The next time they make a shout out to an old card like Gift of the Woods, they better make sure it's playable.

This could easily have been 1Green compared to this old card or Contaminated Bond.

Why does this feel like a reprint? Isn't there a similar card in Homelands? Alliances?

Lowest rated card in Standard.

Is this one of R&D's less funny jokes?
Does a bear take a shit in the woods?

Every now and then, I have flashbacks to Homelands and Fallen Empires when I look at Innistrad. Maybe it's the extreme focus on creature types, the mechanics that only work in block, or the feeling of doom that fills the set. And then I see stuff like this and wonder... This... thing... belongs in Homelands or Fallen Empires. It costs too much, does nothing, and seems proud of it. Wow!

Not even limited-worthy. Now that's the sign of a true crappy card.

Easily the worst card in DKA.

Such a shame when good art gets wasted on chaff.

Apparently someone on the design/development team thought that cards like Viridian Harvest and Luminous Wake were undercosted. Even though those cards were very rarely played, even in Limited. Ugh. Surely there are ways of trying to prevent power creep that don't make you feel as bad as this card does.

@bfellow: Unfortunately, this will only trigger once per combat, and thus doesn't work with Palace Guard-type effects. It would have to say "Whenever enchanted creature blocks a creature" in order for that to work. So it's even more terrible than you think.

Put it on the opponents big guy he's been saving to block your stuff.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
