RCotD #198

Random Card of the Day #198:

Quickening Licid - 1W
Creature - Licid
{1}{W}, {T}: Quickening Licid loses this ability and becomes an Aura enchantment with enchant creature. Attach it to target creature. You may pay {W} to end this effect.
Enchanted creature has first strike.

Initial Thoughts:

An interesting card. It also seems like there's a cycle of these. However, this one in particular seems like a really nice combat trick. Less so because your opponents can see it coming, and you'd have to hold it back unless it has vigilance somehow.

Actually, I kind of take that back now. Because your opponent can see it coming it is somewhat lacking. Even if you somehow gave this creature flash, you would still be paying 2WW to give a creature first strike, which is still subject to being 2-for-1'd because it's an enchantment. I suppose you could dodge removal by paying an additional white mana, but it is now becoming a really heavy mana sink in this made up scenario.

A nifty card, but out done by many others. 2/5
