I don't care if it's harder to trigger. It's still a freaking Lightning Helix.

BA. NA. NAS. Repeating lightning helix on a 3/3 flier. Definitely going to be the star of my Set Boros Guild Deck.

Razia's Purification is nuke, this is orbital? Boros are serious about their business.

When did Gatherer ratings become "2/10 would not hit" parties? What in the galloping god damn is this doing with a sub-4 rating?

It's a CMC 4 3/3 flyer that repeatedly shoots Lightning Helixes at people. Does it need to go grab your lands for you at drafts and fetch you Red Bulls in order to merit the fourth star? Jesus Christ.

More white cards with giant lasers in the art. I approve.

She's pretty competitive I think; Huntmaster of the Fells is a pretty decent power comparison:

They're both four-drops, Huntmaster gives a token while Avenger has flying, Huntmaster can become a 4/4 while Avenger is a 3/3 that can effectively be a 6/3 with Battalion, they both give you life, etc.

When you consider Huntmaster is a mythic and Avenger is a rare, she looks very solid.

Give this haste and then take out your opponents Firemane Avenger they played last turn.

I agree with DoragonShinzui some people aren't seeing the big picture. She is a 3/3 flyer for 4 mana, she is playable for that reason alone. Look at Assault Griffin that card is a 3/2 flyer for 4 mana. The next part of her ability is Lightning Helix when you have Battalion. Boros has the best mana curve out of the Gatecrash tribes, you can easily get Battalion the turn you play her or the next turn. Triggering Battalion should be easy if you know how to draft weenies. Add to the fact that she Lightning Bolts any potential blocker out of the way, that is insane. This has become a race, you are gaining 3 life a turn and they are losing 6+X life per turn. X is any number greater than 2 assuming the other attacking creatures are 1/1 weenies. In the worst case scenario you are dealing 8 damage per turn.

I find it funny that people are whining about her not having Haste, if she were to have haste then she would be a mythic. L... (see all)
