The new card frame looks especially pretty here. This could be a win condition with Prismatic Omen, as mentioned earlier.

Looks awesome in the new frame. Speaking of which, how come none of the images have their black borders?

This card's usually not worth it unless you're playing the Omen. Just look at all the other WUBRG cards. They have such bomby effects. Child of Alara or Sliver Queen for example. If you drop this card 5th turn, you just don't get as much out of it as you should.

Like I said on the other version, you need prismatic omen for this card to be any good. anything else is just not worth the work.

Generally kind of underwhelming. Got hit with this after the guy spent ages getting mana flooded in a five player game, and found I didn't really care. Prismatic Omen would have made it devastating, but without that or maybe a ton of dual lands that have basic land types it's not very powerful.

I don't really like this card. It doesn't have such a huge effect that other 5 color cards need, considering how difficult they are to cast. Let's break this down.
Turn 5 (assuming no tricks like Prismatic Omen or dual lands)
{W} worse than healing salve (less life gain)
{U} worse than preordain/ponder(less card advantage)
{B} worse than bump in the night(less damage)
{R} worse than Lightning bolt(less damage and can only hit creatures)
{G} worse than sprout (not an instant)
(Note all the above cards are commons, this Last Stand is rare)

This also is requiring that you pulled this off will all basics, or you have the alpha or ravnica duals with the basic land types. If you use any other lands the effects will be even less fantastic, because if you use a glacial fortress rather than a plains you don't even get the life g... (see all)

"herpderp if card is not played with a tactic then it is really bad"

Seriously... in mtg...
Every card that doesn't fit in ANY other deck is automatically bad?... lol...

12 Lifeloss, Removal, Boardscontrol, 12 Life and extrem CA/CQ round 4 is nothing to laugh at. yes round four, not hard.

And the award for "Card that should be swapped out of the deck instantly for another Bloodbraid Elf" goes to...

I guess this could be fun, and the cascade deck can cast it, but most likely the effect will be minimal.
Put in a Prismatic Omen, however...

It does everything so minimally.

Actually cast this in EDH with a Prismatic Omen yesterday. Never did 28 damage with a Bloodbraid Elf.
