Well THIS is exciting. W/U has some cool humans in Theros.

This seems incredibly good. Scry is always relevant, and making itself bigger is also amazing. I can see this being a main part of a competitive deck in the future.

I must be going blind, I almost thought that said put a +1/+1 counter on it and scry 1...

Yup, four of please.

@Tiggurix - Agreed on the flavor bit, on the other hand what else are they going to use? Commander wouldn't fit, he only buffs himself. He's not a tactician, he's too much in the battle for that. He's supposed to be a staple, he doesn't work so well as a hero. I think they were left with a wizened footsoldier who thinks more for himself than perhaps his commanders would like.

@OrgasmandTea - You're thinking too much like a red/white soldier - this one is blue. Defense is more important than offense. His magic blue hand wouldn't make sense on his spear, it's instead focused around his shield.

A hell of a lot of potential here. The ability to scry in a human tribal deck would be invaluable. I like it. I wish abilities that targeted him triggered heroic as well, for the sake of equipment. I'll try to make it work regardless.

Heroic" is not a mechanism that works well with the flavour of hoplites. The point of hoplites is that they fight in phalanx formation (though you'd never know that from watching 300); they have large shields and long spears so that they can protect each other and stab the enemy from a distance. In this formation, the hoplites were equals, so a mechanism that caters to playing favourites just seems weird to me to put on an alleged hoplite.

It's pretty cool, but I'm not quite sure what's the point in having a fistful of powerful blue energy, BEHIND your shield. What are you gonna do with that? Keep your Budweiser cold? They should have called him Budweiser Hoplite. F***ing alchy.

Ok in limited if you got some pump spells or other stuff that targets. Takes too much effort outside of it to be good.

Welp. This is going to be a bomb. Calling it now. Someone will make a deck with this as its centerpiece and it will destroy everything. A growth effect on a card that isn't green and library sifting in colors that can make use of both, that also happen to be the best combination for control. AND its a 2 CMC uncommon. Could this be our next Snapcaster?

Edit: I was wrong. I was VERY wrong.
