Crazy good in limited. You can put this on Delver of Secrets for a possible 5/4 flyer on turn 2. This is one of the best straight forward enchantments ever printed. Take note, and pick early!

I like it. Auras are usually overlooked because the risk of losing two permanents to one removal spell is to great. To compensate for this auras need to ether have recursion like rancor or angelic destiny or be really strong. The fact that they made this a common gives me hope that auras may be viable again soon.

nemokara said: "Giant Strength is not really a valid comparison, since auras in general have come a long way since 1999."

Actually, it's that distance that's the cause for complaint. Cards just get bigger, better, more effective, and cheaper - all at the same time.

See Kryptnyt:

"Compare to the recently printed Nimbus Wings and Magefire Wings.
Considering that white is a color that likes auras, and multicolored casting costs are supposed to make spells stronger, this aura was really pushed."

You don't even need to go back 13 years to find clear, telling evidence of the game's general power boost. A few years suffices nicely.

@SeiberTross That's exactly what happened in one of my games last night. I felt kind of bad about the win though; I ended up just winning on turn 5 because my opponent didn't draw anything to deal with it.

In limited, this card does ravages when put on Geist of Saint Traft or Invisible Stalker... a turn 3 3/3 unblockable hexproof attacker is quite a threat, while a turn-four, evasive 4/4 hesxproof body hitting for an evasive 8 gives you the game, like 90%+ of the time...

I saw someone use this + Sanctuary Cat and proceeded to beat his opoonent down with the 3/4 monstrosity that is out of range of Smite the Monstrous and bigger and tougher than most fliers in block

He gave the kitty a Butcher's Cleaver to finish his opoonents

Many giggles and chuckles were heard that day, a housecat killing a player with the power of flight and a butcher's cleaver...

The lesson here, lads and lasses, is never make assumptions. This was a two-of in a legacy champ's deck.

Has seen play in Standard and Legacy (mainly with hexproofers).

Take that, Aura haters!

For two mana, giving a beefy beater evasion and a little extra boost looks pretty good.
