i have gone with a hand with one land, her, and 5 other random white cards just to get the 15 to 18 extra life on turn two

Imagine this thing with Sanguine Bond. Or Felidar Sovereign.

man this card is insane,
turn 1 play plains and myter of sands
turn two play plains activate myter of sands revealing 6 white clards including rune-tail kitsune ascendant
turn three draw and play plains and play rune tail kitsune ascendant

I've managed to defend against a Pestilence deck with just Martyr of Sands and Sigil of the New Dawn. They were literally the only two non-land permanents I had out yet there was nothing my opponent could do, poor guy.

By far, the absolute most evil use I've seen for this card was fabricated by my younger brother. He ran FOUR of them in an Orzhov deck that was built almost exclusively with multicolor and hybrid cards; multiple copies of sh!t like Edge of the Divinity, Divinity of Pride, Stillmoon Cavalier, Souls of the Faultless, Unmake, Voracious Hatchling, Mortify, Deathbringer Liege, Ghost Council of Orzhova for a sac engine, Debtors' Knell to get the sacrifices back, Angelic Chorus to be mean, Sanguine Bond to be even more mean, and Roiling Horror to be downright evil. (And a few Elixir of Immortality and Wrath of God for the Hell of it)

So with all of these extremely powerful wh... (see all)

A good turn 2 life boost. It's also good if you don't have much land --- Boost your life and withstand some attacks. Play with Cradle of Vitality to boost the power of another creature quickly. Lots of ways to play with this card
