RCotD #166

Random Card of the Day #166:

Flourishing Defenses - 4G
Whenever a -1/-1 counter is placed on a creature, you may put a 1/1 green Elf Warrior creature token onto the battlefield.

Initial Thoughts:

An interesting card. I definitely feel like I should play this with Black Sun's Zenith. Wipe the board, get a bunch of little dudes--it just seems too classic.

This card just sets up for so many cards so it can be abused. It could be simple like running infect or Black Sun's Zenith. Or it could as convoluted as Two Grim Poppets getting you as many elves as you want.

Just an all around fun card, and as a combo card there are many variations and other cards that work with this. It may not be an instant-win combo, but it can be pretty hard to dislodge this on the battlefield--not many colors can deal with enchantments. 4/5
