Love the art work on this one. The ability sounds really useful too. This will definitely help to blunt aggro mages and with the card being Novice, anybody can include it in their spellbook for cheap. Cool card.
This is a spell just crying for a Warlord Familiar to cast it! To take a spell action to cast a guard token is a heavy time investment for a mage to do... but to have a spell-casting familiar take on this little beauty? Awesome.
