I like how this card has first strike so you can let him hit and then throw a removal spell at him to pump your team (and hopefully win the game that way).

@Kurraga
Doesn't watching your king and queen get dismembered inspire you to fight harder?

Heroic is pretty clunky, but this is probably one of the more useful heroic abilities in the set. It actually works pretty nicely with Frontline Medic - attack, everything's indestructible, hit this with a Shock, everything's got +1/+1 and trample now.

Oh cool, you can see the Colossus of Akros in the background.

Easily the best Heroic creature in Theros, in my opinion. 3/2 first strike and vigilance is already very very good for an attacking creature and the anthem pump upon activating its ability is even better. I said elsewhere that Heroic needs to appear on a creature that's good enough on its own without having its ability activate reliably, and this dangerous couple is a perfect example of that. I look forward to leading the charge with them over the course of their tenure in standard.

@Wolftree - Overloaded Dynacharge does not target, so it wouldn't trigger Heroic.

This compares quite favourably with fan-favourite Mirri, Cat Warrior.

Mirri is a 2/3 First Striker with Vigilance for 1GreenGreen.

This is a 3/2 First Striker with Vigilance for 1WhiteRed.

Both are legendary, the CMC is the same, the combined power / toughness is the same, and the specialized cost requires two coloured mana for both, though Mirri is mono-coloured and naturally easier to cast.

The Power / Toughness swap actually improves the creature for aggro and combat (who needs toughness on a first striking vigilante), though making it slightly easier to kill.

In casual constructed (which is where both these cards find a home) the difference may be Pyroclasm or X-spells. There will be times when it dies and Mirri wouldn't, but there will also be times when it wins you the game and Mirri wouldn't.

This leaves the 3rd ability. Mirri has Forestwalk, which is incredib... (see all)

I remember when they first printed this back in Heroes Vs Monsters. Man those were good times...

First strike, Vigilance, higher power than toughness and a pump ability. Definitely worthwhile to throw some Flames of the Firebrand, Dragon Mantle, Martial Glory, or Cooperative Assault at this one and a few of the other more noteworthy Heroic creatures.

Things like Phalanx Leader, Favored Hoplite and Fabled Hero come to mind. Believe me, you get a pretty mean field remarkably fast. Token generators like Precinct Captain certainly don't hurt either.

You know, for all the Heroic cards in the set, there aren't a lot of cards that can actually target creatures without merking them. Well besides all of those terrible, terrible, bestow cards.
