You may play Masako the Humorless any time you could play an instant.
Tapped creatures you control may block as though they were untapped.
Konda's servants dared not neglect their duties for a moment under Masako's icy gaze, knowing that what she saw, Lord Konda would hear.

This card TRIES to be useful. Sure it can do a combat trick for a turn, but even then, this card isn't useful enough to play. This basically gives a wanna be vigilance which isn't worth much...

The Duck's Rating: 2/5

The ability to just drop it on the field during combat is nice and the pseudo vigilance can be useful. 2/5

Hmm... But it could be more than pseudo-vigilance, in that it can work with Tap abilities as well, and the really gay Sandsower, so I guess it's not too bad, but Oathsword Giant is slightly better in its ability.

The abilities are not worthy the cost. Nuff' said.

All this allows you to do is do a combat trick for one turn, really. I'd rather play Vigilance, and even that card isn't worth it to me. If it was an enchantment that cost 2 and couldn't be played as an instant, then it would be worth playing.

1.5/5. Vigilance is a 2/5 in my book. It's nice on creatures, but I don't want to waste mana and deck space just to give my creatures vigilance.

This card is useful for maybe one try, being 2/1 it's way too easy to kill.

Oathsworn Giant...
Anyway, meh... Not great, and one ping owns it, so not much use actually.

A card that screams in the nick of time.

Your opponent is going to whack you, you play this, and watch him/her scream in agony.

As I said, it's only useful for one turn, so you'll like it in your hand. >_<

Not very useful, but Selesnya decks with extra space might wanna fill the blank up with this.
