Aura has one common issue being that destroying the creature you destroy the aura, but recent auras either return to your hand after the creature dies, draw you card, or like this one, creates a token. Not the best aura around but certainly not bad.

So, let me get this straight, you generate a 2/2 knight with vig and then flavorfully, stack a fully armored 2/2 knight with vig on the back of an enchanted creature. You can make anything you control into a mount.

The old lady could've been an elderly Seller of Songbirds.
However, when I'l playing in limited, this is commonly on a Rubbleback Rhino. Although, that wouldn't look at righteous and valour-like if this knight was escorting a giant mothertrucking rhino around.

Overly expensive, but conceptually, I like it. Populate likes it, Vigilance is good, and a total power boost of +4/+4 onto your side of the field.

3White would have been perfectly fine, though, even at common. I mean, come on. They printed Ethereal Armor at common for White. The hell were they smoking anyways?

This is actually CRAZY GOOD in limited, especially with populate.

*** it, drop a colorless mana from this.

In my opinion, this is a bad griffin guide. Griffin guide costs three mana, this here costs five. +2/+2 and flying is superior to +2/+2 and first strike.

And in general, this aura is far too expensive manawise. If someone kills, bounce, exiles, phases, flickers or whatevers your creature in response to the aura, you get neither a token nor the aura. And if someone kills the creature, you just paid a whooping five mana for a lousy bear.

For 1 less it would be pretty playable. Now it is just another card that will see draft sideboards.

Pros like me realize the value this card gives when you add populate to the mix.
