Attended Knight

I know that Attended Knight is far from the most spectacular "creature and sidekick/s" card out there, but sometimes you don't need a huge flashy effect or a five-mana-plus battlefield-tilter. Sometimes you just need to get creatures on the table early, and provide a dilemma for the guy who thinks he's clever because he noticed that Doom Blade costs two mana. Sometimes you just want to fill up the table as often and as cheaply as you can, and use all those Soldier tokens and the foil Odric's Crusader you got in the M13 fat pack. When it's one of those times, you can't go wrong with Attended Knight.

Today's card of the day is Attended Knight which is a three mana White
2/2 with First Strike that comes into play with a 1/1 White soldier token.  Getting two creatures with power and toughness equal to the mana cost is quite efficient while adding in First Strike to one and both having supported types makes this an overall strong choice to include in White swarm builds.
 
In Limited this is a great common that is easily splashed with the single White in the cost and should be played in Sealed whenever White is being used.  Tokens are almost always beneficial and a 2/2 with First Strike is quite playable by itself.  In Booster this is a good early pick after a White rare and multiples would be welcome to flesh out any build.

      Welcome to another great review here at Pojo.com! We are looking today at Attended Knight from M13. Attended Knight is a common white creature human knight that costs two generic and one white mana for a 2/2. Attended Knight has First Strike and when it enters the battlefield, you put a 1/1 white Soldier token onto the battlefield.

      Attended Knight is a good card. Two creatures for three mana is pretty decent, especially since one has first strike. Cloudshift it, and you gain another token, and perhaps a surprise 2/2 first striking blocker!

      Selesnya (green/white) decks love cards like the Attended Knight for reasons like Parallel Lives. With the Parallel Lives out, you gain three creatures for three mana, and then a Cloudshift would gain you two more. With multiple Parallel Lives out, you could gain an army. Running it then with Intangible Virtue, and you are in business.

     Outside of doing fancy things to gain greater benefits, it is still a solid card. Two for one and the first strike make this a very good card!
