Herald of Dromoka
 
You probably noticed already that this card's art is a mirror of Herald of Anafenza, from Khans of Tarkir. It might have been cool if its ability had also had something to do with +1/+1 counters, but it's actually still pretty good as it is - though vigilance is not the ability people generally feel is most necessary for Warrior creatures, it can help in matchups against creature decks. And besides, there are times when you just need another 2/2 for two mana.
 
As someone who's been around long enough to actually have actually played the red-green Warrior tribal deck from the Lorwyn era, it's also funny to me that there are now more tribal bonuses for the current white-black Warrior deck than there were for that one.

Today's card of the day is Herald of Dromoka which is a two mana White
2/2 with Vigilance that also grants other warriors you control Vigilance.  With twenty warriors in White's pool of Standard choices, more when you add older formats or additional colors, there is quite a bit of potential in a tribal build.  This is very likely to see play, probably in Black/White add options and access to the power or toughness enhancing Chiefs.
 
In Limited this is a very strong uncommon that can be picked fairly early in Booster after a White or Warrior first pick as it works well by itself and add potential support in any stage of the game. In Sealed the single White is easily worked into multi-color decks, though even as a
2/2 with Vigilance it isn't worth splashing unless multiple warriors are present.
