Nyx-Fleece Ram from 'Journey Into Nyx'

See also

Nyx-Fleece Ram is one of most hilariously awesome cards we've seen from Wizards of the Coast's expert "Magic: The Gathering" expansion set "Journey Into Nyx." With draw-dropping art, a fantastic ability, and high toughness Nyx-Fleece Ram is cearly not a lamb meant for slaughter and will be blocking your opponent's threats all day long while you reap the rewards.

Nyx-Fleece Ram - 1W
Enchantment Creature - Sheep (Uncommon)
At the beginning of y our upkeep, you gain 1 life.
The gods are fascinated by innocence, perhaps because it's a quality they themselves lack.

Nyx-Fleece Ram comes down early, creating a roadblock for any rival's threats. As each turn passes, you'll gain an additional point of life. Nyx-Fleece Ram is stronger the sooner it enters the battlefield, potentially helping you gain five or more life over the course of a game.

Nyx-Fleece Ram can help you trigger Angelic Accord if you can manage to gain another three life, say from Path of Bravery or Trostani, Selesnya's Voice. Another card in Standard that interacts nicely with Nyx-Fleece Ram is Archangel of Thune, which will allow all your creatures to gain +1/+1 counters whenever you gain life. In time it'll transform your innocent sheep into a terrifying monster (provided you don't kill your adversary with your other threats first). Sanguine Bond will slowly drain your enemy's life total.

We're looking forward to drawing cards from Drogskol Reaver in commander, and perhaps flipping that Chalice of Life.
