    Seem’s super legit with Heroic Triggers

    • Kevin Shugg

      I approve of this message

  • Whiskerbro

    Pretty sweet card, honestly. Especially with Elspeth.

  • leeoftheswift

    Im sorry if this is a weird question but how is this different from REPLICATE? Im just confused ;/

    • Kevan Kramer

      Because Strive can only target creature. Replicate can target other things besides creatures.

      • Not necessarily, Kiora’s Dismissal targets Enchantments. And that depends on the Replicate card, Leap of Flame of targets creatures, while Gigadrowse targets any permanent.

    • The difference is that for Replicate, you COPY the spell each time you pay it. With Strive, it just increases the amount of targets. The reason they didn’t just bring back replicate is because, if this card had Replicate instead of Strive, you would keep copying the spell, which you MAY choose new targets for each time. With replicate each copy of the spell could target the same creature, which could trigger Heroic EVERY time, with Strive you can only target the same creature once. That and Replicate was an Izzet thing, and bringing it into this block now would be like throwing Overload onto a card right now.

      • Daniel Sharp

        Actually, since Replicate’s copies are just placed on the stack, not cast, they would not trigger Heroic.

        • Oh yeah, i guess so. For some reason i was thinking replicate said you cast the copies.

  • I love this card. I mean yeah sure your opponent can just Bile Blight and make you cry, but it’s still awesome.

    • Kim Blackburn

      I completely agree. That would be a SUPER good combo.

  • Montague

    What needs to happen is that you use an “infinite” combo to make 1000 mana and 1000 tokens and then target them all to “launch a thousand ships”

    Bonus points if you involve a face somehow.

    I looked to my deck and said “Hey, look at it Naya Heroic! A new toy for you!”, then the deck said “oh man, bring me four of this toy”.

  • Joshua McTiernan

    Phalanx Leader. People think about it…..HOLY COW, THE BLOW OUT!!!!!

    • Kim Blackburn

      The tokens Launch the Fleet would make wouldn’t get the +1/+1 counters. They wouldn’t be in play when the heroic triggered. Good idea but wouldn’t work.

      • Joshua McTiernan

        Aww man. Thanks for pointing that out.

        • Kim Blackburn

          Doesn’t mean he would be good with that card, along with many other heroic creatures.

  • Xero

    I like how this can also be read as: Launch the fleet – XW – Sorcery – Rare – Until end of turn, one plus X target creatures each gain “Whenever this creature attacks, put a 1/1 white Soldier token onto the battlefield tapped and attacking.”

  • yumyum36

    Would a creature be affected by strive multiple times? As in I targeted the same creature twice over and it brought two tokens in?

    • Ermizhad

      You can’t re-target a creature using strive
