Quote from TheOnlyOne652089 »Its terrible.
You need to gain 5+ life to be worth a card.
And even then you really only want this if you get tremendous amounts of life that wins you the game against burn.
If you ever want to play a card like this, just run Kitchen Finks and friends, this card is just "bad".
Nylea's Disciple was a decent "filler" for limited. A 2/2 body is much worse and this is kinda showing that they pump cards up in the rarity for no reason at all (this is a terrible uncommon).
If this would have Escape it would be a contender, but like this, its utter trash ...
Quote from Lectrys »I've seen Nylea's Disciple very occasionally in Modern Green Devotion deck sideboards. I'd rather the life gain cost 3 mana than 4 mana, even if the body now gets Grim Lavamancered and trades with Modern Burn's creatures instead of surviving against most of them. Easy swap for those decks.
