Encahntment spells you cast cost 1 Mana less to cast.

Whenever you cast an enchantment spell, you gain 1 life.

The distinction of bearing the gods’ banner is nothing compared to the glory of being closer to Nyx.



  • Kaiser

    This is…nice a “centaur bear” that reduce mana for enchaments and give life for playing enchaments…the only bad thing is…this isnt a enchament creature but dont care about that, good card.

    • Stef

      It still wouldn’t trigger itself, as it needs to be in play.
      Ps. Starfield of Nyx would have been too strong if this was an enchantment as well.

      • Jonathan Mueller

        He was likely talking about interactiong with other copies of itself (as well as the Enchantment theme of the deck in general).

        • Stef

          Doesn’t matter. It would still be to powerful as an Enchantment.

          • Jonathan Mueller

            Nah, doubt it.
            While a solid new constructed tool for enchantment decks, this probably wouldnt warp any formats. Maybe allow for a new archetype, but not get out of control.

          • Stef

            lol you could chain this the following turns for 1 green mana, if this was an enchantment itself. Of course it is too powerful as an enchantment. And in limited you could turn on Starfield of Nyx even faster. This is not meant for Legacy bud. Look at the overall powerlevel of the resent blocks…

  • Aarhg

    Hell yea, more enchantment love. Keep it coming.

  • Jake

    This means turn 3 2 coursers if you’re luck XD!

  • Stef

    Until Theros block rotates, this card will be a Standard staple. If we get more support for enchantment based decks in origins this will be a major player onwards. Better secure my playset now.

  • tyke5140

    Okay, I am going to need at least a playset.

  • MrAptronym

    I am a bit unhappy that this isn’t an enchantment creature… I want it for my ONLY enchantment deck… I guess I will have 4 non-enchantment non-lands

  • Jazzyboy1

    Have they forgotten how to make Bannerets? Bannerets are generally supposed to have synergy with each other.

    I’d still consider playing this because of the lifegain but if any of the Bannerets in Lorwyn didn’t reduce each other’s costs, there’s no way I’d use them.

    • Jonathan Mueller

      Hmm, I initially felt like replying that this isn’t supposed to be a banneret, but then again, they probably had something like that in mind considering that Nyx-striped banner, lol.

      Would have been pretty rad as an Enchantment Creature indeed.
      Being both drawback and upside, there shouldn’t have been any problems pulling that off.

      It could actually have provided a considerable new tool for Modern enchantment-based decks then.

    • Melissa Juice

      Seems like this will still get played somewhere, right? Maybe? It feels strong to me.

      • Jazzyboy1

        In Limited, EDH and fun Casual decks.
        If it was an enchantment creature, it could have seen Standard play.

        It still might see Standard play but I’m slightly doubtful.

  • Magicalman

    Why. Why haven’t they just started printing enchantment creatures

    • OB. viu. s

      There was a whole block of them

  • chess-z

    Well, I need this for my G/B constellation deck. WHY COULD’T YOU HAVE BEEN IN THEROS?

    • Melissa Juice

      Too good there, probably.

      • chess-z

        AND?

        • Melissa Juice

          And what? That’s how R&D decides what will become a card and when.

  • Melissa Juice

    Wow. Thank Krishna that wasn’t in Theros.

    • Happy The Cat

      six months

  • Nharzhool

    God yes! I’ve been looking for a replacement for Cloud Key in my Enchantment Bant Voltron Sunbond Lifegain Deck! Wheee
