So underrated. It gives exalted decks such a boost early game and even later it might fetch you 2x exalted abilities for a fair cost.

I, for one, love it.

Exalted and a free 2- or 1- drop in an Exalted deck is nothing to scoff at. It thins out your library, too, and even late game, in Bant, those weenies add up.

I think this card is underrated because too many people use it in the wrong kind of deck. It's useless in a cascade deck, but in an exalted deck it seems like a much better pick. This can fairly consistently give you two extra exalted bonuses in a single turn, and using only one draw. There aren't too many, if any, other ways to accomplish both of those effects, and each can be extremely useful.

People who underestimate this card, here is why it's good.

Exalted decks thrived of sending in small creatures early before the opponent had board position, and if you got an exalted creature out turn 1 with Hierarch, you could hit this turn 2. That means that turn 3, the absolute lowest you're swinging for is 2, but likely 5, since you could hit a Qasali Pridemage with this.
Once the exalted deck dropped a Rhox War Monk, the lifegain coupled with the exalted put them too far ahead to be caught in a race. Lifelink also stacked at that point in time, so if they dropped a Battlegrace Angel, things got crazy quickly, not to mention Rafiq.

The deck wasn't quite as strong in standard due to the stupid power of jund, but it was very threatening in limited or in semi-competitive.

This card rocks! Simple yet elegant. Can bring a Meddling Mage at turn two with this one. Not to mention all those sick 1-2cc. Good job Wizards.

Played with a bunch of small white exalted creatures, this really sets up a huge turn 3 attacker. I like it.

I really like this card. Outside of an exalted deck, it's obviously useless, but cascading into a Qasali Pridemage, Aven Squire, or Sigiled Paladin is awesome. I just love cascade, period, and this card works for me just fine.
