This card is a beast in multiplayer, coupled with Soul Warden, and/or Soul Warden/Suture Priest and Shrine of Loyal Legions. This is making my lifegain deck (:

@scumbling: He's not necessarily wrong. In the soul sisters deck it would be do-able since each sister's trigger is a different lifegain event.

This thing is insane in chaos multiplayer. Here was the scenario today:

I had 2 of these guys on the field, 3 Soul's Attendants, and 2 Soul Wardens. My friend somehow managed to play 3 Seed the Lands (his Sensei's Divining Top probably helped). Thus, every time anyone played a land, I gained 15 life and each of these guys got 15 +1/+1 counters. I got the pridemates to about 181/181 each when I dropped True Conviction. Talk about overkill.

Why on EARTH did they print Silvercoat Lion in the same set?
Apart from the strictly worse aspect, the Lion is a bear you can use in draft while the Pridemate is a terrifying and destructive force of death.

Have multiple Ajani's Mantras on the field. Each trigger separately resulting in multiple +1/+1 counters. Also, Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant boost this when it hits the battlefield. Ajani himself boosts him too. What an awesome card in a lifegain deck.

Is it just me or could this actually be goyf 2.0? Consider for a moment this scenario.

t1 Leyline of vitality, and soul's attendant or serra ascendant.
t2 Play ajani's pridemate, the leyline activates, it gets +1/1, the soul's attendant ability activates seperately, it gets another +1/1.

So, I just got a 4/4 for 2 mana on turn 2? Obvious combos include survival cache, ajani's mantra, glazing gladheart, felidar sovereign, baneslayer angel, serra ascendant, sejiri merfolk, ondu cleric, talus paladin, soul's attendant, soul warden, rest for the weary, vampire nighthawk, consuming vapors, corrupt, blood tithe, vampire's bite, basilisk collar, living wish, leyline of vitality (especially with awakening zone), obstinate baloth, and pelakka wurm.

Yeah, life gain is viable, there's a shocker.

A good card, a very good card if u have the planeswalker Ajani Goldmane because u can activate his first ability which is "u gain 2 life" and this card will get stronger and stronger and better yet ajani goldmanes first ability doesnt cost a loyalty counter so ajani wont die from using that ability alot

Doens't get +1/1 counters for every POINT of life gained, when when an effect makes you gain life. Rest for the weary is one effect: one +1/1 counter.

Don't go to prerelease tonight thinking otherwise :)
