Random Card of the Day #48:
Charging Paladin - 2W
Creature - Human Knight
Whenever Charging Paladin attacks it gains +0/+3 until end of turn.
A 2/2 for 3. I don't really like his effect. I feel some how it's not out of flavor, but like, against the mechanics of Magic. Normally when you attack you get something, you know, offensive. He adds 3 to his toughness. I suppose that's useful but I feel (especially in white) that he should get Battle Cry or something when attacking and +0/+3 when blocking. At least to me that would make more sense than the way it is now.
It's not like you'd Condemn your own creature to gain 5 life with this guy. He's also overcosted. He really would only see play in Limited or maybe if you are using the preconstructed deck he came in. (Divine vs. Demonic) If I bought that deck I would replace him pretty fast--probably with Kazmandu Blademaster or Elite Inquisitor. Still a good card in draft but there's still a lot of better options.
Preconstructed: 5/5 (I mean he is auto-include, right?)
