Much more playable than sorrow's path.

I remember being very impressed by this card back in the day.

It was a LEGEND! I had heard of them. In a set which was totally sold out, utterly unavailable by the time I started playing Magic (Ice Age was the first expansion to appear after I had started playing).

Also, it was mono-colored!

To the Gate to Phyrexia rides the Knight Exemplar, her War Hawk perched on her wrist, her Attended Knight bearing a proud Capashen Standard, fluttering in the breeze as she surveys the Tainted Field before her. The Ring of Thune she wears glints in the Serene Sunset as she hefts her Loxodon Warhammer and shoulders her Angelic Armaments, gifts from Avacyn herself.

"Rally!" she cries to her Elite Vanguard. "Rally the Troops, and alert General Jarkeld that this Foul Presence will soon be Purged from the Living Lands!"

"Death or Glory!"

Hmm. Wondering if this could work rather well with Gustcloak Savior here. Swing with everything bar the general, then pull all creatures out of combat barring the two you can comfortably swap around to kill something. Nice.

For a legendary general mentioned in the flavor text of so many cards, a character so pivotal to the storyline of Ice Age, this card freaking sucks. Compare to a modern legendary soldier like Odric, Master Tactician.

I always liked him for that reason, you don't see combat strategies like this in Magic really anymore.

Hes meant to mess up the other guys declare blockers step, not to correct a mistake that you might of made during yours. Am I the only white player that isn't stuck in defense mode? Sheesh.

General Jarkeld should've had a cooler card. Or at least had +1/+1 or cost 1 less to be a little less underwhelming (preferrably both, but this is Ice Age). Ah well.

Goes good in b/w/u decks with death touch . Attack with say a couple of tidehollow strixs', and switch his chump blockers to something worth destroying.

Much better than people give it credit for. Being able to shift defense to whatever you want can be pretty awesome turn over turn.

Obviously weak as far as his stas, although casting cost isn't terrible at only 1W 3C

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
