Gift of Orzhova                      
Enchant Creature

Enchanted Creature gets +1/+1 and has flying and lifelink.

Well, I think this might be my favorite piece of art in the set, and I didn't see a thread for it, so I thought I would toss it up here. Looks like it's going to be great in limited, and probably not half bad in constructed. It reminds me of Armadillo Cloak, in that this is probably how good an aura has to be to see play without having some sort of built in recursion, ala Rancor.
Great art, agreed, but the card itself... Decent in Limited I guess...

Well, Spectral Flight has been played in Grand-Prix winning decks recently, so this might be too.

I like the cost
I just really want to play this on Alms Beast in limited.
That art is freaking amazing.
Art...

that is all.
That artwork is amazing.
Not too shabby. Art is fantastic, and I also liked the flavor text.

Lady and gentlemen.... I present to you the Edition War without Contrition, the War of the Web, the Mighty Match-up! We're using standard edition war rules. No posts of substance. Do not read the other person's posts with comprehension. Make frequent comparison to video games, MMOs, and CCGs. Use the words "fallacy" and "straw man", incorrectly and often. Passive aggressiveness gets you extra points and asking misleading and inflammatory questions is mandatory. If you're getting tired, just declare victory and leave the thread. Wait for the buzzer... and.... One, two, three, four, I declare Edition War Five, six, seven eight, I use the web to Go!

D&D should not return to the days of blindfolding the DM and players. No tips on encounter power? No mention of expected party roles? No true meaning of level due to different level charts or tiered classes? Please, let's not sacrifice clear, helpful rules guidelines in favour of catering to the delicate sensibilities of the few who have problems with the ascetics of anything other than what they are familiar with.

Just a quick note on the MMORPG as an insult comparison... MMORPGs, raking in money by the dumptruck full. Many options, tons of fans across many audiences, massive resources allocated to development. TTRPGs, dying product. Squeaking out an existence that relys on low cost. Fans fit primarily into a few small demographics. R&D budgets small, often rushed to market and patched after deployment. You're not really making much of an argument when you compare something to a MMORPG and assume people think that means bad. Lets face it, they make the money, have the audience and the budget. We here on this board are fans of TTRPGs but lets not try to pretend none of us play MMORPGs.

Something like Tactical Shift is more magical than martial healing.
Telling someone to move over a few feet is magical now? :| I weep for this generation.
Given the laziness and morbid obsesity amongst D&Ders, being able to convince someone to get on their feet, do some heavy exercise, and use their words to make them be healthier must seem magical.

Meh, the only thing I put auras on right now is Invisible Stalker, making the flying irrelevant, and there are better lifelink cards out there.

Good card with great art.
This should be pretty good in limited.

QFT!

Too bad I went Simic
4 Gift of Orzhova
4 Lone Revenant
28 cards to shut your opponent's win condition down.
4 Hallowed Fountain
10 Islands
10 Plains

Anti-Lingering Souls/graveyard sideboard.

Step 3: Profit.

It's like I've stepped back into the days of Draw-Go-Serra.
Stained glass is always a fun visual motif.
Heya everyone, here are my homebrew threads: (yes there is only one right now, but there are more to come!) And Let There Be Fish-Men: KUO-TOA
This is very good to find in a Dimir pool.

I wouldn't say irrelevant — Invisible Stalker normally can't block creatures with flying. This lets him block small fliers and drain them for two life without dying.
<3<3<3 Stained glass wings.

Wish this was 1 mana cheaper, but will still run in limited.
I don't understand what's going on with her lower body like at all

And you shouldnt, because of perspective.

The perspective is CRAP and the wings are stuck on CRAP.
This should prolly just be (w/b)(w/b).

It is, to be fair, a hybrid.

Yes, it requires not one, but TWO colored mana.
if I cast that on my opponents creature,
do I gain life when it does damage ?

No. You'd need the wording of Spirit Link/Vampiric Link for this.
For lifelink only the controller of the damage source matters, the owner/controller of the enchantment is irrelevant.
little underwhelming yet can be good in limited.
very good in limited, turned some tides.
