I think the reason why she isn't wearing much isn't because of fanservice, but rather because the Auriok don't really wear that much--if you look at Accorder Paladin, or the people on Frantic Salvage from the same set, they're not wearing full armor, or even shirts.

As for her as a card, her abilities are quite good--when she attacks, just by herself she's basically attacking with seven points of damage. Now imagine her with Honor of the Pure of True Conviction (or worse, both--that could kill a player if they, for some inexplicable reason, don't block). She's an amazing card with so much potential.

I don't know if I'd rather be her horse or Knight Exemplar's...

Two of these swing in together for 20 points of damage all told...that's pretty impressive.

Just a quick tip but try pairing her up with veteran's armaments in extended. Those cards were made for each-other and it's a fun combo.

Yes, she should work with Exalted. If she attacks alone, both the exalted trigger and her soldier-spawning trigger go on the stack. She gets an exalted buff, then some soldiers show up and are attacking.

It should still work even if you resolve the abilities in the opposite order and have the soldiers come out first. The soldier tokens will have a property "attacking" but they did not actually "attack"(meaning 'were declared as attackers'), so Hero of Bladehold did "attack alone" even if reinforcements showed up. And Exalted only cares about the state of your creatures when it triggers anyway, not when it resolves. So yeah, swing away.

Why is she not getting 5 stars? She is a knight (Knight Exemplar), makes tokens (Elspeth Tirel) a 3/4 body and has battlecry, what more do you need for a WW deck. She is a decent top deck with the exclution of Sun Titan and Baneslayer. Plus she is a baby Grave Titan...

@andyhall23: They are just soldiers, is all. They have no other type. Not even human. AFAIK no card outside Innistrad block creates human tokens.

Well, consider the following. Knight Exemplar is wearing a bunch of armor, and that's all gotta be pretty heavy. Also, she's not making you indestructible, just the other knights. As far as she's concerned, you're replaceable.
Hero of Bladehold isn't wearing much armor at all, so she's gotta be significantly lighter. However, she's also a human on Mirrodin, so she's got metal in her skin. No telling how much that has to hurt.

Its like a baby white Grave Titan, except its a knight and thus can pair with Night Exemplar and be even more ridiculous.

More like "Hero of babehold".
