This card's actually pretty much a bamf in limited. 3/3 flier for 5 is good (not phenomenal, but good) and his ability to boost your other little guys like Moon Heron, Lantern Spirit and the Midnight Haunting tokens into very relevant attackers is great.

He won't win you the game on his own back, but his body will go a long way towards getting you there itself, and the ability stapled on to him can go miles as well.

Sweet artwork.

Like mentioned with Gallows Warden, the amazing artwork, name, and flavor text are being mocked by its weak mechanics. I'm not even joking when I say that I'm sort of depressed over the lack of usefulness of the two half Spirit Lords.

Decent, but not worthy of constructed.
The Avacyn flavor is nice though.

It's not that it is a bad card. A 3/3 flyer for 5 has always been good in limited. But as a lord, it really under performs.

Poor thing... It tries so hard to be a good card.

Oh well, there's always next set

Ok in limited, blows in constructed, even in spirit tribals. 1/5

Spirits are a tribe that all have good evasion- either flying, unblockable, hexproof, or some combination therof.

Although they aren't as powerful as, say, Specters-- they DID have a whole Block based on them in Kamigawa. They were never really going to make a good efficient Lord for either Specters or Spirits because those Tribes are- actually- just strictly more powerful (in the normal sense of the word, not in the strategic sense- please forget about tempo for a sec)- than Elves, Goblins, Merfolk, Soldiers, etc.

I don't know off the top of my head if there is a potentially supportable Tribe in the other colors that is like Specters or Spirits- maybe Trolls for Green? But yeah- not every Tribe can have a Vampire Nocturnus. Nor should they.

That said, it would be quite easy to make this strictly more powerful with a simple art alter:
just give Mace Windu's ghost back his purple lightsaber ;D

EDIT: Drogskol Captain, eh Wizards? Fine. I will stop making cl... (see all)

A 3/3 flyer for the cost of five, can boost other spirit creatures +1/+0. Really helps with weaker cards like Lantern Spirit and to the Spirit tokens. But I really like the artwork on this card its awesome.

Maybe if it was 4 CMC or +1/+1 to all spirits, it could be usful, but this is terrible...
