@Hunter06 et al.: WotC said this doesn't give trample because they didn't want overlap with Nylea.

That said, I'm leery of this, simply because, high mana cost or not, the mere effect might as well have the additional quality of "You have the Flagbearer creature type". I don't fancy crosshairing myself quite like that.

Sorry people Wizards didn't give you "insane broken card that would have destroyed standard." Hexproof is crazy good, look at Invisible Stalker. The ability to give all your creatures Hexproof while removing Hexproof from their creatures is insane. Yes 8 mana is steep but do you think a 2/2 with this ability would not be an auto include in every green deck for 3? Right now it is not hard to have 5 mana on turn 2 for green with Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Burning-Tree Emissary to cast Arbor Colossus. At 8 this requires 4 Emissaries to pull a turn 2 and another 2 green drop to pull a turn 3. I assume that Wizard originally play tested this card at 6 like the Archetype of Finality and Archetype of Imagination and found it too easy to get out on turn 3. At that point it leaves most standard decks with 8 or more dead draws. I think this is fair priced given t... (see all)

Finally, the card I was looking for! Now I can give my Kor Spiritdancer—wait, does that say 8 mana?

Oh well. Should be cool in EDH at least.

You always make me laugh, Wizards.
Sorry, Timmy, but I think this would be a lot better if it wasn't a 6/5, maybe a 2/3 for 5? Then it would be great in Limited, but a little broken in EDH.

Don't get why this is rated so low, it's a fantastic card for EDH. I'm definitely including this in my mono-green as soon as I can manage.

@Purplerooster When the heck did Glaring Spotlight ever NOT seem efficient at hexproof hosing??? 0_0 It's freaking one colorless mana. But for those who think this card makes thing unfun, I would have to agree with you to an extent, as Glaring Spotlight is my most hated card of all time for that reason alone. However, since wizards decided to make this whole anti-hexproof thing (seems like an oxymoron), I feel like this is DEFINITELY the card that it should have been: A color specific, hugely expensive thing, that also still appealed a little to people who like hexproof, because it gives it to all your guys.

All in all, I despised Glaring Spotlight and raged for weeks after it came out, but I don't mind this card at all.

I am glad this abomination of a card costs 8 mana so it's not going to see play in any relevant format. God I hate hexproof.
