Anthoussa, Setessan Hero - Theros Spoiler

Anthousa, Setessan Hero


  • Color: Green
  • Type: Legendary Creature - Human, Warrior
  • Rarity: Rare
  • Set:

Heroic — Whenever you cast a spell that targets Anthousa, Setessan Hero, up to three target lands you control each become 2/2 Warrior creatures until end of turn. They’re still lands.

The warriors she leads can rarely keep pace with her, and neither can the tales.

    Hmm, I always try to see cards in a positive light, but i gotta admit this one eludes me. In a situation where you only have Anthousa on the field and your opponent only have 1 creature too, this card is crazy. You giant growth and your sure to pass at least 6 damage while probably taking down your opponent creature at the same time.

    Problem is you’d want to board it out against BW in fear of quicken+Supreme Verdict, and red too fearing Hooming Lightning, shock or even the new monstrous red creature.

    At best, we might see it as a one-of in the sideboard. Commander-wise, Wizards will need to release much more support for land creatures to see this being played.

      This will never see Commander play until every single copy of both Rude Awakening and Natural Affinity are torn up and burnt.

    think wizards has vowed never again to release intros with competitive cards after “avacyn restored” with wolfir silverheart, blood artist, restoration angel, and zealous conscripts.

      Which I’m completely fine with. Intro decks shouldn’t be playable in tournaments.

      They’re tools to teach new players the game and the play- style of whatever color archetype they chose.

      Event Decks are the next step beyond that, and it’s a good system for people jumping into the game.

      You start off with the basics, get slightly more complicated and stronger, then once you have a decent understanding of the game, you can build your own deck and play at an FNM and probably go 1-3 or 2-2.

      Past that, you expand your collection, build decks that aren’t piles of janky garbage, and start going 3-1 and 4-0.

        You might had misunderstood me; i said intros with competitive cards, not competitive intros. I was simply pointing out that none of the cards shown as the intro foil rare seem like they will have any uses is standard the way that blood artist, restoration angel, wolfir silverheart and zealous conscripts where. It seems as if wizards intentionally giving intros lesser rares (not that they should get the much better). Just an observation on the lowering power level of intro packs.

      this bothers me, because alot of the time it was the only way to afford these cards lol, putting good cards somewhere you are guarantedd to get them is a good way to fix the price, because when buying an entire deck is cheaper than buying seperate cards, there’s something wrong lol
