@telecaster: i'm a bit confused about this card. does this mean that its abilities also are in effect in my opponents upkeep?

Say on your turn you have a White Knight and Concerted effort in play. You play a Serra Angel and pass the turn. You have a First strike creature, and a flying vigilance creature in play.

After your opponent's upkeep, Both your creatures have First Strike, Protection from black, Flying, and Vigilance. Your opponent throws a pair of lightning bolts at the Serra. The knight is still first strike, pro black, vigilant, and flying until end of turn.

The next upkeep (whether yours or a third player's in the game), your knight doesn't get flying and vigilance again, since the angel's dead.

The list of shared abilities only get updated during everyone's upkeep. creatures you play in your turn don't get them (since they weren't on the field during upkeep when Concerted Effort's ability triggered). Removing a creature mid-turn doesn't update what's shared either. It... (see all)

I like that this card, a white card, can grant Fear.

Okay, I understand how this card works, but not really why. Why does it trigger each upkeep instead of being a state based effect? Any gurus out there who can pass on some enlightenment?

I wish they had worded this card a bit differently, so that the effect goes into effect immediately, instead of at the beginning of the next upkeep. The difference between being able to swing on turn 4 or turn 5 with your double striking flying vigilance creatures is a big one. Also, since the ability triggers each upkeep, your opponent can still activate an ability or cast an instant that will get around the protection everyone uses.

Pristine Angel, also if you want unblockable creatures, the cheapest way I can think of is Beloved Chaplain, both of which are in mono {W}. Other cards of worthy mention are Trailblazer's Boots since lots of decks run nonbasic lands anyways.

At the beginning of each upkeep, all creatures you control turn into Slivers.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
