The flavor text is almost a haiku. If only the last line was worded "the charge of Bartel."

Errata actually changed its function. If it becomes an Artifact, it used to be able to be targeted by Enchant Artifact spells. Now it can't be enchanted by Auras that enchant artifacts.

Vigilance in {G}{R}{B}? Interesting...a 6/5 for {3}{R}{G}{B} is pretty fantastic for the time this card was printed..

This is really an old style big boss!
6/5 for 6 was already not bad; with protection and vigilance this was a beast! Consider that being black he was already protected from most of removal (only direct damage and Swords to Plowshares could target him); with also partial protection against auras he was a badass beater!

Love the flavor of it.

You could always just use equipment and let the first ability protect it from pacifisms.

It says something about Legends that this card is impressive.

Talk about taking an axe to the color pie!


But seriously folks, for no foe being able to slow Bartel's charge, he sure can be chumped all the way to Cape Tempest and back to Hammerheim.


But seriously folks, a 6/5 vigilant un-enchantable creature for 3GreenRedBlack is pretty awesome, especially back in the day when Shivan Dragons and Serra Angels were the kings and queens of the game.

Also, anyone else notice that the color order is reversed, as 3GreenRedBlack instead of 3BlackRedGreen? Oh Legends, you silly thing, you!

@tcollins: Vigilance is green now. Not that it was true or they cared at the time they made Legends, though.

Vigilance isn't that green, even now; it's still primarily white, and Red/Black are definitely white's enemy colors.
Really cool guy, but I really feel like he needs just something, a little more extra...

Color pie? What color pie?

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
