A playable version of Temper. I like it.
Not only does it save your creature from burn or combat damage, but also boosts any tiny chump blocker up to a 4/4 fattie.

Strictly better than Sacred Boon, except if for some reason you need to mess around with -1/-1 counters on the creature.

I didn't like it at the time, but looking back, this was a pretty strong trick.

It may prevent less than three damage. You only get as many counters as the damage you prevented.

I love this card, the low mana cost, the awesome dual ability, the art that reminds me of a certain japanese cartoon, awesome!

@Mr.Wimples boros swiftblade a chump blocker? or you are being sarcastic, or you've never seen a jitte'd boros swiftblade.

This is an absolutely brutal card. It's a great trap, and allows creatures to kill attackers or blockers several times their size, or survive severe burninating. I have 3 playsets of this, and have no problems with buying more. An all around solid card.

Effectively prevents 6 damage AND gives you a permanent +3/+3 for just 1White. How is this not rated higher?

Love slapping these on Boros Swiftblades. Suddenly a chump block is a threat.

EDIT: My statement was kind of under the context that you chumped with a swiftblade, then blam, test of faith makes it a monstrosity.

Amusingly good AGAINST first strikers, letting you survive the first strike combat phase and hit harder in regular.
