Weak card. Shame that the art looks awesome. Maybe if it was an instant and had draw a card, 3.5/5 rating.

I dont think I would play this if it cost 0 mana.

When I first started learning Magic, I learned to hate this card. It was featured in the demo game I played, and I was always sad to see one - or, the horror, more! - in my starting hand. It was like having one card less.

Oh, and I still feel the same. Life gain at the cost of card advantage is one of those things I truly hate in this game.

This is one of the best standard cards you can find in white decks.
You pay 1 any and 1 white for FOUR LIFE!!!

It's weak for lifegain, and lifegain is unimpressive to begin with.
I might consider playing it with a cantrip, but until then, no way.

There are so many cards strictly better than this that it's not even funny. (And a few that may as well be except for the tiny niggle that they're vulnerable to Remove Soul, et al)

Oh wait, yes it is.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
