I wasn't that amazed by Allies when i first saw them in Zendikar, but with Wordwake there are now cards that make me think this tribe is getting potential like that Hada Freeblade one-drop, Join the Ranks for double-instant speed triggers, Jwari Shapeshifter to copy Allies at a very low price, and this guy, which allows great mana accel.

If you manage to cast a kicked Rite of Replication with this guy you should be able to win the game with some serious cip/etb trigger madness.

I think this card will see play outside of Ally decks, in decks that run Allies for consistent beaters but don't focus on them to win. I actually run 3 of these with 4 Kazandu Blademasters right now in my G/W ramp deck. Having two of these guys out on turn 3 is house.

Also, they make for some interesting considerations on the order of casting creatures, as you'll want to try and drop your allies using lands before you tap this guy for mana for other things.

Hmm, with this you might even be able to pull off a 5-color ally deck, taking the best of each color.

Free from the Real, Harabaz and one more ally gives infinite mana.

UG Millies w/ Rite Of Replication to kick on any other ally as a wincon. Oh, and mdakw576: bombs aren't always creatures. Imagine using this to fuel a game-ending Fireball, or, as mentioned, Omnath.

ramping and color fixing for gold ally decks. enough mana to kick a Rite of Replication. yet another infinite combo for Staff of Domination. this quite simply *makes* allies. tap for blue, counter your removal. tap for white/black/red, remove your threat. tap for lots of any color, play any 5cc ally on turn 3 or 4.
allies might not see great tournament success, but i guarantee they'll be just a fun as sliver decks in casual. and if you don't play for fun, you take life too seriously.

Yay, now I can finally pay that kicker on Rite of Replication! This is much better than Gemhide Silver because you only need to tap this little guy to get all the mana you'd get from tapping all the allies. Granted, you'd be restricted to one color, but that's a very small setback. You'd rather be attacking with your allies rather than using them as Birds of Paradise.

mdakw576- The problem with allies is that some of the good ones are expensive (i.e. 5 mana). With this, you can get them out turn 3.

This should be the highest rated card in the game in my opinion. Regardless, I'm getting 4 of them.

i think this card will help to break allies, and i do think people are not rating this anywhere near as insaine as it really is.

broken in half- serious accel and combo potential (pemmin's aura, freed from the real) to boot
