@Owls: I think the flavor is that when ordered all the monks come out of the monastery to kick some ass, and then retreat back into the monastery.

Also, it's funny that Nantuko are insects that resemble the praying mantis.

And what do monks do? They pray =D

In the right deck, this card is a powerhouse.

If you're curious, the flavor is similar to Ghitu Encampment, except even a bit deeper.

These monks live in their monasteries, somewhere peaceful. In times of war they come out (and are quite skilled at combat; think of fantasy monk archtypes.) The "times of war" vs. "times of peace" thing comes from Threshold (7 things are in your graveyard, representing dead things, war spells, whatever..) and thus when he's called upon to defend his monastery, he will.

Also note that a church is somewhat revolving around it's priest, the last bit of flavor may just be that when he dies, so does his church.

..it's not an animated church..

I know what they're doing, but cards like this just don't make sense to me unless the actual land is alive, like stalking stones. That epic insect monk lives there, and when you kill a bunch of his friends, he comes out to kick some butt. If I'm mad at someone and go outside to beat them up, that's me, not my house. I'm not also my house.
... I'd rather that these cards produced legendary tokens. It just makes more sense. :)
