Good card but white has some premium three drops to compete with (PVDR, reidane, skyclave, maul) so I don’t know who wants this. Maybe the BW deck with sac effects


Jerms91

Yeah there no lack of power for white at 3 mana right now


lolyana

It depends what you want to do, that's exactly the kind of agressive 3 drops i wanted for a Selesnya human going wide tribal personally. You can get value from it the turn you drop it, this card synergise perfectly with Join the dance, Sigarda, and Fearless Adversary. The shell need a really good human one drop and it could become something interesting.


PLOTUS1

Well fair enough but I would still venture that all the reasons monowhite wants the cards I mentioned apply to you (ie mitigating wrath’s)


lolyana

Of course but you can delay the wrath with Curse of Silence which only cost one mana. And then you can bring few copies of Guardian of faith to protect your whole board from a 5/7 cmc board wipe. (all of this is in a bo3 perspective to be clear).


ulfserkr

sounds like a decent plan tbh


GruntMaster6k

THIS creature has 4 toughness though. I'm at least jamming this in historic, having it not die to Anger of the Gods/Lightning Helix should be huge. Also, it should trigger the turn it enters if you're attacking with other creatures, correct?


PLOTUS1

Yeah looks like it. I only play S22 so not sure about historic use


TheBigDickedBandit

It will give you a 1/1 human the turn it enters, yea. It’s probably still not good, but I’m excited to try this in a hero humans list


lolyana

It impacts the battlefield directly the turn you drop it as you can attack with your turn 2 and 1 to create a token. In the worst case scenario where you have an empty board, on his own this card attacks like a 2/4 with a 1/1 token, so it's 3 damages, it's on rate, so this is great. It's like Luminarch Aspirant, they provide value each turn and can take over the game. Having 4 toughness is extremely relevant to dodge the most cheap burn spells.


Jerms91

Also makes rally the ranks a bit more viable


lolyana

Yes, although with the amount of anthem effect attached to a creature options we have, i wonder if rally the rank will ever see play. Sigarda, Fearless Adversary could be enough already or not, i don't know.


Jerms91

Could be a mixture of some of the options with rally obviously being the weakest card of the bunch


lolyana

i think you're highly right, Adeline, Join the dance and Katilda probably makes a 2 mana tribal enchantmant +1/+1 worth it. I'm brewing a Selesnya human tribal, i hesitate between Paladin class and Rally the rank but i think Rally the rank permit more explosive start which is where the deck wants to go because overextending and not being able to close the game fast enough was the biggest weakness of Selesnya token during his prime, There is better and way more options to protect the whole board from wrath in this standard but still. Paladin class is a superb mana sink although and synergise well with Kaltida.


Jerms91

Let me know how your testing goes!!!


strawberryfields318

Mono White Aggro just got a nice sideboard piece


ulfserkr

what matchups do you think need this?


kirbydude65

Control match ups most likely. It reminds me of a lesser [[Hero of Bladehold]] that you aimed to resolve after the wrath, while their tapped out.

Karolmo

3 mana and needs you to have a board to actually swing for big? Nah, this is a really bad Brimaz. I don't see any reason to run this over PVDR, Reidane and Skyclave.


americancontrol

Brimaz was the first thing I thought of as well, but it doesn't strike me as being worse. It's significantly better on offense since it can make a token the turn it enters play, and scales up it's own damage way faster than Brimaz did. Brimaz was always a house if they couldn't remove it and this seems to do the same, difference being you can get value out of this the turn it enters play if they don't have instant speed interaction whereas brimaz required you to untap with him. It's obviously a worse blocker, but that's not something I'm too concerned with in WW.


Davihelio

The bare minimun she will swing for is 3 (the token plus 2 power cuz 2 creatures). And thats the bare minimun. I'd say she is quite alright


Karolmo

Not better than any of the options i named. 3-drop slot in white is too full. 2/4 and 1/1 is also much easier to block than 3/4


lolyana

Considering that you probably play this card in the same deck than Join the dance, the chances to have only Adeline on the battefield are really low, and a 3 drops that have for floor a 2/4 and a 1/1 is quite alright. Nobody is saying it's better than the existing 3 drops because it's not, they just won't be played in the same deck and they don't fit the same role.


americancontrol

The only time this would ever attack as a 2/4 is post-wrath after like turn 6+ when it's your last card and you top-deck land the next turn and somehow haven't drawn a manland yet. Even if they kill your t1, t2 plays, you play this, if you get to untap with it you simply play your creatures pre-combat. It's going to be as big or bigger than brimaz on almost every single attack.


lolyana

And again Join the dance is a turn 2 play and a turn 5 play, so you will most likely be able to cast something and bring bodies on the battlefield the turn Adeline is able to attack.


FullmetalGameMaster

I'm curious but could this fit into modern humans or not really?


NumberHunter1

My guees is not really. Doesn't have great synergy with Vial and doesn't immediately do anything as opposed to a [[Reflector Mage]] or a [[General Kudro]].

Velis81

No, it’s not better than any of the current humans. It really would need to do something when it enters to be a contender or offer some protection to other humans.


GruntMaster6k

I'm loving this for historic humans and/or my boros tokens list since it has the 4th point of toughness. Jeskai players are often very prepared for Spellbinder - they lapse it, untap, wrath your board, and then spellbinder gets eaten by a helix/shark/prismari down the line. Being able to dodge each of those and help rebuild your board is big. A bit worse against wrath of god, but I'm encountering helix/anger now more often anyways.


CyclonicSpy

Seems like an edh card with some fringe constricted play.

Rolopaolo17

This is definitely more of a humans card than a generic WW card - I could also see this being good in a midrange strategy; rabblemaster effects have traditionally been good in those strategies. -!: while this is obviously not on the same power level as a rabblemaster, it’s definitely worth considering
