Remember, faisjdas, this was printed in the days before Bankslayer and such. Creatures used to be costed with the assumption that they wouldn't immediately be destroyed/exiled/sacrificed/etc., unlike now.
Huh, I didn't know a s sumption was a dirty word.

The only white Djinn or Efreet... Army of Allah disapproves.

"Remember, faisjdas, this was printed in the days before Bankslayer and such. Creatures used to be costed with the assumption that they wouldn't immediately be destroyed/exiled/sacrificed/etc., unlike now."

However, this was printed after creatures such as Mahamoti Djinn, Shivan Dragon and Serra Angel -- all creatures above the baseline of one-mana-per-+1/+1 / keyword ability. They weren't above printing creatures that were aggressively-costed back then. My guess is that since this cycle is uncommon, giving the creatures a drawback was a way to keep Limited (where they are solid cards) safe from an abundance of 5/5 monsters.

Mahamoti Djinn, Sengir Vampire, Serra Angel and Shivan Dragon all has two colored mana requirement, but this has only one. So splash it into your non-white deck.

Because a 5/5 First striker with 6 was just to powerful to go without a drawback.

It's a pretty good card, in my opinion. It would be best as Green, or Blue, or...Red or Black. But still fine as White.

Would it have broken anything if this was costed 3W?
