First, how the hell does Gideon`s Lawkeeper stop Onyx Mage from giving deathtouch to his creatures?
Second, what do you mean with "no sweat"? Okay, your trick soaks the damage from one of the wurms. Now you`re only being dealt 12 DAMAGE. How the hell is 12 damage per turn "no sweat"?

... Anyway, quite a handy card. Great early blocker as 0/3 is likely to survive for a while, and 3 life every time it blocks is a lot. Your opponent is likely not to attack at all if you`ve got this and he hasn`t got anything able to kill it.

Secret tech against Geist of Saint Traft.

It's no Wall of Hope, but it's pretty decent in it's own right. It seems like I could make some sort of cool deck with this and Goldenglow Moth.

The advantage of Goldenglow Moth over this is that the moth flies. Yeah, it'll only block once, but that once can be Emrakul or Marit Lage.

This guy's pretty cool. Might find a way into my Cat/Lifegain deck.

Perimeter Captain is better imho, mostly because he gets a tribe to support him, and buffs other defenders (including this one!)

No, Wizards, this doesn't replace Soul Warden.

Better than that fricken butterfly at least.

ugh, better than dawnglow moth in every way. lives long enough to block twice, worth keeping around and better creature types. cool, awesome, stellar, but not happy about the disparity :(

Like the art, like the text, like the mana cost, and like the rarity. Worth a late pick in draft if you're short on 1 drops, but I'd rather see Gideon's Lawkeeper. It shouldn't see much constructed play, except maybe for a couple months in my lifegain deck until Felidar Sovereign rotates out.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
