RCotD #117

Random Card of the Day #117:

Lionheart Maverick - W
Creature - Human Knight
{4}{W}: Lionheart Maverick gets +1/+2 until end of turn.

Initial thoughts:

Not bad. Another one drop with some utility. It's no Nimble Mongoose, but I would probably take this over others like Infantry Veteran or Sanctuary Cat/Devoted Hero.

The vigilance is what I think actually makes the card decent. The pump effect is a little too expensive (would be pretty good at {2}{W} or maybe {W}{W}), but at least the option is there to use it, perhaps making it an efficient blocker if you have instants to use. It's also a relevant creature type, as knights have become somewhat popular since M10-M11.

A decent one drop, it's not going to win any game, and most of the time I would want the card beneath it. That's probably my style of play, but in an aggressive one-drop deck that's not as hyper efficient as Zoo, it could definitely see a spot. 3/5
