There were very few cards with what would later become "vigilance" when this was printed. Yotian was a huge pain in the ass, as he had the toughness to take out smaller creatures and could attack with no fear most of the time.

Still not a bad creature for the mana, although he is a little less powerfull than he used to be.

He's strictly better than Standing Troops.

I agree with Gaussgoat -- Yotian Soldier was a good creature back in Fourth Edition days. Vigilance, a toughness of 4 that put it out of Lightning Bolt/Incinerate range, and a colorless 3 CMC to boot.

Not a bad creature even today, though it has the same woes as any artifact creature; having your Yotian Soldier obliterated by Naturalize or Disenchant just hurts more than creature removal measures.

His sword is not transparent! Just shiny. The way a sword is meant to be. Unless its bloody.

Back in the day, this guy had a decent amount of utility value. Hardly any creatures had vigilance, and the affordable colorless aspect and okay P/T (at least for the era) was good. Hell, this guy has enough sentimental value to where I might even use him in a fun deck today.
