even if giving it the abilities permanently would have been too powerful (and I don't think it would have been), six mana to give them until end of turn is way too much, when you've already paid 6 for a 4/4

Yeah, there definitely was no reason for his keywords to be activated instead of permanent, other than to make him useless outside of Limited. Seriously, six mana for Vigilance and Lifelink?!?

Maybe, maybe playable in limited. Still bad, though.

It makes me so sad to see such amazing artwork on such an awful card. Raymond Swanland, your work is amazing. Whoever made this cards mechanics however, wtf were you thinking?

For the same cost of its ability, you could just summon a Serra Angel and enchant it with Lifelink. That's a 4/4 with permanent vigilance and lifelink PLUS flying.

Yes, this card is absurdly bad, all thanks to the cost of the activated ability. That said, though, he's be a little too powerful if the abilities were permanent. Bear in mind, most creatures that have lifelink don't have this much power; you'd be able to attack and gain four life unless they kill it, then block and gain four more on their turn, creating an eight life swing pretty cheaply (and giving you two 4/4 angels if paired with Angelic Accord, so you hit them for 8 next turn unless they have flyers or removal).

So either this card needs to be a 3/4, in which case he's a Dawnstrike Paladin with +1 power for one extra mana at uncommon, which isn't great, or the activated ability needs to cost {2}{W}. Or keep the cost at {5}{W} and give him +2/+2 as well. That'd be powerful, but not ridiculous.

And yeah, sweet art wasted on an abomination of a card.

A 4/4 vigilance lifelink for 5White wouldn't have been too powerful, would it? I mean, Batterskull is that for White less.

C'mon, guys, he's a rhino cleric. Not the easiest job in the world, you know.
