Such a ridiculous card. A 3/3 with vigilance for 4 is decent, and the ability seals it. It can:
1. Screw over a creature token (usually inefficient against massive hordes of tokens, but against, say, Skirsdag High Priest...)
2. Screw over anything that abuses +1/+1 counters, like Falkenrath Torturer (bonus points if the creature is technically a 0/0, such as most of the Hydras).
3. Reset Planeswalkers on both sides of the field. Opponent's Sorin getting close to his ultimate? Your Venser running dangerously low on counters? Not any more.
4. Help abuse ETB triggers on other creatures, the best example being Stonehorn Dignitary.
5. Be either hilarious or infuriating with Venser, the Sojourner, depending on which side of the table you're on.
6. Temporarily clear the way for your other creatures to make a devastating swing.
7. Get absolutely bonkers with Sundial of the Infinite. Wait fo... (see all)

Play this with Deadeye Navigator. Keep flickering the Stag, and soon your opponent will be depleted of permanents for a turn.

It takes a special kind of lawman to Arrest a Troll Ascetic... It takes an Elk.

This artwork is so beautiful, it deserves a mythic rare ability and status. :D

Honestly, this is one of my favorite cards from Scars so far. It resets Planeswalkers. It reuses Enters the Battlefield effects. And it comes with a not completely useless body, 3/3 Vigilance for just 4 mana.

So we trade Shepherd of the Lost's Flying and First Strike for a turn 4 m***ive life boost from Ondu Cleric, and buffs for all those Hada Freeblades and Kazandu Blademasters. Not to mention what you can do to your opponent should you exile his biggest blocker or Ascension enchantments, or take back your Mind Controlled Baneslayer.

I think that's a pretty fair trade.

Really nice art, too. This is why I mostly play white.

This is the multipurpose creature in my deck, next to Flickerwisp. What this little guy can do....
- Resets Planeswalkers
- Snipes tokens
- Abuses ETB effects we all love (Personally, I use Inquisitor Exarch
- Gets rid of your opponent's biggest blocker for a final swing
- Exiles a land so your opponent can't cast any instants or flash anything on your turn
Still not enough reasons? Well then...
- Got one on the field and one in hand? Exile the one Stag with the one you just cast and when it comes back on end step, exile a planeswalker/creature/land so they can't use it on their turn
- Resets Oblivion Ring and Journey to Nowhere
- Saves your creatures from Auras
- Late-game Day of Judgment? Put this guy in, exile anything you want to save, then Day. Your creature comes back just fine
- Resets Shrines and counters
- Untaps a creature for an emergency blocker
- Get more golems with sp... (see all)

@WhereDidItGo.... I always liked this card but never deeply analyzed like you have. Nice job. You must be one hell of a badass player....

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
