You're forgetting convoke. This + many tokens makes it easy to drop it on turn four or five.

Tap two creatures and you get to remember Sir Shandlar of Eberyn!

I think it's cool that it has enormous crystals FOR ARMS.

@Quang, reduces it by 1 or by ONE mana of that creature's color.
Tapping three creatures reduces it to 3GreenWhite. Five mana for a 4/7? Sounds perfectly reasonable to me.

This works with Eldrazi spawn. You can tap them to reduce his cost then sac them to pay for it.

This guy is designed for a Saproling deck. Tap 6 tiny little 1/1 creatures you just sorta get once every so often (or not so often with Pollenbright Wings or Mycoloth) and this guy is 2 CMC. White's the best secondary color for Saprolings anyway.

That's why it has convoke... added to the fact that its the Selesnya guild, it shouldn't be too hard to get it for free.

but guys, if you tap eight creatures then it's free!

This is a decent card, and Convoke is a great ability, but it's still just too expensive. You have to tap so many creatures to make its cost reasonable that it's just not well-balanced. If it were a 6/7, with all of the same abilities, or 4GW with everything else the same, then it would be well-balanced.

On the other hand, giving it Vigilance was a great choice! It enhances its 7 toughness quite nicely, and adds to its flavor perfectly (it being a sentinel and all). Awesome artwork, too!

A solid 3 out of 5 stars, and maybe even a 4 out of 5 stars! This just goes to show you that even Ravnica's Common cards were decent!

Yhe cost is symply too high to be a good card, high toughness and vigilance is a good combo though..

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
