New Card - Faith's Shield

We continue mulling through the newly released, complete Dark Ascension visual spoiler here with card number 86 of 158:


First Impression

Now this is the type of Fateful Hour card that I've been waiting for. It's obvious that the majority of Fateful Hour cards in Dark Ascension are almost exclusively geared towards token or white weenie decks. Faith's Shield falls under this category to a certain extent, but I think I can still work with it. The thing I like most about it is that it could be incredibly useful and reasonably costed whether or not Fateful Hour is enabled or not. This is something that is sometimes not true.

When the permanent you're saving is named Death's Shadow, it'll be great. And when you're at 3 life with a 10/10 beater and they decide to try and Lightning Bolt your face, it'll be awesome. This might actually be the card that my concept deck has been waiting for.


Deck Ideas

I know I keep talking about this theoretical deck every time a Fateful Hour card is spotlighted, so let me just run down the list of cards that I'm thinking about: I think I'll call it, "Suicide Rainbow."
