Card Me: A favorite hobby of mine is playing card games. There is just something really remarkable about how laying cardboard onto a table can bring people together for lots of fun/frustration. As a naturally shy person in real life, I enjoy how card games can bring me out of my shell for quite the social activity.
Behold one of the strongest commons in Magic: The Gathering.
Ethereal Armor just rocks on so many levels. It honestly should not have been a common. When used in an appropriate deck (cough* Hexproof), Ethereal Armor pays for itself and then some.
Basically, Ethereal Armor is efficient because it only costs one to play, boosts your creature by (+1/1 x the number of enchantments you control, including itself) and tacks on a powerful first strike aspect.
There aren’t many cards that can match this kind of power for this mana cost, especially in this current set of Standard (that is sadly going to be rotating soon.)
Ethereal Armor is almost ban-worthy in terms of its capabilities. It’s that good of a card.
