First strike When Knight of the White Orchid enters the battlefield, if an opponent controls more lands than you, you may search your library for a Plains card, put it onto the battlefield, then shuffle your library.

    I’m not too knowledgeable when it comes to modern but this very well seems like it could be good for Modern. Great when you’re on the draw or running short on lands and can search for a shock land too, not a “basic” lands like a couple previous card spoiled stipulated. Even, better it’s a 2/2 first strike for 2 though double white could cause problems sometimes. Seems awesome in general.

    • XC

      Modern, where it already exists and sees minor but not non-existant play, yes.

      • Back_Alley

        Oh, didn’t even know it was a reprint. Wasn’t playing back around when it was first printed.

  • Kaiser

    Modern material for sure, cut mana advantage and is a 2/2 for 2 with first strike…also the land DON’T COME TAPPED

    • If it was playable it would already be seeing play.

      • Kaiser

        Mmm true, i just get over excited xD, but i like two of this for human decks in modern i like the extra land possibility, in standard is a beast for sure (And yes, my english is too bad :V)

      • Alex Egertsen

        It has seen considerable amounts of play since Modern has been a format. Just because top performing decks are seeing tons of play now over others does not diminish the playability of a card. Modern is still a high and diverse format. Modern does feel like Rock-Paper-Scissors if that is how you play. PV made a point about the format awhile ago. The issue is there are not enough players that want to take the time to find the interactions they feel more attracted to whatever won the last major event. Tron may have won a recent GP great. Or Collected Elves? These decks have been around for a long time. Elves just got a new toy is all. Elfball is far more old school than anything. What makes a card playable is how early can you have it benefit you before your opponent hurts you? This Knight is an old favorite! As he gears you up another land if you are playing aggro on the draw. That kind of card advantage goes a long ways.

        • This doesn’t see play at all! Give me one good list that has it and then and only then will I believe you. Yes Elves and Elfball have been around for a long time, however it hasn’t had the right tools for the modern meta for an extensive period of time as well. This card is hardly an old favorite, it hasn’t seen much, if any, high level play since its time in standard. Yes thinning is good and so is ramp but in the decks that this would most fit in don’t need the ramp because they are cheating in creatures anyway, and the thinning is pretty negligible when there are other 2 mana creatures that are better for the deck.

  • Ben Grondin

    A sweet reprint! Sees minimal Modern play but still nice to get into circulation!

    • Alex Egertsen

      Knights are still a thing. Just is really underplayed at the moment. What I am more worried about is if Soldiers become a thing?

      • Happy The Cat

        I think that humans and mono white aggro are bigger threats now that we can good cards like this easier

  • Melissa Juice

    A little too strong for my tastes, but not too crazy, I suppose.

  • Zombie

    Oh wow, this is back?

    Man I would never have called this for a reprint in Origins.

    White/X Aggro in Standard just got a power player.

    • I know that Alara standard only had Mistveil and basics but could this be a hint at some lands with Basic types?

      • Zombie


        I was pretty sure that the Legendary blue land was the hint at that.

        If that Legendary island card is real, a full cycle is definitely a thing.

        • Well I was assuming that 1) because that card looks super fake and 2) we just got the painlands confirmed in the set that we won’t be getting a Legendary land cycle in the set.

          • Zombie

            It’s the final Core Set ever. If they don’t even do Legendary lands, what’s the point?

          • Happy The Cat

            being at four mana on turn three is the point
            dude mono white seems powerful
            hixus, seeker, new Gideon, the two mana lieutenant
            this seems like a good color

        • Kameenook

          I hoe you realize the world is over if the blue land is real.

          • Zombie

            Don’t get me wrong, it’s absolutely broken, but it looks almost real to me. It looks like it was a picture taken of a computer screen from a downward angle, so it could either be a digital mock up with errors or someone just made it in a custom card creator. Both are possible, but the latter is more plausible.

            I haven’t seen the art used on it before and the name doesn’t sound wrong.

            The formatting on the card is what has me hesitant to believe it’s real.

            If it’s not real, cool.

            If it is, it’s pretty much going to instantly enter Legacy and Vintage.

  • Happy The Cat

    oh, okay, time to dig my playset out of my binders
    good to see you again ketchup

  • Oberon

    this is one of my favorite white cards, great to see it again. Will see standard play, and has seen fringe modern play, so maybe a reprint will bring it to the forefront, especially with the other powerful cards being printed.

  • Hunter Nance

    With the likely return of landfall in BFZ, this is even more powerful.

  • Kameenook

    Hard to cast, but I think the first strike is the hidden reward.

    • Happy The Cat

      what are you talking about?
      mono/devotion white has no problem with casting this
      ketchup is always worth it

  • Psyren

    Is mono white aggro going to be a thing in standard now?

  • Noatzon

    Excellent, was thinking of getting a cuople for EDH and what not C:

  • Sam

    Gonna play UW devotion with this guy, the archangel and Ojutai. gonna be sweeeet
