I can't see this card seeing any play outside of block.  Maybe there will be a whack critter deck in t2, but in almost any case, Glorious Anthem is better.

In limitied, it won't be that good - keep it in the board.

Constructed: 2.5
Limited: 1.5

Today, we get two tastes that blend well together. Take Crusade; then take
the flavor of Onslaught block by making it a creature type instead of the
color white, and you get this card.

I don't think it is particularly strong outside of Onslaught Block
Constructed. There's not that many tribal decks these days, and even fewer
are playing white. I'd rather pay the 1 extra {W} to make it all of my
creatures.

In limited, it is about as bad, since it works for both players. I wouldn't
touch it here either.

Onslaught Block Constructed: 2
All other formats: 1

Shared Triumph is a cheap enchantment which gives a Crusade effect to members of whatever tribe you select. In constructed this card would be fine in a tribe based deck. However, I am not yet sure that tribes will be the way to go in current T2. Once another set is released in the Onslaught block we should have a better idea of the value of this card. In limited the card is decent because virtually any deck you play will wind up with a tribal component. Once you see how man tribe members you have in your deck you will be able to determine if this card is useful.

  Not too bad in limited as you'll probably have a few
creatures all of the same type so shared triumph will
give them all a boost - just be careful to make sure
your opponent isn't playing a lot of the same creature
types as you are. A 3 in limited.

Great in constructed - it could resurrect WW weenie
(using soldiers probably)and make it pretty powerful.
In general though it'll be good in constructed so long
as you don't face too many mirror matches.

I did have a thought that you could put this in a deck
with loads of mistform creatures (eg play the triumph,
choose creature type microwave, pay 1 make my mistform
creature a microwave until end of turn) but then I
realised you could just use glorious anthem)

A 3.5 in constructed.

In the big scheme of things, it doesn't look like it'd have a huge impact on
constructed. I think Shared Triumph is strongest in limited simply because
of the odds that you will draft same creature types, like elves, clerics, or
beasts. Not to mention this is from Onslaught. So for those PT Qualifiers
coming up... this may be a big card; IF you can get it.

In constructed, I think it could be good in some decks, and useless in
others. Overall, it's really not worth the space.

Constructed: 2.5/5
Limited: 4.5/5

Danny Tatro        Well its basically a lesser crusade. Not too much to say about this either way. It was made to be used with soldiers, but its still just not good enough. Really this is not a very good card since to play it you have to play alot of a creature type, which unless maybe your playing extended white weeie with shadows. But even then you don't need it.

       Draft its a little better since you can play more of a creature type and alot bit of creature boost is good, but its usually bad unless you play alot of misform creatures who are usually weak anyways. Its most likely a bad//iffy pick. Maybe if you play alot of zombies? =/ Still its not that good, because it doesn't cause your opponent to go, "oh my god, for whatever am I to do?" Also misform creature MUST choose a from a list of legal creature types, so you can't call "Hamburglar" as the creature type, although you could easily choose something simple like "Turtle" since its not in the format. So make sure if you use the mistform//triumph trick to make it something the opponent couldn't duplicate, although thats still expensive and slow.

Constructed: 1.5
Limited: 2
