Silent Sentinel is one of the newest "Magic: The Gathering" cards spoiled today Jan. 11, 2014 from Wizards of the Coast's upcoming expert expansion set "Born of the Gods." Revealed in a post on MtgSalvation.com, Silent Sentinel is one of five prerelease cards from the highly anticipated set.
Silent Sentinel - 5WW
Creature - Archon (Rare)
Whenever Silent Sentinel attacks, you may return target enchantment card from your graveyard to the battlefield.
Silent Sentinel's power scales quickly depending on the other components of your deck. Thanks to "Theros" there's a plethora of enchantment creatures such as Boon Satyr, Hopeful Eidolon, or Celestial Archon to gain value with. Should your opponent somehow manage to deal with your indestructible Heliod, God of the Sun or Thassa, God of the Sea you'll be able to bring them back too.
Silent Sentinel works particularly well with enchantments that work as removal like Chained to the Rocks or Detention Sphere. Because Silent Sentinel's ability triggers when it attacks, you'll be able to use the auras to Pacify any potential blockers. Other auras that go away such as Ordeal of Heliod or Murder Investigation make a fine target to recur, and getting a lost Gift of Immortality is the gift that keeps on giving.
How will you use Silent Sentinel?
