Great ability, awesome art, and one of my favorite creature types. I always run two or three of these guys in my casual knight deck.

Theres a reason he was in time spiral with a little card called Cloudchaser Kestrel both were in the flanking themed intro deck too, hilarious for me in my newb days.

Lands are colorless.

neat idea, but I feel like his abilities don't necessarily stack very well. Granted he has variety, but it would be very rare for BOTH abilities to be utilized in a match ( personally I find the second ability more useful than flanking, but I haven't gotten the pleasure to use flanking)

4/5 Neat rare and interesting concept. Certainly useful, and has a variety factor, but there is something lacking.

His "destroy" ability synergizes with flanking because Flanking is effective in allowing him to trade with up to 3 2/2s; and you'd want to destroy 4/4s or bigger anyway; so you whenever you need to kill fatties he's good and whenever you have to attack through a horde of garbage he's good.

He's a good test of Casual power against Legacy builds if you make it to him IMO; as he provides a weird puzzle to solve; requiring non-damage board wipes or evasion while protecting your own evasive beater. This can be quite the puzzle for some fair decks.

I always did have trouble managing to fit him into Momentary Blink decks (trying to do a Bant formation on account of Mystic Snake, before they were even called Bant, probably didn't help). The idea, obviously, is that as long as you do the flickering on the turn before you plan to use the ability, you can change the color the Paladin assails. More cumbersome than Painter's Servant, yes, but in places that won't let the Servant in, such as Commander...

If you look really close at the picture for Strangling Soot it's this guy that's getting killed

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
