I've stating a long time now that the glorious anthem was too weak and too unspecific to be truly good. Back then, I've said that a card like Day of Destiny is a MUCH better card, as well as Muraganda Petroglyphs. But both cards had the problem that they weren't in the "pants down" slot (= casting cost 3).
Tempered Steel fulfills all my dreams and is worth a deck-designing card. It doesn't break the game, nor does it make you win the game, but it's a static effect that puts some pressure onto the battlefield.

I hope that R&D gets the message and prints more enchantments like this.

I always wanted to make an Artifact creature winnie deck... now it's possible

Perfect for Myr deck. Memnite, people?
Of course it's not a myr, it only state for ARTEFACTS, so Memnite get it as well.
And we will be seeing Boros decks coming back.

i think was more fun if only brings +1+2 (because its a steel, more resistant) and balance more the game..

This card is a perfect example of how elegant the color pie is. "Artifact creatures you control get/gain..." fits in blue, and "creatures you control get +2/+2" fits in green, but if this design had cost 1GreenBlue (or worse, 1Green or BlueGreen or Blue) it would've been aesthetically unpleasant. Halfway between blue and green, in white, this design fits like a glove.

Works great with Precursor Golem (Brings 15 power to the table), Myrsmith (creates 3/3 creatuers for 1 mana) and Myr Battlesphere (Brings 18 power to the table)

A great card for the standard Myr Deck, as it turns all of your little 1/1s and 2/2s into sizeable threats. Now only if there was a way of generating gratuitous amounts of card advantage to keep you from running out of steam.

This card is at least 4.5/5. If it looks good at first glance, it passes the play test with an A+ mark. People, this baby can easily mean, in the right deck, 4 or 5 Ornithopters, 2/4 evasive flyers, by turn 3. Add some Glint Hawk Idol fun (4/4 flyer that, 90% of the time, can't be the target of sorceries), and you have yourself an the base for an original, yet competitive standard deck. I say original because your deck wont have Goblin Guides and Geopedes, like everyone else's.
