This card changes Nissa Revane's -7 from a bad situation to an elvish apocalypse.

I use door it can make a difference, but I don't wait to play this before playing my spells if I get it I play it when I can, or you can lose the game with nothing but a door on the file

Will be reprinted in M14. Yet more evidence that Theros will have a tribal theme or sub-theme...

Jokergius, you forgot one BIG con for Door of Destinies: it's slower. DoD has has to come out first, before you play all your spells. It needs to sit on the field (where it won't be until turn 4) while it accumulates counters. By contrast, Coat of Arms hits the field on turn 5 and instantly all those elves you've been dropping become 5/5's, and you can swing in for the win.

You can, of course, use Coretapper or Energy Chamber, but then you're devoting deckspace to cards that will most likely only combo with one card in your deck: the Door of Destinies. You'd probably find yourself drawing a few dead cards with that strategy.

What i think a lot of people here aren't noticing is that you have to cast the creature in order for it to count. That automatically rules out tokens, although they will get the buff if you add counters to it some other way. Other ways of getting creatures from your hand or deck that aren't cast do not count as well. It is still a great card, but it is harder to abuse than you guys think.

I use 2 of these in my elf token deck just to add a bit of power to them, alongside elvish archdruid, Ezuri, Renegade Leader and bramblewood paragon I've swung for over 1000 damage with a horde of 38/38 trampling 1/1 elf warrior tokens (Elvish promenade + 2 lys alane huntmasters + rhys the redeemed = quick token spawning)

I'm curious. With DoD in play and Ambush Commander in play, would you forest drops produce a counter too since thy are Elfs as well as lands?

I actually use this in my ninja deck as I rarely have more than one creature out at a time so CoA does nothing, while every time I use Ninjutsu to bounce my ninjas and place another one down, that adds a counter to Door.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
