This is a great card, especially in multi-player games. Being able to attack and not sacrifice defense is an amazing capability. 4.5/5

Copperhoof Vorrac is great with this card during combat (attack & block).

very, very epic. Use with Dolmen Gate. Vigi is nothing to scoff at.

An EDH/Commander staple when playing white.

Reconnaissance is better, although this occasionally has an advantage over it (knotvine paladin, any tap effects that you want to use before damage, etc.). My favorite part though? Use this and reconnaissance and use those tap effects twice. Brigid comes to mind here. You can even put her in combat, use her ability, have her deal 2 first strike damage, and then take her out of combat and use her ability again, all without taking damage.

Vigilance is one of my favorite keyword abilities. Especially useful in multiplayer, since you can attack a defenseless player and not drop your guard.

Smoke this one.
