Great card. But the good news, verse any other colors its just a Trained Armodon. Definitely maindeck worthy, because its so good against BlueBlack, and a 3/3 for 3 is still playable.

If there was no Baneslayer Angel everybody would be talking about THIS creature.

And Time Stop can counter anything but spells with Split Second, btw.

This card has won me game after game vs. blue and black decks. Power up the stag with some extra abilities and it's over pretty quickly. He sure is a target for lightning bolts though...

Awesome card for any SB that can produce Green.

This is the figurehead of my Elk Tribal deck!

For anyone saying this is real, look at it's tail! It has a 5 foot long tail! There aren't any stags or deer with that in reality, so quit whining about it. It's a bad A$$ creature!

Not bad! A poser for those counter-happy blue mages and those Doom Blade-happy black mages.

Amazing card in both maindeck and side-deck. Green's Paladin en-Vec for sure. Reminds me of what people thought Mirri, Cat Warrior was when she came out back in Exodus alongside the Paladin. Its basically Scragnoth, but much better as it costs 1 less and sacrifices the 1 toughness (small sacrifice) for Pro. Black (huge boon). Very hard to get rid of.

Amazing with cards like Mark of Asylum as it eliminates nearly every form of non-white removal your opponent can play against you.

The lack of supported creature type, double green and worthlessness against anything but a black or blue player ensures he will only find places in very specific metas or in decks that are EXTREMELY weak against UB.

It's probably the best UB hate out there right now. I run a UB mill deck that can barely answer this. At best I'd need two Marsh Casualties with kicker. Of course, that's why I SB Gatekeeper of Malikir ;)

For once have no bad thing to say on the con side of a card, this is legitimally pretty much a 100% pro. It's true if your facing red it can still be lightning bolted, but for a green card that's only 3 mana, it's just wow. Uncounterable and protection blue and black dodges a lot of removal, and since its not huge or carrying a gigantic mana cost your not tearing your hair out if it does somehow die. Could see it being a real terror in a simple green white deck with a behemoth sledge in it, making a 3 mana 3/3 into a 5/5 trample lifelink uncounterable protection blue and black. Besides if your playing it in green you can use bant colors, for bant charm to counter those lightning bolts.
