This card is a house. I've been on the receiving end of it many times, and each time it makes me cringe. The Knight clan is simply butter added on, since it combos with Knight Exemplar who is also terrifying.

When you look at white weenie in general, this card fits in perfectly, and gives you a potentially huge threat for very little cost. Sure it can be bolted, but it can also swing for horrendous amounts of damage if left unanswered.

A great one drop. One of the few that doesn't find itself relegated to the status of dead draw or chump blocker in the late game.

Anyone notice how the most broken knights are all chicks? Hero of Bladehold, Knight Exemplar, this

She looks like Mary Jane from the spiderman movies! :O

Also good in white blue control, level it up just enough so you have enough mana open for their turn :)

Everyone complaining about having "to waste their second turn leveling up Student of Warfare" sound ridiculous to me. Would you rather have a solid 3/3 first striker who can attack on turn 2 or have a "stronger" creature come into play, but most likely have summoning sickness?

And the thing about level up creatures-- you don't HAVE to level them up if you don't want to. If you have better cards in your hand that you'd rather use, pay the mana for them instead. The leveling up is nice because as long as the creature's on the field, you can level it up. If you choose not to level it up now, you can do so later and make them stronger. And if the cards in your hand wouldn't benefit you at the moment or you have insufficient mana to play them, you can always just tap the mana and level up rather than having them sit there and do nothing for your turn.

I'm not an avid fan of level up creatures-- this is probably one of the few very usable ones out there. But a solution for those who gripe ... (see all)

Why is this rated so low? It's a 1/1 for 1 playable on turn 1, a 3/3 first strike for 3 playable on turn 2, and a 4/4 double strike (which is almost 8/8 first strike) for 8 as early as turn 4. Three competitively costed creatures payable in installments is a wonderful card, so I don't see why it's not voted closer to 5.

Also, it's a girl. Stop calling her a "him."

This is a very good card unchecked. Very good.

Personally, I love this card. She is a powerful one mana card, something I appreciate, as I don't like having to wait for five mana to come around to have removal worthy threats on the board. Three damage turn two with one card is AMAZING. As others have pointed out, yes, she dies to removal. So does Baneslayer Angel. That doesn't stop people for paying $35 for her. The really nice thing about levelers is that no matter what turn you get them, they're useful. A turn one Elite Vanguard is nice, but by turn seven, not as great. And, if you have something you'd prefer to play on turn two you can do that instead. Since level up isn't an echo cost or anything like that, you can chose to forgo that early three damage to play your Honor of the Pure, or other two drop card. The nice thing about level up is that it gives players options, and for the terminally mana screwed ways to deal damage.

On the subject of the art: I th... (see all)

People giving this card under 4.5/5 obviously never saw a Student of Warfare in action...

3/3 for 3 mana is great anyway, as you can pay this over a few turns if you have spare mana makes this incredable and flexible.
the 4/4 double strike stage doesn't seem to brilliant but good to have anyway
