Thats One Cool Looking Lion

It's an amazing creature, but doesn't see much play because of all the competition in the 2 cc slot. Qasali Pridemage and Deft Duelist are both more useful in the current removal-heavy environment, Jhessian Infiltrator is unblockable, etc etc.

this card is a staple for bant deck's, assuming u got akrasan squire 1st turn and another exalted creature turn 3, he can deal first strike damage as a 5/5 on turn 3...ABSOLUTELY BEAST

Best white two drop in standard, next to Kazandu Blademaster of course.

This was my first favorite card. I got it in my first ever booster (Oh yes, rookie alert) and I've loved it ever since. An excellent card in both casual mono-white and for more fine tuned Bant decks. I run 4 of them in the Bant deck I started to play tournaments with. Never got the deck right because it seemed a waste of money with only 1 month of play left in it, but I do love putting down these guys nonetheless.

I've never been disappointed to draw one no matter what phase the game was in even if there might have been better options in the deck. He's just too likeable xD

First Strike and Exalted make this guy possibly the most efficient 2 drop, when attacking. There are 3/3s for 2 around, but he'll beat them. On defense, not so impressive, but he can boost another creature while acting as a defender, so that's something. Knight of Meadowgrain gets you a bigger total life swing in your favor, and attacks better with others. The knights with Protection are better as sideboard cards, while these two can do awesomely as the 2 drop of many White Weenie decks (just play both!).

2/2 first strike for 2 is already good, the Exalted is delicious, delicious icing. Solid, deadly creature.

I think it's easier to accept him when you realize he's a 3/3 First Strike for 2.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
