    EDH… Here i come!

  • Zachary Cooper

    I’m building a B/W aggro deck for SOI standard and I can’t decide if this is worth playing. My 4 drop slot is already clogged with Gideon and Kalitas, but it’s likely I can get 2-3 abilities with this guy. Ayli for deathtouch, Drana for f-strike/flying, Gideon for indestructable, etc. Maybe as a 1 of. If only it was a 3 drop.

    • Kevan Kramer

      He is not worth it in aggro

  • Arcus Diabolus

    Hello, Ra’s al Ghul.

    Now we need Batman.

    • Arcus Diabolus

      Ok, maybe he doesn’t quite look like Ra’s but it was the first thing I thought of when I saw this XD

  • Derek Mullins

    I really want there to be an equipment of his sword…

  • Harv Prentiss

    First strike deathtouchers.



      • Hustleb3rry

        Standard Sliver move ;)

    • Happy The Cat

      yeah but Ankle Shanker could do that by himself and didn’t see much play

      • Harv Prentiss

        this is easier to cast and one mana less. Plus it has more benefits then that.

        • Happy The Cat

          this doesnt come with haste and people know when and what he will do.
          Shanks was like Randy Orton, he would just come out of nowhere.

          • Chaospyke

            It doesn’t come with haste, but its not hard to give it to him. I mean Expedite.
            Also Shanks never hexproofed or indestructibled

      • Jonathan Reynolds

        An upside over Ankle Shanker is that this does it on all combats, not just attacks. So even if it doesn’t have haste, it still locks down the board without removal. It also has 3 toughness instead of 2, which can make all the difference in the world.

    I noticed skulk snuck its way alongside all the evergreen keywords.

    • A random guy

      isn’t prowess evergreen now though? I didn’t see it with the keywords

      • Chaospyke

        Cuz if he gave prowess, that’d just be broken.

        • A random guy

          that’s true

    • Hedronal

      This leads me to believe that that’s evergreen now.

      • Mr.Mayhem631

        It’s a block keyword. That’s why it’s on the card.
        Source- Blogatog

        • Hedronal

          So was prowess, so my hopes are still up for skulk.

  • Nanya

    Oh, hey, it’s Concerted Effort on legs!

    Save that this doesn’t give landwalk.

    • Jazzyboy1

      THANK YOU! I’ve been racking my mind for a couple hours now since I saw this spoiler, trying to figure out where I had seen the effect before.

      • Nanya

        Not a problem, I just got a Concerted Effort for my roommate’s Kalmine deck, he’s going to so want this card.

    • AlaAlba

      It also triggers at combat, not upkeep, so the protective keywords are less effective (Hexproof/Indestructible on this Protection/Shroud on Effort), and this has more keywords as well as a few notable exceptions. But yeah very reminiscent. And I now will have a deck for this in addition to my Concerted Effort deck.

      • Hedronal

        Concerted Effort doesn’t grant shroud.

        • AlaAlba

          That would explain why there are no shroud creatures in my Concerted Effort deck.

          More seriously, I was just going from memory. Point remains.

  • Jazzyboy1

    It’s a bit of a shame Prowess isn’t there, but I guess that’d a little overpowered xD

    This is still going straight into my Modern Soldiers deck. I’ve got a playset of first strikers in there, so that alone makes it worth it. Kytheon can also make himself indestructible, so if I do that before combat, all my creatures will get indestructible, so that’s pretty awesome. I’ve also been thinking of adding Abzan Falconer back in, as I’ve run it before and it worked well; and now, it would give all my creatures flying :D. I’m sure I can find a good soldier with lifelink if I take a look, but the other cards I’m already running already make this Odric great.

    • Hedronal

      The only mono-white soldier with unconditional lifelink is Dawnbringer Charioteers. I’m looking into this as well for Commander purposes.

      • Jazzyboy1

        I’ve been thinking of splashing blue, in which case I could run Sejiri Merfolk, which would almost always have lifelink because I would run more Plains than Islands, and I would run Prairie Streams for my dual lands.

        Blue would give me access to:
        Daxos of Meletis
        Lavinia of the Tenth
        Sejiri Merfolk(from which Odric could give all my creatures first strike and lifelink)
        Azorius Charm

        That’s not really enough cards for splashing blue to be worth it though. Hopefully SOI will offer more.

        Are you playing Soldier Tribal in EDH? That sounds like it must be very hard to build, considering how few good lords Soldiers have. Also mono-white is always inherently weak in EDH because there isn’t much good white card draw or tutors.

