This card actually means a lot to me. When I was really really young and new to magic me and my friends would play super casual magic on the kitchen table; not caring if we had good or bad decks just wanting to have fun and play our big cool Timmy creatures. And this was mine, I couldn't wait to get the mana to play this cool guy, because he was about the only "big" creature I owned.

I just love the flavor. Maybe the cabal sneaks a few sinkholes under the arena, or perhaps they cast nearly invisible spells to guard them. Who knows? Whatever they are gameplay-wise, I still love them.

Doran, the Siege Tower. Not brilliant, but...

Alternatively, Training Grounds makes this hilarious.

Looks like it rocked in limited formats. Also nice for beginners- the flavor makes it an attractive card, despite the overcosting.

Like Grassland Crusader, this is another Onslaught card that works better with Scourge cards. You get rewarded for playing high cost cards(for white I always think Reward the Faithful, throw in some green and Krosan Drover and Accelerated Mutation come to mind).

At 4 mana, this might have seen constructed play, though it was contending with Ravenous Baloth. It's only overcosted by 1, maybe 2, and even still this guy was fine for cleaning up limited games.

Run with Preeminent Captain and your overcost issues are solved, well at least for casting him. even then there are still many better soldier combos out there that use Preeminent Captain.

The definition of overcosted.

Casting cost is 3 to expensive, but the abilities themselves aren't so bad. If you gona run this I recomend a few Heartstones and/or a Meekstone, and/or an Infinate mana combo.

They really are crowd favorites in Type 4 drafts.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
