Attended Knight
Creature – Human Knight (C)

First strike
When Attended Knight enters the battlefield, put a 1/1 white Soldier creature token onto the battlefield.

2/2
Seems good!
Solid!  Gonna be fun to draft at the very least.
not blade splicer but not bad either

I'm predicting... Timely Reinforcements coming soon.
seems quite good. 2/2 first strike is good enough for 3 mana, coming with a reinforcement is a bonus.
Another piece of solid scaling on multiplying creature bodies. Nifty.

The first strike alone would have made this fringe playable, two bodies is gravy.
Shouldn't the guy who attends a knight be a 1/2?

Very, very nice. I loved nest invader, and I love this. I wouldn't have batted an eye if I saw this at uncommon, either. In fact, I had to double check to make sure it wasn't.
Good limited card.

This will look a lot better when Blade Splicer rotates.
Heck, it looks decent right now.

Cheap version of Blade Splicer.

That's pretty awesome actually, nice one R&D.

WHoa,. I'm used to white getting undercosted stuff but. Limited critical pick.
Love that art

I think the attendant is cuter than the knight.

From Mark Rosewater's Tumblr: the0uroboros asked: How in the same set can we have a hexproof, unsacrificable(not a word) creature AND a land that makes it uncounterable. How does this lead to interactive play? I believe I’m able to play my creature and you have to deal with it is much more interactive than you counter my creature.

MaRo: One of the classic R&D stories happened during a Scars of Mirrodin draft. Erik Lauer was sitting to my right (meaning that he passed to me in the first and third packs). At the end of the draft, Erik was upset because I was in his colors (black-green). He said, "Didn't you see the signals? I went into black-green in pack one." I replied, "Didn't you see my signals? I started drafting infect six drafts ago."

***************************************************************************************

MaRo: I redesigned him while the effect was on the stack.

In some ways this is better because you don't lose the first strike if you lose the 1/1.
This also nets you an extra 1/1 instead of an extra 3/3 with First Strike when you Cloudshift it. Definitely a far worse card, but hey, it's a common. Not awful at all.

I think the power level of this is actually comparable to Blade Splicer since Knight, Soldier, and Human are all far more relevant creature types.

Also, the token is white.

I agree, although I wish the token it makes was a human as well. Simply for the sake of Champion of the Parish.

Agreed.
I asked Brady about this and he said that they don't like putting more than one creature type on tokens outside of tribal blocks because they like the possibility of reprinting cards in blocks with different settings.

For example, theoretically reprinting Elspeth Tirel in a world where the dominant white race are Kor or Kithkin or sentient cucumbers or whatever.

having a golem is better against sword of war and peace and intimidate...though

Splicer and Sword of Tolstoy rotate at the same time though, so that's a non-issue come October.
