We continue mulling through the newly released, complete Dark Ascension visual spoiler here with card number 81 of 158:
Why, why, why does this not have flashback and at least be a competent analog to Rally the Peasants. Sure, Bar the Door gives more toughness than Rally the Peasants gives power, but still. If it had flashback, it would have been closer to Rally the Peasants. Without flashback, it becomes closer to Hysterical Blindness. One version is playable and the other is not.
I got nothing. This is a card designed to fill out the white common slot of a new set. Unless you can think of a card combination that takes advantage of many of your creatures getting a boost in toughness, I think the best use of Bar the Door is to just admire its art and then move on.
