RCotD #107

Random Card of the Day #107:

Infantry Veteran - W
Creature - Human Soldier
{T}: Target attacking creature gets +1/+1 until end of turn.

Initial Thoughts:

This card isn't that bad actually. Normally I'm totally against one-drops unless they are hyper-efficient, such as Kird Ape, Nimble Mongoose, Glistener Elf, Gladecover Scout, etc. This one I can actually see being somewhat useful in limited though.

However, I still think it should have "Target attacking or blocking creature" so that way it might actually be pretty damn good when blocking, effectively a 2/2 when blocking, probably better since it would be able to hand the +1/+1 to another blocker.

But it doesn't have that on it, so it's just a really good support when attacking. Giving this card vigilance could have also been really good.

But it's just a decent card that can pump others. It's not quite as utility as other one drops such as Gideon's Lawkeeper, but it has its uses. 3/5
