Dauntless Escort

Its cost and size make it good. Its ability to blank Wrath effects and turn ruinous combat phases into routs makes it amazing.

Dauntless Escort

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.

Dauntless Escort

 

Constructed: 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 for multiplayer.

 

Limited: 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 victory.

 

Constructed: 4

Casual: 3

Paul 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 of cards.
