Hey, it's Stromgarde
Crusader and Order of the Ebon Hand all in one!
For one more mana, that is. Is it worth
it? Well, it has protection from two
colors in an environment where any color could
be lurking in your opponent's deck. It can
gain first strike AND flying, and pump its power
as well. Granted that all takes a lot of
mana, but in a weenie deck, you probably ran out
of uses for your mana by turn six anyway.
Even if all you ever do is give it flying and
swing for 2, or block your opponent's Needle
Specter, this is totally worth it.
Friday - Stillmoon Cavalier
This thing is neat. They took some abilities
from favorite knights in the past and melded
them all into one card. This thing is great in
white weenie, because it's not that expensive,
it has protection from two colors in a very
multicolored format, it can fly, first strike,
and even has fire breathing (or, I suppose
whatever it would be on a white and black card).
If nothing else, this is an excellent mana sink
for the late game should the game go that long.
Right now, I don't see WW being viable in
Standard, but this *may* see play in the block
Kithkin deck; the only thing holding it back is
it's not a Kithkin.
In limited, yet another powerful card, like all
the cards this week. If you're in the colors,
you play this.
Constructed - 3.5
Casual - 4
Limited - 4
Someone told me there was a rumor about this
card before it was released, and I didn't
believe it. It seemed to have way too many
abilities for its cost, and I still think it
does. You can't argue with its effectiveness,
though, and it can single-handedly shut down
entire decks in constructed, casual, and limited
alike. Very few cards can avoid so much removal
and still put the opponent on such a short clock
- the Cavalier is Stromgald Crusader and Order
of the White Shield combined and so much more.
And it's also the headless horseman from the
Legend of Sleepy Hollow. How cool is that?
Constructed: Oh my! It's the headless
horseman! Anyways. It is something that Black
and White needed as a good creature with neat
abilities. He is pro his own colors which
protects him from Unmake and Shriekmaw. Red can
still take care of him easy. Make him fly for
damage to your opponent or first strike to kill
other critters that get in the way.
Casual: This card will fit into
any Zombie deck. Zombie decks are always
Limited: Very few cards can deal
with him in draft or sealed so he is a winner.
Even if he has no head.
Overall a good creature, that can hold its own. I
almost forgot he plays well with Haakon,
Have a great weekend.
