Why isn't this card a solid beater in a control deck? It seems to be simply because of Monastery Mentor, but i am not really sure if it was played before Mentor was printed.
It dodges basically all removal ever, pitches to force, 3 power, great with equips, kills/dodges Jace.
Mentor still fills similar roles, in regards to effective evasion to removal and power.
So it is ever worth playing? Worth playing if you aren't playing white?
