New Card - Wing Crafter

More leftovers from Monday's Avacyn Restored spoiler extravaganza:

First Impression

Like I said about Silverblade Paladin, I don't really know what to make of Soulbond just yet. With some mechanics (like Miracle), I have an immediate reaction. But with Soulbond, it's really hard to tell without testing it for myself. That being said, here's a 1/1 for one mana that has a pretty cool ability if your deck is starving for fliers. It's probably not useful anywhere outside of Limited, but within Limited, evasion of any kind is always at a premium. Put that altogether and you have yourself a card that fills out the set nicely.

Deck Ideas

Unlike Silverblade Paladin where I guessed that would be best as a 1-of (because the effectiveness of the paladin's ability diminishes if you draw multiples), I'd gladly play maybe 2 of these in my limited deck. It fills out the 1cc slot and again, it gives evasion to your best creatures.
