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

The card is playable, good even. In ways, it can be better than Figure; swinging for 3 turn 2 is definitely nice. Good news: WW now has two playable 1-drops. Huzzah? So...yeah, anyways, before we start writing the Doomsday Predictions, let's remember that unlike Figure, this guy is still hugely vulnerable at level 2, and sorcery level-up makes it a potential manasink. Now, this doesn't mean he's bad or anything, but it does mean that there's a severe downside on focusing on him; losing your turn 1 and 2 plays to R isn't where WW wants to be.

Leveling him up over time works and of course, making 'er big where opponent doesn't have removal is nice; he's sorta like Figure, except a bit worse. Still, he's obviously constructed playable and given WW is already quite good, it might make the deck high-tiered. Though given WW mostly succeeds on Protections, I'm not sure this is the card WW wants.

honestly, figure and this new white weenie are both pretty freking monstrous.
even freaking comparing kinigit of the white orchid to this leveler is stupid. and steppe lynx? sure hes good till you hit him with a freaking pebble. the new ww leveler will be 10$ easy. mark my words.

Edit: for language cuz its late i was harsh lol.

Just like the 3WW planeswalker, this is another pidgeon hole card designed for white weenie.

I am annoyed by this.

Levelers don't start at level 0, lol. What would their stats be? 0/0?


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!



Hope youre trolling...

Its obviously a 4/4 haste for 1G+2G or a normal 4/4 for 3GG aswell as a 2/3 Haste Flyer for 1W+3 or a normal 2/3 Flyer for 4W

They start at level 0 and become their level 1 from when you level up once obviously

@pascal: Check the guy he's replying to... He's just pointing out why them starting at level 1 is obviously NOT the case.

Keep Tarmo outta this. These boys have nothing on him; still by FAR the best guy ever.

I like this guy better than FoD but it is close. WW was also much better back during FoDs day.

Basilisk Collar is Tutor-able with Mystic in a white weenie deck.
This guy who gets first strike is Tutor-able with Ranger in the same deck.

Sounds good to me.

Toss in gideon and a couple more first strikers if white has any. Maybe a splash of green for KotR, KotWO, borderpost and manland fun.
