardent Plea into Spreading Seas deck?

Why are people bashing this so hard? First turn Noble Hierarch
2nd turn Ardent Plea cascades into some exaulted creature, maybe Qasali Pridemage ?
3rd turn Rafiq of the Many and swing with your 6/6 double striker.

I love this card in my exalted deck, it's not even a question of what Its gonna pull up, wither a meddling mage or another exalted creature
