Nice ability, though you're unlikely to see it go past level 1. Combos nicely with Pyrohemia or Pestilence.

@albinobrow03 : How exactly did Twin interact with it ? It doesn't copy the counters and the creature only lasts for a turn.

I try to like this card, in whole its not a bad card in the set, but when you look at standard it takes second place to Guardian Seraph. Tough in a combo this plus Training grounds would be killer, but that is the same for most of the levelers.

I guess they didn't use the Absorb keyword since it also affects you, and Absorb only refers to creatures. They also could have changed the Absorb ruling, but then again Pacifism for instance doesn't say "Enchanted creature has Defender and can't block." either.

Since these guys get their final ability at level 5 at first with a leveling cost of three mana each, this card surely is intended to show its true potential in a leveler deck with Training Grounds and the like.
Eighteen mana isn't worth it for sure if your opponent can still get rid of your toy easily by using removal that is not burn.

If you're white, black and blue, this one, venerated teacher and pestilence is a nasty combo.
But still, if you play against a black deck, he's got tons of removal for this thing.

Also gets some more mileage out of damage lands like Battlefield Forge, Murmuring Bosk or Adarkar Wastes.

I'm definitely building a deck with four of these.

It was never a real keyword to begian with.

And how is this not 4/5 stars or better? It's a big butt that saves your other creatures.

Keep in mind, at level 5, this thing needs to take 7 damage from something to die.

Multiples of this being active is pretty much "kill me now...or just forefit."

lol I have two of these in my level-up deck. Hilarious having both out and fully leveled against the opponent's weenie deck.

My brother and one of my buddies saw something in this card, and tried to make it work, but, in all honesty it just didn't work. I think the best idea I heard on here was the idea with the Splinter Twin, and that's even hard because you have to level it up all the way first. Overall, eh, this chick just doesn't quite get there. Fun for casual though
