Turn 1: Figure of Destiny
Later, You win if they can't deal with it.
Forcing removal on a 1 drop is always worth it.

My buddy's Stormtide Leviathan deck can't stop the Fire & Lightning deck because of this guy.

His next ability reads: {0}: If Figure of Destiny is an Avatar, your opponent is about to lose the game.

Should totally be redesigned as the first ever Flip AND Transform card.

Only new players will think this card is bad. If you look at it without thinking outside the box, you would just be like "so it's essentially a 8/8 with flying first strike for 11" and that it sucks. Very good card, very unique.

Something to ponder: Why does he die (becomes a Spirit) before he becomes a Warrior?

I think it would make more sense if he:
1) Was born. (1/1)
2) Grows up training and becomes a warrior. (2/2)
3) Dies in battle, yet his fury (Red) and duty (White) keep him in the fight. (4/4)
4) As he assists his living comrades, he earns their praise. Now, fueled by their worship, becomes an Avatar and takes flight. (8/8)

Think of the deck less as fire and lightning and more as "Nostalgic RDW deck with lots of iconic red cards that we slapped a flashy-sounding name onto" and it makes more sense. =p Figure is one of the iconic red cards - despite not being all that old - and when they designed this deck they wanted to include a lot of the iconic cards.

This card made me at least a 50% return on all the eventide boxes I bought. Buy box, sleeve and ebay all Figures and Glen Elendra Archmages, keep the rest, rinse, repeat.

Kithkin: "I'm right handed why do you ask."
Kithkin Spirit: "I dedicated my life to the study of fencing."
Kithkin Spirit Warrior: "I'm going to duel him left-handed, is only way I can be satisfied."
Kithkin Spirit Warrior Avatar: " I know something you don't know. ..."

@ Dacen Octavio: Generally, a deck with Stormtide in it will have Air Servant in it too. I find that very useful for when my friend borrows my deck.

For some reason, though, I feel like his third ability should give him lifelink rather than first strike. I don't know why, but...

Flying and first strike: Once he has them, he cannot unhas them.

Oh, and just once, I want to shrink him to dodge a Reprisal.
