    Oh look lee sin decks got a new toy to play with. Is it better or worse than Zenith Blade? It makes the combo more slower but also more reliable so I am unsure what to think about this card :/

    Best-case scenario, you spend 3 mana to play this on turn 3, then you get the buff spell at the start of turn 6. The buff itself is quite strong, especially if you can duplicate it with Taric. However, Taric and his decks are very weak right now, and I don't think this can propel them into competitiveness. Without Taric, I just don't see who wants this; Lee Sin certainly doesn't.

    It's terrible if you don't play it on curve, it's unplayable vs. aggro because of the negative tempo of spending 3 mana on turn 3 with no payoff until turn 6, and control decks can typically deal fine with the buffed unit later on, especially if you telegraph your move 3 turns in advance. If people start running landmark removal, then that's another weakness.

    Even with a landmark synergy-heavy deck, I can't see this card ever being good. 1/5

    I don't think this work in Lee Sin decks neither Targon nor Ionia have any way to accelerate countdown, so you won't get this until turn 6, that deck early game is not the best, so you can't afford a 3 mana do nothing. Zenith Blade is still the better choice since it level up you Lee Sin faster.

    I think that this will find a home in Shurima.
