Grasp of Darkness suddenly looks a lot more attractive.

On October 2nd this card will go up in price, I see this as Wizard's pseudo replacement for Hero of Bladehold. Although it does not produce tokens this is a white four drop that has instant effect on the game. I will be hard after 4 foil spanish of these.

This is going to destroy Griselbrand. It also ruins my friends Recurring Nightmare deck. And his standard sacrifice human tokens deck. Wow. I need a few.

I think this should see a lot of play in standard humans or tokens decks. Those decks tend to be mostly white, so the mana cost is not a problem, and since they have a lot of creatures, Anthem effects are highly valued. So even without its last ability it would be a good card, but the ability is a very big one currently primarily because pod is popular, but also becuase of phyrexian mana and things like that. This is one of Avacyn Restored's best cards and its ridiculous that is is rated under 4.

Balanced and well costed. Angel tribal will smile on this.

Forgive this tirade (I'm a black mage)

I absolutely HATE this ***. Not only is she racist (like Sunlance), but she also tries to tell me what I can and can't do with my life!!! Now the Knight of New Alara he's a stand-up guy, this one could stand to be a little more tolerant as this is proof that the 2nd most evil color in the game is white.

I'll like it in Commander. Sure, the p/t sucks, but is at least somewhat evened out by it buffing your other creatures. And the casting cost is a bit annoying outside mono white. Still, it's a fine card, shutting down a good amount of combos. It's also fun with all cards that allow an opponent to sacrifice something. Like excavation, or argothian wurm, prowling pangolin and so on.

If you're wondering about how to fit this into Kaalia of the Vast, no worries:

Play with Linvala, Iona, Angelic Arbiter, and all the other 'New Rule: Screw You' Angels, all for 0 mana. Yeah it's a shame about Griselbrand but isn't playing this next to Gisela and Avacyn gonna be worth it? :D
