RCotD #95

Random Card of the Day #94:

Spirit Link - W
Enchantment - Aura
Enchant permanent
Enchant creature
Whenever enchanted creature deals damage, you gain that much life.

Initial thoughts:

I was actually excited when I saw this card showed up on random. I actually like this mechanic. This is actually better than Lifelink. Why? I'll show you:

1) It is always at least lifelink. This means it works with tap effects.
2) It stacks with lifelink. Keywords don't stack with each other, but effects with words do.
3) Stick it on your opponent's creature.

Now this isn't saying the card is amazing, however, it is a particularly annoying force against aggro decks. You can see it's more powerful cousin Armadillo Cloak.

Basically the mechanic is designed much better than Lifelink. That's why I like it. It's pretty versatile since you can put it on your opponents creatures too. This card in particular is weak, but if you put it with other effects, it becomes particularly strong. 3/5
