"Meh. Why a 3/1 for 2 mana in white? The color of protecting stuff. Why not a good old 2/2? Oh wait... There's a Goblin Wardriver. But hey.. that one's red? The color of breaking stuff!? What's up??"

Well, Goblins are almost always equal P/T, despite the fact that heavy beatdown is pretty much the only way to play them. And I don't think I've ever seen a (non-black) Goblin who had two+ greater power than toughness. As it is I think this works fine, since 1) Kuldoatha decks really needed the great 2/2 for 2 and 2) this guy just screams "glorious sacrifice please!" which can certainly fit white pretty well, especially given how dire the Auriok/Mirrian position is by the time Besieged rolls around.

More love for knight tribal with Knight Exemplar. This guy is really aggressively costed. Sweet art too.

What some people dont get is that according to MaRo and R&D white is

a) The second most aggressive color (No.1 being red)
Look at its fast White Weenie tactics.

and b) The second best creature color (No.1 being green).
Green gets the biggest bodies in all CMC, while white always gets the most efficient 1 and 2 CMC drops. Again look at its Weenie tactics, there's a reason why its called WHITE Weenie.

@ DarthParallax

It looks to me to be a stylized Glaive which is used, traditionally, for fighting mounted units. As for how he is holding it; it is surprisingly simple to use the leverage of the blade to swing it upwards from back to front to cleave an enemy. Its also possible that ( and it kinda looks like this to me ) that he is running and is holding the blade behind him to keep it clear.

As for the card itself, he may be delicate but he also makes a great Silverblade Paladin target as he is really vicious as a 3/1 DS. Love the art and flavor too.

This guy is awesome. I don't have to play with or against it to know. A 3/1 body for 1W is already good, and an ability that boosts a weenie deck (By coincidence the type of deck he is made for) pushes him over the top.

Kinsbaile Cavalier for fun with double strike. Not only will this card hit for 6 (and offing creatures with 3 or less toughness immediately), but the battle cry will pump the double strikers as well (The cavalier will also swing for 6).

Yes, battle cry stacks, since it's a triggered ability.

From Comprehensive Rules:
702.89. Battle Cry
702.89a Battle cry is a triggered ability. ―Battle cry‖ means ―Whenever this creature attacks, each
other attacking creature gets +1/+0 until end of turn.‖
702.89b If a creature has multiple instances of battle cry, each triggers separately.

Blade of the Sixth Pride was good. This is great. We don't see that kind of beater in white at uncommon very often.

MasterOfEtherium Isn't Typing Like This Anymore. o_o

Definitely a great turn 2 card for any aggressive deck, and with Knight Exemplar to back him up on turn 3, you're putting the opponent on a quick clock.
