i love this card. but i will say this, crusade has not been printed because it was just not interesting and was not liked for its helping of your opponent. as for the people saying its a bad thing they keep printing things that make other things strictly worse. the simple fact is they need to rebalance the world, and make things better.

as for things i will say about this card rather then about people is that this card should have been 2 white, and i would say it really should say something along the line of having to control a plains. then it would turn off from armageddon. so please people remember, there is always going to be cards that are strictly better. because if they don't they will and have worked themself into a corner and as things keep in that corner they will just simply have people lose interest. it is when they do things like this, and some of the other M10 and zendikar strictly better cards they peak interest from the veteran players.

Almost overpowered. I think this should at least cost {W}{W} instead of {1}{W} (I realize it doesn't matter too much, but this card just seems so powerful).

Lightning Bolt was around way before Shock -- since the beginning --, but I get your point.

This is a great card. I rate it 4.5 stars. However, WotC needs to make up their mind about printing cards that are clearly superior to existing cards. They stopped printing dual lands since they didn't like how there is almost no disadvantage to using one over the basic land. Now, they print this card, which is better than Crusade is almost every situation. Take a stance and stick with it, please.

I want a Bad Moon that only effects your creatures. Also on the subject of printing cards that make older cards useless, in this case I don't mind it. I stopped playing with Crusade because of the universal effect a long time ago. Plus Crusade is just a nostalgic card, I don't mind holding onto them even if I'm not gonna play it :)

This card wins games... I can't tell you how many games my soldier deck has won just because I've gotten 2 or 3 of these out with... especially combined with things like Veteran Swordsmith, and Captain of the watch... I love dropping turn 1. Elite Vanguard. Turn 2. Honor of the Pure. attack for 3 Turn 3. Honor of the pure. attack for 4 (my opponent is now at 13) Turn 4. Elspeth, give elite vanguard +3/+3 and flying... attack for 7 in the air. If my opponent had no answers he is now at 6 on my turn 4 and will probably loose next turn... especially if i can get my fifth land and drop a conquerors pledge... it's unfair how good this card is...

such a good card. Really good in my token deck.

@Loozar402: Glorious Anthem costs 1WW and it must cost strictly more than Honor of the Pure.
1W is right: reduced effectiveness in a multicolor deck and/or avoiding nonwhite creatures are disadvantages worth a discount of W.
A cost of 1W is practically the same as WW in a mono-white deck and makes Glorious Anthem accessible to decks with multicolor white spells; and of course a casting cost of 2 puts this card in direct competition with a lot of small white creatures and it's likely to wait in queue until turn 3 or 4 anyway.

Crusades is a classic white weenie booster, but this card blows it away. Some people complain that Wizards makes new cards that make old cards useless, but that is the nature of a game that puts out 3 or 4 expansions a year.
