Wolfir Silverheart
 
One question I have about Innistrad regards whether they will feel in the future that any werewolf creature should also be a double-faced card. I mention it because this, to me, is obviously a werewolf, yet it doesn't have that written on the type line. You'd think I'd be used to this, considering that Goblin King wasn't a goblin when I started playing, but I still wonder. It's hard to argue with what the card does, though. Playing the Silverheart effectively adds twelve power to your side of the table at once, which is a bargain at any cost; if your deck also includes some way to protect it, any new creature is potentially a game-ending threat, recalling the recurring danger of cards like Umezawa's Jitte. It's also the perfect "lord" for a soulbond-themed deck.

Welcome back readers todays card of the day is an interesting mid-range creature that can deal tons of damage. In standard this card has been seeing an increase in playing making two creatures into must deal with threats with its soul bound ability and presenting a powerful body for a minimum mana investment making it a solid, but unexciting card to discuss. In block constructed it is also making a huge splash as a premier creature for beating people down. In legacy and vintage this is expensive at five mana so I don’t see it making a big impact in these formats. In casual and multiplayer the ability to flicker this creature in and out makes for interesting combat scenarios and aside from that it has highly relevant creature types wolf and warrior that is just a huge for tribal relevant cards. In limited it’s a bomb and should be taken almost always unless there is something like Bonfire of The Damned. Overall this is just a big fat creature that does the job of attacking and putting pressure on opponents quite well.

Today's card of the day is Wolfir Silverheart which is a Green five mana
4/4 with Soulbond that gives itself and another creature it is paired with +4/+4.  This is already proving to be a dominant force in the tournament scene and as a source of twelve power and toughness for just five mana it shouldn't be a surprise.  Even without a second Soulbond creature as a target any creature, particularly those with beneficial effects, works with this to become a game threatening duo.  Acceleration can bring this out earlier and just about any Green build can and will benefit from running at least a few copies.  Overall this is a card to be prepared for as it will likely have representation in many local metagames for a long time to come.
 
In Limited this is a bomb that is only held in check by requiring another creature to gain the additional eight power and toughness.  An easy first pick in Booster and a compelling reason to run Green in Sealed, particularly if another Soulbond creature is available.  The swing in life points this card can cause and drastic shift to the battlefield is more than most decks can handle and it will win games frequently.

       Welcome to another great card of the day review here at Pojo.com! Today we look at the Wolfir Silverheart from Avacyn Restored. Wolfir Silverheart is a rare green creature Wolf Warrior that costs three generic and two green mana for a 4/4. Wolfir Silverheart has Soulbound, and as long as it is paired with another creature, they both get +4/+4.

       Love the Wolfir Silverheart. The ability to gain an 8/8 for just five mana is insane. But the thing I truly love it what else will it end up being? When paired with the Silverblade Paladin you get an 8/8 and a 6/6, each with Double Strike! Or if paired with Wingcrafter, you’ll have 5/5 and 8/8 flyers! And there are so many other combinations. But here is probably my favorite. Pair the Wolfir Silverheart with another Wolfir Silverheart! Then you have a pair of 12/12’s that cost you only five mana each!!
