A good card, but the life gain mostly acts like a deterrent unless you can force an attack with cards like Rage Nimbus. As a life gain card on its own, not so great, but still a good, cheap wall.

AWESOME for boros if you want to play defensively instead. Imagine carrying a boros fury shiled, dropping lust for war on the enemy, and sitting back. They attack (they have to) they take 3 damage, you gain 2 life (or more) and then if they'll actually break through, just fury shield em.

Oh yes.

It's like a white Steel Wall with a bonus.

Oh, I think I'll just block with ALL MY WALLS.

Defender tribal strikes again!

I'd love to have this card today. Blocks any aggro creatures all the way up to Boros Reckoner, and gives you 2 life a turn.

Love it. Low-cost, high toughness creatures have always appealed to me (I usually play pretty slow decks), and this card gives me a reason to play with my buddies Wall of Denial, Steel Wall, Wall of Frost, and others all over again.

Can't do anything with Walls?

W/B With Bond. And/or the Felidar Soveriegn

White for your big life gainers (This guy, Wall of Reverence, White Zendkion, Wall of Bone...)

1. Don't forget he's a soldier. (Even without a ton of defenders he can be fantastic D with some synergy.)
2. Don't forget you can block one attacker with multiple defenders.

I like to use him with white/blue defenders/walls and human/kor/merfolk soldiers.
I love this dood, 5/5 defender lord imo. Very white.

The art is very similar to Mageta the Lion.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
