Great card...I use it with my elf/wolf deck...1/1 tokens were coming out at 4/4 and rising when I won

Great with a plentiful token maker like mycoloth and dragon broodmother

Mana cost is a little high. Not really worth it unless in a mana-sufficient, mono-tribal deck. But then you are limiting your options. The only thing I think it would work in is tribal weenies, so goblins, elves, and soldiers. Changelings gets a great boost from this. Big draw back is if your opponent(s) also play tribal decks. I have a foil version of this card, it can sell for so much. Decent card, hate the art.

I love this card. the art is awesome and the effect is even better. As soon as I opened this in a prerelease I instantly got offers for trades.

There are so many deck types that this card works in that I don't know where to begin. I use it in a White deck with lots of cards that have either Angel, Human, or Soldier in their type, then I play Honor of the Pure (+1/+1 to all White creatures) and a Veteran Swordsmith. It works especially well since most of that deck has Exalted, and I can attack with Akroma, Angel of Wrath to deal trample damage (and once I get Rafiq of the Many, Battlegrace Angel, and Finest Hour, she'll get double strike, lifelink, and then I can attack again afterwards with Reya Dawnbringer or one of my other tramplers).

If you have this card and you're not putting it in a tribal deck, or any deck that has many of the same creature types in it , then you need to take another GOOD HARD look at this card. It should be ubiquitous in any tribal or creature type themed deck. Just read it! Great card in the right deck.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
