Much conversation on the board seemed to pop up about this guy. Personally I like the design and think the art is great and while I don't think he'll do much in the constructed environment this guy is a complete bomb in limited. For that reason alone I feel he deserves to be mythic, which seemed to be where some controversy settled around this card. He also feels very "Esper" to me.

This card is great in my artifact deck. Easy removal you say? How easy is it when I use Master Transmuter to put out Darksteel Forge on the fourth turn, then play this on the fifth? Throw in a Leonin Abunas, Metallurgeon,Lightning Greaves, Sanctum Gargoyle for if someone actually does manage to remove it...
Artifacts by themselves are easy to destroy, but with all the ways to protect them, pretty soon this guy is nuking your field, and there's nothing you can do about it :)

Oooh, I can see it now, play him for free with the Master Transmuter and then go bonkers with his abilities. I could really see myself playing this one a lot in the future.

Wait this guy is a knight? I thought he was a gargoyle, my bad.

Once you get him out he just owns the board. It is so unfair I love it. I never really use the untap ability. As for being mythic, probably not but I know my brother hates him so I like him even more. 4*

He gets owned by Knight of the Mists, haha.

4Blue for a 4/4 flying is already good as far as blue creatures go. 2Blue to give it pseudo-vigilance is admittedly a bit expensive, but if you play esper and can activate the first ability at least once, this card can be a real powerhouse.

This is quite the commentary; it reminds us that our own weapons are so devastating as to be a deterrent to war without ever being fired. If this is a good thing or a bad thing, you'll have to decide for yourselves.

I leave it entirely to you.

That was supposed to be Royal Assassin. Not surprising it decided to censor something that repeats the same three letters twice.
