Veteran's Voice

I actually just had the thought of this card when I first saw it. I didn't like it. I was pretty bad at Magic then. I thought that tapping a creature to give another one +2/+1 was pretty bad. Spending an enchant creature card to do it isn't all that much better (or appealing) and I'm a much better player now than I was then.

Veteran's Voice

Props to Doll for paying attention on what day it is today and going with a theme. I can't call Veteran's Voice a great card, but I can't really call it bad, either. Giving a creature the ability to pick-and-choose what creature gets +2/+1 until the end of turn isn't horrible, and the price, sitting at a single red mana, is right. Unfortunately, Veteran's Voice is a creature enchantment (or enchantment - aura), which means your opponent can easily two-for-one you if he destroys the creature this card is attached to. It also doesn't provide quite enough boost to your team to really warrant risking losing the two-for-one fight, like past cards like Rancor, Armadillo Cloak, and Elephant Guide have.

Now here's a creature I've not heard of before. I've been a card dealer for over 5 years, and I still occasionally run across a previously unknown.

Voice gives a creature an ability not usually found in Red - an offensive AND defensive pump. Defensive pumps are usually relegated to White or Green now. For the cost, it's not bad, but it's still an aura, which means, if your creature gets killed, you probably got 2 for 1'd. Still, not horrible filler for limited play (in case you ever get to play Alliances limited ;)

Constructed - 1.5
Casual - 2
Limited - 2.5

Just the card we need on Vertans Day, you know somthing was planned on this day. Anyway, in Limited for its time i would say it was good perhapes even great if you have more then a couple of creatures. You could play it on a meat shield to pump a beast for the winning kill or somthing else that runs through your mind. Possibly good in constructed, i'm not quite sure, i wasn't playing around this set. But for casual, it's useless to me, especially by this day and age their is like more then 5 years of cards better then this one... to end, Happy B-day Veterans, and thatnks for your sacrifice has yet again influenced Magic the Gathering!

Veteran's Voice - Oh man, here's an old favorite. Why, you ask? Does this look like just a silly normal Aura, with nothing much going for it? The combo potential here is enormous. Although there are probably better combos using more current cards, but I want to give you a taste of what we used this card for back in 1996. There's only one creature who's awesome power could be suitably combined with the Veteran's Voice: the Brass Man. That's right, the janky Arabian Nights card (or Revised version than everyone back then had a million of) was the perfect combination. For each activation of the Brass Man during your upkeep, you could tap him to give something else +2/+1. That's a hefty bonus for 1 mana, and you can do it over and over! So pump the heck out of your Escape Artist, Phantom Warrior or whatever else. I love this card, but that's probably just nostalgia talking.
