RCotD #193

Random Card of the Day #193:

Benevolent Ancestor - 2W
Creature - Spirit
{T}: Prevent the next 1 damage that would be dealt to target creature or player this turn.

Initial Thoughts:

Reminds me of Reinforced Bulwark. It is now splashable in every deck--as long as you wanted a Defender.

Most of the time I'm against Defenders. They typically lack evasion and power to kill enemy creatures, your opponent can see them coming, and they are subject to creature removal spells.

All to stop--what?-- a 2/2 swinging at you? If you paid the price of a 3-cost defender there was easily a 3-cost removal spell, or counterspell that prevents your opponent from furthering his game, since that obviously what you are doing.

Defenders don't win games, they stall games. And while it may good or maybe even the best card at it, I still wouldn't play the card. 2/5
