Why splash with green when you can splash with black and the soul link
Everybody know serra avatar (4WWW from urza's saga) power and toughness = to life. Enter the Apocalypse's very own Soul link (1BW) whenever enchanted creature deals damage or is dealt damage, you gain that much life and with its shuffle ability you only lose the soul link but their common. so back to the life gain, you can attack and gain life ( IF UNBLOCKED) or, attack and if blocked you gain loads more life. but you might as well splash with green for the mana acceleration and the lure cards so you can force your opponent to block. live long and rule the board.
