Mostly jank, but I can't help feeling this would be hilarious with Ajani's Pridemate in a white weenie deck.

Hope they don't attack with creatures that have two or greater power. Otherwise, this expensive card would be only slowing your inevitable demise. Even in multiplayer, this card comes down too late and doesn't scale well against the size of the average creature in the format.

I understand that you can nullify pretty much all combat damage with Righteous Cause in conjunction with Humility. However, there are plenty of cheaper cards that can do just the same: Watchdog, Weakstone, Juntu Stakes, Caltrops, Thunderstaff.

Better than Orim's Prayer if you plan on attacking, or if your playing multilayer.

Severely overcosted. Compare to Hissing Miasma, which is functionally better.

While I will admit that it is not too great of a card, and that it does cost more than I would like to pay, it isn't as bad as most people are pointing out.

There is a big difference between "Whenever a creature attacks, you gain 1 life." and what others are apparently reading as "Whenever a creature attacks you, gain 1 life."

This is not just for soaking up damage when you are on the defensive. Crank out those soldier/human/spirit tokens, start turning them sideways, and you gain life. Does that make it leaps and bounds better? No. But at least it is better that some of you are giving it, imo.

2.5/5 High cost, low impact. Decent in WW or tokens that may also card about life gain. Not terrible, but not great either.

EDIT: better in larger games where more creatures would have more chances to trigger this, so maybe a 3/5?
