Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit
The most dangerous card in the ancient red-green Warrior deck I mentioned on Wednesday was Bramblewood Paragon, which turned already very efficient creatures into insane threats. Anafenza reminds me a lot of that card, minus granting trample (which makes her automatically a lot less dangerous) but also minus tribal restructions (which makes her automatically more dangerous in certain ways). Anafenza starts working early enough to strengthen creatures against both slow and fast opponents, in almost any situation. I even feel that in larger formats, she's just about enough to prompt a re-examination of highly evasive low-toughness creatures such as Soltari Priest and Mistmeadow Skulk.

Today's card of the day is Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit which is a two mana White 2/2 Legendary that has you Bolster 1 whenever another non-token creature enters play under your control.  This is an excellent support card for primarily or mono-White army builds that aren't token based, particularly soldier or spirit as it shares typing.  Overall a 2/2 for two body with the potential to add much more power and toughness over time is well worth playing in most formats and this will see play in a variety of builds.
In Limited the double White is a bit of a drawback, but the reusable Bolster is well worth it even if it enters play after the second turn. 
A strong first pick in Booster and barring a very poor White pool should be easy to build around in Sealed as well.
