Lagonna-Band Trailblazer from 'Journey Into Nyx'

See also

Lagonna-Band Trailblazer is one of the newest Magic: The Gathering cards from Wizards of the Coast's expert expansion set Journey Into Nyx. Featured in the Mortals of Myth intro pack, Lagonna-Band Trailblazer is a cheap heroic creature which can quickly grow in size.

Lagonna-Band Trailblazer - W
Creature - Centaur Scout (Common)
Heroic - Whenever you cast a spell that targets Lagonna-Band Trailblazer, put a +1/+1 counter on Lagonna-Band Trailblazer.
Go forth with honor, return with glory.

Lagonna-Band Trailblazer can slow down your opponent's early advances, thanks to its large toughness of four. It's that high toughness which keeps it out of the range of Lightning Strike, Magma Jet, and Searing Blood. After being targeted a few times, say by an Ajani's Presence or bestow creature such as Observant Alseid Lagonna-Band Trailblazer easily becomes a massive defensive creature that your opponent will need to use their Hero's Downfall or other removal spell on if they want to pass by.

Lagonna-Band Trailblazer may not be the sexiest creature, however we can easily see it being in the sideboard of some decks to help deal with aggressive Gruul, Boros, and Rakdos strategies.
