Honor Guard

Honor Guard
I remember using this guy all the time in drafts back in the day. It's an alright 1-drop because of it's defensive firebreathing. Need to stop that Phyrexian Obliterator without sacrificing many permanents? Just pump this guy up and you're fine! There are a ton of times where I'd love to have a 1-drop that can stop pretty much any trampler and this really fits the bill. However, there are some problems with the card. First and foremost, it's only defensive firebreathing, meaning that no matter what you pump into this, it's still going to do only 1 damage. It's basically a wall with an upkeep cost of X, where X is equal to the power of the thing you want to stop. Really, this is a good draft filler card and not much else.

Pros: Cheap defensive firebreather
Cons: Only a cheap defensive firebreather
Rating: 1.5/5
