Random Card Comment

I admit, the 'sleeper' enchantments were one of my favorite cycles. Possibly because when I first started magic, the Urza's cycle was myvery first booster pack purchase. But I think I like the flavor of enchanted statues that 'awaken' when they are threatened. This is an especialyl flavorful card for that. As your enemy comes cloer (your life drops) the statues that adorn you fortress suddenly begin to come to life to repel the intruders and fight back. To top it off, the original type of this card was even 'guardian'. It somewhat puzzles me that unlike Ivory Guardians this was errated to just 'soldier' not 'giant soldier'.

Anyway, it may not be the easiest slepper to awaken, but it's fairly cheap and I love the flavor, plus it has nostalgia for me because I enjoyed the cycle and still like to make decks around the mechanic for casual paly.

Would playing Enchanted Evening and this result in a draw?

When you have 10 or less life, it would turn into a Creature. But it would turn into an Enchantment Creature, and thus try to turn into a creature again, and again, until one of them were destroyed or you went to 11 or more health.

Not so easy condition to fullfill, with only a 3/5 "vanilla" creature as a reward. Consider me not impressed.

Its a state based effect, not triggered ability. Not sure what would happen, but I dont think a state based effect infinite loop could draw the game. Only triggered ability infinite loop would.
