Quote from ryansaxe »Everybody here seems to be saying that the white one is okay/serviceable at four mana, and I just don't agree. I would never include this in a W aggro deck because of how lackluster the ability is for 4cc. If you neeed to jam two blockers against aggro, fine, but outside of that I can't imagine wanting to cast the Call the Cavalry variant. So if I'm evaluating the card starting at 5cc, it's basically a top-end card. I think it's worse than all of the 5cc white threats that we don't include, and that the X casting cost here is making people not make that comparison. Casting it for X = 1 or 2 is emergency mode, and while it's nice that that mode exists, I don't think it bumps it from "card I would never consider" to "card I'm going to test".
I hope I'm proven wrong. I just don't see it.
It often times is just a large echo chamber with inbred discussion birthed from this so called "Design Thesis".

I simply said nobody is drafting it for the main anymore.
My players seem to enjoy building around problems seeking solutions, and just because they do so, doesn't mean they are casual players. At least in the context and in relation to your draft format.