        • Hedronal

          I’m not playing soldier tribal at the moment, my mono-white commander deck is equipment-based, with a slight Kor subtheme, led by Nahiri.

  • Coire Vosika

    Angelic Overseer anyone?

  • Harv Prentiss

    One interesting thing is if this card will in the future get other effects added to it or will it be restricted to only those listed on the card. For instance they make a new effect for creatures in the future.

    • Jazzyboy1

      Pretty sure it’ll be restricted to only those listed on the card.

      If they really wanted to make it adapt to future changes, they could have had it read ‘At the beginning of each combat, creatures you control gain each static ability on creatures you control until end of turn’.(or something along those lines)

      That would have been a bit broken though. Or they could have just made ‘evergreen’ it’s own keyword, so that it could read ‘creatures you control gain each evergreen ability a creature you control has until end of turn’.

      • Hedronal

        I kind of want to see evergreen become a keyword itself that way, but I’m stuck on how to make what keywords count as evergreen clear.

    • Hedronal

      If so, that would have probably happened on one of the similar cards by now. Also, this isn’t even all of the evergreen creature keywords, prowess is missing already.

    • Mr.Mayhem631

      The card does what it says.

  • Happy The Cat

    all right, where’s my Greater Morphling? I need it for the things

  • Scud422

    What? No Banding?

    • Chaospyke

      IKR? NO Shadow either? or Landwalks? or Protections? Or Fear.

      • Hedronal

        And of course, it needs Islandhome.

        • AlaAlba

          Islandhome best keyword. They stopped printing it because it was waaay too OP. :)

        • MBase


  • Zombie

    Instant member of the Top 10 White Generals, without a doubt. Concerted Effort on legs is huge, even despite it being a toned down variation.

    Combine the two for maximum ability coverage, as they both grant sharing of certain abilities that the other does not.

  • Cullen Straut

    If this guy doean’t get some buddies he won’t be viable in standard. Need 2 or 1 drop with haste. If you can get haste and Flying going it would be really sweet.

  • Dewill

    so if i have a vampire nighthawk in play with this card will it give all my other creatures flying, lifelink, and death touch as well? and if i have two creatures one with life link and the other with double strike, do all my creatures now have life link and double strike each combat phase?

    • Rovkir Hexus

      Yes. It’s like Soulflayer, but it’s at beginning of combat and affects all of your creatures.

  • Norsdef

    Nice Sliver!

    I mean…

  • Marky Day

    Very cool commander possibilities, but I guess I’d rather put him in the 99. He’d be an all-star in something like Tajic Blade of The Legion. Play a board-wipe after your combat phase, when all your weenies are indestructible. Very tempting as a commander just because of how well he curves into Angelic Overseer though.

  • Vizzerdrix

    I’m for once happy sulk and menace are keywords, this guy is ridiculous, doesn’t give the protections and I wanna say land walk abilities of concerted effort but I’m still very happy with this, soi is slowly shaping up to be one of my favorite sets

    • Vizzerdrix

      Just checked effort lot more abilities with this but combined or as 1 of the 99 in really any deck is fantastic, could push rally even though rally is probably not the best as the creatures only have abilities as etb abilities but Gideon can give indestructible for standard, ojutai flying hexproof, there’s a lot of standard options

  • Hedronal

    Nevermind where did Odric get what looks like it’s part lightsaber, where can I get one of those?

    • Nate Winchester

      He stole Glamdring from Gandalf!


  • JSpence

    I first got into Magic when I played DotP 2013, and my deck of choice was Peacekeepers, headlined by Odric himself. Will always remember him and that deck. That being said, I dig this card. It’ll be a staple of any white deck I create for years to come.

  • ZomboJenkins

    Prefer the m13 Odric, but I still absolutely love this. Universal cairn wanderer that depends on stuff that’s out?

  • Arnez Wright

    Two words: Soul Sisters.

    • Jazzyboy1

      I’m pretty sure Soul Sisters doesn’t want this.

      Serra Ascendant can win games on it’s own. When you have it, you don’t need your other creatures to have flying and lifelink. Squadron Hawk and Spectral Procession are basically just chump blockers. Ajani’s Pridemate getting flying might be good, but I wouldn’t run a 4 mana card just for the games when I get Pridemate out.

  • Kotadis

    Now just wait 4 turns under the protection of a canopy cover and a ghostly prison and a token generator and cast akroma angel of wrath

    Very convoluted combo

  • NC

    Aven Sunstriker will remain in standard. Just sayin’.

  • Atarka Effreet

    So are there humans who help Avacyn kill otehr humans?
