Stinks deep, and should be ignored.

At the very least, Ephara gets a nice bit of art here.

Easily the worst of the Fonts, and perhaps the worst card in the set. You're paying 1 more mana than Angel's Mercy for this effect; even in two increments and at half-instant speed, that's very bad.

Play as 2-drop, sits on the battlefield for ages helping with devotion until late in the game when you really need 7 life. But you're still paying 5 mana for 7 life, which is just terrible. Bad card.

Well, if you really need the extra enchantment for Ethereal Armor and/or Sphere of Safety...
Yeah no, there are better things out there.

Technically, you can activate this a turn before you could play Angel's Mercy. But I think the main use here would be to have it out for Constellation and Devotion and only sac it when you really need the life.

I'm surprised we get a lifegain enchantment as bad as this from the block that gave us Ordeal of Heliod.

Sunbeam Spellbomb is an utility artifact that gives 5 life for two mana. So tell me:
Why exactly does this utility enchantment need to cost 250% more mana, but only give 40% more life?

The whole Font cycle as a whole could have passed as 1cc enchantments instead of just Font of Fertility.
But out of the other four, this one definitely could have gotten a cost of White without any worries whatsoever.

What this should have been:

     Font of Vigor White
     Enchantment
     White, Sacrifice Font of Vigor: You gain 5 life.

It's like Wizards was afraid the Font cycle could actually be used efficiently with Constellation cards and as T1 opening.
