Random Card of the Day #6

Random Card of the Day #6:

Thundersong Trumpeter - RW
Creature - Human Soldier
{T}: Target creature can't attack or block this turn.

Initial thoughts:

Wow. This card is amazing. I haven't even thought of synergies yet with this card and it just stands out. It's a two-drop and a pretty insane one at that. Better yet, it's only a common, which means a few of these were probably floating around the table in Limited. Reminds me a little of Stun Sniper, but is more of a candidate to attack. Stun Sniper might be more useful so you can tap a creature end of opponent's turn, and then tap a creature on your own turn, but if you're playing aggro, you are probably winning trades in life totals anyways and would rather play this card.

It's a two-cost 2/1, but what it lacks in toughness it makes up for in it's tap effect. The way I see it, if you're winning, it's either enabling your creatures to swing or is doing the swinging itself. Playing this card means you have Red and White in your deck, two of the colors with the best removal in the game. If you're losing, it's still stopping your opponents 6/6. It may not be able to deal with things like Invisible Stalker, but just wow--this card is great.

If it's rarity went up, I don't know what else you could add to it. If it was a 2/2 it could be an uncommon, maybe even a rare. This card would be pretty crazy if it was in today's Standard.

An amazing card. I might even say it goes in every R/W aggro deck. 4/5
