Just kidding. But it feels that way. There are so many ridiculous cards being printed for WW that Kithkin just packed it in and said "Long Live the King". Before we get to l'Capitaine des Veilleurs, features on the right, let's discuss the fact that they just made a complete and total upgrade to Crusade:
Honor of the Pure
White creatures you control get +1/+1.
Together the soldiers were like a golden blade, cutting down their enemies and scarring the darkness.
Illus. Greg Staples
Apparently these are going to be given away as promos to people who buy boxes. That'll initially limit the price significantly, but if they end up being very important to White Weenie then the card could easily gain value. Regardless, pick up a playset or two when they're cheap and everyone's giving them away. White Weenie has some really insane cards including a STRICTLY BETTER Savannah Lions. That's right, its a 2/1 for , but he's a SOLDIER. Goes really well with the handful of really playable soldier tribal cards.
Let's see, we've got Crusade, Savannah Lions, a 2/3 for 2 that makes your guys bigger, a 3/2 for 3 that makes your guys bigger..Looks like White Weenie is going to show Kithkin how we do it.
Oh. Then there's this monster:
Captain of the Watch
|Creature - Human Soldier|
Other Soldier creatures you control gets +1/+1 and have vigilance.
When Captain of the Watch enters the battlefield, put 3 1/1 white Soldier creature tokens onto the battlefield.
|Illus. Greg Staples #6/249||3/3|
Sacre bleu! 9 power of vigilant tribal destruction! Despite being a mana more than Cloudgoat Ranger, and lacking the ability to fly when requested, this card is a brick house.
Lets examine situations in which this card will win you the game:
1) When you play it on turn 6, already having curved out with your Crusade (Honor of the Pure), a "Savannah Lions", an Armorsmith and a Swordsmith.
2) When you play it on turn 6, already having curved out with your Crusade (Honor of the Pure), a "Savannah Lions", and an Armorsmith.
3) When you play it on turn 6, already having curved out with your Crusade (Honor of the Pure), a "Savannah Lions".
4) When you play it on turn 6, already having curved out with your Crusade (Honor of the Pure).
5) When you play it on turn 6.
6) When you play it on turn 4 off a Windbrisk Heights.
7) When you play it in your deck.
Seems good, kids.
