Handy little life gain card.

Assuming no land ramping shenanigans, this is 10 life. On turn 5.

Rest for the Weary beats this card up and steals its lunch money.

it is a nice card, combine it with kor cartographer, 6 lands turn 5, 12 life, and it reinforces emeria sky ruin, in a play as many plains as you can theme

Don't underestimate this card in the current meta. Assuming of course you have at least 16+ Plains in your deck.

10 life?! OR more! I didn't realize how good this card is when I first looked at it! This card rivals Heroes Remembered.

just lifegain can be boring, but it can also keep you alive longer. This works well with Felidar Sovriegn. 7 Plains=14 life,and your almost to the win condition.

I almost want to make a mono white aggro deck utilizing cards like this,Armored Ascension, Emeria, the Sky Ruin and Kor Cartographer, but im not sure that the deck would be that effecient.

This card is insane for mono white life gain decks. NUF said.

There's a card that can make this card worth not having, and it is in the Shadowmoor block, I believe. It's called Everlasting Torment.

It's not a very good card, even for a lifegain deck. There's no card advantage, board advantage, and it only combos with a few select cards (Sanguine Bond, Cradle of Vitality, Felidar Sovereign). I've made a semi competitive lifegain deck (I say semi competitive as while it's capable of winning, it's a lot slower than most of the normal aggro decks out), and this card won't get a slot in either the main board or the side board - 10 health on turn 5 just isn't enough; that's only 1 to 2 extra swings from the opponent. If you want a 5 drop that gives you health, go with Baneslayer Angel. =)
