As a pretty broad-based lord, I could see building it into some Main Decks.

Would this work with Norn's Annex?

I'm afraid not. I thought the same thing about this card, so I was looking for ways to break it. But if you reread what it says, it stats activated abilities and to cast spells. Meaning that the triggered effect from Norn's Annex goes untouched. Effects from other spells like Temporal Extortion are also untouched by this card.

This slow cards like Dismember and stops cards like Altar's Reap from being cast. And completely hoses Birthing Pod. I also think it stops Snuff Out, but I'm not 100% on that one just because how different the wording is on that in comparison to Alter's Reap.

I pulled 3 of these between a random booster and a fat pack.. Wasn't thrilled Lol.. That is until I built a deck which included her and realized just how big a part of the game sacrificing and life paying is now, whoa. Plus, her "lord" ability is SO versatile, where many require a specific color or creature type, she only requires it not be black, granted the 3 plains symbols in her casting cost is the catch but even with that she still has proven versatile (hello? White/Artifact is making some noise these days people!! ;) and to realistically be able to have all of the above on a 3/3 body w/evasion by T4 maybe even T3 is just.. Fantastic. At best She shuts down deck types and plays solid offense and defense at the same time and with 2 out, she goes NUTS!! At worst, she's anti-toxin against removal with a small but efficient pump to your guys that's at LEAST worthy side board material. My advice, keep an eye on this one here, she's SO much better than many might think, myself originall... (see all)

to everyone wanting to know if this works with Norn's Annex or similar cards/abilities, the answer is no. those do not grant activated abilities to creatures, so they are have no interaction with this card.

also, @Yozuk, you can still cast a card like Snuff Out, but you must pay the mana cost and are unable to pay the alternate cost.

That last ability really locks down a ton of decks. Pretty much any black deck or any deck that splashes the Phyrexian symbol cards is going to make this thing number one on their kill list.

Also yes, the artwork is gorgeous and should hang on my wall.

I love this guy and really want to see her hit home post rotation.
C'mon, she's basically a sixth liege.

Why you hate on Birthing pod!

This card is pretty amaizing, I mean, 3/3 flyer for 4, with the 1+1 boost to your creatures, makes it pretty suitable for Human/Soldier decks, which controll quite an army of weak creatures, which is very nice for this card to boost up.

The 2nd passive effect also is a pretty straightforvard couneter to many kinda of black decks. Phyrexian stuff comes to mind ;)

I love this card and I agree with nunzioni saying :'This is one of Avacyn Restored's best cards and its ridiculous that is is rated under 4.'

Good against the previous block, just like Tunnel Ignus and Ash Zealot.
