    I can dig it. Another thing for Bant Auras.

    Combos well with that new cat dude, I cast a 1 drop enchantment, I get a 2/2 cat token, that I may put the enchantment on if it’s an aura, and then I get to put a +1/+1 counter on a creature. Unfortunately it’s too specific and will only see play a decks that are just completely built for enchantments, now if it was whenever cast an artifact or enchantment that might help, or if it was creature or enchantment, that would probably see a lot of play.

    I’m not a fan of cards that don’t impact the board state when they’re played. This will certainly see EDH play at the least, though.

    I doubt it will ever make it in Standard, when it has things like Unflinching Courage and Primeval Bounty to compete with.

    • Kevan Kramer

      Actually when it goes into the field it put a counter on a creature you control, but ya unflinching courage is better. This actually makes Bounty better because you drop it (Oath of the Ancient Wood) on a faster turn, and when bounty comes in you get another counter on a creature.

      • Zombie

        Paying 2G to put one counter on a creature isn’t that big of a deal, even considering follow up turns.

        Bant Auras/Hexproof has no room for an enchantment like this.

  • Joshua Knox

    Bant auras is even sweeter now :D

    • Blousington

      Bant Auras was sweet?

      • Zombie

        People talking about Bant Auras probably intend/ mean Bant Hexproof, which is a disgustingly strong tempo deck.

        Yes, it was/is/will be sweet. Geist of Saint Traft with Spectral Flight and Unflinching Courage = gg no re.
