Nice combo Nate.

I really like this guy, a more elegant version of Ironfist Crusher. Plus his flavor text is pure white.

yeeeah indestructibility is pretty much the best combo with this thing. Maybe a spidersilk net just to be safe

Andrew's Occasional Random Card of the Day #21 - 7/18/2011 - Palace Guard

This ability has always intrigued me, though I don't know that I've ever played with a card that had it. I've never really heard people talk about Palace Guard, and Avatar of Hope was never the Avatar people were discussing either. I wondered if the ability had ever been on a creature that was actually respectable, and my search turned up Thoughtweft Trio. The champion ability is rough, but he's a guy I could get behind.

Whenever I see Palace Guard, I get an impulse to stack a bunch of Auras on top of him with things like regenerate and deathtouch to make a one-man impenetrable force. By himself, though, with only one power, he's more just like a three-mana fog against any kind of army other the other side.

I imagine, though, that just as he appeals to me on some level, he appeals to casual or newer players as well.

"He... (see all)

if u don`t have anything that`ll give it indestructibility than i would advise you to use these cards with the palace guard. Pariah`s Shield and Blinding Powder. That means u can block any amount of creatures and take no damage at all.

+ Fight to the Death

same with Prized Unicorn...which is better because they HAVE to block with ALL creatures.

Gorgon Flail is still just about the easiest to use, but it only allows for 2 kills. A big umbra would bump that up a long way...if they were stupid enough to attack you.

Umm... Can you say Heart of Light & Pariah's Shield?

This guy and Meglonoth are what make Righteousness better than Smite.

Combos well with many other cards: indestructibility as mentioned, also gorgon flail to take out 2 creatures. I have it in my Doran, the Siege Tower deck. Decent common.

A real cheap early-game defence basis is this guy combined with an Accorders Shield. Go to hell, Red Zerg Tactics. GO TO HELL!

Anyone else seeing Spirit Mantle being useful on this guy?

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
