Glorious Anthem

I enjoy cards like this because they are pretty straight forward. You make your guys bigger and stronger to bash more face. You also keep them from getting snuffed be some small damage dealing board sweepers like Pyroclasm. Solid card.

Glorious Anthem

A classic card. Especially helpful in White Weenie decks, it gives your creatures that little bit of extra oomph to push through damage. Also useful in limited formats, and it can be fun in casual decks too.

Glorious Anthem

Back when 8th edition was still on the drawing boards, the players got to vote on whether they wanted Crusade or Glorious Anthem. When I saw that vote, I figured that it was going to herald a return of white weenie. Then the players voted for Glorious Anthem for some reason. White Weenie had to wait years to return. I've never really liked Glorious Anthem. But then, I've never really liked White Weenie. Or White. Still, I've used it in draft many times. White seems pretty strong in 9th edition drafting, so why not. Still, it's just kind of a dull card.

Glorious Anthem

This is the card that inspired the White Weenie archetype as it has appeared for several years. Obviously any white deck with plenty of smallish creatures can get incredible mileage out of it. In Limited, I'm on the fence. You're less likely to have the army of Knights that the Anthem lends itself best to, but in Limited games, especially Core Set limited games, victory is often decided by seemingly insignificant advantages. The Anthem could easily represent the last few points of damage you need.

Constructed-- 3.5
Casual-- 3
Limited-- 3
