This is one serious card for limited play. There
have been a lot of creatures created in the past
that can deal damage to one attacking creature,
or one blocking creature. Brigid deals TWO big
points of damage to ALL attacking or blocking
creatures. Brigid may only have a 2/3 body, but
she can hold off your opponent’s whole team from
attacking. What’s more, she can block and kill a
4/4 attacker all by herself! Brigid could find a
place in block constructed decks, but her real
day in the sun will be in the limited arena.
Two damage to EACH attacking or blocking
creature target player controls? That's
powerful. So powerful that no opponent will ever
walk into it, making Kithkin fans the world over
wish she had Vigilance instead of First Strike.
If you can give her vigilance, so much the
Even witout it though, this pretty much renders
combat unwinnable for many limited decks, and
quite a few constructed ones. Expect her to draw
a lot of fire or own a lot of tables.
Friday - Brigid, Hero of Kinsbaile
An absolutely devastating card...in limited. In
constructed, maybe as a sideboard card against
opposing weenie rushes, but other than that I
don't see much of a use. She does help out
against Tarmogoyf, though.
4 mana is an awful lot though, and she doesn't
even have Vigilance to go with that ability.
In limited, this is an absolute bomb. Your
opponent can't attack or block with her out,
unless they want to have their board demolished.
Do NOT pass it unless you have no white

Brigid, Hero of
Brigid is quite a cool card, and does a good job
of showing off how much Kithkin love the combat
step. The ability, though, is probably too
situational and Brigid herself too easily
stopped to see much play in constructed. I'd be
open to someone suggesting how to do so, though!
She is an out-and-out limited bomb, making there
almost no safe way for your opponent to attack

Brigid, Hero of Kinsbaile:
Not sure what to think of this card. Certainly a
champ in limited, and possibly in casual/multi.
You could probably sideboard it in constructed
for use against weeny decks.

Brigid, Hero of
In constructed, just no... I'm pretty sure
someone else will say this is bad here so I'll
skip it. But if it doesn't, just remember 4 mana
for 2/3 with a bad ability is no good.
In casual, same thing.
It's pretty good in limited though, making
combat very difficult for your opponent. It also
has a decent size body, taking out any non-first
strike x/4 before it even receives combat.

Although Kithkin themselves are all about the
weenie rush, Brigid can effectively take down a
whole horde of attacking creatures coming at
you. She can also help if your opponent decides
to chump-block your army with a ton of tokens.
Lorwyn has made generating 1/1 tokens fairly
easy, and I'm sure we've all faced the horde of
tokens coming at us at one time playing casual.
Fear the hordes no more, that is if you can find
space for her in your deck.
