The worst battlemage.

Trample is better than flying if you are facing flying/reach creatures. In this situation giving your guy flying won't really help, because he can be chump blocked regardless. Trample is harder to chump block because the only way to fend off a trample attack is to have a stronger guy. Giving your dude flying also makes him vulnerable to removal that specifically targets flying creatures, whereas as far as I am aware of there is nothing that specifically targets trample creatures.

On the other hand, if you are facing flying dudes then you can have this guy give your blockers flying, I think.

I'd personally rather take a 1/1 with shroud, increase its abilties to {1G} and {1U} and make it not have to tap. Altogether a good alara draft card, but just a little too weak for any constructed deck

Very impressive art. Not a bad card either. Provides whatever kind of evasion you need.

if you give it the umbral mantle from shadowmoor and give the creature flying and trample then it makes your creature much better getting past most of there creatures then trampling the ones with flying

Strictly more Trampley than Elspeth, Knight-Errant

I use this to grouphug :p either I raise my regenerating blockers up to the sky to block their sigarda's or prrosh EDH commanders or I give them trample if they attack my opponent (i can't to sigarda but you get the idea).
