Fiendslayer Paladin can’t be the target of black or red spells your opponents control



  • clockmusses

    very bad

    • David Bannister

      You’re bad.

  • Jace Must Die

    direct upgrade to Paladin en-Vec and about even with Mirran Crusader.
    one of the best three cost humans.

    • Sequoyah Sebastian Hoffman

      Not quite a direct upgrade from Paladin en-Vec as he had ‘true’ protection from Black and Red. For similar reasons I would say that he is also inferior to Mirran Crusader, arguably, of course.

      • Sovereign

        but protection keeps you from targeting it as well, so this is the better in some cases such as you casting Fists of the Anvil or using Ral Zarek’s + to untap him, upside to proction would be it prevents damage as well, so in other cases such as Pestilence Demon or Blasphemous Act, so it really is a trade off.
        one this that JMD did forget is that for the addtional one the gained ability is amazing when compared to Knight of Meadowgrain.

  • krlmaahs

    this is what happens when an artist watches Starwars before drawing :)

  • Spirophore

    This card makes my pants tighten.

  • Zombie

    This just might make me have to rebuild my White Weenie deck.

    Dare I say, this might even by Modern playable.

    • Sean Mclorie

      doubt it better options

      • Zombie

        Better options than a spot removal and targetted burn immune 2/2 First Strike/Lifelink for 1WW?

        Good luck finding one. Fiendslayer Paladin is the perfect early game Sword carrier.

        • Sean Mclorie

          IN modern hmm lemme see lets start with mirran crusader

          • Jeremysclone

            Ya but Mirran Crusader dies to Lightning Bolt, and this guy doesn’t. And last time I checked, lightning bolt was pretty popular :)

          • Sean Mclorie

            but they both die to pyroclasm and that is also popular so is slag storm wich they also both die too honestly mirran crusader is stronger pound for pound

          • Sean Mclorie

            also there is a little guy who sees very little play you may know him as palidin en vec hes got straight up prot. hes very similar and isnt played so i just do not see a big future here isnt a bad card though

          • that guy

            both cant block storm crow

          • Sean Mclorie

            but they can block squire

          • Zombie

            Fiendslayer doesn’t die to any popular spot removal or burn spells, save Path and Swords, and Mirran Crusader doesn’t gain you life.

            Mirran Crusaders get Bolted against Jund, RDW, Zoo, or any build running Lightning Bolt. Fiendslayer Paladins do not.

            Mirran Crusaders get Lightning Helix’d and Ajani’d against Zoo, Fiendslayer Paladins do not.

            Fiendslayer Paladin wins the attrition war with Lifelink

            Both of them die to White Removal like Path, and both can get bounced or flickered.

            Fiendslayer Paladin has far less downsides than Mirran Crusader. And as someone who used to play Honor Weenie builds, Fiendslayers are just better.

            A huge Mirran Crusader gets chumped and does nothing. A huge Fiendslayer Paladin will still gain you life if it gets chumped.

            It’s just better…

          • Sean Mclorie

            it is a cross between knight of the meadow grain and palidin en vec but that doesnt mean its viable honestly yes it dodges bolt but dies in combat with tarmo k-ape and l-lion crusader trades and at very worse the cards you mention are a 1-1 for trade so meh crusader is more intimidating yes lifelink is relevent i get that but his psuedo pros arnt zomg great mirran crusader has straight up protection ergo cannot be blocked by 40% of coulerd creatures in magic this guy can be blocked by almost every creature save one that rules would prohibit

    • Silver

      For a sword carrier, the crusader is way better:
      Cons: Dies to bolt, l.helix and ajani.
      Pros: Cant be blocked by anything green or black
      Hits twice and makes the swords trigger twice. Also he rapes people with a sword of war and peace.

  • Joshua McTiernan

    Shock-proof, Ultimate Price- Proof, Doomblade-Proof…OH MY GOD, I LOVE IT!

    • Zombie

      Don’t forget Putrefy AND Abrupt Decay as well.

  • HM

    Might have a home as a sideboard option in Bant Hexproof against R/G aggro primarily or possibly Jund in standard.

  • selesnyaWarden

    very interesting with lifelink and firststrike, all it needs is unflinching courage and breakfast is severed,,,at least before the wrath takes care of him or another type of mass removal does. Still good as a small beater though.

  • selesnyaWarden

    oops, I meant breakfast is served,, like good morning kind of stuff, while the opposite would be thundermaw hell kitten saying, lights out or goodnight,,, before a selesnya charm takes him out of the skies LOL,

  • Nodnarbion King

    looks like a jedi

  • Graymalkin86

    Isaac Clarke goes to the Ren Faire.

  • Sayer

    Needs to have protection instead but a really good card for standard, ok for modern

    • Zombie

      A 2/2 for 1WW with First Strike and Lifelink, that also for some ungodly reason has Prot Red/Black… why on earth would you ever think that wouldn’t be completely broken? Powerhouse White creatures need to be able to die at some point.

  • Sean Mclorie

    guys decent has some standard playability
