3.5/5 because banding with high toughness can be kind of powerful in groups. It's overcosted, true, but if you're playing a banding deck these days it's fairly obvious it's only going to be seeing casual play. I'm tempted to put a banding deck together though, just to take to the game store and confuse all the people who have never heard of it.

@The_Trendkill: In what way is the name strange? A phalanx is simply a military formation, and the soldiers which constitute it are obviously from Kjeldor, thus they are a "Kjeldoran Phalanx". Simple, really.

I love me some banding, but creatures with banding were almost all over costed if they were larger than 1/1

I've put down some serious casual beats with this guy. 4/5 for nostalgia and the art.

Banding is great with first strike, and it's great with huge tougness. Having both, though, is probably unnecessary, and has unfortunately warranted a huge mana cost. He's cool, but six mana is really just too much.

I like the facist flavor text.

The first strike is big with banders

Not that I care about the card at all, but it gets a 3/5 from me just for having one of the strangest names of all the cards in Magic. It's up there with Hyalopterous Lemure (coincidentally, also from Ice Age).

I resent this card, deeply, for taking up multiple rare slots in multiple packs that I opened. So expensive. So not worth it.
