Last night an image of another card from Oath of the Gatewatch showed up on the internet. Part of the name is blurred out, but all of the rules text is in tact.
On a card like this, I'd really rather that the static ability was lifelink over deathtouch, but you can't win them all. It's entirely possible that we'll see this card start showing up in Aristocrats style decks side by side with any of the lifegaining options in Standard. Seeker of the Way, Siege Rhino, and even Zulaport Cutthroat can help make the psuedo-Vindicate ability on this card active. At the end of the day, a 2/3 that always trades-up isn't that bad, either.
