A spellshaper casting half of an Icatian Town at one-fourth the price.

You guys will be suprised how many kill spells are flung at Icatian Crier whenever I play her online. I play her in my lifegain deck with Soul Wardens, so it can be pretty threatening. Useful for both lifegain and chump blocks.

Perfect midgame creature. 4/5

@ dberry: I hear ya. Hook her up with a Guardians' Pledge too. She's the star of a pretty solid pauper deck I built, check it out:

....why did they make a red-headed card?

When I got one of these in a booster pack, I thought it was awesome. Then I actually played it. I found myself never using her ability since a Raise the Alarm was always worse than whatever cards I had in my hand if it wasn't going to make tokens of a useful tribal type. I'm sure it has its uses with madness or decks that really want a lot of creatures but for some reason aren't playing green, which has so many better options. But aside from that, this card doesn't really need to be in any decks.

Are the Citizen tokens she generates considered to be Humans? Because if so, she's got a date with Innistrad's Champion of the Parish...

Should've been Human tokens.

sleetfox: green does not have better token-swarm options than white, unless you go thallids, which is a different thing. white/red are the quick token generators.

4.5/5. its great late game, but you wont play her in competitive or powerful casual.

Townsfolk is a defunct creature type. Twelve Townsfolk were printed, but they've all since lost that type. Oddly, none of them became Citizens. (http://magiccards.info/query?s=issue&q=ct:townsfolk+-e:uh)
"Citizen" only ever appeared on Icatian Town, and probably should've been eradicated in favor of Human or Soldier. But then Time Spiral came along and revived it for nostalgia's sake (with Icatian Crier and Sarpadian Empires, Vol. VII).
The real facepalm moment is when you realize both creature types originated in Fallen Empires.
