Was hoping this had vigilance. Darn.

I'm not so sure of its applications but it has great art.

This guy was made for my Ancestor's Prophet/Celestial convergence deck. The weakness being removal of the latter (and sometimes the former as well.

Also potentially useful in an Enchanted Evening deck.

Man, this guy's desperate for anything.

I used this in a deck based around Enduring Renewal, for obvious reasons. The deck worked fairly well, but I didn't wind up sacking the Martyr very often. It was valuable just to have it in play as a safety net though. The goal of this deck was to pull off one or more of several infinite combos, but I rarely achieved one. It turned out to be harder to pull them off than I thought, and I changed my mind about Enduring Renewal being insanely broken. Gameplay with this deck was surprisingly balanced and when I did succeed, it felt like a real accomplishment.

That first ability is very noble and white, but red got it a year earlier: Goblin Chirurgeon.

Even with just the first ability, it'd be decent. A 1/1 one-drop that can shield your later fatties from Murder is nice to have. Admittedly, the big drawback is that it's not a surprise, so your opponent will play around it, but it's still nice.

So glad they made this a cleric.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
