+4/-1. For 2 mana.
Hold that thought.
Trample wasn’t on very many creatures and things with First Strike were something to be feared on the battlefield.
Barbed Battlegear is a win condition in itself.
Marisi’s Twinclaws with a Barbed Battlegear attacking! 6/3 Double Strike!
“Ok, I’ll just block with my Darksteel Myr.”
Colossal Might! Take 19, kid!
The fact that this is reusable is just incredible to me.
On that same note, look at this:
I wasn’t aware Accorder’s Shield was so broken as a common, they had to push it to uncommon a few months later and make it lose vigilance.
It’s a little silly both will be standard legal soon.
I will never understand Wizards of the Coast thought process for cards.
“What did those have to do with Barbed Battlegear?”
I don’t know! I’m old! Be quiet and go back to losing.
