This card needs more respect. A 3/2 flying first strike kills a very large percentage of the set. And at common, too.

An old Assault Griffin now with first strike. Good for common, but there are more playable cards for 5 mana.

One day, Wizards will print an amazing Griffin... maybe... some day...

Why they don't let me have a white Phantom Monster? Am I a bad person or what? Or why didn't they reprinted the Shepherd Of The Lost as a griffin? People must know what WotC is doing to the griffins! Stop the madnessā€¼

You laugh--"Worse than Plover Knights! And Shepherd of the Lost!" It's all about the Limited environment, and in a set without much first strike or removal and plenty of tiny fliers, this guy is a sweet bomb that can hold off armies. My opponent had him and Thalia out--how do I get through five power of first strike? It took turns and turns until I drew an out.

One of DKA's best white commons, no joke. Griffin be hungry.

Actually, there are good griffins. This guy is not one of them outside of limited, but they do exist:

Diving Griffin is good and a great target for equipment or enchantments, and Fledgling Griffin might not actually have flying all the time but he's a great 2-drop for creatures that are normally 4 CMC and higher. And then there's Griffin Sentinel, and of course the non-griffin Griffin Rider. Maybe that's not a whole lot of options, but it's enough for a deck. I made a griffin deck and I can tell you, it was really fun and had an average goldfish win on turn 7, which isn't that bad.

Hooray, the tradition of lackluster griffins lives on!

This card is horrid. Voiceless Spirit costs 2 less and gets the job done in limited much more efficiently.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
