Elspeth, Sun's Champion
(Ochoa) It takes quite a bit of effort to attack through Elspeth's tokens without the help of evasive creatures, and she can deal with the larger ones with her -3 ability. The combination of those two abilities make it very difficult for many creature-based decks to beat the card. Oftentimes, players will have to overcommit creatures to the Battlefield, opening themselves up to Supreme Verdict or other Wrath effects against control decks. Elspeth also plays well in other archetypes, and can be used well as a control card in creature decks. She functions well when a Retribution of the Meek isn't what you need, furthering your game plan of attacking your opponent. Additionally, Elspeth's ultimate is quite threatening and will win many games on the spot, which makes it especially good in conjunction with other creatures.
