I really like Bant's rhino soldiers - they're
very cool and very stylish. And some of them are
very powerful, like Dauntless Escort for one.
The obvious application is to protect large
numbers of your other creatures from mass
destruction spells, but he also makes your own
such spells one-sided. Oh, and he's a 3/3
himself. What a silly, amazing card.
This little Rhino is stiring up a lot buzz.
Wrath of God, hosed, Volcanic Fallout, hosed,
Firespout, hosed, Infest, well not that great.
Casual & Multiplayer:
It is okay for the casual crowd. I am not sure
It is good for limited, but not great. It is a
hard call, I will have to try him out to see if
he is worth it.
Overall a great new Rhino to lead your army into
Magic The Gathering COTD: Dauntless Escort
Welcome back today’s card is a rhino solider of
Bant that can be turned sideways and also
protect your dudes from mass removal. Dauntless
Escort is a 3/3 for three in the combination of
green and white mana. The well costed body is
accompanied by a soild effect, one that will
most likely allow this rhino to see constructed
play. In constructed Wrath of God and other
board sweepers are effectively used to punish
players for overextending with their creatures,
this solider can help turn the tables on players
who rely to heavily on mass removal to deal with
a creature assault. In standard Volcanic
Fallout, Pyroplasm, Wrath of God, and a host of
other removal spells see a fair share of play.
Dauntless Escort provides an answer to imposing
removal spells while being attached to a body
that can still go aggro on opponents. Green and
white allow it to be played in a number of decks
that can benefit from an additional creature
that doubles as protection for other creatures.
In the other competitive formats I will
tentatively mark this guy as a maybe considering
giving your guys indescribability is a power
effect. Limited allowing some of your creatures
protection from burn or removal spells makes
this guy a solid pick that can attack and still
play defensively for your team. Casual and
multiplayer this guy is great if you’re running
green and white he is a solid choice to help
protect your legion of creatures. Be sure to
tune in next week for an interesting assortment
