Call of the Conclave
 
This card is, in a way, the more on-theme equivalent of Watchwolf. I'm a little sad not to see the Wolf himself back, to be honest, especially since this version is susceptible to Negate and Izzet Charm (thanks a lot, Wizards). At the same time, it's hard to be too critical of getting a 3/3 creature for two mana. And there are times when you'll be glad to have this card around - populate is genuinely tantalizing, and Chandra the Firebrand is occasionally a thing too.

Today's card of the day is Call of the Conclave which is a two mana Green and White that puts a 3/3 Green centaur token into play.  This is a nice homage to Watchwolf for a token deck, though the token isn't both colors which may impact the support used in the final build.  Overall a clear addition to a Populate or token theme that will see frequent play.
 
In Limited a two mana 3/3 is a very aggressive card and there is no reason not to play it in a Selesnya build in Sealed, but is probably not worth splashing into another deck as it is otherwise vanilla and the lack of Populate removes appeal.  A good second or later pick in Booster after a Green/White first choice that can be supported with a variety of other cards in the set.

     Welcome to the Pojo.com card of the day section. Today we are looking at the Call of the Conclave from Return to Ravnica. Call of the Conclave is an uncommon green and white sorcery that costs one green and one white mana. Call of the Conclave puts a 3/3 Green Centaur creature token onto the battlefield. 

    I love the Call of the Conclave. Mainly because it is like getting a Watchwolf from old Ravnica. But better, since you can Populate the token, not the Watchwolf. And building an army of 3/3's, starting turn two, means that it can get out of hand fast, and that is what the Selesnyan's are all about. 

    The only downside is that I really wish this card could have been an instant. I think that that would have likely qualified it for rare status, but think that it would have been worth it.
