Gatecrash Preview: Boros Elite

boros eliteHello! White Weenie!

Historically, white weenie decks have largely relied on their one drops to get the party going and dealing 20 points of combat damage as quickly as possible sometimes being backed up with cards like Honor of the Pure. This card follows in that long standing tradition.

Drop one on Turn 1 then another on Turn 2 and follow up with a Skynight Legionnaire to deal insane amounts of damage as early as Turn 3. If they make an Relentless Assault variant, it can get out of hand rather fast. (As the +2/+2 will happen on the first attack step then carry on to the second one on top of another +2/+2 bonus)

I’m not sure if we will see any kind of equipment support in this set as the Boros Legion really need it. Perhaps a Sunforger reprint? I’m sure some people would love that. However, seeing as how Standard just gets more and more creature-based as of late, this card might end up being a bit underwhelming at first.

So, right now we would need some nice two-drops to be spoiled in the Boros guild. Aaaaaaaaaany time now….
