Anyone seen Student of Warfare?

W - 1/1 Level up, W

Level 2-6, 3/3 First strike

Level 7, 4/4 double-strike

W.
T.
F.

Two you are swinging for three first striking, and dropping another one.

R/W is going to be insane.

I know! WTF!

*Watches it get bolted by anything that does 1 damage in response to 2nd trigger*

What were they thinking? All burn is a turn 2 time walk against this guy! Who knew a white card would make lightning bolt even better.

Its a very strong card, but with Lightning Bolt and Putrid Leech in the format, and all the new walls that are coming, it will struggle to find a room in a deck. Doesn't mean she isn't constructed playable, though. I can easily see her in a White Weenie deck.

I'm much more excited about Kargan Dragonlord. Can't wait to build a deck in Standard and Extended featuring it!

Guess the leveler cards aren't ALL bad after all. Mr. Green

of COURSE it sucks! Just Lightning Bolt it. Punishing Fire, even. Or even Burst Lightning! KILL THAT SUCKER BEFORE IT OWNS YOUR ASS! And ignore all the other white weenies that the white weenie decks can churn out, JUST KILL THE FRIGGIN' SUPER CREEP!

Although, you can build a deck with 20 lightning bolts and 20 hellspark elementals, 8 red-fetches and 12 mountains. No way can that stupid weak card can beat you!

(er... please insert sarcasm in case some people are too mentally weak to comprehend).

It's weak like Figure of Destiny is OWNED. Just make sure your deck has 40 or so removal spells, and you're good to go.

You don't. Starting level is 0.
Still, very scary card.

It's not going to turn White Weenie into a contender in this format. It's a very good card as much as Steppe Lynx is a good card. It's a 3 mana 3/3 that dies to everything that kills the Lynxes and Geopedes that were hated out of the format.

I'm sure around rotation time, he'll get another look.

Yes, levers start at level 0. Duh, go read the rules.

Anyway he sucks. I would never replace steppe lynx with this fellow, I pay ONE mana for the lynx and he gets pumped in another fashion, this man I need to pump mana into and throw off my tempo. Plus White weenie just has better two drops. Firewalker, White Knight, Kazandu Blademaster and Knight of the White Orchid All have two relevant abilities, as opposed to this guys one.

This green uncommon is pretty sweet then. A 2 mana 4/4 with no drawbacks at uncommon..



And white has a great card at COMMON! A 2/3 flyer for two!

Leveling up for a single mana every time makes for very efficent use of mana.
