Sure is armadillo cloak up in here.

Not strictly worse then Armadillo Cloak, because the cloak's ability is a triggered ability and so you don't gain the life until after combat damage.

I'm going to print out stickers of the original armadillo cloak artwork to paste over the art of this card - I'd feel like I was unfaithful, otherwise.

I think the one thing that's majorly different between this and cloak is that no matter who controls the creature, you gain the life for cloak.

It kind of creates a pseudo-"Vow of" aura. If you are low on life, you can attach it onto an opponents creature and you'll still gain life. If they attack you, you'd gain the life they just dealt you. Mind you, if they deal lethal, you're up s**t's creek.

I guess the other thing is that this doesn't stack with lifelink. Cloak's ability is a triggered ability, while lifelink's a static ability.

What is going on with the art?! There's a tiny goat-man and some weird dude running from a baby dinosaur. Completely random flavor.

I think they added that building into the background later, the rest of the art is NOT Ravnica. Also I know some people who wouldn't mind running 12 Armadillo Cloaks if they reprinted it a third time.

According to an article, they printed this because they didn't like Armadillo Cloak's name/flavor. Shrug. Fine with me, that just means we can all run basically 8 copies of the same card.

@steev:Armadillo Cloak, Behemoth Sledge and this. There are your 12 Armadillo Cloaks :P

Other than the lifelink difference, it's an Armadillo Cloak. I can recommend it with Dutiful Thrull in limited.

Armadillo Courage? Unflinching Cloak? Selesnya Beatdown is a thing, you know. Don't laugh. It works.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
