Firstly, few will argue against CoP effects being incredibly cheesy and capable of sucking both fun and strategy out of the game. Secondly, did you READ the card? I don't see "dodges most forms of removal" printed anywhere on Field Marshal. Mind, I'm not saying either are bad cards, I'm saying neither is the paladin.

Sadly, with multicolor so damned easy nowadays, he's just as vulnerable to efficient white removal, but give the guy credit where it's due. This vet had been fighting the good fight for nearly a decade at this printing and the old guy looks like he can still kick some ass.
