RCotD #131

Random Card of the Day #131:

Animate Wall - W
Enchantment - Aura
Enchant Wall
Enchanted Wall can attack as though it didn't have defender.

Initial thoughts:

What a bad card. No, really. What is the point of animating a wall? A wall is almost always a defender (except in a few closet cases with shapeshifters) and defenders typically don't have a high power.

A couple of cards that would be good with this:

Wall of Spears
Wall of Swords
Wall of Torches

I say would be because there's a new card, that doesn't allow color specifity, is Warmonger's Chariot. You don't get 2-for-1'd if the creature is destroyed, you can re-equip it, and it is useful on creatures without defender still.

The hard part about rating this card is it does exactly what it's supposed to do. It animates defenders and can turn some of those really cheap costed defenders into something useful. This card could probably not get any cheaper either. It's converted mana cost is one and no way this would be zero.

The wall is still vulnerable to removal, and I've already expressed my hatred of enchantments--which I may be partially biased towards. 1/5
