Most of the time this is just a very efficient, early threat. A 2/2 with flying for two mana is great. The protection from enchantments is only rarely useful, but considering it'd be good even without it, who cares? It's just icing on the cake.

Unless of course you're comboing it with Enchanted Evening. Then that's just wacky.

That's pretty rare protection for sure. Just toss some equipment on him.

Such an awesome card. A 2/2 flyer for 2 is pretty good, even with the multicolor requirement. Then you throw in the seemingly random protection from enchantments and you've got something really solid. There's the obvious O-Ring and Journey, but then there's all the little random cards that you don't think about until it comes up. Powerstone Minefield got you down? Send your griffin buddy over it to express your displeasure to your opponent more directly. Being Pestilenced into oblivion? Slap a Pariah's Shield on Señor Azorius and tell that pesky plague to suck it.

Now if only Wizards would print more Griffins that were this good. Griffin Canyon, Zuberi, Golden Feather, and Griffin Rider are support cards in search of a tribal at the moment.

A flying bear with protection from gods!

Timmy doesn't care about this card. He wants to put Snake Umbra on everything. Spike enjoys this card; it can't be a target of Faith's Fetters.

Johnny wants to stick this into his Bant deck with Knight of New Alara and clock you with a 4/4 flier for {WU}.

"We're putting you on guard duty."
"Well, I guess that's that."

Pretty solid card, 2/2 Flier for 2, Pro Enchantments. It's a bit restrictive, but a great offensive card in any W/U deck. Plus, it's a griffin wearing body armor! How cool is that?

"Guard Duty? Pacifism?
NAAAAH! I'm a griffin!"

A solid 2 mana creature for a W/U Control deck. Since control decks generally don't have any Buff aura's like Holy Strength, the protection from enchantments is normally only a plus.
